Marti's Dance Studio

June 2014 Dance Show

Scheduled the weekend of June 21st.

We at Marti’s Dance Studio believe that the annual Dance Show is a very fulfilling experience for the students. Not only does it give them the opportunity to perform for their family and friends, but it also reaffirms important life skills such as personal responsibility and cooperating with a group

We understand that some students may have other obligations or may not choose to participate, and so we keep the costs associated with the show separate from tuition fees. Ticket sales cover the costs of staging the event and are not included in the tuition fees.

Dance Show Rehearsals

Rehearsals will be schedule during the week of June 16th .

Rehearsal attendance: Scheduled family vacations, family emergencies and work schedule conflicts, are activities that will excuse students from rehearsals.

I am hopeful we can have the same schedule as 2013 for the shows and rehearsals for 2014. The theatre can not tell me until March, 2014 what the drama department class schedule is in order for us to have the schedule set at this time. The times for all three shows will be posted later in the year.

General Information regarding performances

Rehearsals: The rehearsals are mandatory for all students. Summer camps are not excusable.

This past year we had too many students missing rehearsals due to summer camps and theatre commitments. It is not fair to the other students and the teacher to withdraw at the last minute from a group dance rehearsal and affect the quality of that routine, therefore students must attend rehearsals if they want to be in the show.

Tights: Please ask the teacher what size and color tights your daughter is wearing for her number. It is not necessary to purchase new tights if tights from last year have been retained and are the correct color. Tights will be available to purchase the first week of May, so please buy early in case I run out of a particular size. The only store that sells this brand of tights is in San Jose. I will make one trip at the end of May if I run out of a particular size. After May I will not have the time to go to San Jose and you will have to purchase the tights in San Jose.

Flowers: It is a dancer’s tradition to receive flowers at the end of a performance. You may purchase from the dance studio or a flower shop or pick some from your garden. If you order flowers from DeMartini’s, Los Altos you will pick up your bouquets as you enter the theatre.

Show fee: We do not charge a show fee, so we must sell tickets for all of the performances. The tickets will go on sale June 1st and there is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. (Children 5 and under are free). The cost of a ticket for all performances is $15.00. There is no reserved seating. It is not necessary for parents to attend all shows that your child performs in, but if you do attend you will be required to purchase tickets for the shows you attend.

Seating arrangements: There will be no saving of “rows of seats” at the performances. A security person has been hired to help the audience with their seating.

Order forms: picture, flower, DVD and ticket forms will be distributed the first week of May in your child’s class.

We at Marti’s Dance Studio believe that the annual Dance Show is a very fulfilling experience for the students. Not only does it give them the opportunity to perform for their family and friends, but it also reaffirms important life skills such as personal responsibility and cooperating with a group. This show is for the benefit of the students, so there are no auditions, and we encourage every student to participate. We choreograph the show so that every dancer gets a turn at the front of the stage.  More about the shows later in the year.

We understand that some students may have other obligations or may not choose to participate, and so we keep the costs associated with the show separate from tuition fees. Ticket sales cover the costs of staging the event and are not included in the tuition fees.
