“Passport to Dance”  end of season performance!

Passport-to-Dance-Preview-2016(1)

 

We are so excited to present our 15th annual dance recital at the Count Basie!  Dance is a performance art, and the recital is like our big game! Our teachers have worked hard choreographing routines that re-enforce basics, introduce new skills, and provide an opportunity to develop perforce skills.  Our dancers have worked so hard this year and are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to do want dancers do – PERFORM!!

Special Gifts for all our Students!!

Each of our amazing Kick dancers in the 2016 performance receives a free “Passport to Dance” tee shirt (a $20 value) , a free professional DVD (a $55 value per show!!), a dance theme trophy, and an invitation to our RED CARPET DVD Premiere party!!  It’s our way of saying THANK YOU for an outstanding year:)  (All our dancers should have also received a 15th anniversary tote bag.  If you did not get yours, please inquire at your next class!)

Seating and the Order of the show!
Kick makes every effort to make the recital a fun day for both the dancers and the families.  Each Act is about 1 hour long.  We shortened our acts to have fewer dancer backstage at a time, allowing for easier dismissal.    At the end of the show we dismiss from youngest to oldest.  At the end of each act, dancers are dismissed in order to allow every parent to enjoy their child’s performance.  (If we dismiss during the show, your view of your child could be obstructed from other families getting up!)  A variety of dance styles and ages are presented in each act.  This is for both the audience’s entertainment, but also to have a mix of ages backstage and to allow our dancers in multiple classes adequate time to change.  Our tiniest dancers need the most attention!!
If you have one or two dancers in one or two dances you will be enjoying our show for an hour or two!  If you have 3 kids,  you will be enjoying our show for a longer time!!
We TRY to put siblings in the same act, but we cannot promise!  We do take requests through April 15th 2016.

 

Dress Rehearsal
Dress Rehearsals are at Count Basie and are mandatory for all performers.  Dancers should wear their first costume to the theater and bring additional costumes if applicable (Junior and Senior team do not need their team costumes, just new costumes!!)
