Performance Information Letter

Dear Yellow Rose Dancers, It is show time again and we are in full swing preparing for the upcoming show.  All Yellow Rose students are invited to participate in the performance.  I assume everyone will participate and will bill your account for fees due unless you tell me otherwise. 

Winter Program now has two performances. 

Weekday students in Show #1 and Weekend students in Show #2.

The Winter Program will be scheduled for the first weekend after Winter Break.

Spring Showcase now has two performance. 

Weekday students in Show #1 and Weekend students in Show #2. 

The Spring Recital Showcase is scheduled for the last weekend in June

Parent Volunteers: We need parent volunteers per class to assist with students at Dress Rehearsal and Performance.  Your job will be to receive and check in students, help with costumes, watch students in the holding tank back stage, usher onto the stage, then retrieve from the stage, and then check students back to respective parents.  This job requires approximately one hour of time total.  You will be able to watch your dancer from the side stage or from the audience, which ever you prefer.  You will not miss watching your child's dance.  I promise.  Let Miss Lisa know if you can be of service.  Most classes need two volunteers. Thanks.


In Studio Extra Practice:  This very important practice allows all classes to practice the production numbers together.  It saves time at the theatre and helps your student know where their routine falls in the order of the show.  There is not enough room in the studio for parents to stay and watch so this is a drop off practice.  This practice schedule takes place during the week leading up to the upcoming show.
MONDAY 4:15-6:15PM, TUESDAY 4:15-6:15PM, WEDNESDAY 4:15-6:15PM, THURSDAY 4:15-6:15PM(Sometimes Saturdays 10:00am-2:00pm)
Creative & Preschool 1 practice will be at Dress Rehearsal On Stage

practice 4:15-6:15pm

On Stage Dress Rehearsal:  This very important rehearsal allows you and your student to have a trial run of the upcoming show on stage.   It requires full costumes, make-up and hair done according to your class requirements.  It gives you time to fix costumes, make-up and hair if anything went wrong or fell apart.  This also allows the music and stage crew to practice their technical cuesTo ensure that costumes stay safe for the actual performance, it is important that regular dance clothes or street clothes be worn to and from the theatre.
At the end of the school year Spring Recital Showcase, Miss Lisa uses 30 minutes for Yellow Rose Awards.
