Parents it’s the time of year that we have all been looking forward to! Platinum Dance Studio’s First Annual Spring Recital will be held on June 14th and 15th beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Historic Ironwood Theatre. Our last regular classes of the season at the studio will be held the week of June 3rd through June 6th. There will be no practices or classes held on June 10th or 11th of the following week at either the studio or the theatre. On Wednesday, June 12th there will be mandatory tech rehearsals for each class at the Historic Ironwood Theatre. The following day, Thursday, June 13th, we will be holding a mandatory dress rehearsal for all of our dancers. Please take note of the following instructions and rehearsal times in order to ensure that our dancers are prepared, and our first spring recital runs smoothly. If you have any questions, please contact Cheyenne Bull at theplatinumdancestudio@gmail.com or call her at (906)-364-4006. 


RECITAL WEEK SCHEDULE 2019:


Monday, June 10th and Tuesday, June 11thNO practices, classes, or rehearsals at either the theatre or studio


Wednesday, June 12th- Tech Rehearsal @ the Historic Ironwood Theatre


Tech rehearsal allows dancers to get a feel for the stage, learn where to enter and exit the stage, and practice their pieces on stage before performing. You will find the schedule for tech rehearsal times below. Please arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your dancer’s scheduled tech rehearsal time as it is probable that we will be running ahead of schedule. Additionally, dancers have a very limited time for tech rehearsal, so arriving prepared and on time is very important. Please note that this practice is MANDATORY. If your dancer does not show up to their scheduled tech rehearsal, they will not dance at recital. Solos/Duets please see Cheyenne to schedule a time for your tech rehearsal. There is absolutely NO videography or photography allowed at tech rehearsal. If you are seen taking pictures or videos during tech rehearsal, you will be asked to leave IMMEDIATELY. If we find that anyone has posted any photos or videos from tech or dress rehearsal, your child will not be allowed to dance in the recital. So please respect our dancers and choreographers. 


What should my dancer wear to tech rehearsal?

Dancers should wear their normal practice clothes to tech rehearsal, although we would love to see our Platinum apparel onstage.


Where do I drop off my dancer? 

Please use the side entrance door located on Lowell Street. You will walk down the hall and use the side door to enter directly into the main seating area of the theatre. Please do NOT go downstairs during tech rehearsals.

We ask that all dancers, except Tiny Dancers and Hip Hop Minis, stay until the end of rehearsal in order to go over any changes that need to be made. Please pick up your dancer no later than 8:30 p.m.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING DRESS REHEARSAL (Thursday, June 13th) AND RECITAL (Friday, June 14th and Saturday, June 15th):


· Our dancers’ safety is our number one priority. We will have a group of volunteers watching our dancers downstairs in order to ensure that they are safe and to provide help to dancers who have multiple costume changes. One parent/guardian of each dancer (at the most)- female ONLY, our instructors, and our designated volunteers are the ONLY ones that are allowed to be downstairs with our dancers during dress rehearsal and recital. Anyone else who ventures downstairs will be asked to leave immediately. 


· Dancers are NOT allowed to go upstairs to watch other classes perform during dress rehearsal or recital. 


· Dancers may go upstairs to purchase a snack from the concession stand or to mingle with family and friends during the fifteen-minute intermission on both recital nights. If the dancer is wearing a costume, we ask that he or she wear some sort of cover-up while upstairs. 


· Dancers are allowed to bring snacks to both dress rehearsal and recital. Please do not send them with a snack that may potentially get their costume dirty. We recommend pretzels, licorice, and any other snack that is sticky-finger free. Dancers may bring water only as a refreshment, as we do not want any colored or sugary drinks to make a mess downstairs. 


· Dancers are responsible for any and all personal property that they bring downstairs. Platinum Dance Studio is not responsible for anything lost or stolen. We recommend that each dancer write his or her name on all of their personal belongings. Additionally, please do not send your child downstairs with a large amount of cash or any electronics, as we cannot ensure that they won’t be lost or stolen. 


· There is absolutely NO flash photography allowed at tech rehearsal, dress rehearsal, or recital. Additionally, please remember that there is no photography or videography allowed at tech or dress rehearsal. If we find that anyone has posted any photos or videos from tech or dress rehearsal, your child will not be allowed to dance in the recital. So please respect our dancers and choreographers. 


· Again, timeliness is extremely important during recital week in order for our dancers to be prepared and for our show to run smoothly. If your dancer will be late to or cannot make tech rehearsal, dress rehearsal, or recital for any reason, please let Cheyenne know ASAP. 

· Oftentimes, dancers receive flowers from friends and family after the recital. This is by no means required, but we just wanted to give any first-time recital-goers a heads up that this is a common practice! 


· There will be an after-party held after our Saturday night show at El Dorado’s Mexican Restaurant in Hurley. All dancers, parents, and volunteers are welcome to attend!


We are so excited for our dancers to perform the pieces that they have been working so hard on all season! If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering on either night of our recital, please contact Cheyenne Bull at theplatinumdancestudio@gmail.com or call her at (906)-364-4006.
