Recital 2 dressed rehearsal will be June 3rd beginning at 2 pm.

 

Finale Rehearsal
We will rehearse the finales for recitals on May 22nd at the studio before dress rehearsal so we can work out the details and timing of the finale before dressed rehearsal. These rehearsals are not mandatory but we encourage all to participate that can so your child will be more prepared and confident at dressed rehearsal and recital. Recital 1 finale rehearsal is from 1 pm to 2 pm. Recital 2 students will rehearse from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm. The  Competition Team parents will be having a bake sale and other goodies for sale in the parking lot during these rehearsals to raise money to travel to Disney for Dance Team competitions this summer.

Recital Tickets

We’re working with TutuTix again this year to make it easier for you to get tickets. Gone are the days of coming to the studio, waiting in line, and spending your valuable time purchasing tickets. The free tickets you receive for your paid recital fee will also be available through this process. You will receive a code via email prior to tickets going on sale to use on their web site so that you may select your free tickets. Each code is unique so don’t share your codes with anyone. The code will only be emailed to families who have all fees paid. The codes will be emailed by April 21st.

Tickets will go on sale May 6th at 8:00 am. At that time, you can purchase tickets in the following ways:

  • Go to our special TutuTix page on your computer, tablet, or smart phone  at     www.tututix.com/BalletWestside

  • Go to their Facebook Fan Page facebook.com/tututix and click the “Buy Tickets” tab at the top

  • Take the link at the top of this website

  • Or just call 855-222-2TIX

 

Parents will receive 4 comp tickets with their paid recital fee of $45.00 and 6 comp tickets for families with more than 1 student with a paid recital fee of $55.00. Additional tickets can be purchased at this time.

 

Ticket prices will be:

Adult (Ages 19+): $15.00

Student (Ages 13-18): $10.00

Child (Ages 3-12): $8.00


 Note that you will need a credit or debit card to buy tickets, and that tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis. So, buy early to get better seats!

You’ll have several options for how you want your ticket delivered. You can have it emailed to you, sent to your mobile phone internet browser, and even add it to your Apple Passbook at no charge. Or, you can choose to have TutuTix mail you foil-embossed keepsake tickets for an additional fee– with your dancer’s name printed directly on the ticket!

 Students in the recital will not need a ticket as they will remain backstage to perform their dance routines and recital finale.

 

Practice DVDs                                       

Most classes for the younger students have their recital dance practice DVDs made. If you haven’t received one, please check at the studio desk.

 

Snack Money                                    

Parents, please send snack food or money for snacks with your child. Most children are hungry after school and need a snack of some kind. We are having more and more of the students asking for food at the studio.

 

Recital T-Shirts                      

T-shirts will be ordered on May 16th. The shirts will be white in a tri-poly blend cotton that is extra soft with black/pink lettering. There will be a design on the front and names of all students participating in recital on the back. Shirts will be available in child and adult sizes. They should run the same size as last year's recital T's. There are size samples located in the lobby of last year's recital T's. The cost is $20.00 each. Extras will be ordered but to guarantee the correct size and quantity available. We  would suggest pre-ordering your shirt. Order forms will be available at the desk and need to be pre-paid. Orders need to be turned in by May 16th.
