Recital FAQ

*Our tots ballet/tumble tots and pre-school ballet/jazz/acro dancers DO NOT participate in our Spring Recital at the Milton Centre for the Arts. They do however have an in-house performance on Saturday, June 9th. Schedule will be released soon.

*All classes in the Spring Recital will perform both nights and with the same routine. 

*Dancers are expected to wear their hair in a high bun with light make-up for the dress rehearsal and both shows. Ask at the desk if you have questions. Dancers will also need the proper tights and shoes as per The Dance Class dress code.

*Dancers must be signed in and out by a parent/guardian for all rehearsals, dress rehearsals and shows. Please be patient as sometimes this can be a time consuming process, however it is necessary to insure the safety of our dancers.


Photo Day 2018

Class and individual photos will be taken at The Dance Class on May 15, 16 and 19, 2018 by ‘Photography by Gary Roork.” Please confirm your child”s time on the detailed schedule attached to this email.
All students in our Tots and Pre-School classes are asked to wear their all pink uniform, preferably without a skirt of any kind. Dancers will be provided with a matching tutu and crown for their picture.
Recital costumes will only be sent home once account balances and costume balances have been paid in full.
All students are requested to be present for their class picture. Class pictures will be displayed at the studio and are a great memento of the season. After the group photo shoot, students will also have a single shot taken in their costume. There is no obligation to purchase these photos and you will be able to view the picture before you purchase. Please arrive 20 minutes before your child”s scheduled time, since the photo shoot may run ahead of schedule. Due to photographer availability, there will be no photography make-up dates, and we will be unable to accommodate latecomers.
Whenever possible, please arrive for your picture with your costume on (with a suitable cover-up to avoid damaging the costume) There will be limited changing space and parents will be unable to accompany their child past the front lobby.
Photos will be available for sale at the recital (before the show and at intermission.), and at the Pre-School/Tots ballet Open House. The cost is $15 per combo which includes a group and an individual shot. Only cash or cheques will be accepted. No credit cards or debit can be used for photo packages.
Photo Day Hair and Make-Up
For female students in the recital, we recommend light stage make-up: lipstick, blush, eye shadow (earth tones preferred), and mascara. For Pre-School and Tots ballet, a little lip gloss or lipstick is all you need!
For photo day ONLY you may wear your hair how you would like. It is suggested that all female students wear their hair up off their face and neck (high bun preferred).
Please make sure your son/daughter has the appropriate tights and shoes to wear with his or her costume. All tights are available at the desk.
