Christmas Show Info

Q and A for the Christmas shows

 

Q: Which show am I in again?

A: The show assignments can be found on this page of our website. Many classes are in multiple shows, so make sure you check all the show for your child’s classes.

 

Q: How early should I arrive at the theatre?

A:        

Rehearsal – 15 minutes early for your assigned rehearsal

Performance – 20 minutes before showtime.

Santa Spectacular – Arrive 6:40 PM – Show 7 PM

Winter Wonderland – Arrive 10:40 PM – Show 11 AM

Holiday Hop – Arrive 2:40 PM – Show 3 PM

 

Q: Can I pick my child up after they dance before the show ends?

A: Unfortunately, we are unable to track who is coming and going during the show. The good news is that each show is around one hour, which will fly by.

 

Q: What should my child wear for the show?

A: Have your child wear their regular dance attire, whatever is appropriate for the class (es) they take. If they take multiple classes, they can add shorts or a t-shirt as appropriate. Please no full outfit changes. Students may add (not required) some festive accessories. (Earrings, a hairpiece, a green and red tutu, etc...)

 

Q: How should I wear my hair?

A: If you have ballet wear it in a bun for the whole show. If you don’t have ballet wear it pull up securely off your face (As you would for dance class, but with a little extra hairspray and gel).

 

Q: My child wears pink tights for Ballet and tan tights for Jazz which colour should they wear?  

A: Wear the pink tights for the entire show!

 

Reminders:

  • Tickets are available at the box office.
  • All 12+ must be fully vaccinated to enter the theatre.
  • Check which entrance is your child’s drop-off and pick-up point during rehearsal.
  • No food backstage. Bring a water bottle.
  • We will have activities backstage to keep young children occupied.
  • Please only bring the necessities of your performance backstage. Minimize dance bags and winter wear to provide maximum space for social distancing.
