SHOW #3 at 6:30pm - Company Showcase
A parent should drop their dancer at the drop off location in the lobby of the theater ONLY 15 mins before their scheduled recital start time, NOT EARLIER. Parents will not come into the holding room unless they are volunteering, thank you for understanding. DON’T SEND ANYTHING BACKSTAGE - JUST WHAT THE KIDDO NEEDS WITH THEIR DANCE SHOES ON… no IPADS/PHONES etc. Kids are safe and having fun! If your dancer has quick changes, you can walk her/his costumes back to the holding room, then please exit the theater in between dances to help them change.
DISMISSAL PROCESS - PLEASE, PLEASE READ: After each show, we will CLOSE THE CURTAIN and hold all dancers on stage. One parent that Ms. Amy, Ms. Liane or Ms. Melissa knows will come all the way backstage as soon as the show ends to pick up their dancer. This process seems busy, but it is extremely smooth and only takes 10 minutes. Please exit the stage as quickly as possible to expedite this process. You can then collect anything backstage and take photos with family and your dancer in the theater/lobby

T-shirts are $25.00 each and WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND that each dancer purchase one. We wear them in the annual North Royalton Parade which takes place in the summer… you can’t march without one. You do not need it for the dance recital. See sizing chart on the order form. We won’t have a sizing kit this year. All dancers’ names will be listed on back. And SHIRT SUPER NICE & SOFT!!!
Photos and Videos During Recital
You can step into the aisle to film your dancer or use your phone from your seat! I am begging you to be mindful of other spectators --- I am positive this will go smoothly. However- NO! NO! Flash photography! It is distracting to the dancers! We have NOT hired a professional videographer due availability of a reputable company.
NRDA's Photo Day with Elizabeth Glorioso Photography. Wednesday May 17th and Thursday May 18th. Please bring all your costumes to your photo session. Your private 5-minute session will be next door at Beyond Words. Photo packages are prepaid at the time of your appointment with the best pose selected by the photographer.

Tights, Costumes & Make-Up
We will be ordering students our house brand tights which are $14.00. Please see the size chart on the attached form for tight orders. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND OUR TIGHTS!!! Please just select on order form Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical or Acro.
Costumes will be sent home in early May (some have already gone home). Please take the costume out of the bag and hang on a hanger in a safe, dry place. Be sure to write your child’s name on the costume, shoes, and tights.
You may choose your dancer’s show make-up colors. The stage is a far distance from the audience, so make sure to apply enough make-up (base, eye shadow, mascara, blush, lipstick). Some classes may make specific recommendations. You will be notified if that is the case.
Tights/Shoes/Hair Link: Teacher proof shoes/hair/song - Google Sheets
We will be using SIGNUPGENIUS.com online this year. Ms. Amy prefers less people doing a great job rather than tons of people doing nothing! But we still need help. More details to follow a week before the show. If you are volunteering backstage, you CAN’T SNEAK INTO THE THEATER during the show. (Sorry!) If you are volunteering, please clear with Ms. Amy regarding any dancer’s siblings you plan to take into the dressing rooms. Sorry dads…let’s stick to mom volunteers due to costume changes. We ask that parents stay out of backstage if they are not volunteering due to safety, security and privacy of dancers.
