Attendance this semester is extremely important for recital participants. Each of our lovely dancers are vital instruments to the piece their class is preparing to perform. All dancers must be present weekly in order for them to successfully rehearse choreography, timing, formations and staging. This is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to experience and learn from working as a team and the gratification that can be experienced when it all comes to life on stage!
Mark the rehearsal and show dates on your calendar.
Make sure to check the spelling of your dancer’s name on the studio info board, next time you are at Balance, to ensure it is printed correctly in the program.
Be sure you have the appropriate dance shoes and tights (where applicable) for your dancers.
We will soon be sending out information on purchasing recital DVDs, a sweet message to your dancer in the recital program, flower bouquets, and tickets ($10 pre-purchased, $12 at the door).
Invite friends and family to come watch your dancer perform 🙂
Dress Rehearsal – DATE CHANGE – THURSDAY, MAY 11th, from 7pm-9:00PM, at LIFE AUSTIN (8901 TX-71, 78735)
Dancers should arrive at least 30 minutes before their estimated call time, ready to go. “Call Time” means that your dancer should be dressed and completely ready to go on stage by that set time.
Professional class pictures will be taken directly after their run through on stage – these photos, as well as optional individual photos, will be available for purchase.
Recital Day – SATURDAY, MAY 13th, at 4:30
Dancers will check in 1 hour before each act in each show in which they are performing.
Parents will check in dancers at the Patton Theater (our dressing room), attached to the main theatre, and can reserve a seat in the auditorium when doors open 20 minutes prior to each show.
Show order for recital will be the same as dress rehearsal order.
Dancers should arrive in full costume, girls’ hair pulled back in a bun (unless alternate directions have been given by teacher on the class recital handout), and stage makeup!
Dancers will ONLY be available for pick-up IN BETWEEN ACTS. Please do NOT come backstage during the show to pick up your dancer. Any dancer who is not picked up during intermission may be picked up after the show.
Dancers 12 years old and up can check themselves out to watch the remainder of the show from the auditorium, but must make sure they have collected all of their belongings before exiting the dressing room area.
If you need to leave the auditorium for any reason during the show, please use one of the back two exits, and exit between dance numbers, to keep disruption at a minimum!
Let friends and family know to arrive at least 30 minutes before the show, in order to get their tickets from will-call, and be there to get a seat when the doors open.
We will have concessions and some retail items available for purchase before and after the show, as well as during intermission, so please bring cash for purchases!

Ask your family, friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles and local businesses to sponsor a picture page for your dancer! Students can be pictured together with a fellow dancer and the families can share the expense. DEADLINE IS APRIL 28TH!
