FEES

 

There is a showcase fee of $75 per dancer to participate. This fee partially covers venue rental, rehearsal time, choreography, some costume items and also includes a showcase t-shirt. This fee will be automatically charged to your card on file on Friday, October 22nd unless you are an Apprentice. Apprentice Company Members have this fee worked into their additional fee plans.

All attendees will be required to purchase tickets to the show including parents and siblings. We will provide one ticket for one of our shows for students 1st grade and under.

If you do not already have required dance class items, then you will need to purchase them as a base for some costumes. See below for details.

 

COSTUME ITEMS

 

WEAVE will provide some costumes items, but dancers will need to provide their own base items from our WEAVE store that are required dance class wear. See this sheet for additional details on what you need.

 

REHEARSALS: WITTLE WEAVIN & TRANSITIONS CLASSES

 

All 1st Grade and Under students will be rehearsing during their designated class times beginning the week of October 25th. The Transitions: Beatz class will also be rehearsing a dance during their class time starting the week of October 25th. During this time it is very important to stay consecutive in class! They will rehearse in class through the week of show.

 

REHEARSALS: LEVELED CLASSES

All rehearsals for company members who participate in leveled classes (1/2 or 3/4) will have some rehearsals in class and some rehearsals outside of class. When done outside of class, we will utilize weekends and rehearsal times we have blocked off during the week. Please review the rehearsals on the app before agreeing to participate in the spectacular.

 

REHEARSALS: ADULTS

 

ADULT ONLY CLASSES: Adults who have class passes can participate in the spectacular by using their passes for classes & rehearsals (including one pass for each dress rehearsal and performance days) as well as paying the showcase fee. Adults who are company members only need to pay the showcase fee.  If interested, please register and let us know what dances you would like to be in. You will be able to perform and watch the show, too. Adults who take leveled classes must be a company member to participate 

PARENTS: If you have a child that is participating in the spectacular, parents can participate for FREE (no showcase fee!). All costumes will need to be provided by the parent.

 

REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will be scheduled based on everyone’s availability. There is a section in the showcase participation form to let us know your availability!
