WHAT IS IT? WHO CAN BE IN IT?
Our Christmas Spectacular is our annual production done in December that features new choreographic works each year. Apprentice & Open Company members are expected to participate. Adult students and parents are invited to participate! Drop in students or kids on class passes can not participate.
WHEN IS IT?
Our 7th Annual Christmas Spectacular will be the weekend of December 18th-19th at a local venue. The exact venue and exact times of the show(s) are TBD. If you decide to participate, you must be available and flexible during the show weekend, *the week before the show (known as "show week"), and the scheduled rehearsals
*Most dancers will not be needed each day of show week, however keep your calendar open to be scheduled.
WHAT FEES ARE THERE?
There is a showcase fee of $75 per dancer to participate. This fee partially covers venue rental, rehearsal time, choreography, one costume and also includes a showcase t-shirt. This fee will be automatically charged to your card on file on Wednesday, October 21st unless you are an Apprentice. Apprentice Company Members have this fee worked into their additional fee plans.
Additional costume items such as black spandex shorts, black leggings, ballet tights and dance shoes may still need to be purchased through WEAVE if not already owned. Depending on which pieces you are in there may be an additional costume fee of up to $20 per dancer that will be charged to your card on November 15th. You will find out if we need this fee from you when you register.
Tickets will also need to be purchased by anyone coming to view the show.
WHAT ARE REHEARSALS LIKE FOR WITTLE WEAVIN STUDENTS?
All 1st Grade and Under students will be rehearsing during their designated class times beginning when we return from fall break, October 19th. During this time it is very important to stay consecutive in class!
WHAT ARE REHEARSALS LIKE FOR LEVELED CLASS STUDENTS?
All rehearsals for company members who participate in leveled classes (1/2 or 3/4) will have rehearsals starting November 1st as well as some choreography tutorial videos to learn on their own time. The in person rehearsals are scheduled out in advance on different days of the week/weekend. Please review the rehearsal schedule before committing to be in the spectacular.
HOW CAN ADULTS PARTICIPATE?
ADULTS: 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.
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!
WHAT IF I HAVE CONFLICTS WITH A FEW REHEARSALS?
Please communicate your conflicts when registering for the spectacular. Our rehearsal policy is listed when registering and will explain what takes place when a dancer misses a rehearsal.
