Spring Showcase 2021
WHAT IS IT? WHO CAN BE IN IT?
Our Spring Showcase is our annual production done in May that features new choreographic works each year. Apprentice & Open Company members are expected to participate (Apprentice Company members will perform their competition pieces, too! “Glory” with Apprentice & Open Company Members will also be a part of the performance!). Adult students and parents are invited to participate! Drop in students or students who take leveled classes through class passes can not participate.
WHEN IS IT?
Our 8th Annual Spring Showcase will be Thursday, May 27th at Granfalloon Chattanooga (400 E Main St). We will have two show times on this date: 5pm & 7:30pm. Wittle Weavin classes and Transition class will only perform in the 5pm show. 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.
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 Monday, April 12th unless you are an Apprentice. Apprentice Company Members have this fee worked into their additional fee plans.
Additional costume items such as leotard/top, 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 May 1st. 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 CLASSES AND TRANSITIONS CLASS?
All 1st Grade and Under students will be rehearsing during their designated class times beginning the week of March 29th During this time it is very important to stay consecutive in class! They will rehearse in class through the week of show.
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 in class rehearsals starting the week of April 12th (after we return from Spring Break). We will also utilize a few Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays for extra rehearsal time outside of class time. Please review the rehearsal schedule before committing to be in the showcase
HOW CAN ADULTS PARTICIPATE IN ADULT ONLY DANCES?
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!
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.
Registration Deadline: Monday, March 29th
Or continue to read for the leveled class rehearsals before registering..
Rehearsals for leveled class students will mostly take place during class time with some additional time used outside of class time for each dance. The rehearsal schedule below only reflects leveled class rehearsals. It does NOT reflect wittle weavin or transitions class rehearsals (these classes start rehearsals the week of March 29th in class and will remain in class only).
Leveled class students can only participate in dances that their style plan reflects. Each dance is also split up by level, and students should consider what level of class they take each week when choosing which level of dance to participate in for Spring Showcase. For example, if your style plan includes the styles Hip Hop and Contemporary-Funk and you normally take the 1/2 classes in these styles, then you can participate in the Hip Hop/Acro 1/2 and Contemporary-Funk 1/2 dance in the showcase. You will be able to let us know which dances you will participate in when you register. If you are confused at registration, do not hesitate to give us a call at 423-954-0115.
See the rehearsal schedule below. Rehearsals start the week of April 12th, 2021 and will continue through the month of May. Skip to the next month if you do not see any rehearsals.
