2021 Recital Information

We are kicking our heels up and jumping for joy to share recital 2021 news!!!

We are so excited to announce our plans for our 32nd Annual Recital, “And the Beat Goes On.”  It may not be like any of our past recitals but it is sure to be one of our best ones yet.  It will be held at the beautiful Irish Cultural Center in Canton. We have June 13th-June 17th booked.

The plan is to have our Dress Rehearsal on Sunday, June 13th. Multiple recitals will be held on Monday-Thursday (June 14th-17th) from 6-8pm. We are still working out the details and many factors will be based on the Covid guidelines as we move through June. We may need to use Sunday the 13th for actual Recital and have to eliminate Dress Rehearsal.

Here are some of the wonderful amenities for our Recital this year:
*Beautiful outdoor covered venue with plenty of room for social distancing
*Changing area inside for dancers
*Shorter performances with limited audience (based on guidelines)
*Pub concession window open for food and drinks during the performances
*Recital will be videotaped and downloads available of each performance
*Possible livestream will be available for each show as well

We have been working super hard on putting all the plans together to make it a memorable and fun recital for everyone. As with everything Covid related, it will be an evolving process.  We cannot make any solid plans as far as who is in what show at this point until we have more specifics on guidelines. We are hoping to have our Intermediate 1 and older dancers in 2 shows if we can make it work. Mini-movers, pre-school, kindergarten, Primary 1 & 2 classes will do 1 show.

Please know we cannot make any guarantees on siblings being in the same shows as each other. There are many moving factors this year and that is not one we can guarantee.  There will be many changes this year with a different facility, different costs etc. (Please see below for information on our Recital Package that will be incorporated for each dancer this year)

ALL INCLUSIVE RECITAL PACKAGE FOR EACH DANCER

This year we are making things easier for everyone and bundling our normal recital costs all into 1 fee. This will be a mandatory fee that each  dancer will need to pay in order to participate in recital.

The package cost will be $95 for each dancer and will include the following:
Dress Rehearsal & Performance Fee
2 General Admission Tickets to 1 Performance
Digital Download of 1 Recital
2021 Recital T-shirt
2021 Recital Commemorative Pin & CERT
Face mask for performance (we will provide so that all are the same coloring)

RECITAL FEES WILL BE DUE BY MAY 15TH
** We are not sure at this point what the exact number of audience members will be allowed. If there is availability we will have additional recital tickets available for sale. We are certain we will be able to plan the recitals that each dancer will be allowed the 2 tickets limit within guidelines. If we need to add in multiple smaller shows we will plan for that.

We know the past year has been crazy and some are apprehensive about paying for costumes for another season. We have gone back and forth with this and would like to keep as much normalcy for the dancers as we can. We are positive we will have a recital this season. It may not be in an inside auditorium but will be special however we make it work.  We are pushing our ordering of costumes out to January just in case we decide to make a shift to something different due to any new information that may come out. This will give you more time to make a final decision on ordering costumes. In order to receive costumes in time for a June recital they need to be ordered in January at the latest (already we will be cutting it close and some may arrive on the later side).

In order to break up the cost of the costumes so you are not paying one big lump sum we will require a $35.00 deposit for each costume by NOVEMBER 30TH. Costume deposits will be invoiced in our system and we will send an email invoice out in the next couple of days with your deposit amount.

You can also go online to compudance to check your deposit amount. Please let us know if your amount is not in the system correct. It may be a day or two before all invoices are in the system.

**You will receive a balance sheet in January with the remainder balance due by the week of January 15th.

Refunds for costume deposits will only be issued up to January 5th. After this date all balances in full will be expected to be paid on costumes by January 15th.

**IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO OPT OUT OF RECITAL AT THIS POINT PLEASE EMAIL US BACK ASAP SO WE WILL NOT INVOICE YOU A COSTUME DEPOSIT

Child Size: $65 Adult Size: $70 Ensemble Team Costumes: $75
Pre-school & Mini-Movers – will have 1 costume

Payments Online/Automatic Credit Card Withdrawal

Please remember you can make payments online through compudance. Once there is an invoice in the system you have the ability to make a payment with your credit card online through compudance if you have paid the $10 membership fee. This membership should be paid and updated by anyone that has a credit on automatic withdrawal. Please remember if you have a card in the system your card will AUTOMATICALLY be charged for your costume deposit on the November 30th. Please let us
know if your deposit amount is not correct.

*** 2021 DRESS REHEARSAL/RECITAL DATES**
Our Dress Rehearsal and Recital dates have been tentatively penciled in at Oliver Ames High School for June 11th and 12th (times TBA) and obviously we may need to switch to a different venue or a different date depending on what the regulations will be at that time. We may have to break our recitals into multiple smaller shows and there will be no guarantee that siblings will be in the same show as each other.
