THEATER POLICIES FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS

  • STUDENTS AND PARENTS need to know the name of their Dance Number(s) and which part of shows student is in (LOWER OR UPPER School OR Both). Students should not wear regular underwear  under costumes and all visible tags should be removed.

  • CLASS UNIFORMS OR COSTUMES are to be worn for rehearsals as listed and hair in a bun.  Backstage assignments have been made to help with the program run smoothly.

  • SHOW ORDER is listed above and it will be posted in many locations.

  • QUESTIONS should be asked now so the director, teachers and backstage help are not bombarded during recital.

  • VIDEO, PHOTOGRAPHY OR RECORDING DEVICES are NOT allowed due to distraction and consideration of fellow audience patrons. The safety of all performers can also be compromised.  NO photography in allowed backstage!!!

  • ARRIVE EARLY DANCERS to all calls and you are required to sign-in and out at the backstage door. (Music school entrance) when you arrive or exit.  Dancers will not be released without a parent picking them up for safety purposes after a rehearsal or performance.
    Parents and audience patrons use the front door of the school.  If wheel chair assistance is needed please come in the front door and ask for help.
    REHEARSALS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AND PARENTS!

  • LABEL ALL BELONGINGS with a permanent pen on labels and inside shoes.  Dance Basics students, it really helps if you come dressed and put extra belongings in a basket (dance bag), with your name on it.  This way we can keep all your belongings together.

  • DO NOT BRING valuables, jewelry and money to the theater. SASPA is not responsible for any lost belongings.
    PROPERTY NOT labeled is almost impossible to figure out who the owner is.

  • MISSED REHEARSALS by any students risk ruining the number and more importantly risk physical danger due to not knowing where to go in the dark and what is or isn’t dangerous on or off stage.  This also affects the performance of others in the number.  Teams DO NOT PRACTICE in pieces or as singles.

  • LAYER YOUR TIGHTS accordingly.  Plan your individual show accordingly.  Especially if you are in several numbers.

  • BALLET STUDENTS may have to purchase tan knee-high hose to wear over pink tights (for jazz) or full tan tights for jazz and tap depending on costuming requirements.  Plan ahead.

DANCE BASICS AGES 3/4 and 5/6 (Required)
All DB students should wear cover-ups to and from the studio over their costume.  This is both to protect their costume and not to have them outside in a costume.  In the business we call this a smock.  In addition, they should have black elastic sewn through tap shoe eyelets. Ballet slippers should be tied in a square knot and trimmed approximately one inch and then tucked into the front of shoes.  Under wear and panties should not be worn as they will show when costume is on.  DB students should be picked up during intermission approximately 45 minutes into the show.  (Show times listed above)

ACPAA PRODUCTIONS (Not required)DVDs of the performance can be ordered. Price is $30.00.   Order forms can be picked up at SASPA or at the performance. Cash or checks should only be made out to ACPAA Inc.

PHOTO SESSIONS AND PACKET PRICES  (Not required) Photographer Chris Osiecki. ACPAA Inc. Student must sign up at SASPA for session time Sunday June 9th 2019 Suncay June 9, 2019 between 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. Order forms are available at SASPA.

RECITAL CHECKLIST: MAKE-UP, HAIR AND SHOE REQUIREMENTS
Make-up includes base, earth tone eye make-up (no blues or greens), red lipstick, and blush. Hair should be in a bun at the crown of the head and secured with bobby pins and a fine hair net. No bangs, no scrunchies, and no clips as they reflect the light. Use hair colored bobby pins. Shoes and tights are specified by the above Performer Needs (Blue Table).

HAIR FOR ALL is required in a bun and sometimes as requested by the teacher for other numbers.

ALL PERFORMERS No underwear under tights. Students who require costume changes should purchase a flesh colored camisole leotard.  Bra straps showing across the back of leotards and costumes is unacceptable.
