Christmas Show 2022 Information!
Please take a moment to read...
Join us on Saturday, December 10th at Hoover High School's Performing Arts Hall for two different performances at 2:30 pm and 6:30 pm! We are excited to share what we have learned in class so far and celebrate the holiday season. Each year all of our classes and students perform in our annual Christmas show. Performing is a valuable part of the learning process in the performing arts and so rewarding to share with an audience. Invite friends and family to relax and enjoy while we put on a show!
Tickets are general admission and $10 each. You can begin purchasing tickets through the studio office on Wednesday, November 16th. Tickets will also be available at the door. The balcony and main floor of the auditorium will be open for ample seating. Our shows are professionally video recorded to have to keep. You may purchase DVDs of one or both shows; $15 for one show; $28 for both shows. DVDs must be ordered ahead of time, so those orders and money are due Thursday, December 1st. Please remember there is not photography or video allowed during the performances (June dress rehearsals you are permitted to video), so if you would like a recording, please plan to order a DVD. Lastly, we will be selling flowers, treats/snacks, and water at both shows. Stop by the tables to pick up flowers or a treat for you and your dancer while supporting ATTDJC and our spring performance of Mary Poppins including 50 dancers from our studio! New this year, we will be selling Dancer Shout-Outs. More information will be coming in your email with that form. This is a fun way to wish your performer good luck or share an encouraging message while giving your support. Thank you!
Our mandatory Dress Rehearsals will be held the evening before on Friday, December 9th. Dress Rehearsals are at A Time To Dance for our Christmas shows. Shows One dress rehearsal begins at 4:30 pm. Show Two dress rehearsal begins at 6:45 pm. Your performer must attend the dress rehearsal in order to perform in the show. You may leave once you have finished all of your routines for that rehearsal, though we do request that performers stay backstage through the end of the actual performance to take their bow in the finale. Instructors will be backstage and in the changing area monitoring students. Performers should wear their correct attire, shoes, accessories, hair, and makeup to dress rehearsal.
Here is how you should prepare.
Students should wear the outfit described under their class type on our Dress Code Sheet along with the $5 headpiece/accessory specifically for their class. These accessories are passed out in November for you to keep. Please note that some classes, such as Troupe, may be wearing different costumes—instructors will inform both the students and parents if this is the case.
All performers should wear their hair in a tight ballet bun unless otherwise specified by the instructor. Acrobatics classes classes should wear their hair in a ponytail. No jewelry or nail polish should be worn while in costume.
Performers will remain in the cafeteria area during the show with the teachers. Please drop your performer off at 2:00 pm for the first show and 6:00 pm for the second show. All performers will bow together at the end of the performance and then may be picked up in cafeteria/commons area after the show.
