Recital T-Shirts may be purchased at the studio if ordered by Wednesday, May 18th. A limited number of shirts will be available at the rehearsal (and recital if any are left). Don’t miss out, order your recital t-shirt today. A sample is available at the studio.
The recital will be professionally recorded by Velveteen Videos. They can be ordered at the studio, dress rehearsal or during the recital. An Order Form is available for download and payment is required at the time of the order.
Please keep in mind that no cameras of any type may be used in the auditorium during the recital. This includes still cameras, video cameras, phones w/cameras, iPads, tablets, etc). The use of these items is distracting and potentially obstructs the view of those sitting behind and around you.
You may use any type of camera during dress rehearsal.
Greenwood Photography will be available during the rehearsals for professional portraits. They also will be taking group photos of each class. We would like everyone to participate in the group photos, but the individual portraits are optional. The group photos will be available for purchase after the recital. While you are welcome to watch please keep in mind that you may not take pictures during the photo session.
Spotlight Dance Company members will be having their group photos taken on Tuesday, May 31st at the studio. If you are not in company and would like to have a professional portrait taken before the rehearsals you are welcome to come by.
Rehearsal for our 45th Annual Recital – Fabulous!
Rehearsals will be held on June 2nd and 3rd at Metz Middle School in the City of Manassas. Rehearsals start at 5PM on both days and will be following the order of the dances on Recital day. Please be on time because we will not be able to repeat numbers. More details on the rehearsals can be found in the Recital Listings (see below for the correct version).
Students who take classes on Monday & Friday have their rehearsal on June 2nd from 5-9PM and will have their recital on Saturday June 4th at Noon. For more information refer to the 12 Noon Recital Listing.
Students who take classes on Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturday have their rehearsal on June 3rd from 5-9PM and will have their recital on Saturday June 4th at 5PM. For more information refer to the 5PM Recital Listing.
A copy of the recital listing was sent home with your child earlier this month. If you have any questions please refer to the recital listing or call or email the studio.
Tickets for our 44th annual dance recital S is for Spotlight are now available for advance purchase for $10 each at the studio through Saturday, June 13th at Noon. They also will be available for purchase during dress rehearsal on Monday, June 15th and Tuesday, June 16th for $10 each. The studio will be closed for the remainder of that week and the next opportunity to purchase will be the day of the recital at a cost of $15 each. Advance tickets may be purchased using cash or check (checks are limited to current dance families only). Tickets purchased the day of the recital or during dress rehearsal are limited to cash only. All ticket sales are final.
Our 2015 Dance Recital Commemorative T-Shirts are available for purchase as the studio for $20 each. We went with a different vendor this year and have what I believe to be a better quality t-shirt and a great design.
Recital Information – June 20th, 2015 at Patriot High School
Our 44th Annual Dance Recital, S Is For Spotlight will be held on Saturday, June 20th, 2015 at Patriot High School in Nokesville. The move to Patriot is unexpected, but we had very few choices as Metz Middle School cancelled on us in late December. Patriot is a newer and more roomy facility and I think everyone will like it. Students will be sent home with the Recital Information form for parents to complete and return.

Your order form must be turned in and paid for in advance at the studio. The flowers will be available for pickup the day of the recital in the front lobby of Metz Middle School.
Costume balances are being handed out to all dancers this week. Full payment is due in late April. Each family will only get one invoice as they were done by family and not by individual dancer.

The recital fee still includes a recital t-shirt and (2) tickets for each show your child(ren) are in. Examples:
- (1) child in Saturday morning show. You will receive (2) tickets for the Saturday morning show.
