Dress Rehearsal dates are: Tuesday, June 6th and Wednesday, June 7th 2023 also at Leominster High School. There will be one show on Friday and two shows on Saturday. Most students will be in two or more shows, with the exception of the Creative Movement ages 2.5 – 3yrs (Monday 4:00pm., Saturday 10:00am and Saturday 12:00pm), Thursday 4:00pm Hip Hop/Tap ages 4-6yrs, Friday 4:00pm Ballet/Jazz ages 4-6yrs and Saturday 11:00am Trio class ages 4-6yrs will be in One show on Saturday. If a student is in two combo classes per week, they may be in two separate shows. More information will be given out at a later date.

    Recital costumes have been ordered and the balance for costumes will be invoiced in February. Costumes prices have increased tremendously and will range between $68.00 – $92.00 depending on the costume that was chosen. If a student would like to withdraw from a class, you will still be responsible for the balance of the recital costume, as they cannot be cancelled. Class withdrawal must be done before the NEW month begins. You can call or send an email. If you do not withdraw before the new month, you will be responsible for that month’s tuition and the balance of the costume/costumes.

    Just a reminder that students that are participating in our annual end of the year recital will be required to pay a mandatory Recital Fee in the amount of $40.00 per student and a discounted rate of $50.00 for families who have more than one student dancing in the recital. The recital fee will include an edited video download link for ALL THREE SHOWS, free admission for the dancer to sit in the audience and enjoy the show and one appreciation medal per student. If the dancer is 3yrs and under they must sit on the lap of a parent/guardian. Miss Tanya’s School of Dance is one of the only studios in the area that allow students to sit with their families in the auditorium to watch the show, instead of remaining backstage or in a cafeteria. The fee is due on or before January 28th 2023 and is Cash or Check only.

    The video company that we have hired to professionally video all three shows is Media Creations. They will also offer additional items once the initial media package is purchased through the recital fee, such as a DVD’s, Blu-rays, USB’s and individual routines at discounted prices that will be on their order form, which will be in the recital packet emailed in May. No one will be allowed to record the recital and no flash photography will be allowed. Each show will have staff members that will be monitoring the audience and we kindly ask that you abide by this rule.

Photos by Jenn will be our official photographer for the recital. She will be at both Dress rehearsals for individual photos. More information will be given out in the recital packet.

    Instructors will begin to teach recital routines in the month of February. Class attendance is very important. New steps, formation changes, etc. will be added each week. Please make sure to be present and on time for every class. Students may not miss more than 4 classes from February to the recital date in June in order to be eligible to perform in the recital.

    Instructors will be videotaping the entire class for educational purposes ONLY when teaching recital routines. Videos are used as a teaching tool for students to see correct formations, choreography and musicality. Recital videos will NEVER be posted on social media, so we ask that students and parents do not post any videos on social media.
