Once Upon a Time
End of the year Recital 2018
Sunday, May 20th, 2018
Dear Parents, The opportunity to perform in a recital is an exciting, empowering and confidence-building part of the training process. This is where we love to watch our students learn about the rehearsals and teamwork while they enjoy the opportunity to showcase their skills in a professionally run production. Recitals are a wonderful way for students to showcase the results of their hard work and for family and friends to join in the pride of their achievement. We love giving all students the chance to perform for their family and friends in this supportive and fun environment and encourage even our youngest and newest performers to be involved. If there is any reason why your child will not be able to perform at the recital, please let us know so we can make amendments to the class routines involving them.

Here at Ninja Lounge, dress rehearsals are a super important part of preparing for our showcase. This is where we get to see the costumes working on stage in a group to really compliment the routines your children have been working so hard on throughout the semester. It gives us a chance to make any adjustments and ensure that everyone has time to get ready between their acts. Even more importantly, they can overcome some of the jitters that may hit when the bright lights come on and really prepare themselves for the show ahead. It is a fun and rewarding experience and a great chance to play with their friends and watch some inspiring performers as they wait for their turn in the spotlight. Children are asked to bring a healthy lunch and snacks with a bottle of water – all labelled with your child’s full name. Our staff and volunteers will ensure that children are reminded to drink water regularly and eat their lunches at the allocated time. Parents and staff members who are volunteering to help at the showcase will also need to be available for Dress Rehearsal day to ensure they understand their roles and can see how everything will be run on show day.
PRE-SALE TICKETS Tickets for our showcase are ready to purchase online! To ensure our performers get to perform and show off their hard work to a full audience, we have kept ticket prices very reasonable. Adult tickets can be purchased for $15 each, and children’s tickets are $8. We do not charge for children under 3 years old to attend the showcase, unless they will be occupying their own seat. We also ask that you consider our performers and other audience members when bringing young children to watch. If they become loud, distressed or disturb any other audience members, please take them outside. Tickets at the Entrance: $20 each
CLASS ATTENDANCE In regards to attendance, it is very important that students do not miss any of their scheduled classes between now and recital time so they can spend their rehearsal time together to perform their routines, feel confident, and look amazing. If your child is sick for class but well enough to come and watch, this is preferable to missing out altogether. If for any reason your child will miss any of their regular classes, we ask that you contact receptions at 954.284.1823 to let us know in advance. Please note that unfortunately any families with unpaid participation or costume fees will not be allowed to participate in our showcase.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
We are giddy with excitement to show you how hard our students have been working!
