Spring Gala 2018 Information         

When: Friday May 18th at 7:00pm, Dancers arrive 6:00-6:15pm to enter theater to be organized by class in the student section.  Doors open to audience/family at 6:30pm. (Dress/Tech Rehearsal is Thursday May 17th times vary- see below.)

Where: Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Tickets are for sale through the BCT box office website bctboxoffice.org. Tickets are $10.00, ages 5 and under are free but need to purchase a “free” ticket to have their own seat. Your dancer does NOT need a ticket!

Student Section: your dancer will be seated in our student section organized by class. Our tinniest dancers are welcome to sit with family after they perform or after intermission. Students only must enter the theater at 6:00-6:15pm to be organized in the student section.

Dressing rooms: If your dancer requires a costume change, they will be allowed to use the downstairs dressing room. There will be a helper in the dressing room to assist your dancer if needed. Dancers are welcome to locate the downstairs dressing room in advance during dress rehearsal.

Video/Pictures: The show will be professionally videoed. DVD’s will be for sale through our website a few weeks after the show for $10.00 ea., to be picked up at the studio. Audience members may video with a small device from their seats only, as long as they are not blocking the view of others or our videographer. Please no flash photography.

Costume Loan: MotionArts owns all costumes and accessories. We do this to help keep the cost low for all dancers and to be responsible consumers! Costumes will be distributed the last week of classes, some pieces maybe distributed at the theater. Dancers will need to wear their own leotard, tights, and shoes- your teacher will update you on those needs. Costumes must be returned at the end of the show to return bins located near the exits of the theater. A $15.00 performance fee helps cover the rental cost of costumes and the theater rental. This fee can be paid at our website via the link on the main page, or at the studio.

Dress/Tech Rehearsal: takes place Thursday May 17th at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Each class is allotted a strict 15 minute time slot on stage. Students should arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled time and are free to leave at the end of their 15 minute slot. Students may wear their costumes if able. Parents are welcome to sit and wait with their dancer in the auditorium during dress rehearsal. Students must remain seated and wait quietly during rehearsal until their class is called up.
