Recital Tickets

May 3, 10:00am

Tickets go on sale on Monday, May 3 at 10:00am EST. Tickets are $12.

To allow for social distancing, there are no reserved seats. All tickets are general admission. While we aren't limiting the number of tickets per family, we do ask that you try to limit your tickets to 10 per family. Or purchase 10 tickets now and more closer to the show, after everyone has had a chance to purchase their block of tickets. This will allow us to have room to social distance throughout the venue. Tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Children ages 3 and under are free as “lap children”, however, if they require a seat, they will need a ticket. Dancers do not require a ticket.

Tickets will also be sold at the door for $15.

Students need to be there at the beginning of their block of time.  We will not wait for students who are running late.  Please understand that to get through all our dances in an orderly and timely fashion, we need to keep the day moving.  Each class will have approximately 5-10 minutes to rehearse followed by their picture.

Please listen for announcements in case we run out of order.  We have also been known to run early.

We will end dress rehearsal with our ballet, Coppelia. If you are a part of the ballet, please arrive fully dressed and ready no later than 3:00pm. Please check in when you arrive. Please note: For the actual show, Coppelia is first!

Students will enter at Studio 3 and start with their rehearsal. Please wait in your car until you see a staff member hold up a sign for your class. Parents are asked to wait outside. After rehearsal, dancers will walk to Studio 1 to have their picture taken. Ziplocks will be available for masks when removed for pictures. Once finished, dancers will exit through Studio 1 and meet their parents in the parking lot. If you don't think that your dancer will recognize your car, please have a sign with his/her name so that we can get your dancer back to you safe and efficiently.

If students have a second dance, they can enter the lobby and use Studio 2 to change their costumes. If entering the lobby, masks are required for both parents and dancers.

recital

Students not in the ballet but dancing before intermission, are to be dropped off at 1:45 and picked up during intermission. This staggered check-in will help us social distance. Please do not pick up during any other times due to the distraction to the audience.

There will be a short break at the conclusion of Coppelia to clean and sanitize the stage.

recital_lineup

Students dancing after intermission are to be dropped off at intermission and picked up at the completion of the show. We will also clean and sanitize the stage during intermission.

Each child will have a badge with their picture, name, and dances. They will receive their badge when they check in and return their badge when they are finished performing.  If your child is watching the second half of the show, but participating in finale, they should keep their badge and return it after finale.

Due to COVID, parents are permitted to change their dancers this year. If you plan to change your dancer, please email us at dance@carlisledance.com. If we do not hear from you, we will assume our faculty & staff will assist your dancer.

Dancers should arrive dressed in their first costume according to the schedule. Hair and makeup should be completed prior to arriving.

Dancers who participated in Coppelia should remain backstage after the completion of our "mini ballet". Please do not pick up dancers at the end of the show UNLESS they are done dancing for the day.

Dancers should have costumes and accessories prepared in the order of their dances. Some dancers will have quick changes due to their performance schedule and should be ready.  Staff and faculty will be available to assist with these quick changes.
