2018 F2D Spring Showcase
Recital season is right around the corner! We are so proud of all of the dancers working hard on their dances but there is still SO much to do. In this packet, you will find nearly all of the information you will need for the next two months. The ad sheets and order forms should come back to us when you’ve filled them out. But please put the information sheets somewhere safe – they are important! We understand that there is a lot here to remember but don’t forget you can opt in to text reminders from the studio, and receive notifications on all of these important events by texting @fit2dance to the number 81010.
While your child is backstage at the recital, we obviously will have all of our instructors present, but we really need a parent or guardian volunteer per class to ensure the showcase runs smoothly. Volunteers will stay with the class for which they volunteer backstage, keep their class entertained, help during costume changes and line them up prior to performances. The volunteer parent must stay with their class for the entire show. Volunteers should be prepared to come 45 minutes early to get class lists and table assignments and stay for approximately 30 minutes after the recital ends. Volunteers will NOT need to purchase a ticket but WILL be able to view their child's performance. NO OTHER PARENTS WILL BE ALLOWED BACKSTAGE during the performances.
All volunteers should sign up at SignUpGenius.com. You can either search “Fit to Dance Studio” or simply go to:https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0E4AA4AA29A2FD0-2018. Find your child's class, listed under their show time, and check the box next to "Sign up". Click the big red bottom button that says "Submit and Sign up" to finish filling out the form. Our Elite Teams, Dance Club, and Tumble Club are the only classes performing in more than one show but please be aware of which show you are volunteering for if you choose one of these classes. Thank you for your help!!
For your convenience all ticket sales are available ONLINE for 2018! Please share the link with your family and friends, so that they may purchase tickets too! Tickets for Fit to Dance Studio’s Spring Showcase “When I Grow Up” will be on sale Tuesday, May 1st, 2018 at 9am! Visit the Parents’ Corner page of our website for a direct link to the ticket sale. Tickets can also be purchased at: https://www.tututix.com/fit2dancestudio/The best seats will go within minutes of ticket sale opening so please keep this in mind when the time comes.

If you need to purchase tickets to more than one show, tickets will be offered at discounted rate for a later show or shows. Again, this can all be done online. The discount options will become available after purchasing full price tickets to your first show and can only be used for a later show time.
Monday, May 7th-Thursday, May 10th – Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your regularly scheduled class in full costume with hair done as instructed by your child’s teacher. (Morning and Saturday classes will be specially scheduled for a 4-8 pm time slot. Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior.) If your costume comes with a headpiece or hair accessory, please bring this with you. Your child’s teacher will assist with the placement of the headpieces to ensure uniformity.
A picture order form has been attached to this packet. Please bring this form with you on picture day. Payment can be done in person the day of pictures or online prior to picture day. If you order pictures online before your scheduled picture day, please bring your receipt. More information can be found on the picture order form attached.
Friday June 1st-Thursday June 7th - This is the last week of classes. Please be at class on time so that each class can practice their dances for the last time in the studio. The last 20 minutes of class we will invite the parents into class for a small party and awards ceremony. Your child’s dance teacher will give you a parent card at this time to bring with you to the recital. To pick your child up you MUST PRESENT YOUR PARENT CARD to security to get backstage to get your child. No child will be released to any adult without this card.
Friday June 8th - Dress rehearsal is at Kingsway High School’s Eitel Theatre. Go to the North Side Entrance and the Eitel Theatre is on the left when you walk in. Your child should arrive fully dressed in their costume with his/her hair done. Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your scheduled rehearsal time. Your child will be directed to one of the front rows to sit (Quietly) with their class. 5 minutes prior to your child’s scheduled performance, his/her class will be lead to the side stage by an instructor. We will NOT hold a performance for tardy students. So please be punctual. You can take your child home immediately following the performance. There is no dressing room during the rehearsal so dancers who need to change can do so in the bathrooms across the lobby.
