Artsfest 2017 on Walnut Street

When: Sunday, May 7, 2017

Time: Arrive at 3:15 pm in grassy area behind stage. Perform at 3:45-4:45pm.

Where: Delong Plumbing Dance Stage, 900 E. Walnut St. (near Walnut St. & John Q Hammons Pkwy) Springfield, MO 65806

Dancer’s Attire: 1. Recital costume (Dancers who have more than one class costume will need to wear a black leotard under their costumes so they can make a quick change from one costume into another in between dance routines in the grassy area off stage.) 2. Tights--Combo classes need footed (covers feet) white or light pink tights; Intermediate Ballet & Lyrical classes need footed (covers feet) nude tights; Dancenastics and Hip Hop classes require no tights. 3. Dance shoes--Combo classes need just tap shoes (at Artsfest, there’s only enough time for the Combo kids’ tap routines, unlike the recital later on May 20 in which they’ll perform both tap and ballet); Dancenastics classes need bare feet; Intermediate Ballet and Lyrical classes need peach/pink/nude ballet slippers or half-shoes; Hip Hop classes need mostly black jazz shoes/sneakers.

Hair/Accessories: Combo classes need high ponytail with costume headpiece over LEFT ear; Dancenastics classes need low side ponytail below LEFT ear with costume headband on or headpiece over LEFT ear; Intermediate Ballet and Lyrical classes need a low bun under the LEFT ear with Ballet costume headband or Lyrical costume headpiece above LEFT ear. Hip Hop classes--“Hair Up” needs high side ponytail over LEFT ear with hair extension in it, gloves, and tube socks.; “Burn It Up” needs low side ponytail under LEFT ear; “Undefeated” needs one low messy bun under the LEFT ear and costume headband. Makeup is not necessary for Artsfest.

This outdoor festival is a great community event to showcase Dance Mission's dancers two weeks before our recital! We'll wear the same costumes as recital to this optional performance with no extra fees for performers. All performers and children age 5 and under receive free entry! Family members can enter the festival for $5 at the gate or purchase $3 entry tickets in advance at Springfield McDonald's, available April 20. Many other dance studios, artists, and vendors get together on this weekend each year to celebrate the amazing arts here in Springfield, MO! Please let me know if you have any questions or conflicts with performing at Artsfest! I look forward to showing the community the brilliant dancers we have at Dance Mission!
