Dance Mission’s 2019 Spring Recital

 Date/Times: Saturday, May 18, 2019. Dress Rehearsal 9am-2pm. Return to backstage 4:30pm. Recital 5:00pm. After-Party 7:45pm-8:30pm.

Location: Gillioz Theatre, 325 Park Central E., Springfield, MO 65806. FREE PARKING AT 235 N Benton Ave. parking garage, 428 E St. Louis St lot, 310 N Boonville Ave lot, and 313 N Boonville Ave lot. There’s also a $5 parking garage at 434 E. McDaniel St (See attached map for more info.)

DRESS REHEARSAL: *9:00am-2:00pm* Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the Gillioz Theatre. 9am all families must be seated in the auditorium with dancers dressed in costume and ready for orientation and to practice our show-opener, “Come Alive.” If not able to come fully dressed in costume, ARRIVE EARLIER to be stage-ready by 9am! Hair and makeup can be done at home PRIOR TO arrival. Please bring yourselves and all belongings into the auditorium and have a seat for orientation when we will explain location of dancers’ holding areas, the flow of post-show-opener dancers into their holding areas, and drop-off/pick-up locations for dancers and their belongings. Children need to be seated with their families at all times, not running on stage or around the auditorium.

*Most dancers will not need to be present the whole time and may leave right after their class’ final dances are practiced on stage. (See attached show order.) Our dancers in the 1st half, routines 2-25, should be finished and able to go home by 12:00pm or sooner. Our dancers in the 2nd half, routines 26-39, can leave rehearsals after 9am orientation and show opener practice is finished (around 9:45am hopefully), and then at 11:45am they will need to return to the theatre to rehearse their 2nd  half routines. Some of our dancers are in several routines in BOTH the 1st and 2nd halves of the show, so for those dancers who will be there 9am-2pm, please bring non-messy snacks (i.e. crackers, fruit snacks, etc) and water only to avoid staining costumes. Also, please bring activities like books, tablets, coloring books, etc to help keep kids entertained while they wait for their time to perform.

Classes will have designated waiting areas so they may be easily retrieved by Dance Mission staff when needed for their times on stage, so please do not take them into audience; they may miss their stage-time. Staff will NOT retrieve dancers from audience. After the performers are finished, parents will meet them in the “Gallery” upstairs to take them home or to the audience to watch the rest of the show.

New this year, parent-volunteers will supervise and assist small groups of students, so some parents can remain seated during the entire show. For more info on volunteering for your child’s class, please speak to a Dance Mission instructor.

Dancers’ Attire for Dress Rehearsal AND Recital:

2. Tights/Undergarments— Nude/Tan colored FOOTED or CONVERTIBLE tights required for everyone, except optional for hip hop classes and boys.  Nude cami-leotards worn under costumes are optional and recommended to help our dancers feel more covered and comfortable and to aid in costume quick-changes for some of our busiest dancers.

Berry/mauve lipstick works well with all skin tones.
