Candyland - Recital 2018

May 19th & 20th

We are very excited about our 2nd Annual Recital and think it’s a great opportunity for your child to show off what they have been working on throughout the year. Not only will you see your child perform, but also see all the different classes and enjoy everything Power in Motion has to offer. There will be five shows to accommodate seating for students, parents, friends and families. Your child will be assigned a day and time. Unfortunately, these days and times are not flexible as classes will be practicing their own routine on their practice day/time. Classes might combine if there is not enough participation, but practices will still happen during your child’s regular gymnastics or dance classes. If your child takes more than one class, you are welcome to do both classes, or you may just choose one. We look forward to having One Sweet Show!

This year we will be getting each child a recital t-shirt to wear during the recital. You will designate your size on the last sheet of this packet. For gymnasts please have your child come in a leotard or tank top, and shorts or leggings and they will be given their recital t-shirt upon arrival to wear for the show. Boys may wear a t-shirt and shorts and can switch into their recital t-shirt once they arrive. Dancers will receive a recital t-shirt however, will most likely not wear it for the shows. The dance instructors will give specific instruction on your dancer’s costume at a later date.



We will be having ALL students who are participating come in through the PRESCHOOL double doors (usually not open). Please take any belongings with you and we will have cubbies available for them to put their extra clothes/shoes in. Different this year, all students will remain in the preschool gym areas for the entire show. The shows are going to be under two hours, so please have respect for all performers and if possible stay and enjoy the entire show. They will all come out at the end to watch the final performance and will be released to you after that. Preschool parents- we ask that you go to the area where your child is to pick them up.



Please make every effort to have good attendance during the recital preparation. Learning the routines and practicing with all participants is a huge factor in the groups overall performance. Missing many classes not only hurts your child, but every child participating in the class. If a problem with your students class arises, please let the front desk know as soon as possible. If you need to switch classes during the practice of the routines, please be aware that the routine may be different than the one your child learned. Please try your best to keep them in the same class once routines are learned to keep them comfortable with their environment.



During the month of May make-ups will NOT be offered. If your child ages up and/or moves up during the month of May, we will wait to move them up AFTER the recital. This is so they can stay consistent for their class and will not get a different routine in the last couple of weeks prior to the recital day.

There also will be time at the end of each recital to get a single picture of your child by the photographer for purchase. Payment is due when your child gets their picture taken. (Cash or Check ONLY) The photo release agreement is just in case we do use a picture of your child for advertisement/social media.



Part 8: Commitment Form and Payment

That fee includes your two tickets and a t-shirt for each child participating in the recital.

Commitment Form and Payment need to be turned in by March 19th, 2018.
