Every year we have our annual Curtain Call Recital in the Spring and we have added a small Holiday Show for the younger dancers in December. These shows are optional, however most of our dancers participate. This is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to showcase to both family and friends what they have accomplished throughout their experience in our program. Parents will receive more information regarding the Holiday show during October and information regarding the Spring recitals during November.
Plan on coming to watch our Annual Holiday Pageant Central Middle School Auditorium on Saturday December 9th @ 4:00 pm. Our Holiday Pageant is a fun, low key performance for our younger dancers from our "Tiny Tots" up through our grade 4-6 dancers. Our families and dancers look forward to this fun and festive event.
This year we will be selling a limited number of reserved seats on the main floor at a cost of $10 per ticket. All other tickets will cost $5 for general admission seating. With the purchase of a $10 Reserved Seat, you are donating $5 to the 4SDC Angel Fund which assists families with dance expenses when in need.
2017 Holiday Pageant Information
Mark your calendars! Our 6th Annual Holiday Pageant will be held Saturday, December 9th at 4:00 pm at Central Middle School Auditorium in White Bear Lake. This show is a more informal and shorter show than our big Curtain Call recital in June but is a very fun and festive show! Reserved main floor tickets are $10 each ($5 goes to the 4SDC Angel Fund) or $5 each for general admission tickets. The wristbands/tickets are available for purchase at the front desk. Wristbands (no reserved seats) will also be available for purchase at the door the evening of the show.
The dancers should be dropped off at Door “E” in the front of the auditorium at 3:30. (Look for the giant snowman! This is the same door where volunteers check in at recital time). We will have staff members meet dancers at that door to escort them to their dressing area. They should already have on their first costume and have hair and makeup done. You will not be able to go to the dressing areas as there is not enough space. The adult that drops them off will take the dancers jacket and street shoes/boots to their seat with them. You will then pick your dancer up at the end of the program from the stage. DANCERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE BEFORE THE END OF THE SHOW – NO EXCEPTIONS. This program only lasts between 30-40 minutes and it is too disruptive and not safe to have parents back stage picking up their dancer throughout the show. (exception: Tiny Tots – they do not have a dressing area and will need to be picked up immediately after their performance. They will be the first numbers on stage.
