Tentative Recital/Showcase Plan
Theme: LOVE And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
As auditoriums are closed and unavailable for rental, in addition to the CDC guidelines limiting the number of people allowed to gather, we will have a different kind of recital this year. Instead of the customary large format, we are planning to hold individual mini recitals in our own Studio J PAC performance venue!
The recitals will be held by one class at a time. (We are not yet sure if a small audience will be allowed...details to follow) Since classes have not been able to meet in person, they will have an opportunity to run through their dance together a few times immediately before their performance. Students will be in full costume, and we will also be taking their recital pictures at this time. Each performance will be captured on video and live streamed. All of the videos will then be edited into one cohesive show and you will also receive a link to download your individual class video too!
RECITAL SHOWCASE SCHEDULE - Please follow the links below to our website to find the date/time of your individual class's performance. **If your student takes more than one class, they will likely be spaced apart or on different days since we will not have a changing facility available. Performers should arrive fully dressed and ready to go! (More info regarding procedures to come.)
Triple Threat Theater Programs - Rehearsal and shows will be held at Studio J PAC June 8th-13th.
We are not sure at this point if an audience will be allowed but the shows will be live streamed and recorded for all families.
101 Dalmatians- Rehearsal June 8th-12th 12:00pm-2:30pm; Saturday, June 13th call time 1:00pm show at 2:00pm
Beauty and the Beast- Rehearsal June 8th-12th 2:45pm-6:15pm; Saturday, June 13th call time 5:00pm show at 6:00pm
Enrollment for summer and fall is currently open! We have revised our summer schedule to follow the new guidelines that are being put into place. There are several ways to participate in dance over the summer….in studio, online through zoom, and with pre-recorded classes. Our in-studio schedule is published and our pre-recorded and online class schedule will be released soon too! Just visit www.studiojdanceok.com to find our schedules and enroll!
As we have said...all plans are tentative and will depend on how the re-opening phases proceed here in OK. Safety is our top concern, but we are hopeful that with some extra precautions and planning we will still be able to celebrate our students and all of their hard work this season with a really special recital performance season! Thank you for standing with us and seeing this through! We believe our students deserve this opportunity to shine, and we all could use the healing and joy which the arts provide!
