Know when you’re dancing!

  • You should already have all 4 dates blocked off on your calendars.
  • If you are in one class, you will only be needed at on rehearsal night and one recital night.
  • If you are in more than one class, you may be needed all 4 nights or you may get lucky and only need to be there 2 nights. 
  • We will announce lineups sometime in March.
  • We cannot take requests. Remember, there are 300+ dancers all in different situations and we can’t take all of them into account.
  • The lineups are based on a number of factors. Convenience of schedule unfortunately cannot be one of them. We have to prioritize putting on well run weekend.

    Samuel Johnson Jr. Performing Arts Center

    Capuchino High School – San Bruno, CA

    Our recital will be held at the Samuel Johnson Jr. PAC which is located at Capuchino High School in San Bruno. Both rehearsal and recital will take place at this venue. The theatre holds an audience of over 900 people, which provides a great atmosphere for our dancers when it is full. 

    For additional info, including maps and parking, please scroll down this page. 

    INDIVIDUAL CLASS COSTUME SPEC SHEETS

    • Reference the Concrete Jungle – Recital Footwear Outline to check on which shoes your dancer needs for the show. Its best to start wearing these to class asap. In most cases the shoe matches the dress code. 
    • You will get a class spec sheet at the top of May with details on makeup, hair and accessories, and music edit if applicable. It will include everything you will need for the day of the recital.
    • Please remember that any footwear required is purchased separately by each family.

    If you have not received your class costume spec sheet by the date listed above, please contact us immediately. 

    ALL EMAILS SENT REGARDING RECITALS/REHEARSAL

    If you are not receiving the emails listed above, please check in with our office so we can make sure we have the correct email on file. 

    GET READY CHECK LIST / REMINDERS

    • Organize and prep costumes that have come home.
    • Label tags with your dancers name. Not just the garment bag but the tags inside the clothing items. With many dancers matching and changing in one space it can be easy to confuse items.
    • Write names/initials INSIDE of shoes, NOT on the bottom. Audience will see bottom of your shoe.

    BACKSTAGE PARENT VOLUNTEERS

    Part of the reason our recitals run like well-oiled machines is due to our amazing parent volunteers. Each recital our staff will hand pick one or two parents from each class to assist backstage.

    Should you be selected and you agree to help, your list of duties may include the following:

    • Parent Volunteers will of course be able to watch their dancers perform.
    • Work in coordination with our staff to get kids to restroom, stage, etc.
    • Assist with costumes, hair, and make up
    • Keep kids safe and supervised
    • Manage your area of the dressing room
    • Help kids keep costumes clean (no unapproved snacks or drinks)
    • Play quiet games, color, or watch movie with dancers to pass time
    • Recitals will last roughly 90-120 minutes
    • Volunteers must be available on both recital/rehearsal nights

    Volunteers will be contacted by our staff via email with specific instructions as we get closer to the recital dates. If you have been chosen as a volunteer and feel like you may have missed any emails, please contact us ASAP.
