WE ARE FAMILY – 2019 DANCE RECITAL

Welcome to our recital central page! This page will be updated regularly from now until the recitals with all the information you will need. We recommend you bookmark this page to easily come back to this information when you need it.

This year we have 2 separate recitals, with around 300 dancers taking part over the course of the weekend. We would like to take a moment to acknowledge all the hard work your dancer(s), our teachers, staff, and you as families have put in over the past 12 months. The work began last August with selecting a theme. It continued with teachers working technique all of fall. We all picked costumes in December and January, then moved on to fittings. Since then we have been planning the recital, and completing choreography. Putting on a recital is a year long process. There are countless hours put in outside of the classroom. To us, these recitals are the equivalent of our super bowl, and we can’t wait to perform for you.

There will be a lot of information on this page, please read through it carefully, and check back for updates. 

Thank you!

– Jana, Carlos, and the PCPA Team

Please remember that any footwear required is purchased separately by each family. 

If you have any questions regarding the spec sheets or you have not received your class spec sheet, please reach to us immediately. We are happy to get the information to you.

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

  • 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.
