Where are the Performances?
All spacing rehearsals, dress rehearsals and performances are at Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA).
When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday May 15th at the BPA Box Office and on the BPA website. The performances will sell out. These shows are a popular tradition for many Bainbridge Islanders. So invite all your friends, family, teachers, and community members—and tell them to get their tickets in advance!
Does my dancer have to attend all their spacing and dress rehearsals?
Attendance at spacing rehearsals and dress rehearsals is mandatory if your dancer wishes to perform. Please let us know as soon as possible if your dancer is unable to participate.
Do all classes perform?
No. The two Music & Dance I (Ages 3-4) classes will instead have In-Studio Performances at BDC on their last days: Wednesday June 19 and Friday June 21. Aerial classes also do not perform.
Attendance in classes is paramount for the rest of the school year. Regular attendance is important for students to learn their choreography, dance as a group, and feel confident onstage. It is very disruptive to the other dancers if your dancer is absent. BDC policy is that if a dancer misses more than three classes in the spring semester, the instructor can choose to remove them from the dance and they will not perform. Please make it a priority for your dancer to attend all their classes.
What is the fee for costumes?
We charge a fee for the cost of costumes and hairpieces, both of which will be your dancer’s to keep. We try our best to keep costumes simple and fees quite reasonable. A detailed costume fee sheet will be included in your performance packet. Your costume fee will be charged to your account June 1st.
How can I volunteer to help?
There are many ways for parents and family members to volunteer! In April, we need crafty parents to sew costumes and make hairpieces. In June, come paint floors, hang lights, sell concessions, and help backstage with the dancers. We need a team of volunteers to transport our dance floor from the studio to the theater and help roll-up and unroll the floor during each show for the tap classes. After the last show, help us take lights down, transport the dance floor back to BDC, clean backstage and wash costumes. We will have an online sign-up system as well as a sign-up sheet in the lobby in May but feel free to contact me now if you are interested.
Please call (206) 842-1497 or email email@example.com if you have any questions.
