Here you will find the first important letter about the big show! This year our performance is on SATURDAY June 8 at the Philharmonie in Haarlem at 1 p.m. Students are expected well in advance. The probable end is 16 hours. This letter with all data and additional information is to give you a little more insight into the organization of a show.
First of all: without the help of many, many parents we cannot make a show. We seek help with the following:
-Supervision of the children’s groups (1 assistant mother group, 2 for the toddlers)
-4 parents m / f for overall guidance
-10 mothers for hair / make-up
-Many sponsors who, for example, make the program booklet possible!
Help parents are necessary! It’s nice to have familiar faces behind the scenes. Not just for us as teachers, because we know which parent belongs to which child and group. It is also nice for the children of the group to know that “the mum or dad of” helps. It takes some of the tension away from the children. Help parents help with dressing children, help with make-up and ensure that children are ready on time, when the group is met, and that all children have gone to the toilet. Auxiliary parents have 1 meeting in advance: during the large walk-through on 19 & 26 May we make time available for explanations and questions. You can also always contact the teacher. As a thank you you will receive a free ticket for a family member. You yourself remain the whole show behind the scenes and look from the backdrop. If that is not first rank!
Do you want to help us make the program booklet financially possible? That would be nice; we are happy to offer it to the public free of charge. If you place an advertisement for 69, – you will receive 2 free tickets as a thank you!
Participation contribution (10 per person and not per lesson) must be submitted to your teacher between 1 and 22 April. Preferably in a closed envelope with your name, class day and time on it. This contribution is to help with the purchase of makeup and washing, repairing, supplementing and updating costumes.
EXtra rehearsal for students: In order to have a common thread running through the performance, the performance consists of various blocks with an overarching theme. These blocks are performed by several groups of children who all have lessons at a different time.
Sunday 19 & 26 May are the big generales from 10-12.30 on which we expect all students, except the toddlers. This is the day that the children can get used to the audience (peers), see the show and the teachers experience the show completely in succession for the first time.
Ticket sales: Saturday April 13 from 10 am to 12 am. After this the tickets can be reserved by e-mail. Tickets are € 19.50 each. Only on sale in the studio on April 13, you will receive the 6th ticket for free. The reason for the precious cards is the walletless break; drinks are ready for you. Unfortunately, we cannot live up to this obligation of the theater. So make sure you use the free wardrobe and the drink during the break. You paid for it.
These are all organizational activities that are involved in a performance. The main goal is to let the students and the public experience an unforgettable afternoon and to enjoy the dance pleasure that we would like to share with everyone. Lots of fun!
