There will be a table to drop off your donation. We also need volunteers to help with table at intermission. If you are interested please let us know.
We are sold out. When choosing your seats do your best to not leave an abundance of single seats. The theater staff will make you scoot towards the middle to keep any single seats on the aisle so sit accordingly.Masks are very much appreciated in the theater. It will be crowded and cases are rising again. Dancers do not need masks but are welcomed to wear them back stage.
All dancers are to remain back stage during the whole show. We open the bake sale to the dancers before intermission. So, if they would like to buy something, send them with money. We will help them.
All the dancers will be brought onto the stage at the end of the show for a final bow. You will grab your kiddo from the stage at that point.
Thanks So Much!
Each spring we host our student recital. Traditionally held on the stage at Freedom Hall in Park Forest, this year is going to be a bit different due to COVID-19. We will be working towards our performance throughout the year. However, we are not sure where it will be held at the present time. We are leaning towards Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve or another comparable outdoor venue as we did over the summer. Once we are allowed to perform in theaters again we will reassess our situation.
