Recital Re-imagined for 2021

  • Recital 2021 will be outside under a HUGE tent the weekend of May 21 & 22
  • IMDC is holding 7 shortened shows to accommodate all of our dancers while still social distancing
  • Fees for the recital are listed in your parent portal and cover participation, costume, tights and a minimum number of tickets to the show.  Please comply with due dates.
  • Due to the timing of the recital and the end of classes, we will not have dress rehearsals for any shows.
  • IMDC regular weekly classes continue through May 20th

Excitement continues to build as we press on to our May recitals! Please read carefully and if you have questions, contact the director, Michelle at: inmotiondance@aol.com

COSTUME PICK UP:

We will be holding a “drive thru” costume pick up on 2 Sunday afternoons:
April 11 & 18 both days 1:00-5:00. We would ask that you follow signs in the parking lot directing you to drive up to our front door. IMDC staff will take your name, retrieve your costume and collect any outstanding tuition & recital fees. Please have your dancer try on the costume(s) right away at home. Remember, costume companies make costumes to fit the majority. You may find a slight alteration needed just like when purchasing clothes from any store. If there is a huge problem in the fit of the costume, contact Christina: cbartonimdc@gmail.com right away! There will be written instructions provided in the costume bag that will tell you many specifics about your child’s show!

OPTIONAL STUDIO PORTRAITS:

We will be holding 2 days where our photographer will be set up to take individual dance pictures for any parents who would like this service. A picture package envelope will be sent home with all dancers in their costume bag. All packages are of the individual or sisters only since we are not taking group pictures in classes due to COVID restrictions. Here is a link to our google doc if you would like to sign up for pictures:

Google Sheet Picture Sign-Up

Please note: you need a time slot AND a picture envelope for each costume or “shot” you would like taken. FOR EXAMPLE: if you’re having individuals of 2 dancers and a sister shot as well, you will sign up for 3 time slots. In addition if just one dancer wants pictures in 3 costumes, that would also be 3 time slots. Picture dates are Saturday May 8 and Sunday May 16. Additional picture envelopes are available at IMDC front desk!

RECITAL TICKETS — LIVESTREAM — VIDEO DOWNLOAD:

In order to minimize the size of our audience and the number of dancers “backstage” we are presenting 7 recital shows. Each dancer will be able to have 2 audience members come and see the live performance! The ticket pick up will be: Sunday May 16: 1:00-5:00 or anytime Monday thru Thursday May 17-20 during normal studio hours. All fees for the 2020-21 dance season must be paid in full to receive your tickets.

THERE IS NO COST FOR YOUR 2 COMPLIMENTARY TICKETS! You will be required to give your tickets to attendants as you enter the parking lot so that we can effectively control the limited seating at each recital.

We know that many dancers have more people who would love to attend their performance and show their support of these kids! We also would love a large crowd but that is simply not a prudent choice for this year. In order to allow ANYONE to share in our show, we will provide a LIVESTREAM LINK at a cost of $20.00 for a single device, per show. That way folks at home can enjoy the same great show in real time! When we return from spring break, there will be detailed instructions on how to purchase the livestream link on our recital page on the IMDC web site.

Keep in mind, this is likely the best option for many since due to the nature of needing to control access to “backstage” which is inside IMDC, we will not have bathrooms available to the public during any show. The show is about an hour & ½ so hopefully that is an understandable situation for all!

In addition to the livestream, we will have the option of parents purchasing their recital video as a one-time download instead of a DVD. VIDEO DOWNLOAD OF EACH RECITAL SHOW IS $20.00, PER SHOW, PER PERSON.  ALL VIDEO DOWNLOAD PURCHASES MUST BE MADE BY JUNE 15 & PURCHASERS WILL RECEIVE THEIR VIDEO DOWNLOAD LINKS BY JUNE 25.

IMPORTANT PURCHASER INFORMATION:

* SEPARATE ORDER FORMS SHOULD BE COMPLETED FOR EACH PURCHASER: PARENTS, FAMILY, FRIENDS, EXTENDED FAMILY… ANYONE.

* EACH PARENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COLLECTING PAYMENT FROM THOSE YOU ALLOW TO PURCHASE YOUR DANCER’S LIVESTREAM SHOW. WE WILL CHARGE IMDC PARENT PORTALS FOR THE ORDERS ASSOCIATED WITH THEIR DANCER. THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR DANCERS TO ENSURE ONLY APPROVED VIEWERS RECEIVE THEIR VIRTUAL TICKET TO WATCH RECITAL SHOWS.

* FEEL FREE TO SHARE THE ORDER FORMS BELOW WITH ANYONE YOU’D LIKE. BE SURE TO REMIND THEM TO SEND PAYMENT DIRECTLY TO YOU.

*ALL OWED LIVESTREAM FEES IN YOUR PORTAL MUST BE PAID BY MAY 14.
