2022 Spring Concert Cast Information
Every spring, Hyde Park School of Dance invites family and friends to come see what their favorite dancers have been up to in the studio in a presentation of pieces performed by each class from Creative Movement up to our very highest levels. This is the Spring Concert, and if you have a dancer enrolled in classes for the current Winter/Spring Session, they are encouraged to participate!
Dancers learn their choreography for the Spring Concert in their regularly scheduled classes. There are no outside rehearsals (except for one dress rehearsal on Saturday, May 14th for dancers in Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, and Modern/African/Tap Dance ages 5-7 yrs.), no costume rental fees, and no participation fees associated with this performance opportunity. If you would like to have your dancer take part in the Spring Concert this year, all you need to do is follow these easy steps!
Step 1: RSVP
Costumes, choreography, volunteer recruitment and other important Spring Concert preparations depend on an early and accurate roster of dancers who intend to participate. To sign up or send regrets, please use this simple sign-up form. If you have questions before signing up, or need to change your RSVP, please call the office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Read the Info Packet
Please read the Spring Concert Info Packet in full!
Literally hundreds of dancers attend HPSD, and a significant majority of these students participate in the Spring Concert each year. With so many people working together to present this beloved annual tradition, it is crucial that we are all on the same page. The info packet contains essential information on where to be and when, what to wear, hair and make-up, what's expected of each dancer, and more. This information is not covered in rehearsals or anywhere else, so please take the time to read the packet while your dancer decides whether they will participate.
If there is anything in the Spring Concert Info Packet that you do not understand, please let us know; we are happy to help!
Step 3: Don't Forget Dress Rehearsal
Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, & Modern/African/Tap (ages 5-7 yrs.) Dancers
Dancers in these classes attend a special dress rehearsal on Saturday, May 14th, the day before the Spring Concert. It is imperative that our littlest dancers attend this dress rehearsal so that they know what is expected of them the next day and are set up for success on the big stage! (This dress rehearsal is also the only opportunity for parents and family members to snap a photo of their dancer in costume with your personal camera.)
Dancers in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, African Dance, & Bellydancing Levels 1 & Up
Older dancers will also have dress rehearsals in their regularly scheduled classes in the two weeks leading up to the Spring Concert (May 2-13). During this time, dancers will be measured and begin wearing their costumes while rehearsing, and our costuming staff will make critical adjustments to ensure everything fits properly. It is always important to take the commitment of a dance class seriously, but during the two weeks leading up to the Spring Concert, attendance should be an especially high priority. If your dancer does need to miss class during the two weeks of in-class dress rehearsal, please be sure to email email@example.com as soon as possible. These notifications will be passed along to our costuming department, who will let you know if any special accommodations must be made to ensure your dancer has a costume that fits for the show.
As with the younger dancers, dress rehearsal is your only opportunity to take up-close, individual, posed photos of your dancers in their Spring Concert costumes. Parents of dancers in levels 1 and up will be allowed to take photos of dancers (don't forget to bring your camera!) during the last few minutes of class during dress rehearsal weeks.
Step 4: Reserve Your Tickets
Tickets for the Spring Concert are available for sale exclusively in the HPSD office. Stop by during open hours - 2 pm - 7 pm weekdays, and 8:30 am - 2:30 pm on Saturdays - to pick yours up before the performance.
Complementary tickets are available for children aged 4 or under, HPSD dancers watching siblings perform in acts they themselves are not performing in, and volunteers (1 per volunteer). There is also special pricing for students and seniors.
Each of the three "acts" run like separate performances and has its own tickets. So for example, if you have a student participating in only Act 1, you can see your dancer perform in a full show without having to stay and watch Acts 2 and 3. If you have dancer(s) performing in Acts 1, 2, and 3, and you would like to watch all of them, you will still need separate tickets to each of the three acts (so that we can ensure adequate seating availability the auditorium), but your tickets for Acts 2 and 3 will be complimentary. Because of this complex schema, our administrative staff is happy to help you with your ticket order form in the office.
If you understand our Spring Concert ticketing system without additional assistance, you are welcome to complete the ticket order form and to bring it into the office to pick up your tickets!
