Spring Concert Information

Show is at 2PM, Rehearsal at 12PM

Important Details For Year End Show

Our spring concert is this Saturday May 2nd at the Keyano Recital Theatre. Please have your dancer there at 11:45AM, for a mandatory rehearsal, NOT IN COSTUME, in the appropriate dressing rooms backstage. Make sure your child eats lunch before they arrive so they are not hungry at 1pm when they have their costume on. Please, no food after costumes go on, only water. We will have a light snack for them after rehearsal and before they put on their costumes. Kachinata, Sonechko and Zirka, will meet in room AC 130. There will be signs placed in the hallways to help you get to your designated dressing room. This room is large and lacks privacy so it is important to dress appropriately, white shirts and shorts for boys under their costume. For girls, a skin toned body suite works quite nicely. Lastivka, Veselka and Kalyna can use the small change rooms directly behind the stage entrance. Please have your dancers hair in a French braid and stage make up. Please wear beige tights, not white. Boys, please have your stage make-up as well, black socks, and your hair off your face.

After we gather in the appropriate dressing rooms we will start a rehearsal at 12 NOON SHARP. You do not need to be in costume for this. It is very important that you be on time. All children are sitting in the first two rows of the theatre and need to know what seat they are in and how and when they are getting on stage from their seat. After they rehearse, they will be taken back to their dressing rooms. At that time, you can get them a snack and then into their costumes and ready for the show.

At the entrance table we will be collecting $30 for all DVD Pre-Orders. It is not too late to order this precious keepsake. Epic Productions will be putting together footage on it from Malanka and the Spring Concert. Please talk to us at the table if you are interested. Come prepared with cheque or cash. We will also have a table set up, in the lobby, with Ukrainian merchandise for sale. This table will be CASH only. Be sure to check it out! We will be selling these items before the show, during intermission and after the show.

At 2PM the show will begin. All dancers must sit in their assigned seat during the show. They can hang out with you during intermission, but must go back to their seat after it is over. At the end of the show they will be called up on stage to receive their plaque. If you have not given us their plaque they will receive a 2014-2015 date tag. All new dancers will receive a plaque. The show will be over at approximately 3PM. Immediately after the show, Greg Halinda, will be taking a total group picture on stage, which will be available for purchase. You will be able to order a copy from him. We ask that all family and guests refrain from snapping photos till after he is finished. Please let Greg know if you would like a copy of the photo for $20.

After the photo is over, you will head back to your dressing room and return your costume. There will be a table set up in your dressing area to do this. Please go to the appropriate table for your group. If your costume is returned in the condition you signed it out, you will receive back your costume cheque. If you have fulfilled your volunteer commitment, we will also be returning your $200 volunteer cheque at this time.

We are having a small Social, after costume return, in Room AC 130. If you will be attending please bring a peanut free snack. Please contact us if you have any questions at vlad.bodnarchuck@gmail.com or lkumla22@hotmail.com.
