Dear Parents and Students,

I am excited to welcome you to our upcoming performance to conclude the 2019 Spring semester. Just like years past, this performance will be unforgettable for both the performers and their families.

It is Starlight Studios’ philosophy that performing on stage is not only a pivotal learning experience but a rite of passage for performers young and old, a chance to shine in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement. The performing experience helps build self-esteem and self-confidence to be used for many facets of the performer’s life.

The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.

Your dedication is necessary to this performance to make it the best possible. Our staff and myself will be working around the clock, especially in the weeks leading up to this event, to make this performance the best it can be and assure every student is prepared. I have no doubt that you will be just as invested in this beautiful performance and its success as I am.

Please keep this page bookmarked for reference, and check back frequently. It will contain much (if not all) of the information needed to make our 2019 recital the best one yet!

Allison Fuhrer
Owner of Starlight Studios

Where do I buy my tickets?

[/vc_column_text][/ultimate_exp_section][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][ultimate_exp_section title=”Costumes” new_title=”Costumes” icon=”Defaults-user”][vc_column_text]


When will I get my costume?
Costumes will be given out the week before Spring Break. All accounts must be zero to receive costume.

What is included with my costume?
Most costumes will include a hair piece and tights. A complete list of what’s included will be attached to your costume. All costumes come in their own garment bag for safe keeping.

What if my costume doesn’t fit?

No worries! We have a wonderful seamstress that can alter your costume. For big fixes, costumes can be returned to the studio to be altered before Dress Rehearsal. Small alterations can be done during dress rehearsal.

Is there specific hair and makeup requirements? 

Uniform hairstyles are required. Exact hair requirements will be given with costumes. Dancers with short hair must pull their hair away from the face. Though we do recommend some makeup during performance, our students are not required to wear makeup. If makeup is worn, colors should be natural and never overly done besides basic stage applications.

Do I need to wash my costumes? How should I store them?

We recommend that you label all costumes, shoes, accessories, and tights with your child’s name. Place the costumes in a garment bag with your child’s name on the outside. Please do not wash costumes in your washing machine; dry clean them only (after the Recital). If ironing. please use only a steam iron. To store a tutu, put it on a hanger upside down. To help remove persistent wrinkles, hang the tutu in the bathroom during a shower or use a handheld steamer.

Recital 2019 Picture Day will be held on Saturday, April 27th at Starlight Studios

Picture day is an exciting event where our students that are preparing for their upcoming performances get to take professional photos as individuals and as a team in their showtime costumes and gear. Picture day is not mandatory, however we strongly encourage all of our students to attend to make sure every class is represented and no student is left taking a team picture by themselves. There is zero obligation to purchase photos even if you are present for picture day to support your class.

Parents are not allowed in the dressing rooms after the children have been checked in for the performance. Only Starlight Studios staff and parent volunteers will be allowed to go backstage.

Should I pack food for my child backstage?
Only water is allowed backstage during the actual show. We will offer the performers fruit snacks and animal crackers during intermissions. Can I pick up my child early after they have finished their performance? Unless there is an emergency, performers will remain backstage for the entire performance. All performers will be under the supervision of responsible adults and will be safe for the length of the performance. The dressing rooms will be stocked with various activities as well as a movie to watch during the show. After
the finale, performers will be released.

Recital 2019 MANDATORY Dress Rehearsal will be held at Kimball High School on Saturday, May 4th

How do I know what time my rehearsal is?
Each class will have a 10 minute time slot to rehearse their performance piece on stage, in full costume. The more students are prepared during our dress rehearsal, the better we perform at showtime. Find your dress rehearsal time slot below:

Recital 2019 Dress Rehearsal Schedule

What do I wear?
If you have only one costume, come to dress rehearsal in that costume (including tights) with hair and makeup already complete as if it was the day of the show. Girl performers with more than one costume must come wearing tights and nude leotard on with a modest cover up. Hair and makeup should already be done. Boy performers with more than one costume must come wearing dance belt (ages 10 and up), white tank top with a modest cover up. Do NOT wear dance shoes outside. No nail polish or jewelry.

What do I bring?

Proper dance shoes, water, notebook (for older dancers that want to write notes on the spacing and choreography changes), clean snacks if staying longer periods of time, all costumes and accessories, extra hair and makeup supplies, books or cards for down time. Parents can bring a camera and take pictures and video during the dress rehearsal. Do not bring: juice or soda, messy snacks, big groups of people, restless siblings, or valuable items that can get lost or stolen.

Do I need to stay the whole time? Is drop off okay?

Parents should bring the performers into the theater. For Dancing Stars, parents must remain in the theater until their performers have been dismissed. All other performers can be dropped off. If you would like to stay for an extended period of time during our dress rehearsal, you can sign up to be a volunteer during that time. Performers will be dismissed from rehearsal once they have completed all of their routines.
