Unlike any recital experience ever before, CPAA is offering our own Cabaret performances! This years Art Alive Performance will Wrapped up with short, thirty to forty minute productions. The Cabaret feel will be complete with concessions, flowers, CPAA t-shirts sales, and a raffle, all contributing to the construction of our new Black Box Theatre!
DRESS REHEARSAL Art Alive Dress Rehearsals are July 12th and 13th. Please see the Dress Rehearsal Schedule to find out when your dancer is rehearsing. Please arrive with your dancer dressed in their costumes and wearing full makeup!If your dancer’s class purchased a catalog costume, please visit the “Resources” tab in your Jackrabbit Parent Portal to see which tights and shoes your dancer will wear. If your dancer’s class did not purchase a catalog costume, please use the DIY Costume Reference Sheet to see what your dancer will wear
AUDIENCE AND TICKET DETAILS Based on current Covid regulations, we are having to limit our audience size. Rather than selling tickets to these performances, we are offering 2 complimentary tickets to each family on a designated date/time. You will be contacted privately and told which performance your family is invited to. AT THIS TIME ALL AUDIENCE MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK. We understand that people may have more family they would like to invite or might have a conflict with the dates we have selected for their viewing… But please know that we have been hard at work thoughtfully designing these shows based on the audience we can invite. We are trying to make sure the day you are invited is the best option for viewing your dancer while avoiding an overcrowded experience. If more tickets are available they will be for purchase at $15 per ticket on a first come first serve basis.
CALL TIME Call time for your dancer is 30 minutes prior to show start time. PLEASE allow enough time for parking.
PARKING Please plan to drop your dancers off at the Studio M gate for check-in. If you are staying and viewing the show, please park in the YMCA Gymnastics Center parking lot, as parking will be limited near the studio.
VOLUNTEERS All parent or student volunteers will also check in at the gate outside of Studio M. Please arrive 45 minutes before show time!
COSTUMES Dancers need to arrive in their costumes with hair done and makeup on for their first routine of that day. To find out exact hair styles, shoes, and tights, please visit the “Resources” tab on your Jackrabbit Parent Portal for your dancer’s Costume Reference Sheet (for catalog costumes). If your dance is using a DIY costume, please use the DIY Costume Reference Sheet located in your parent portal under "Latest News and Announcoements). Please see the show orders to know which costume to arrive in for each show.
CHECK IN Student check-in is at the side gate outside of Studio M. There we will have CPAA staff check in your dancer and direct them to their designated backstage area. All volunteers will check in here too.
AUDIENCE All audience members will enter into the Black Box Theatre through the garage door of Suite M. Families will need to check in with the CPAA staff member upon entry, so please have your tickets ready. If you have not picked up your tickets, please do so during dress rehearsal. ALL audience members must have face coverings while indoors.Although seating in the Black Box Theatre is temporary, the structure is built to safely support the chairs.
