Audience Notes

At this time, the hotel is requesting that masks be worn and social distancing be adhered to the entire time you are inside the building.

EACH FAMILY MUST sign up on SignUpGenius.com for one of the many volunteer positions!

BACKSTAGE MOMS NEEDED!

Each class needs a backstage mom. Backstage mom duties include: sitting with the class in the designated waiting area, making sure dancers are properly costumed, getting dancers on and off the stage, and releasing each dancer to her/his parent at the specified time. You must be available for dress rehearsal. If you are interested in taking on this very important job, please sign up on SignUpGenius.com. If your child is in more than one dance, let the quick change parent change her costume. It is very distracting for parents to keep entering and exiting the auditorium, and there is just not enough room in the dressing rooms for each child to have her/his parent backstage.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteer opportunities include: Backstage Parent (Dress rehearsal and Performance), Auditorium set-up (day of dress rehearsal), Ushers, Lobby flower, t-shirt, DVD sales, and Auditorium/Dressing room clean up. Please sign up on sign-up genius.

ALL Costume and June Show PAYMENTS ARE NOW DUE! Please remit payment online, or in the Williamsburg mail slot or Yorktown tuition box. All fees, including June tuition, must be paid to perform in the June Show! If you have any questions about your totals, please email VRB at adelle@dancevrb.com.

Tickets and t-shirts must be pre-ordered by June 5th and will be distributed on Picture Day (June 5th).

TICKETS – Tickets must be pre-ordered and paid for in full.

Tickets will be distributed to you on Picture Day. All tickets may be purchased for $10 each. Tickets are available at the studio ONLY. To purchase tickets at the studio, complete the ticket form and drop it in the mail slot or tuition drop box along with payment (cash or check payable to Virginia Regional Ballet). Pre-ordered tickets will be available for pickup during Picture Day. Order forms are available at the studio. Children attending (and not performing in) the June Show must have a ticket unless they are able to sit in a ticket-holder’s lap (3 years old and under only). The tickets largely contribute to the cost of renting the theaters. There is limited seating. Due to CDC guidelines at the this time, audiences are at 50% capacity and must still maintain social distancing. This year, performances have been divided into 45-60 minute performances with no intermissions. Tickets must be purchased for each show you plan to attend. Please stay for the entire show. The last group deserves as big an audience as the first group.

PICTURE DAY – Savand Action Photography

Saturday, June 5th, 2020 from 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Williamsburg Studio

Save the date! Group and individual portraits will be taken ONLY on Saturday, June 5th! The picture day schedule is listed below. Dancers should arrive 10 minutes prior to class time with make up and hair fully complete. All costumes will be in the small studio upon arrival and should be left at the studio after pictures. Even if you are not planning to order individual portraits of your dancer, please attend picture day so that your dancer will be included in the group photo. Please let VRB know if your dancer will not be able to be present for her/his class photo(s).

Professional Photos Will be taken during dress rehearsal for purchase.

Dress Rehearsal will begin promptly at the designated times in full costume and make-up. We will run the show in order. Please report to your dressing room mother in the auditorium. You will find your class name on a row in the auditorium. We will practice the backstage line-up, and entering and exiting the stage. Please, no eating or drinking in auditorium.

Parents, you are to wait for your child in the auditorium. Please, NO DROP OFFS! This is a good time to take pictures and/or videos of your child (No flash please!). Both will be prohibited during the performances. After each class has rehearsed on the stage, the class mom will escort the dancers, as a group, to the back of the auditorium. Please hang your dancer’s costumes on the designated costume racks; dancers must leave their costumes, accessories and shows at the theatre between dress rehearsal and the show. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO WEAR HIS/HER COSTUME OUTSIDE OF THE THEATRE! Please check with your class mom before leaving; she may have notes from your dancer’s teacher.

Backstage Notes

DANCERS AND CLASS PARENTS ONLY! Dads: We ask that you stay out of the dressing rooms completely. (We are not trying to be discriminatory but your presence sometimes makes the girls a little uneasy when they are changing. There are a lot of other volunteer opportunities for you!)

The current rule in the hotel is that dancers must wear their masks backstage. Dancers WILL NOT be wearing masks while performing UNLESS the dancer’s parent has required it.

Cast & Pool Party

In respect for your family time, there will not be a cast party. Instead, we will have a pool party and cook out at the Williamsburg Community Pool adjacent to the Williamsburg studio on Tuesday, June 15th from 6:00PM – 8:00PM *NEW TIME (TENTATIVELY). More information will be posted and emailed about the pool party.
