What does a child learn in dance class?
Dance pictures are taken every spring at Focal Point studios in Plymouth. Two designated photo days for our studio are arranged, and dancers make their appointments on those days. For their photos, dancers are dressed in costume, with full makeup and hair up.
Photos can be taken in various combinations: individually, with siblings or friends and even with Dads for our Dad Daughter Dance. Orders are paid in full on photo day, and pictures are available for pick-up at the studio the week after recital.
Our recital is professionally videotaped and compiled. The recital DVDs can be purchased. Flash photography is not allowed at recital as it is too distracting to dancers and the audience. It is, however, allowed at the on-stage blocking and dress rehearsals only.
All students wear costumes in our annual recital. The costumes are geared toward the recital theme. We choose our costumes carefully, looking for more modest costumes and avoiding two-piece costumes at all age levels.
In November, we introduce our dancers to the costumes they will wear at recital. In addition, dancers are measured for their costumes to ensure the best fit. Costume payments are due by Halloween, and costume delivery is usually in early spring.
