CHRISTMAS SHOW 2017


merry-xmas-stamp-header.jpgDear Stage Left families,

Our annual Christmas show is right around the corner! I have to admit...it's my favorite time of year and favorite event of our season. 

Here are some details for you to keep you stress free this time of year. This event should be a joy-filled memory for your child, so please don't sweat the details. Things will come together just perfectly...whether "perfect" or not!  Enjoy this special time with your dancer, they grow up so fast, trust me on that one! 

Why do a Christmas show?
Because dancers want to perform, and although we are only 3.5 months into the 9 month season, what better time than to pause and allow them to show you what they have learned so far. This is the season about a child...and all our children. So until further notice: Celebrate everything!

I have to buy a costume or pay a deposit? I'm so confused! 
OK, I know this gets to be a bit of a puzzle, but here it goes. So here's what we do about costumes for our shows: 
     November: pay a $25 deposit per dance class for the MAY recital costume. 
     December: As we plan the Christmas recital, we do advance order 20% of our May recital costumes and use them for the Christmas recital (and again in May). As they arrive off the truck in December, balance is due before the Christmas show. 
      December: 80% of classes wear things from home or inexpensive for the Christmas recital. A list of what you will need for each routine is posted December 1st online at www.stageleftacademy.com, Each dancer will also need a Christmas dress/party outfit for the finale. Everyone is in the finale! Please wear only Christmas colors, red, green, white, silver, gold. They are singing Silent Night!
     Early March: Costumes arrive off the truck for all classes that did not have their costume in december, balance is now due, costumes worn for May recital. 


How can I buy tickets?
Advanced Ticket sales for the show are ON SALE DECEMBER 1ST at the lobby window and including dress rehearsal night. Seats are not assigned and doors will open at 6pm to get your seat. $12 each.

Tickets will also be sold at the door the night of the show! $15

SILENT NIGHT
sparkling_gold_tree.jpg
Silent night! holy night!
All is calm all is bright
round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent night! holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
glories stream from heaven afar
heavenly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Saviour is born!

Silent night! holy night!
Son of God love's pure light
radiant beams from thy holy face
with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
