Hi Parents,

We are excited to present our annual Showcase Week December 14th – 17th. Showcase Week is a chance for our students to show their family and friends what they have been working on during the Fall Session. Because of Covid-19 our Showcase performances will be on Zoom this year for the audience members, family, and friends.

Being that things are different this year with how we will be doing our show case performances please carefully read through all of the information below so that you don’t miss anything.

We have come up with two sets of plans for our Showcase week and will keep a close eye on the COVID-19 restrictions and if things change, we will move from Plan A to Plan B. We will stick with our Plan A unless the restrictions move up to a “Level Purple- Stay at Home Order”.

Plan A: How Zoom Showcase Week Will Work:

  • Dancers will be in the studio for their performance. If you would rather your dancer perform on Zoom from their home, that is an option as well.
  • Parents and audience members will be watching from Zoom.
  • Zoom links will be sent out the night before for the following day’s Showcase performance.
  • Family and friends are welcome to log on and watch your dancers in all of their Zoom performances. You will simply share the Zoom link with them so they can log on and take part in the fun.
  • We will have several camera angels for you to “Pin” the best view of your dancer.
  • Students are assigned a time to arrive which will be 30 minutes before their performance time.
  • Performances are in lieu of regular classes.
  • Strength & Flexibility, and Technique classes do not have dances to perform and these classes will not be held the week of Showcase.
  • Dancer Pick up times are listed on the attached schedule please try to pick up your dancer during the time frame listed unless they are dancing in multiple Showcase performances.

Plan B: How Zoom Showcase Week Will Work:

  • If we are required to move to a “Level Purple – Stay at Home Order” The performance times will take place half way through the dancers regularly scheduled class/classes via Zoom. (if you can remember how we did our Zoom recital in June it will be the exact same format)
  • Family and friends are welcome to log on a watch your dancers in all of their Zoom performances. You will share the zoom link with them so they can log on and take part in the fun.
  • Strength & Flexibility, and Technique classes do not have dances to perform and these classes will not be held the week of Showcase.

Dress Code for Showcase Week:

  • Dancers can wear eye make up to bring out their eyes more on zoom.
  • Girls Hair- must wear a low pony tail with bangs pinned back or combed over to the side. (we want to see as much of their face as possible!)
  • All Dancers including Company are to wear solid black bra top or solid black leotard and solid black leggings, with a solid black mask.
  • Dancers must wear proper shoes for the dance style they are performing.
  • Recreational Ballet Classes and Pre-Ballet/Tap – Black leotard and pink tights, can add skirt if wanted, pink ballet shoes/ black tap shoes and a solid black mask.
  • Ballet/Jazz Combo – Black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes for ballet, can wear skirt if wanted. Black leggings and black or tan jazz shoes for Jazz and a solid black mask.
  • Hip Hop and Break Classes – Solid black top and black sweat pants or leggings (girls), sneakers. and a solid black mask.

Thank you for you continued support and understanding during these difficult times. We are so happy that we are still able to dance in our beautiful studio with our amazing Centerstage Starz Dancers!

Thank you,

Centerstage Starz Team
