Recital Ticket Info

Posted: Nov 9, 2019

RECITAL IS COMING

Our 2019 Holiday Recital will take place on Saturday, December 14th at Vanier Hall in PGSS.

All dancers are invited to perform! If your student does NOT wish to participate in recital (or cannot, for any reason) please let us know ASAP. Dance Shoppe staff in charge of costuming will be notified, as well as your instructor. Choreography is heavily dependent on numbers and an absent student may require changing the dance ... not something a choreographer wants to do at the last minute!

TICKET SALES

Recital tickets will be available for purchase as of Monday, November 18th @ 3pm in the Excalibur Dance Shoppe. Seating is reserved and limited, you will be asked to view a seating chart and select your tickets. Again, attending recital is optional but be sure to let us know if you intend to opt out.

Please be aware that recital tickets sell fast! If you desire specific seating, we strongly recommend visiting the ticket table during the first few days of sales. Be prepared for long lines and wait times, as well as the usual studio parking issues. If you cannot purchase tickets right away, don't panic! We do our best to ensure that no show sells out. :)

There will be FOUR performances. The first three shows are organized by recreational age groups, meaning each student will dance in a specific recital based on the age of their class (see below for details). The fourth performance is for dancers enrolled in our competitive troupe program. Each highland level takes part in a specific show, their participation is also detailed below.

Please note the age ranges listed for the first three performances. Compared to previous seasons, the age combinations are quite different. 2019/20 is our biggest season yet, and in order to avoid overcrowding, we have had carefully consider where each group performs. IMPORTANT: The age range of your class(es) will determine which performance to attend, NOT the actual age of your student. Be sure not to confuse the two when purchasing tickets or you may end up with seats for the wrong show!

PLEASE NOTE: There will be NO REFUNDS on purchased tickets. This should eliminate the practice of buying up an entire row only to return half of the tickets a few days before the performance. Yes, it does happen! Seating is limited. Please, buy only the tickets you know you can use.

ALSO: There will be a significant discount if you attend multiple performances. :)

If you are unsure of which show(s) your student is in, please contact the office for assistance.

If you are new to Excalibur and this is your first recital, no worries! Expect to receive plenty of additional information in the weeks to come.
