Thank YOU for being a part of ViBE for the 2017-2018 dance season! The last week of classes will take place from Saturday, May 26th until Thursday, May 31st.
As we approach the Year-End Recitals, we want to encourage your child to use theChoreography Videos from our website at www.vibestudio.ca We have witnessed tremendous improvement in dancers who are using the videos; their confidence is soaring, they know the dances, and their smiles are contagious! We want ALL dancers to benefit from using the Choreography Videos, and therefore strongly suggest that dancers take advantage of this useful tool that we offer at ViBE! The password for all videos is vibe.
YEAR-END RECITALS 2018 We are excited for the 8 performances taking place on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd 2018 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts located at 5040 Yonge Street (north of Sheppard and south of Finch). Our goal is to make the ViBE Year-End Recitals a positive, stress-free, and memorable experience for your child….and for you too!
LAST MINUTE TICKETS – Tickets are still available!! Tickets to the Year-End Recitals continue to be sold through Ticket Masterwww.ticketermaster.ca and the Theatre Box Office. The Box Office will open one hour prior to the start of every Year-End Recital for any last minute purchases.
ARRIVAL TIME & DROP-OFF PROCEDURE We ask that dancers arrive within 30 minutes prior to their Recital time at the SIGN-IN DOOR located on NORTH YORK BLVD. ViBE signs will be placed around the theatre to help direct you to the SIGN-IN DOOR. ViBE Staff will be waiting to greet you, help to sign in your child, and escort them backstage to join their Teachers, Assistants, and fellow dancers. We remind you that parents will not be allowed backstage.
PHOTO BOOTHS Outside the SIGN-IN DOOR there will be two Photo Booths available to capture the excitement of the Recitals – in addition to 4 different ViBE photographers! Please take advantage of these opportunities to help provide your family with memories of the Recitals! Photos will be posted on Facebook after the Year-End Recitals – make sure you are following https://www.facebook.com/ViBEdanceandfitness/ to access ALL of the amazing photos!!
ATTIRE Dancers should arrive dressed in their costume and ready to dance. We ask that dancers wear running shoes, please do not wear flip flops. We recommend that you LABEL all costume pieces and personal belongings with the dancer’s full name.
SNACKS & DRINKS We ask that every dancer bring a few Nut Free snacks as well as a water bottle to their Year-End Recital. We suggest bringing the snacks in a labelled plastic bag that can be easily thrown out once eaten.
PERSONAL BELONGINGS All personal belongings must be clearly labeled with the dancer’s first and last name. ViBE and the Toronto Centre for the Arts are not responsible for any lost or stolen items; therefore PLEASE LEAVE VALUABLES AT HOME.
BACKSTAGE SUPERVISION Dancers will remain backstage for the entire duration of the show. All dancers will be well supervised and having fun backstage while the show unfolds onstage. There will be lots of bathroom breaks and tons of fun activities for young dancers. It will be a wonderful and enjoyable experience from start to finish!!
LENGTH OF SHOW Each of the 8 Year-End Recitals will be approximately ONE HOUR in length with no intermission.
FINALE At the ViBE Year-End Recitals, all dancers will once again grace the stage at the end of the show for the annual FINALE! This is an exciting performance where we highlight the different age groups of performers dancing together in one extended routine. It is always one of the highlights of the show!
DANCER PICK-UP PROCEDURE After the FINALE, dancers will be escorted by ViBE Dance Teachers and Assistants to the front foyer of the theatre where they will wait for their parents under specific AGE GROUP SIGNS. When the entire FINALE is over, we ask that ONE PARENT pick up their child in order to minimize confusion. This will be a busy and exciting time, and we thank you ahead of time for your co-operation and support.
FLOWERS There will be a variety of flowers available for purchase in the theatre foyer before and after each Year-End Recital. For your convenience, you can PRE-ORDER your Recital Flowers and pick them up at the theatre. Simply click on the link: https://www.thecommencementgroup.com/vibe/
VIDEOTAPING Once again, we will be allowing audience members to videotape the Year-End Recitals from their seats. We remind you to be respectful and courteous to the other members of our ViBE family in the audience, and to the theatre staff too!
