*Dancers are charged a $50.00 participation fee to participate in the Year-end Showcase. This fee is per child, will be charged on April 15th, and is non-refundable.

**Each family will be designated 4 tickets for purchase to ensure all families are able to attend. On May 19th, any remaining tickets that have not yet been purchased will be released & families wanting more than the originally allotted number will be able to purchase additional tickets for family members to attend. The seating is general, so if if you purchase your tickets in 2 groupings you will still be able to sit together on Showcase day.

Seating Seating Seating

Seating is on a first-come basis, and fire regulations dictate that children two years of age and older require their own seat and may not sit on a parent’s lap.

All About Costumes

An important element in our Year-End Showcase is the costumes that add color, vibrancy, and beauty to the stage.

We ask if minor costume alterations need to be made that perhaps a parent, neighbor or friend can make these alterations for you as there has been no added charge with which to cover the cost of a seamstress.

Costumes will be given out in class in April/May. A costume Dress Requirement sheet with information regarding costume, hair, make-up, shoes, etc. will be posted well in advance so you can purchase the required items.

Digital Photos Videos Photos & Videos

MDA is using the services of both a professional video company as well as a professional photographer to capture each dance performed at the theatre! You will receive an online link to both photos and video which you can share with family! All dancers share equally in the cost, which is included in your participation fee. In addition to MDA providing both professional photos and videos, we encourage parents to capture their dancer on stage, too, with their on cameras/phones. This further helps to ensure that each family captures any photo and/or video that we may inadvertently miss.

Professional VIDEOS aim to capture the entire group performing on stage. There are no closeups or zooming in on individual dancers, instead the entire routine is recorded. If you would like to zoom in on your child only/specifically please plan to record this with your own device.

Professional PHOTOS are captured of our youngest dancers from both the right and left side of the stage given most dancers look toward their instructor (on the side) for guidance while performing on stage. If you would like to zoom in on your child only/specifically please plan to do so with your own device.

Our more mature dancers, who don’t require as much teacher support while performing, will be filmed from the centre of the theatre. If you would like to zoom in on your child only/specifically please plan to do so with your own device.

If in addition to the above photo services you will have the option of a solo photo of your child as another wonderful keepsake. Signup details will be shared in case this may be of interest to you.

Our Commitment to You Your Dancer

We are committed to making your child’s experience the best it possibly can be!

  1. You can order a beautifully wrapped rose to gift to your child following their Showcase performance.
  2. Help us to say a big thank you to our amazing teachers! Teacher appreciation donation option will be made available to you.
  3. Please volunteer to help make the show the best it can be. We rely on parent participation and help in order to run the show and the practice rehearsal run smoothly.

The Year-End Showcase is a celebration of the dancers’ hard work, progress and enjoyment of dance and we look forward to seeing our dancers shine on the stageđź’–
