DanZQuest December Newsletter

DanZQuest presents, “Christmas is Coming” on Sunday December 12, 2021, at 1:30 pm at Kenan Auditorium. The Christmas recital will showcase our company and recreational dancers with all styles of dance and should last approximately 1.5 hours. The auditorium will not open until 1:15 pm for spectators. Once your recital fee, $60.00 per family is paid, admission will be free to all family and friends, so bring everyone! Students must have the correct attire/shoes for each class to perform and all DanZQuest accounts must be current. All dancers need to be dressed and ready to dance when they arrive. Dressing rooms for the girls/boys will be located behind the stage. Please bring your dancer around to the back of Kenan Auditorium four numbers before they dance. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SIDE DOOR ON THE STAGE. Please make sure you leave your dancer with a teacher or a parent volunteer (with a DanZQuest shirt on). Teachers will ask for parent volunteers (for the younger students) to bring all the students from the class back and then return them to you in the lobby. Combination classes (tap/jazz) will stay backstage until they have performed both of their dances. Please make sure dance shoes and any other items are labeled and put in a bag with your child’s name on it. All dancers may sit in the auditorium to watch the show in between their dances; however, they are not allowed to wear any tap/clogging shoes in the auditorium. Dancers are not allowed to run or play in the aisles or in the front of the stage. This is very distracting to the dancers who are on stage. All dancers are invited to come and participate in the last number of the show “We wish you a Merry Christmas”. Dancers can be picked up on stage once this number is over. FYI, Santa Clause will be attending our show and will be seeing all the children in the lobby after the show. The Christmas show will not be professionally taped so please feel free to video.           If you would like to volunteer backstage at the Christmas show or if you have any questions, please email Tanya Evers at danzquest100@gmail.com.

NEW this year we will do a “Christmas Sock Exchange” in each class (no clogging production class). Buy a pair Christmas socks and stuff one of them full of your favorite goodies. Take the other sock and tie it around the stuffed sock. You can fill them with candy, nail polish, or random knick knacks. The socks can be plain, fuzzy, or have tons of flamingoes, just as longs as they warm your toes. We will exchange our “Christmas Socks” during each class. If any of your classes have boys & girls, please make sure your items in your socks are for both.
