What dance will my child be learning?
Your child will learn two choreographed dances for each showcase to share with you. These dances will be fun and entertaining, which will allow your child a positive experience on stage. We have seen much success with children as they perform for an audience each year.
Are there any extra services that come with the classes?
There will be pictures in the spring with your child's class (tentatively the last weeks in April). Time and location will be announced as springtime gets closer. There will be video and flower service available for purchasing at each showcase for your convenience.
What are the class fees?
The class fee is due by the child's first dance class of each month. There is a $6 late fee; attached to your bill if after the 7th of each month. Please contact Miss Christie for the class costs.
What holidays are classes cancelled for?
All school holidays are observed. Thanksgiving break will be November 24th through November 26th. Winter Break is December 20th through December 31st. Spring break is April 11th to April 15th. Put these dates on your calendar now so that there aren't any surprises or confusions.
What are Showcases?
There are two showcases a year: Winter and Spring. This is where the parents get to see the children perform the dances that they have learned in class for their family and friends. Times for the showcases will be announced as time draws nearer. Both showcases will be held at the Cosumnes River College Performing Arts Center at 8401 Center Parkway, Sacramento. Their office phone number is (916) 691-7251.
What are the fees for the Showcases?
There is a one-time $129 showcase fee that covers the cost for both showcases during the school year and the costume, which is yours to keep (the same costume will be used for the winter and spring shows). The Showcase Fee price is the same regardless if your child participates in one or both Showcases in a given school year, since the same costume will be used for both showcases. Each dancer will receive two complimentary showcase tickets and additional tickets are available for $10 each. These can be purchased prior to the showcase for $10.00, or at the door for $15.00. If your child only participates in one Showcase, the Showcase fee is still the same ($129).
What are the requirements for the Jazzerettes Showcases?
Cost for the outfits and showcase fees is $129.00. This cost includes the outfit and payment for two showcases (Winter and Spring Showcase). Family and friends are invited to come and see the showcases.
Location of the showcases is at the Cosumnes River College Performing Arts Theater. Address is: 8401 Center Parkway, Sacramento. Their phone number is (916) 691-7251.
Your child needs to be there 15 minutes before the showcase starts. The Showcase lasts approximately one hour.
Girls need to have their hair in a bun with a hair piece pinned to the bun with a bobby pin. If hair is too short, just pull up the sides and pin the hair piece. Please come with this already done to the show. Girls need to have white tights and pink ballet slippers to accompany their dance outfit. Girls can wear blush and lipstick to accompany their attire, the lights are bright and it makes great looks for finishing touches. Please do this beforehand.
Boys need to have black or white tennis shoes to accompany their outfit
Please come fully dressed and ready to dance the day of the showcase. Make sure that your child goes to the bathroom before they enter the dressing rooms.
We can only allow one parent from each school class to stay with the children in the dressing rooms, along with a designated chaperone. Please call if you want to do this.
There will be a video service and flower service there that day for your convenience.
