It’s time to register for next year’s classes beginning August 12, 2017
Keep your tuition rate low

A $50 non-refundable registration fee received before July first will reserve your place in class at your present tuition rate. (Lauren Smith has preregistered every year since 2005 and still pays the rate established at $45.00 per month for a 90 minute class per week or $59.00 a month for a two hour class. ) Your actual amount of monthly tuition may rise if your class lasts longer.

Come to summer

The same $50 non-refundable registration fee received before July first entitles you to free summer classes. I should have a summer schedule soon. Last year there were eight classes for each of you during the summer.

Watch yourself on TV

The same $50 non-refundable registration fee received before July first entitles you to a DVD of this year’s entire show at the Stevens Center June 11 to be delivered at your first class in August. This is a professional three camera mix that includes everyone. Last year’s is playing on the TV in front of the sidewalk.

Pay money early

Monthly Tuition is based on 10 payments for a 40 class year. You may take a 10% discount on any tuition paid before July 1, 2017. This may include one month up to the entire year. After classes end you may mail registrations to 3800 Reynolda Road, suite #30, W-S, 27106.
Because the teaching year begins on August 12th all tuition payments will be due on the thirteenth of every month.
Schedule
Level II will meet Tuesday at 4:00 PM($54)
Level III will meet Monday at 6:00 PM($54)
Level IV will meet Tuesday at 5:30 PM($69)

questions? call “Mr. Robert” at 922-3547 or e-mail MrRobert@voglerdancer.com.

Surveys

Thank you for turning in your surveys so I could update my records. I received results from 92 per cent of you. Most of you reported that you like coming when you do now and seventy percent of you can do just that.

Schedule notes

If you don’t see the specific time you requested for class it doesn’t mean I ignored your survey. It means that the other students your age, skill, and experience level prefered a different day and time.The more uniform a class is the easier it is to teach. My goal is for you to dance with those students as close to you in ability as possible. But, if you can’t come to my ‘best’ class, you could still have a successful year in one of my other classes.

Practice CD’s

If your practice audio CD doesn’t work try it in a different CD player or DVD player or computer. Computer generated CD’s sometimes will only play in certain machines. If it doesn’t work please bring it back and I’ll burn you a copy on a different machine.
The students are used to dancing with their classmates in the dance room. It may be difficult for them at first to just jump into their dances by themselves. But, once they do, you’ll have to watch and watch and watch.

from: “Mr. Robert” to:all students

Dress Rehearsal Time

Dress Rehearsal will be from 9:00 AM until 11:45 AM on Saturday, June 10.

Spectators

No Spectators will be allowed at dress rehearsal Saturday, June 10. You will leave your child at her dressing room at 8:45 AM and pick her back up there at 11:45 AM. You may not stay to help unless you will be helping on Sunday. There is no space. I know that you would like to just drop your child off for 15 minutes, let her dance, and pick her up. But I tried that once and there was so much confusion with so many students coming and going that it was impossible to rehearse. Your child will be sitting in the theater watching the other students perform when she isn’t rehearsing.
We will also be taking group class pictures at Dress Rehearsal.

PARENT HELPERS NEEDED FOR RECITAL

During the show I like to have two adult volunteers for each class. These adults will not need tickets. All you do is keep the students together as a class during rehearsal and show. When the students are not performing the adults sit with them in the balcony. You follow the program and bring them to the stage at the appropriate time. You will have to tie some shoes and inspect costumes but mostly you will just share in the excitement of the students.
While your charges are on stage there is a special reserved “parent helper” section in the very front of the theater that you sit in . You will definitely be able to see your daughter from the theater section.
If you would like to help please sign the sheet in the classroom.
I also need four strong daddies to move gymnastics mats during rehearsal and show. I also need three friendly adults to help line up students side stage during the entire show.

Overlapping classes.
May 15-May 24

Check the newsletter your child receives after class for your specific times.

Ticket Sale Reminder

All seats are reserved for our show Sunday, June 11, at 3:00 PM. For those who are very particular about where they sit I will be selling tickets at the Studio, Friday, May 12 from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM for $10. After that day you may pick them up during any regular teaching hours for $11. NO LIMITS. Tickets will be $12 at the door June 11.

You may bring a friend at $10 per class during the summer. I can loan shoes to visitors, but they should be in dancewear.

2017NEWSLETTER FOR MAY

Yes, there is a May tuition payment.

re: My last teaching day will be Thursday, June 8. Be sure to complete all tuition payments, registrations, tights and shoe purchases, ticket purchases, etc. before 8:15 PM on that day. At dress rehearsal I am too busy to handle such things.
Tickets will be available at the door on Sunday, June 11, before the Show. There is no limit.

Dressing Rooms

On Saturday, June 10, you should be in your dressing room by 8:45 AM. You should already have your make-up on and your complete costume. The parent helper for your class volunteered to supervise the students during rehearsal and get them to the stage but she should not have to dress your child. Even if your child is not in the very beginning of the show she should be on time. The parent helper will be taking the class to the balcony when they are not performing in order to watch the rest of the show. They will also have their group picture taken at this time. The students will return to their dressing room at 11:45 AM for you to pick them up.
It is appropriate to take a break during the hours of dress rehearsal and the show to eat a snack. If you wish to donate something for everyone in the class to share make sure that it will not stain or ruin costumes. Consult your class parent helper for details.
Write your name on everything you bring, especially the outside of the bag that contains your shoes and accessories and
all costume pieces. Your name should be on the bottom arch of ballet shoes and your tap shoes. Leave your baton at home unless you are twirling in the show.
I do not have a ‘hair’ recital policy. My primary concern is ‘The Dance’. But do consider the kind of dance your daughter is doing and whether she is doing gymnastics. I have never ever looked out on stage and thought ‘Someone should do something about that child’s hair’ but I will admit looking out and thinking ‘That child has beautiful hair’.
I do not have a ‘make up’ recital policy. My primary concern is ‘The Dance’. I have never ever looked out on stage and thought ‘That child needs some makeup’ but I will admit looking out and thinking ‘that beautiful girl looks like a garish clown because someone put too much makeup on her’.
I do have a ‘no panty’ recital policy. When I look out on stage and see panties hanging out below a child’s costume I think it looks disgusting. If a student is wearing a costume and tights panties are redundant.
Classes that meet Tuesday 4:00 PM & Wednesday 6:00 PM will be in the Orchestra Room. Directions: Enter the theater by walking down the concrete stairs on Marshal Street which take you to the Performers Entrance that looks like a basement door. Turn Right, travel down the stairs to a corridor which winds to the left passing some older girls dressing. The Orchestra Room will be on your Right in the center of the Hall.
Classes that meet Saturday 9:00 AM & Monday 6:00 PM & Thursday 4:00 PM will be in the Men’s Dressing Room (with only little girls). Directions: Enter the theater by walking down the concrete stairs on Marshal Street which take you to the Performers Entrance that looks like a basement door. The Men’s dressing room is the door immediately in front of you.
Classes that meet Tuesday 5:30 PM & Monday 4:00 PM will be in the Women’s Dressing Room. Directions: Enter the theater by walking down the concrete stairs on Marshal Street which take you to the Performers Entrance that looks like a basement door. Turn left, follow the corridor as it turns right, at the T intersection turn right, the Women’s Dressing Room will be on your Right.
The Thursday 5:45 PM class will be in the Dressing Rooms labeled A, B, C, D, and E.. Each will hold 3 or 4 girls. Directions: Enter the theater by walking down the concrete stairs on Marshall Street which take you to the Performer’s Entrance that looks like a basement door. Turn right and go down the stairs.

On Sunday, June 11, the show begins at 3:00 PM. If you arrive later than 2:45 PM your class will have already left the dressing room to either go to the stage or the balcony.

TIGHTS

All students wear child Danskin style #387 microfiber WHITE tights:($13.00 including tax) or adult Danskin Style #72 ($14.00 including tax)
Classes that dance Thursday 5:45 PM and Tuesday 5:30 PM and Monday 4:00 PM also wear Shiny Toast tights with their Jazzy costume, Danskin style #331 child ($13.00 including tax)or #1331 Adult size ($15.00).
Wednesday 7:30 PM students wear Danskin style #702 in Ballet Pink ($16.00)

Shoes

All students will wear black tap shoes and white ballet shoes. All ballet shoes must be white in class after May 22. Please take all pink and black ballet shoes out of your daughter’s dance bag so that she won’t put them on during the show. I have had students who had white shoes, but they were so used to putting on their ‘foreign’ color shoes that they automatically put them on during the show and it wasn’t until they were dancing on stage that I discovered it.

Costume Notes for:
The Monday 4:00 PM class

Your first routine is ballet 13:30 into the show. During Dress Up class some put on their ballet costume backwards. The long part of the skirt hangs down in the back. Adjust the elastic straps for comfort. You wear white tights with your ballet costume. Be sure and rehearse at home how to keep the headband in while you are dancing. You must wear the headband.
You have 26 minutes to change into your jazzy costume and put on your tap shoes. During dress up class some put on their Jazzy costume backwards. The blue arm goes on the right side and the blue leg on the left side. The right sleeve has a thumb hole. The leg has a stirrup on the bottom. There is an elastic shoulder strap you may adjust. The mesh arm tie must be secure so that it doesn’t come loose while dancing or doing gymnastics. You wear shiny toasty tights with your jazzy costume. Be sure and rehearse at home how to keep the two scarfs in your hair while you are dancing and doing gymnastics. They must not fall out on stage.
You have 19 minutes to change your shoes to prepare for your jazz dance.
You have 10 minutes to prepare for gymnastics
You have 12 minutes to prepare for your baton routine. Alert: Before entering from stage right with one baton you must place your second baton on stage left where you can find it quickly.

Don’t leave rehearsal without getting your picture taken in both costumes.
At the show you may get your trophy in the costume of your choice.

Monday 6:00 PM

Your first routine is tap 16:30 from the beginning of the show. During dress up class I pinned the bow to the front of the skirt, trying to make the longest part of the skirt hang down in back. The elastic straps may be adjusted for comfort. The halter must be tied behind the neck.
You have 19 minutes to remove your hair piece and skirt to get ready for gymnastics. No panties can show. When you are upside down doing gymnastics panties that hang down can look VERY BAD. If you have a costume and tights on panties may not be necessary.

Leave your baton at home.

After your ballet routine Gracie has only six minutes to change into her EXTRA gymnastics costume. I want her class to watch her at dress rehearsal. They don’t have time to go to the balcony. I recommend they exit the stage like the parent helpers do and sit in the Orchestra section at dress rehearsal ONLY.

Don’t leave rehearsal until your picture is taken in each of your costumes.
You may wear your favorite costume when you go on stage to get your trophy

Leave your baton at home.
Don’t leave dress rehearsal until we have taken your group class picture.

Beatlephonic Medley is first. White tights with ballet costume. During dress up class I tied the shoulder ties around your LEFT SHOULDER. Arange the headpiece however it is most attractive in your hair.

During Dress up class one student put her costume on backwards. The left arm is orange and the right arm is bare.
Then you have 34 minutes to put your skirt on and prepare for your ballet routine.
Then you have 34 minutes to change into your tap shoes and tie them tight.

After your ballet you have only SIX MINUTES TO CHANGE COSTUMES. Leave your white tights on.

Trophies

At the end of the performance each student will come on stage to receive a trophy. The only students receiving trophies will be those on stage at the end of the show. If you leave before I give out trophies you will not receive one.

Roses

The flower lady who has sold roses at the show since 1989 will be in the lobby again. Her flowers will be fresh and in water. Price last year was $6.50.

Flashes

Flash photography can upset and distract the dancers. Remember that these are young students and one flash in the wrong place can ruin their entire performance. Flash Photography is also impractical and ineffective at the distances in the theater. The theater is bright enough that most cameras will take pictures without flash. The pictures you see splattered all around the Studio were taken without the use of flash during the show at the Stevens Center. IF YOU DO NOT CUT THE FLASH OFF ON YOUR CAMERA I WILL STOP THE SHOW IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR DAUGHTER’S DANCE UNTIL YOU DO. I HAD TO DO THIS LAST YEAR (2016).

Videos

Please remember that no tripods, video lights, or flash photography will be allowed during the show. Handheld video cameras are allowed but please warn your cameraman to respect those sitting in seats. Just because you have a camera does not give you the right to stand in front of people. We did ban video cameras in 1988, 1989, and 1990 because of the rude actions of some parents in 1987. Be sure and cut off the red flashing light some video cameras have.
When I went to give out trophies five years ago(6/5/11) a video light from the second row was shining directly into my eyes. Like a one inch diameter flash light beam in my face. I felt bad for all my students who had to endure that light during the show. As bright as the stage is no video camera will need extra light. TURN YOUR LIGHTS OFF PLEASE.

25. ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ was released on Sgt. Pepper in 1967. Joe Cocker released as a single in 1968. Dance created 2017. The theme during this gymnastics routine is that whenever the lyrics say ‘with a little help from my friends’ they will spot or assist another student.

transition: ‘Roll Over Beethoven’: a song I actually tried to create a routine to but the students actually rebelled saying it was too repetitive. The Beatles originally released the song on ‘With the Beatles’ in 1963. This version is by George Harrison live in Japan 1992. Song written by Chuck Berry 1956.

26. ‘Birthday’ is from the ‘White Album’ 1968. Dance created 1988. Show was on June 12, my daughter Mia’s second birthday. I scoured the universe for every birthday related song I could find that year.

33. ‘Ticket to Ride’ was released on ‘Help’ in 1965. Vanilla Fudge released their version in 1966. Dance created 2017.

35. ‘A Hard Day’s Night’, a single in 1964. Dance created 2017.

36. ‘Come Together’ from Abbey Road 1969. Dance created 2017. I gave them a lot of choices and they chose this song. The theme during this gymnastics routine was that whenever the lyrics would say ‘Come together’ that the students would do something together.

transition: ‘The End’ from Beatles Anthology 3. I just figured very appropriate.
