Dance Recital

Each year ends with a June dance recital at Pantages Playhouse Theatre. The recital is always an exciting part of a dancer’s development as a performer. All classes, with the exception of ten-week classes, are included in the recital. All participating students must purchase a costume. (See Dress Code & Policies for costume details.)

Tickets

Tickets are distributed by Ticketmaster.  These can be purchased by phone (204-780-3333), in person at all Ticketmaster locations, and through the internet at www.ticketmaster.ca

Parent Volunteers

We very much need and appreciate the help of parents during recital. In fact, it would be impossible to hold recitals without the support of parents. We always make a call for parent volunteers in our spring newsletter. As of April, there will be volunteer sign-up sheets posted on the school’s bulletin board. Your help is always very much appreciated.

Video-Taping & Photography

During Rising Star Academy of Arts dance recitals, audience members are not allowed to videotape or photograph dancers on stage due to privacy laws and theatre rules.  Because of these policies Rising Star provides a professionally recorded dance recital DVD free to all registered families.  Please keep in mind that professional individual & group photo packages are done earlier during the month of April by professional photographers during picture day.


Music Recital

Rising Star Academy of Arts holds two music recitals for our private music students each year at Tabor Baptist Church (for map click here).    Our winter concert is in January after the holiday rush and our year end recital is held in June.  We offer afternoon and evening performances in order to keep our recitals to an hour duration.

All students taking private music lessons are encouraged to attend both concerts to demonstrate their progress throughout the year.  Students from our Musical Theatre program also participate.


Theatre Performances

Our Broadway Bound program has been a great success; our goal is to perform at the annual Winnipeg Fringe Festival in July, and our Broadway Bound class has done just that in July 2015 and 2016.  Acceptance in the Fringe Festival is on a lottery basis, so if we do not get picked in the lottery we will rent a theatre and put on our show at the end of June.  Registered families will receive a free DVD of the performance.
