Dear CDT Dancers and Families,
Congratulations on your hard work this year at California Dance Theatre! Despite viruses, wind, rain, power outages, masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizer, you’ve managed to make this year as great as it can be and we’ve enjoyed watching all of you adapt and grow as dancers. You can all feel very proud of yourselves for your dedication and hard work this year! Keep it up!
We’d like to showcase your hard work and talent in a new virtual recital format this year. Our virtual recital, One World, will include filmed, choreographed, multi-level medleys and collaborations and will be available for each student.
We encourage everyone to be a part of our 2021 One World Recital. All choreography will be learned in your regular classes and filming will take place some time before June 12th outside of class time on a day/time to be determined for each class. You must attend class in person to be a part of the recital piece but whether you choose to perform or not, you may still attend class (virtually or in person) and learn the choreography along with your classmates.
We will not be ordering costumes this year. Each number will come up with costumes on their own utilizing items that dancers already have or can obtain easily and inexpensively. In some cases, you may even be able to use costumes purchased from last year or from our PFB resources.
Not every class will have a recital piece but every class level will. Please view the list below to see which classes will be performing. Classes not on the list will remain as technique classes until June.
We are requesting a $75. participation fee per student (not per class) in order to be a part of the virtual performance experience. This fee will cover our expenses incurred from filming, editing, and locations. It will also include your One World Recital DVD. You can visit the store on the CDT website to pay for your recital participation/DVD . http://caldancetheatre.com/store
