As most of you know we have been working on a big number to go at the end of the show ‘Friend like me’ from Aladdin the musical the piece is 7 mins long so it’s a big number!. It starts off with the musical theatre group then uses the Grade 3 modern (who have been having practices on a Saturday morning) group then grade 2 tap. The piece has references to beauty and the beast and the little mermaid so I would like to use the children who are in Beauty and the beast dance (yellow Belle dress 10:15 class) as well for a small part of the dance.
I need to now put the dance together as the children have learnt the dances individually but, the only space I have to put it all together is saturday morning 9:30 – 10:15. I understand Saturdays are difficult for everyone to get to but it is really difficult to piece a dance together if not everybody is there. So it would be amazing if your child could come to as many of the planned rehearsals as possible. There is no charge for this rehearsal.
The children involved in the dance are (in running order):
- Musical theatre
- Amy Nixon and Emily Hulme – Gymnastics – will be sending a seperate email to explain
- Grade 3 Modern
- Pre Primary Ballet – Beauty and the beast
- Little mermaid – Baby ballet
- Grade 3 Tap
After this finale number this group will remain on stage to sing a song (one night one moment from nativity) and then it will be the finale of the show.
When are the extra Saturday rehearsals?
We start rehearsals for this on the first Saturday back – 29th April at 9.30am (as there is quite alot to do!!) and rehearsals will run up until the show.
Any questions do let me know, a massive thank you from me for the extra support and commitment you give and are giving in the run up to the show!
Hope all of the above makes sense- in short if your child is in any of the above classes they need to be at dancing on a Saturday 9:30 – 10:15!
Thanks again, Jess
