Upcoming Dates and Information 

Hi On Center Families!
The end of the year is almost near, and we only have three weeks until recital!! Classes have been working so hard all year and are looking fantastic–we are so excited! Our theme for the show is ‘At the Movies’ so you will recognize a lot of the songs…it is going to be a good time!!

We want to give you a rundown of what the rest of the year will look like. So, please pay attention to all of the detail in this post! 

Monday May 29th: There is NO CLASS due to Memorial Day. We hope you can take the time to enjoy the long weekend as well as remember all of the people that have served our country.

June 5th: LOCKERS! If your students have lockers here at the studio, please make sure they empty them on their last class of this week (please take locks home with you). We will take everything left in the lockers to Good Will after recital.

June 10th: STUDENT APPRECIATION DAY!!!! 12pm-4pm, awards ceremony at 2pm! This day is so much fun and we hope you and your families can join us. The theme is ‘Pirates of OCPA’…so as you probably assumed, it is going to be pirate themed! We will have lots of arts and crafts, games, the bouncy house, activities like ‘walking the plank’ and treasure hunts, and lots of yummy food! There is no fee, just come and enjoy yourselves–you won’t regret it!  

June 12th, 13th, 14th, and 16th: RECITAL WEEK!!!! Attached to this email is the tech rehearsal schedule, as well as the show order for the evening shows. Tech rehearsals are in the late morning/early afternoon. This gives the performers the opportunity to come to the theater and review their dances on stage with lights before they perform on stage that night. They do not need their costumes for the morning tech rehearsals. Dancers leave the theatre and return at 5:00 for their call time ready to perform (costume and makeup). 

We also put out sheets in the lobby for parents that would like to volunteer at the shows. We need help with concessions, selling flowers, ushering, and backstage help. If you are interested in volunteering for these, please write your name on the sheet.  

Tech rehearsals and performances are at the Missoula Children’s Theatre 200 N Adams Street.  

The studio will be open 12pm-4pm in case you need last minute shoes or tights the week of recital.

Tickets are on sale at tututix.com. You will also be able to purchase them at the door the night of the show if you don’t get them online.

June 17th: OCPA COMPANY AUDITIONS!!! 2pm at On Center! If your child loves performing, if you want your kiddo involved in a positive, uplifting, team activity & if you want to expose your little love to new experiences including travel & education…DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!! OCPA Company performs at many local events including Griz games, we travel to workshops & competitions, and we represent On Center to the community. This year, we will rehearse on Fridays from 4pm-6pm with little to no weekend requirements. We will also be doing many fundraisers throughout the season to cover as many costs as possible!! If you have any questions regarding the audition or requirements, please don’t hesitate to ask!! There are flyers with more details located outside of the dance shop window. 

Also, if you are signed up for the automatic payments, then they will stop automatically after June. No need to come in and cancel anything!

This concludes the year! BUT-don’t forget to sign up for summer classes, summer camp, or our summer intensive so you can keep up with all you learned this year! Thank you all so much for everything you do! Please let us know if you have any confusion about anything! We are happy to help!

Hello wonderful On Center Families!

As you know, our year is coming to an end!  All the students have worked so hard for our recital next week and we want to be sure they get rewarded for that.  We hope to see you and your family at our Student Appreciation Day this Saturday, June 11th.  It will be here at On Center from 12:00pm-4:00pm.  The theme is a Luau, so feel free to come in your floweriest outfits!  We will have burgers, hot dogs, and lots of other yummy food and desserts!  Kids can play in the bouncy house, make crafts, do the limbo, and even take a hula class from our studio manager and instructor Josie!  We will be giving out awards at 2:00pm as well.  We hope to see you all there!!! Bring a lawn chair if you have one!

Also, RECITAL IS NEXT WEEK JUNE 13TH-17TH!!! Remember to look at your students tech schedules.This will take place in the afternoon on the day of their class at the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT). If they are in the Best of Show on Friday, be sure to look at the tech schedule for Friday as well. This time on stage gives all students the chance to be on stage and get used to the lights and spacing before they perform for everyone!! All shows Monday through Friday have a call time at 5:00pm for the dancers, and the show starts at 6:00pm.

Recital tickets will stop being sold online the night before the performance you want to purchase for.  For example, Monday’s tickets will stop being sold on Sunday night at 10:00pm, Tuesday’s tickets will stop being sold Monday night at 10:00pm etc. Any tickets you wish to purchase the day of, you can do so at the studio from 12:00pm-4:00pm, or at the doors of MCT at 5:00pm. Also, unfortunately, FRIDAYS SHOW IS SOLD OUT.You are more than welcome to come and wait in the lobby and if people leave, you may fill in their seats.  There are TV’s in the lobby playing video of the show. We are so sorry for this inconvenience.

DVD’s are available to purchase for recital.  Irish Luck Productions films every night, so you get to choose what night you purchase. They are $25 for one, and then $20 for any after that. You can purchase them in the dance shop.

Curtain Up! Company auditions are Saturday June 18th beginning at 2:00pm. Company is a very exciting, and fun opportunity for dancers to perform at various venues throughout the year! They perform at the mall for the Kid’s Fair, Thriller at Halloween, as well as a Christmas performance! They also perform in their own show once a year at MCT, and learn a lot about the stage and professional side of dancing. Dancers should bring a head shot and a resume of all dance/singing/acting experience they have (even if they just started last year, it’s just to give them the experience). Please ask us if you have any further questions about this wonderful opportunity! Below are some videos of girls that were on Company last year!
