DFJ is proud to bring the story of Narnia to the stage this June!

We will be having 4 shows.  Narnian performances will occur on June 17th, 18th, 19th, & 20th - 6:30pm @ MBT. Tickets go on sale, May 1st.


Rehearsals:
Rehearsals happen during normal class times.  Please be aware that there will be a required dress rehearsal for all students at the MBT.  Dress rehearsals for those performing in the first show on Friday, June 17th will be the day before on Thursday June 16th.  All other performers will have their dress rehearsals earlier in the day in which they perform.   

Who performs when? 
The following classes perform in ONE of the 4 shows:
Tiny Twirlers
Creative Movement
Hippity Hop
Pre-Classes 
Level 1 and Level 2 classes 
All other classes will perform in either 2 shows, or in all 4 shows (a few exceptions may apply). 
Specific shows will be assigned for the classes, and this information will be available late February/ early March.  Please, let us know ASAP if your dancer has any conflicts (and the reason for the conflict) with performing on specific days.   We will do our best to accommodate requests, but do not guarantee that we can fulfill each request.  

IMPORTANT DETAILS REGARDING PERFORMANCE FEES: 
*Performing in the show is an additional cost, and you will be charged a Performance Fee on February 1st.

What does the Performance Fee Cover? 
1.  A costume chosen by DFJ staff (that you get to keep),  Props (if applicable)  
2.  Dress rehearsals outside of class time, prior to the show conducted by DFJ staff.   
3.  Associated Costs: Administrative costs, ordering, shipping/handling, restocking fees, exchange fees on orders, and non-returnables.
4. And the 8.8% sales tax on each costume

Fees:
Tiny Twirlers, Creative Movement, Hippity Hop, Pre-Classes, Level 1 & 2 classes - $60/class
  ($55.15 plus $4.85 sales tax)
All Other Classes - $84.99/class ($78.12 plus $6.87 sales tax)

Due to disturbances in the distribution chains, performance fees will be DUE February 1st this year (instead of March 1st), as we need to order costumes earlier to assure they will arrive on time.  

How do I pay my fee(s)? 
Performance fees will automatically be applied to all performing student's accounts by February 1st and will be due with February tuition. A $5 late fee will be applied if the fee is not paid by the 10th of February.  PLEASE NOTE: Payment for performance fees will be processed to your card on file on February 1st.

Do I have to perform in the show?
Performing is optional, but highly encouraged!  After February, a significant amount of class time is devoted to choreography.  You must notify the Dancing for Joy office by January 20th if you do NOT want your student to perform. If we do not hear from you before this date, it will be assumed that your dancer IS performing in the Spring Show and their costume(s) will be ordered.

What do I do next?
- Let Dancing for Joy know by January 20th only if your student will NOT perform.
- Let Dancing for Joy know if your student has a specific performance conflict (date & reason). 
If you wish to pay your performance fee(s) in a different way than your card on file, you must let us know BEFORE February 1st.  Otherwise payment will be run with your tuition, using card on file, on February 1st.

What are the Covid protocols for the show?
In accordance with the current WA state health department mandates and Mount Baker Theatre policies:  Students will need to either provide proof of vaccination, a negative covid test or sign up for a *rapid covid test with us, in order to perform and then they will also be able to perform without a **mask.  Wearing a mask on stage will also be permitted if a student wants to wear a mask while they perform. 

*For a fee of $20, DFJ will provide a rapid test for those who wish to have a rapid test on site.  The rapid test results are good for 72 hours.  We will have volunteer doctors/nurses to oversee testing on site at MBT  before dress rehearsals. 
**When not on stage dancers will wear a mask at all times.  

Audience members will need to show either proof of vaccination or proof of a negative covid test within 72 hours to attend the show.   Backstage parent volunteers- DFJ is permitted to administer rapid tests, and then also provide those results for volunteers to be an audience member (Cost is $20 per test).  At this time, we will not be able to administer rapid tests to all audience members.  All audience members will also be required to wear masks at all times.
