here's how to prepare
for the highlight of the year!
Whether it's your first recital, or you're a true showtime veteran, this guide will help you prepare and perform at your very best for our highly anticipated return to the big stage!
We have two huge recitals on the way, one in each island in the Federation, representing LEAP St. Kitts
and LEAP Nevis. (LEAP St. Kitts' recital spans over two evenings - Saturday & Sunday.)
As always, we enjoy and appreciate when our LEAP Family comes together with keen attention, cooperation, teamwork, high energy and support to ensure the recital organization process is smooth, seamless and successful.
Please be sure to read through the following pointers carefully and in full:
LEAP ST. KITTS RECITAL - This event is scheduled for the evenings of Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th May, 2023.
LEAP NEVIS RECITAL - This event is scheduled for the evening of Sunday 11th June, 2023.
Details about event times, venues, tickets and themes will be shared and promoted closer to these dates.
You’re probably tired of reading and hearing this but yes, we’re saying it again. Please ensure your children are present and punctual at all classes as we lead up to recital. Detailed choreography is underway and absence & tardiness can greatly affect individual and team progress.
Please also ensure all of your monthly tuition payments are up to date. Delinquent members will not be allowed to participate in recitals.
GRAND REHEARSALS - This is a critical occasion, when our performers get to practice in costume on the real stage space just before their shows. These will be scheduled for the week prior to the shows listed, so please keep this period as clear as possible on your personal schedules. Exact days and times for each team to attend their grand rehearsal will be shared closer to showtime.
DANCEWEAR REQUIREMENTS - Please ensure you have all your dancewear which is usually worn as uniforms for weekly classes. Leotards, tights and dance shoes are usually required as bases and accents for costumes selected and provided by us. Dancers and gymnasts will be not allowed to perform if they are not properly dressed. A detailed guide on the exact dancewear requirements per performance will be shared in a formal notice closer to showtime.
TICKETS - Tickets to each show will be made available privately to the LEAP community of students and parents in mid April for LEAP St. Kitts and early May for LEAP Nevis. We will alert everyone via our LEAP WhatsApp Groups privately on when exactly tickets become available at our Studios. The private sale of tickets will last for two weeks, after which we will begin advertising ticket availability to the public. Please note that we do not handle ticket reservations, so please organize in advance to secure the tickets you need during the private sale.
Ticket prices will remain the same as last year:
LEAP St. Kitts - EC$40 each // LEAP Nevis - EC$30 each
RECITAL FEE - As you can imagine, staging large events incur very large expenses. LEAP applies its own resources, but relies heavily on the support of corporate sponsors and its members to help put these very large, professional showcases on. This year's recital fee per student remains the same as last year at EC$100. This contribution is specifically applied to the cost of each member's dazzling costumes and accessories, as well as their souvenir recital t-shirt which will be worn by all members for each show's grand finale and group photos. Please note that members who are a part of more than one class/team at LEAP are only required to pay the recital fee once. The deadlines for payment of the recital fee is Saturday 29th April, 2023 for LEAP St. Kitts and Saturday 13th May, 2023 for LEAP Nevis. Payments can be made using cash or cheques during Studio sessions, or online using any of the account transfer information provided on www.leapskn.com/tuition. A physical (paper) receipt will be issued to you upon payment.
We look forward to sharing more and more details with you, our friends, families and fans, as we work our way to showtime! In the meantime, do feel free to reach out to us directly, should you have any questions about the recital preparation process.
