Recital weekend was this past weekend for my studio and it was exciting, exhausting and most importantly is OVER! I can now join the “Done” Club for Studio Owners who are done with their show! Hooray!
We crammed five shows into three days and it was great, but I’m glad to be done. Here’s a peek into the weekend, and my entry for May’s “Performance Pic” Challenge.
This year we rented a local school for our shows. The auditorium holds about 1000 people. We got in around 2pm on Friday to set-up the stage and theater for the 6pm show.
I let the students sit in the auditorium – I feel like they enjoy watching the show. I have alumni students who volunteer as aisle monitors. They are responsible for two to three classes and oversee them in their seats and making sure they are brought backstage on time. The teachers also patrol the seats, and help with their rowdiest classes.
