A: Yes - 6 per SHOWTIME Q: When will my wristband order be ready for pickup? A: At DRESS REHEARSAL - please bring your order confirmation with you. Q: Can wristbands be returned or exchanged?

Q: Do I need to purchase admission for my dancer? A: No, they are the performers! Q: Is there assigned seating? A: No, seating is first come, first served. There will be no reserved seating prior to any show. Q: My child is in the morning recital showtimes of 10am & 11:30am. Are both of these showtimes IDENTICAL shows? A: Yes! Your child will get to show off their hard work twice! Q: Do I have to purchase wristbands to BOTH of my child’s recital showtimes? Ex: Morning Recital is at 10am and 11:30am. A: If you are planning to sit in the audience for each showtime, yes. Wristbands will be specific for EACH showtime and you will only be allowed in if you have that specific wristband. Q: Can I be in the dressing room for one of my child’s showtimes? A: Yes, female family members are permitted in the dressing room. No wristband would be needed for this showtime if you’re staying in the dressing room the whole time. Ex: I’m planning to watch the 10am show so I would purchase a band for that showtime but I am going to stay in the dressing room for the 11:30am show, so I do not need a band for that one. This also frees up a seat for another family member to attend and watch the recital. Q: I have children dancing in more than 1 “recital” ex: Afternoon & Evening Recitals. Do I have to purchase wristbands for each? A: Wristbands must be purchased for any showtime you are planning to be in the audience, however we will be sending you additional details about this. Please look for that in your emails very soon! Q: Should I purchase wristbands for my extended family/friends? A: Yes, they will NOT be able to come to the studio to pick them up, so you should order all the wristbands you need, pick them up at dress rehearsal and distribute them to your attendees. Q: Do I have to attend dress rehearsal? A: YES! It is VERY important to be at dress rehearsal. Q: Do I have to wear makeup? A: Yes! The stage lights totally wash out the dancers, so they need to wear makeup to help enhance and bring out their natural features. See the Hair and Makeup section in your recital handbook for more details. If you have any concerns about your child wearing makeup, feel free to reach out to us - illuminationdancede@gmail.com. Q: When do I get my Recital/Finale Shirt? A: At dress rehearsal or in class if they are available sooner. Parents: Please locate FULL recital related details in your Recital Handbooks!
