Platinum introduces their 2021 Recital…The Show Must Go On! Read below for important details.
Recital Week for Edina and Wayzata: May 3 – 8, 2021
Location: Bloomington Jefferson High School
This season, we will be hosting multiple recitals & each class is assigned to a specific show. Multiple shows allows us to keep our show lengths to a minimum and offer each family tickets to the show at a safe capacity. We do our best to create show assignments that benefit dancers taking multiple classes or with siblings, however, with many smaller shows, dancers/families will most likely be assigned to different shows, and your dancer may be assigned to 3+ mini shows.
LOCATION (for both Edina and Wayzata studios)
Bloomington Jefferson High School
4001 W 102nd Street, Bloomington, MN 55437 (map)
Jefferson high school has a very large auditorium, one of the largest high schools in the metro area with seating for over 1,000. There is also no balcony, so there isn’t a bad seat in the house! With this large of an auditorium, we are able to distance our audience into smaller “family pods” spaced out. On top of having less dancers per show, the tickets per family will be limited (up to 6-8 tickets max per family), so that there is no congestion in the venue during each show.
PARKING: Throughout the weekend, there may be multiple school events going on in different parts of the building, therefore parking can be limited. Overflow parking is available a few blocks west of the school at Olsen Middle School or in the neighborhood streets.
Recital Souvenirs will not be available for purchase at the show. You may pre-order your recital souvenirs here today and pick them up the day of the show for your dancer!
In typical years, all studios sell tickets to their recital to cover the cost of the venue and other expenses that come with producing a top-notch experience for children and their families.
What is different in 2021? In order to facilitate a show in a theater without knowing our audience capacity or ability to sell tickets, we will be charging a performance fee per dancer. The performance fee will be charged to your account on May 1. Depending on the state & venue capacity limits for indoor entertainment, we will be offering family “pods” to watch from the audience. The performance fee will also cover a digital download of the show that will be given to each dancer to share with family members who cannot be present!
More details on the performance fee & audience capacity coming soon!
We will not be needing volunteers for our 2021 recital – we look forward to working with you all again in the future!
Picture week is required for all dancers, even if you do not plan on purchasing photos. This is a chance for us to professionally photograph each dancer in costume prior to the recital. We will be photoshopping all individual pictures together to create class photos, so al photos will be taken individually in a safe environment.
Pictures are held during your usual class day at Platinum (times may vary from your usual class time). A parent/guardian is required to attend picture week, as no classes are held this week. One parent per dancer of all ages should attend.
What to expect on picture day?
> Dancers will arrive fully ready to go in costume with ONE parent.
> Read our Recital Look Handout for tips on hair & make-up!

> Dancers will be called into the picture room (Studio 5), take their individual picture and are free to go.
