***ALL ADS ARE DUE ON MARCH 4TH AND 5TH in Studio C. ADS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BEFORE THESE DATES. ADs turned in after these dates will not be in consideration for one of the four covers (see "Ad Honors")***
We do encourage that all of our students pictures are in the recital book, but it is optional this year to sell ads. Please realize that in order to have their picture appear in the recital book, students must sell at least $75 in ads. Starting in 2021, selling at least $75 in ads will be mandatory
All Ads must be turned in in a digital format. This mean it must be on a USB or CD. Last Year's recital program is in the lobby if you would like to look through the ads from previous years to get an idea on what they should look like. All ads will be black and white in the recital book. Ads can be created in one of two ways:
1. YOU can create your own ad
If you choose to create it yourself, each ad must be the correct measurements (scroll down to "ad Pricing and Sizes" for these measurements) and be saved as a picture file (PDF, JPEG, ETc.), even if the ad is only text. This ensures that it will look the way that you intend it to when we add it to the book. **Please double check spelling. The way it appears on the USB is the way it will appear in the book**. All ads must be saved to either a USB or a CD. Please label the files with the students first and last name as well as what size the ad is. For example: JaneSmithFull1.pdf; JaneSmithFull2.pdf; JaneSmithHalf1.pdf
2. WE can create the ad for you
If you Choose for us to create the ad, it will still need to be turned in on either a usb or cd. For example, if you want your ad to be words only, please save it into a word document. Please be specific when naming the file (ex: 1/4 page ad from Mom). If you have an ad that you would like text and pictures on, please be specific when labeling the picture files so we know which picture goes to which ad.
SPLIT ADS: Split ads are when an ad is shared between two or more students (ex: Cousins, Class ads, best friends). All splits ads must be separate from other ads and on a separate digital device. Full payment for the split ads must be turned in by the person who is turning in the USB or CD containing the split ad.
***WRITTEN ADS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. ALL ADS MUST BE DIGITAL***
Every year in June, we put on our yearly recital. Our 2020 recital is on June 3rd at 6 pm! Our recital program is like a yearbook. Our dancers take headshot pictures and are able to sell ads that are printed in the book. Instructions about ads can be found below.
