Recitals and Performances

Recital, showcase, exhibition, whatever name you use, Jackrabbit's Recital Management feature can help you streamline the planning and execution of your program!

  • Use an easy drag/drop functionality to order performances.
  • Assign music to each performance.
  • Manage gaps between performances to ensure time for costume changes.
  • Create programs, cue sheets, and check in/out sheets.

The feature (module) name defaults to Recitals; however, if you would like to change it to another name, go to the Gear icon > Settings >  General > Organization Defaults (left menu) > Recital Module Settings and enter the preferred name. The name you enter will be reflected throughout Jackrabbit.

Follow these steps to set up, plan, and manage your recital. 

Step 1 - Create a New Recital

Go to the Events menu > Recitals and click the Create New Recitals button. Enter the New Recitals Name and Date, and click Save.

Once the recital is created, click on the Recital Name to open the Recitals Editor and move to the next step.

Step 5 - Manage Your Recital

Use Jackrabbit reports to manage your recital and the participants:

  • Print Detail provides a listing of performances, songs, length, etc., as well as the students in each performance. 
  • Create Recital Programs by exporting your recital details to Word. You can also export student details to Excel and use the file to sort, filter, and import into a mail merge program to email families. 
  • Use the Recital Check In/Out Sheet to keep track of students' arrivals and departures.
  • Click Print Family Detail to summarize all the performances each student is participating in, grouped by family.
  • Use the Multi-Recitals Family Detail report on the Recital Listings page to provide you with a list of families who have different performance/recital dates. This helps parents keep track of their children's recital schedules.
  • Display recital participation in the Student record, Class record, Enrollment Detail report, and the Attendance page of the Staff Portal to allow you to quickly and easily see whether or not students are participating in recitals. Email directly from the Enrollment Detail report based on recital participation.
  • Our exclusive partnership with TutuTix makes it easy to order professional-style tickets for your recital.

The Recital feature is defaulted 'on' for users of the Dance, Music, and Class editions of Jackrabbit. Swim and Cheer Users can contact Jackrabbit Support to add the Recital feature.
