Dress Rehearsal

IMG_3533.JPG

It's Dress Rehearsal! Our chance to practice before the big show. Dress rehearsal, like for a play, is our chance to run through the show before we get an audience. Students get a chance to practice their dances in their costume, practice their costume changes if they have them, and especially important for our young and new students, they get to see the stage and backstage before the day of the show! We find this really helps with nerves on recital day.

Important Notes for Dress Rehearsal: 
 

  • Arrive in costume 10 minutes before your scheduled time. If student is in more than one dance, arrive in first costume and bring remainder of costumes with you. 

  • Report to CENTRAL CHECK-IN in the Main Lobby immediately upon arrival. Students will be taken with their group back stage and parents can proceed to the auditorium to watch.

  • When students have finished dancing, they will remain in the downstairs dressing room area until parents arrive to pick them up. 

  • All accounts must be paid before Dress Rehearsal. Students with a balance owing will not be permitted to participate in the recital or dress rehearsal.
