A Dancer's Reflection

Dress Rehearsal Notes:

Arrival

The rehearsal will start promptly at 4:30. Please begin arriving around 4:00 to give yourself time to get checked in, get dressed in your first costume, and be seated in the auditorium. Enter the auditorium lobby and find the sign-in area for your group.  All students must sign in so that we know you are here!  Parents of students in the Intermediate Levels, Boy’s Groove, Tap 4, & Tap 5 should accompany their student to the sign in area.  You will sign your student in and provide a phone number to reach you in case of emergency or to call if your child is finished rehearsing and needs picked up.

Parents:  you do not need to stay for dress rehearsal.  We have parent volunteers who will be looking after your child.

Costumes

Everyone must wear their costumes!  This is a DRESS rehearsal and we are setting the lights which are determined by your costumes.  This means correct color of tights, undergarments, and shoes too!  You do not need to have make-up on but your hair must be pulled up and secured to your head.

Keep everything together in a garment bag, tote, laundry basket, etc.  Mark everything with your name if possible.  

You will put on the costume corresponding to your first dance in the show.  A show order will be posted in the sign-in area.

Where to Go

After you have signed in and are in your first costume, go into the auditorium and sit close to the sign marked with your group number. This will be where you will spend the rehearsal when you are not on stage. You will not be in dressing rooms for rehearsal. If you need to change costumes, you may go to the restroom but come right back to your area.  

What to Do

At 4:30, Becky will have some general instructions for everyone and then the rehearsal will begin.   We will begin by rehearsing our "Finale” that includes All students.  That will be followed by "Opening Number" rehearsal.  After we have finished practicing the opening number and the finale, we will run the dances in show order.   Students in the Intermediate Levels, Tap 4, Tap 5, and Boy’s Groove will have a parent helper assigned to their groups.  This helper will let you know when to go backstage, etc. Please listen to them and follow their instructions.  Sit quietly and watch the other classes perform!!  This is your only chance to watch the show because you will be in dressing rooms on the show nights.

Departure

After you have rehearsed your last dance, you are allowed to leave. Students in the Intermediate Levels, Boys Groove, Tap 4, & Tap 5 must be signed out by a parent.  

Parents of these students:  Please do not leave with your child without signing them out with their assigned helper.

Be sure you have collected all of your costumes and other belongings.
