Performance FAQs

Does my child need to attend dress rehearsal?
 All dancers that are performing in the show are needed at the dress rehearsal. It gives our dancers a chance to become familiar with the stage and practice the dance in front of an audience.
Do we need to stay for the whole dress rehearsal?
You may leave once you or your child has rehearsed each dance in which they are performing.


Do we need to stay for the whole show?
We ask that you please stay for the entire duration of the show as a sign of respect for the dancers on stage.


How long is the show?
Approximately 1 hour.


Should I bring my child into the audience after they have completed their dance?
We ask that all parents remain in their seats during the show. Children may be picked up from the dressing rooms at the end of the show.


Do the performers need a ticket if they want to watch the show?

The performers do not need a ticket, as they will be in the dressing rooms/back stage.



What should I bring backstage?
It is highly recommended that dancers bring a caboodle or pouch for your accessories. For dancers age 8+ Please bring hairspray, extra hair ties & bobby pins, and all makeup needed for the show. Food is not permitted in the dressing rooms, but water bottles are highly encouraged.


How do I protect my things backstage?
It is highly recommended that you write your name on things (on the inside of your dance shoes and on the tag of costumes/clothes).
How do I pancake pointe shoes?

Apply pan-cake to pointe shoes (foundation in a color slightly lighter than your skin tone). Please see the “how to” article here:
