Does my child need to attend the stage dress rehearsal?
All dancers in Kinderdance level and up that are performing in the show are needed at the stage dress rehearsal.

Dancers in pre-primary and primary levels will have their dress rehearsals in the studio during class time.

Please enter the auditorium and find a seat in the audience.  We will be calling one class at a time to come up to the stage.

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.

What should I wear to dress rehearsal?
Please arrive to dress rehearsal with full hair, makeup, and costume as if it were the day of the show.

Important Dancer Guidelines

  • Remove all nail polish, earrings, and other jewelry before arriving to the theater.
  • Have hair and make-up already done when you arrive to the theater. Unless otherwise specified, dancers should wear their uniform pink tights and have hair in a sleek (lots of hairspray) high bun.
  • In order to provide a secure environment dancers must be checked in by one guardian and checked out by that same guardian. All other friends and family should wait in the lobby. This extra precaution can cause delays, so please be patient. Our primary concern is the safety of our dancers. Students will be dismissed youngest to eldest in the following order of class levels: Pre-Primary, Primary, Kinderdance, Elementary, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3/4 & Teen.
