Dress rehearsal will happen in the studio on your dancers regularly scheduled dance day.
Parents, family and friends are invited and encouraged to come get a sneak peek at what we've been working so hard on all year. It's an opportunity to give the kids the feeling of having an audience and also a great time to take pictures and videos (which are not allowed during the recital)!
Due to combination classes or back-to-back class times, the dress rehearsal schedule may change regular timing a little bit. Here is the Dress Rehearsal Schedule. Please be sure to read carefully!
Dancers will come to dress rehearsal in their costumes, with correct tights, hair and shoes for each class they are in. Light make-up is encouraged and please, NO jewelry.
