PART 3 2:00-4:00
PART 4 4:00-6:00
To determine which "Part" you are in please take a look at our schedule below.
This rehearsal is held at the studio
NO recital costume, make up, or hair are needed for studio rehearsal. Just their dance shoes.
Dancers must stay for the entire Part they are scheduled for - as they will be learning finale, running everything in order, and then potentially re-running certain routines at the end.
This opportunity allows the students to watch each others dances, set entrances and exit, along with special lighting and effect cues.
There will be a BBQ held outside from approx. 12:00-3:00pm so don't forget to bring some cash!
It is also a good idea to bring lawn chairs if it is sunny, as the lobby gets very busy this day.
Teacher cards and gift donation cash boxes will be set up in the lobby as well. This will be the only day for you to sign or donate money.
