Dress rehearsal is very important for all dancers because it gives them a chance to practice on the big stage with the lights and in their costume. It is especially important for the smallest dancers so they become familiar with the stage and dressing room and know what will be expected for the big show!!! Please see dress rehearsal schedule.Each class will be given 5 minutes on the stage. Dancers need to be in full costume/hair and makeup. This gives parents a chance to practice the hair and makeup as well.Please show up at least 10 min before your dancer needs to be on stage for dress rehearsal and sit in the auditorium. Show up in your first costume for the night and bring all others costumes and hair pieces/shoes. Please put your dancers name on everything, especially shoes!!!Stage Makeup is highly recommended and includes blush, black eyeliner, black mascara, neutral eye shadow- such as light brown colors,and red lipstick.For our littlest dancers, age 2-4- blush and colored lip gloss is fine. Hairstyle for every class is listed on the information sheets and will be required for dress rehearsal and the show.
