-If your dancer is scheduled in the Friday evening show, their dress rehearsal will be on Friday morning/afternoon. If your dancer is scheduled in the Saturday evening show, their dress rehearsal will be on Saturday morning/afternoon. Please note* dress rehearsal will NOT be in the same order as the actual show(s)

-Every effort is made to keep Dress Rehearsal on schedule. We appreciate your patience if we should encounter any unexpected delays. 

-It’s extremely important that every dancer shows up on time and is prepared to dance. This is just like a run of the show. FULL SHOW HAIR AND STAGE MAKEUP, ALL COSTUMES, SHOES AND ACCESSORIES ARE REQUIRED! 

-Please enter through the side gate of amphitheater at least 15-20 minutes BEFORE scheduled rehearsal time and sit in designated areas in audience. Dancers will be called BY CLASS to side stage ramp when it nears their rehearsal time. Please plan ahead and arrive early for parking.

-The instructor will call the group up by class when their rehearsal time on stage is ready.  
 
-ABSOLUTELY NO UNDERWEAR IS TO BE WORN UNDER ANY COSTUME. If your dancer has a hard time understanding this concept, you can compare it to wearing a swimsuit. You don’t wear underwear with a swimsuit do you? ;) Tights are required for all dancers and a nude leotard will also be required for older dancers with multiple costume changes.

-For little ones, make up is optional. Since the stage lights tend to wash out their small faces and features, blush and lip stick is acceptable IF YOU CHOOSE! PLEASE DO NOT PUT MAKE UP WITH GLITTER ON YOUR DANCER!!! 














-The venue charges a $10 parking fee

-Parent Volunteers: If you would like to sign up to help out backstage, please come into the office to sign up. We would like at least one volunteer for each class

-Call time for all dancers to arrive is 1 hour ahead of scheduled show(s). 

-Please have your dancer arrive with hair & make up complete, first costume on, and small bag with shoes and accessories. 

-Make sure ALL costume and pieces are labeled with dancers name

-No outside food or drinks allowed backstage or in amphitheater. Water okay. A Concessions stand will be open for your convenience.

-Please do not send any markers or game devices backstage. We will not be responsible for lost items. We will provide activities to entertain dancers as they wait for their turn on stage. 

-There will not be any professional videography this year. We will have an area where you may stand to video yourself off to the side. PLEASE if you video from your seat, be mindful of other families around you. Do not hold camera/phone over your head and block someone's view. 

-Follow signs around to back courtyard area for dancer drop off. Please send ONE parent for pick up in same location AFTER the show is complete. FOR THE DANCERS SAFETY, THERE WILL NOT BE IN AND OUT PRIVILEGES FROM BACKSTAGE DURING THE SHOW OR DURING INTERMISSION. In addition, dancers will not be released from the front of the stage at any time. 

-Please pickup your dancer promptly after each show. Backstage will be closed between dress rehearsals and shows.  

-Please tell all family and friends in attendance that there will be NO flash photography allowed. This is very distracting to dancers onstage (especially the little ones) as well as other audience members sitting around you who may be trying to watch their star on stage as well. This is a safety matter we will take very seriously. Anyone found infraction of this request would be kindly asked to leave.

-If for any reason you need to exit the amphitheater, please do so IN BETWEEN routines only. 
 
-NO PARENTS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE DRESSING AREA OR BACKSTAGE unless they are signed up as backstage volunteer. Volunteers must remain backstage for the entire show. Volunteers will receive a separate email with instructions.
