Please send each dancer with their ENTIRE costume both for both the dress rehearsal and the show. Please refer to the Showcase Quick Look sent home with your dancer and emailed to you to make sure you have everything. Due to a lack of time, we will not be able to dress your dancer.

Pre I through 7 & 8 II: Arrive at the theater in the main part of your costume with a cover-up. Wear FOOTED BALLET PINK MATTE TIGHTS (NOT SHINY) for both ballet and tap routines.

Beg. & Up: Bring your costume(s) separately (wear a leotard with your tights and we will show your where to change into your costume upon arrival). BALLET classes wear FOOTED BALLET PINK MATTE TIGHTS (NOT SHINY). For Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, and Lyrical classes, please refer to your Showcase Quick Look.

This is the time for our dancers to get a feel for the stage without an audience. We have a very good group of people working with us backstage. All dancers will be supervised throughout the entire evening for both dress rehearsal and the show. Each dancer will be met at the stage door upon entering the theater and we will personally show them to their assigned dressing rooms. A parent must initial the drop off and pick up sheet at both dress rehearsal and the show for ages 3 – beginning  levels.
No dancer ages 3 – beginning levels will be released to anyone other than a parent unless permission is given in writing in advance.

ALL PERSONAL ITEMS SHOULD BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH THE DANCER’S ENTIRE NAME IN CASE OF LOST ITEMS.  All costumes, shoes, and accessories should be placed in a dance bag labeled with the dancer’s name. The dance bag should be labeled also!  If your name is not on your belongings and they are lost, we cannot help you. This includes tights!
