May/June 2019


We are all very excited about our upcoming recitals Friday June 14 & Saturday June 15 at the Auditorium Theater. Our students are proud of all they have achieved this year and are anxious to show off what they have learned.

Below are some brief pointers to make rehearsal and recital go smoothly:

Rehearsal:

- Be on time to rehearsal. Do not bring or wear costume to rehearsal. This is a space rehearsal only. Students & parents will tour changing room areas and receive a brief explanation of procedures at this time.

- For rehearsal, park in the theater's main lot off College St. behind the theater. No charge for parking at rehearsal. There will be a charge for parking on recital day/night.

- Enter building through stage door marked “cast/crew only”. MAIN ENTRANCE is LOCKED during rehearsals.

- Sign up for fall classes at rehearsal and get $5.00 off the registration fee.

Recital:

- Arrive ½ hour before recital start time, dressed and ready.

- For recital, park only in lots with parking attendants. Do not park in private lots without attendants. Your car may be towed.

- One parent, with dancer/s, may enter through stage door at recital. All others in your party should enter through main doors.

- Please give us advance notice of anyone in your party needing wheelchair assistance and we will seat them before all others.

- Please, no saving seats.

- Enjoy the show and be sure to stay until the grand finale. At that time, dancers go onstage, in costume, with

their class, for one final bow and to receive their trophy.
