Costumes

Dancers should arrive at both Dress Rehearsal/Photo Shoot and the performances ready to put on costumes with proper underpinnings, hair and light make-up done. Please give our costumes the respect and care of your own clothing– staff and volunteers have put hundreds of hours into our wardrobe and we would very much appreciate your help to keep them clean and well maintained.

Please have your child’s full name written on all dancewear. Items tend to disappear very easily come show time.

Please Note: There is a $50 charge for lost costumes.

Dress Rehearsal - Friday Evening & Saturday Morning

Arrival

Please proceed through the main doors into the Cohn Auditorium (Friday) or the side auditorium doors (Saturday morning) at the listed time(pg3) to seat in assigned seats. Note: the rehearsal is not in show order. Dancers should be ready to put on costumes with hair and light make-up already done. Classes will be seated in their assigned seats with a volunteer supervisor. Children must have all of their belongings in a bag and with them at all times after being dropped off.

Rehearsal Procedure

Class supervisors will remain with the students at all times. At the appropriate time, a designated staff member will lead the students to Studio 2 where they will find and put on their costumes. When ready, a designated volunteer will lead the classes to the Sculpture Court to have photos taken. After photos, a volunteer will lead the classes backstage to their dressing rooms before rehearsing. After rehearsing on stage, the students will leave their costumes in the dressing rooms and proceed to their auditorium seats for pick-up or to wait for their next dance. When in the auditorium, it is important that the students remain in their assigned seats with their class supervisor to maintain organization.

In more Than one dance?

After rehearsing their first dance, dancers will change out of their first costume backstage and meet their next class in their assigned Cohn seats.

Performances 2pm & 7pm

Arrival

Dancers must arrive in proper underpinnings, full make-up, and hair, no jewelry, ready to go on stage 30 minutes before the show start time.
