There's so much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about the upcoming recital. Please note that all of the information and forms below will be given out with May's newsletter during the first week of May.
June 3rd - 6th Students will have a dress rehearsal at the studio during their regular class time. Students should wear regular dance clothes to class and bring their costume along. We will warm-up first and then change into the costumes. Please be sure to have the correct tights by this day. If you are unsure what color tights they need please ask or check the costume book. Details on hair and accessories can also be found in the there. Please click this link to view the costume book. All dancers must have tights sold in the studio. This is also the last week of class.
Please note that the dress rehearsal is not the same order as the recital. Please be ready to perform at the time(s) listed on the schedule. Please bring your costume, tights, shoes, and accessories. When you enter the auditorium lobby you will see signs to your child’s dressing room. After you get your child dressed in their costume go into the auditorium and sit in the seats marked with the name of their dance. The OAC has asked dancers to wear a cover-up over their costume while in the auditorium so they don’t get glitter and sequins on the carpet and chairs. Someone from my staff will then come and get the class when it’s their time to perform. Right after they dance they will get their group picture taken backstage and then will be brought back to you in the auditorium. We will practice the finale’ at 5:00, 6:30, and 8:00pm. Your child may practice the finale’ at the time most convenient for you. After your child has rehearsed their dance and the finale’ you are free to leave.
#1 - Thursday, June 13th 6:00 PM

#3 - Saturday, June 15th 2:00PM
