|RECITAL – Saturday June 8th 1pm & 7pm & Sunday June 9th 1pm
DRESS REHEARSAL – Thurs. June 6th
Dress rehearsal will be on THURSDAY JUNE 6. ECE classes will rehearse at 5:15, Act I starts 6:00, Act II starts 7:00. Please make sure you are at
SOUTHERN LEHIGH MIDDLE SCHOOL, and ready to dance by your designated times. You can find the rehearsal schedule online or on our bulletin
boards in the studio Beg of May. During rehearsal the children ONLY will be allowed in the auditorium. They will be assigned seats according to the
dances, this is so that the children are not running around and we have to waste rehearsal time gathering classes together. Parents will be allowed
into the back of the auditorium during their child’s performance to videotape and watch. After your child is done dancing, you must leave the
auditorium for the next group of parents to watch. Please leave family and friends at home; this is not a performance, only rehearsal FOR THE
CHILDREN so they are familiar with the stage, lighting and directions.
* Classes/solo/duo/trios will dance in two out of three of the shows (competition/graduates will dance in all three)
* Please be at the school 1/2hr before performance time.
* NO COSTUMES ARE ALLOWED IN THE AUDITORIUM or anywhere out of the 'backstage area'. Please cover up when in public.
* Doors to the auditorium will only be opened BETWEEN NUMBERS please inform family and friends of this rule. It is very distracting to the dancers on
stage when the doors are opened and bright light shines through. It is also distracting to have people getting up and down between numbers. You
would not want your child distracted or you to miss part of your child's dance because of someone in front of you taking a seat, so please extend the
courtesy to others. Please do not go backstage unless it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Our ushers will not open doors unless it is between a number.
* ABSOLUTELY NO VIDEOTAPING IS PERMITTED DURING RECITAL. You will be asked to leave the auditorium. This is not only a distraction, but for
safety purposes for the children. We offer professional videotapes for your convenience. This has ALWAYS been our policy.
* Please only 1 parent in the backstage area when you pick up your child. We have too many students for friends and family to be walking around in
the backstage area. We like to keep our rehearsal and recital as professional and orderly as possible. Please make sure you clean up after yourself in
the dressing room when the recital is finished. This is greatly appreciated by the school.
*If you have any questions or concerns during Dress Rehearsal/Recital, please see one of our backstage staff (not Miss Holly)
* No Black or colored bra straps or underwear under costumes (nude only!) This also includes DRESS REHEARSAL!
If you have ANY questions at all, you can email Miss Holly at firstname.lastname@example.org this may seem confusing for first time parents and
students, but everything runs pretty simple. Recital time is a fun and exciting time for everyone. This is your child's time to be a STAR!!!!!
