Okay, so here is the all important blog post.
Weekly classes are all as regularly scheduled at the studio this week.
FRIDAY is dress rehearsal at the Charles Bailey Theatre. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your time to be ready and dresses for stage. (makeup is not required for dress rehearsal but all costumes and accessories please)
We have access to the theatre at 3:30 and will start our run through at 4:00. We have the theatre until 7:30 this time so no rush is needed, and I can run each class a few times to feel secure on stage.
show order is below to give you a guideline - (i have put a suggested timeline as well for rehearsal so you are not needing to stay for the entire run though, but it is invited if you'd like to watch ... its great for the dancers to watch each other!)
For SATURDAY -
There is a volunteer sheet sign up that I haven't had entirely fill up, I'll link it here incase anyone else is available to volunteer.
7 years old and older please arrive at the theatre for makeup at 4:30
under 7 please come for 5:30
showtime is 6:30
Students are encouraged to please stay backstage for the duration of the show. With us being a young studio it is understandable if some of the dancers really need to out sitting with you (reminder from the theatre management, these students do not have an assigned seat and must be on your lap)
I have hired supervision and activities for backstage and the less traffic into the theatre the less distraction for the dancers on stage.
For mom's who are sneaking back to help with costume changes, please do not use the door adjacent to the stage, this goes for rehearsal as well.
Also, this will be such a great show this year, the students are so excited and please enjoy the buildup to the show this week. That said a few classes could still be working on memorization. It would be GREATLY beneficial for the students to be watching their practice videos and going mentally over their dances so we are prepared for the stage.
After the show we will not have classes at the studio but we will be having a big fun "wrap party" June 22nd so mark that on your calendars.
Break a leg everyone
