  • Dance Gallery Productions (our competition program) will have their rehearsal on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 1:00 PM at the Orpheum Theater. We will NOT be running the competition numbers during the Upper School dress rehearsal.

Location: Orpheum Theater

Details: The Upper School dress rehearsal has been divided up into TWO dress rehearsals. Each rehearsal will begin with running the finale/bow first, we do this because once your child has rehearsed their dances on stage they will be free to leave with their parent or guardian (if your dancer is younger and does not drive). There is always a possibility of us finishing earlier as we have had that happen in the past, however, it only happens when the dancers are prompt and attentive during rehearsal.

Dress rehearsal will be in full costume and makeup. Click here to see the recital hair and makeup requirements for assistance in explaining what proper performance hair looks like for both boys and girls, along with what the proper makeup for both boys and girls looks like. Please use this as a reference; the only exception to these hair and makeup requirements would be if your child's teacher has specifically requested something different.
