Good Morning Dancers and Families-

We have an exciting afternoon planned for today’s rehearsal. Please arrive in enough time to be ready to start at 1 p.m. , this really means that at 1 p.m. dancers are in the rehearsal room, dressed appropriately, focused, and stretching in anticipation of warm up by an instructor. Warm up will be held for 30 minutes.

At 1:30 p.m. please find the position where we finished last rehearsal. Hint: Tarantella dance had been worked through. We will start at this point and work through the end of the show in dance attire.

After a short break, a full dress rehearsal will be performed, without makeup. There will be dressers to assist with quick changes, and to determine other cast parts that will require assistance during the upcoming dress rehearsals and shows. All dancers are responsible for checking to make sure that their props and all pieces of their costumes are set up.

Parents of cast members – please do not drop your dancer off without ensuring that their hair is styled appropriately, they brought their shoes and tights, and they have extra bobby pins and safety pins in their bag. Today is the final day to preorder flowers, please stop by to see Heather Mazzucco with your order.

Jan will be at rehearsal to take the last few head shots – please see her prior to warm up, or during a break if you have not had your photograph taken.

Peasants: black ribbons will not be worn with the black ballet shoes.

We have some amazing talent from which our dancers should be learning from and taking advantage of the opportunity to be coached by, work along side with, and study their techniques and finesses. Quiet is expected amongst the dancers and families in the rehearsal room and hallway, please be respectful. If certain dancers or groups are disruptive, parents will be asked to remain and sit with their dancer.

Cappuccino, sugar, red and blue dye will be provided to any dancers after 5 p.m., and the dancer can be picked up at my home.
