Dress Rehearsal FAQs

Dress Rehearsal allows for each dancer to practice their choreography in costume, on stage with lights, in full hair and makeup. The teacher will space the routine, walk through exits and entrances and answer any pertinent questions your dancer might have.

YES! Dress rehearsal is required for all dancers participating in recital. If a dancer is not present for Dress Rehearsal teachers will have to re-space their formations for the sake of the class as a whole. This means students who are absent from Dress Rehearsal will not be allowed to participate in the show.

Dress Rehearsal is Friday, June 12th, 2020 at Monarch HS. An exact schedule will be posted as we get closer.

Pictures and video can be taken at Dress Rehearsal if there is no flash. No pictures or video can be taken on recital day. This will be strictly enforced. A professional digital video of the show is included in your recital package.

Dress rehearsal is scheduled in time blocks. Ideally we will run everything as close to show order as possible. However, due to quick changes and attendance we might take one dance before another. You may leave once your dancer has finished all their routines. In accordance with studio policy, we ask that if your dancer is under the age of 6 you remain in the audience the entire time your dancer is present.

Your dancer should arrive 15 minutes before their call time. They should be stage ready (hair and make-up done, costume on). They should put their belongings in the dressing room and find their classmates in the auditorium. All classes will sit together in an assigned row so they can be checked in before going backstage as a class.

No. Now that we have multiple shows in one day please take your belongings with you so that students in other shows can use the space. Please leave valuables at home. We also cannot guarantee that we will be the only ones using Monarch HS that weekend.

Yes! We invite you and your dancer to stay and watch dress rehearsal. It’s a great opportunity for our students to support other PCDC students.
