  • Dancers should arrive in full costume, girls’ hair pulled back in a bun (unless alternate directions have been given by teacher on the class recital handout), and stage makeup!
  • Pick Up – Dancers will ONLY be available for pick-up IN BETWEEN ACTS. Please do NOT go backstage during the show to pick up your dancer. Any dancer who is not picked up during the 1st intermission may be picked up after Act 2. Dancers 12 years old and older may check themselves out to watch the remainder of the show from the auditorium but must make sure they have collected all of their belongings before exiting the dressing room area. If you need to leave the auditorium for any reason during the show, please use one of the back two exits, and exit between dance numbers, to keep disruption at a minimum!
