dress rehearsal – Sunday, June 2nd

The dress rehearsal will be at the same location where the recital is being held — the L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center. The theatre is located on the NSU campus at 700 Park Ave in Norfolk.

Dress Rehearsal is just that… it is a dress rehearsal and a tech rehearsal! We have to stop for lighting, sound, and placement adjustments and it is hard to know exactly how long each show run through will take so please bring your patience and understanding with you this day.

Pictures are taken DURING Dress Rehearsal while your dancer is with their stage moms. Please make sure Picture Order Forms are turned in BEFORE Dress Rehearsal.

Since the recital is divided into two shows, so then is the dress rehearsal. The two rehearsals are divided up as follows:

11:30am — "Early Show"
Tuesday classes (except Tuesday 10am class)
Thursday classes
Friday classes
Monday 6:30pm Hip Hop class
Pre Company 2
Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Companies

Dancers please arrive at 10:15am with hair and makeup on and ready to go in first costume with a cover up overtop. It is not the responsibility of the stage mom to do all the children’s hair and makeup. They will be back stage to keep everyone happy and help change from one costume to another.


4:30pm — "Late Show"
Monday classes (except 6:30pm Hip Hop class)
Wednesday classes
Saturday classes
Tuesday 10am class
Pre Company 1
Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Companies

Dancers please arrive at 3:15pm with hair and makeup on and ready to go in first costume with a cover up overtop. It is not the responsibility of the stage mom to do all the children’s hair and makeup. They will be back stage to keep everyone happy and help change from one costume to another.
