Ballet Full Cast Rehearsals:

  • Full Cast Rehearsals are absolutely mandatory for specified classes/cast members. Dancers who are absent from a full cast rehearsal for any reason other than family emergency will not be permitted to perform in the Show. There are no exceptions.
  • Full Cast Rehearsals are held at SESD. Doors will be unlocked 15 minutes prior to first start time.
  • There is very high traffic between Acts. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early ready to dance (regular class attire, no costumes unless otherwise specified) and place dance bags in Studio A. If your dancer needs to get dressed at the studio, please arrive early enough to do so and be ready to dance by the rehearsal start time.
  • Please remind your dancer not to play on or with the Acro equipment and barres in Studio A.
  • Intermediate/Advanced and pointe dancers should begin quietly warming up before their rehearsal start time.
  • Typically, we do not wear costumes—please wear regular ballet class attire unless instructed otherwise. Hair should be slicked back in a bun.

Showcase Meetings:

  • 2022 Dates:
    • Friday, April 29th 6:00PM (at SESD)
    • Saturday, April 30th 11:00AM (on Zoom)
    • Showcase meetings generally last 30-40 minutes
  • Showcase Meetings are required for ALL performers.
  • Show day is VERY busy. It is extremely important to attend Showcase meetings and ask all questions prior to the show date. Katherine will be tied up running the show; coordinating lights and sound with the technicians, checking on dancers, and much more. We want this experience to be as smooth and pleasant as possible, but there is no guarantee Katherine will be able to answer phone calls, texts, or emails at any time during the day. If you have a question and cannot find Katherine, look for someone in a “volunteer” shirt or your dancer’s teacher. Showcase meetings will eliminate most of the stress and confusion!
