· Dress Rehearsal - Wednesday, June 4, 2003.
· Recital - Thursday, June 5, 2003.
On Wednesday, June 4.
Each group is assigned an approximate time.
Please be at the theatre 20 minutes prior to your call to stage and go
directly to the dressing room to meet your chaperones.
They will explain all of the rules to you and take you to the stage for
your performance number. You may
watch from the audience during the dress rehearsal, but please do not stand back
stage. This space is reserved for
performers and volunteers only. When
you arrive at the theatre, please enter through the stage door (West side) and
instructions on dressing room locations will be right inside the doors on the
bulletin board. Please have your child dressed in her black leotard & pink
tights with her hair in a bun and make-up applied prior to your arrival to the
theatre. You are responsible for
doing your own child’s hair and make-up.
Instructions are included in this packet.
I will need at least 3 helpers per class. Any class without 3 helpers
will not be able to perform.
On Thursday, June 5, dancers should
arrive at the theater with hair and make-up done between 5:30 and 6:00. Go
directly to the dressing room and get into the costume. At 6:15 the 1st 3 dances
will be taken up to the stage, #'s 3-6 will be lined up downstairs and the rest
will be taken to the balcony to watch. Three dances before each number we will
be bringing another group down and taking one back to the balcony to watch.
Creative Movement, Primary 1 and 2, and Pre-primary will be finished after they
perform, but will be taken to the balcony following their dance to watch.
All children are to be picked up in the dressing rooms following the
performance. No one is allowed in the balcony unless they are a helper or a
performer NO EXCEPTIONS! You must wait until the show is over to get your
children. When you drop your child
off for dress rehearsal or recital, please give the chaperones the name of the
person who will be meeting your child in the dressing room following the
performance. Only one person will
be allowed in the dressing room area to pick up your child.
You may then take your child to meet the rest of his/her family in the
lobby or in the outside courtyard area. Last
year we too many people in the dressing room area and it became very difficult
for the chaperones to keep track of the children.
No one will be allowed in the dressing room area until the children are
safely into their dressing rooms. We
will have monitors posted at each of the doors, so please be patient.
This is for the children’s safety. The approximate running time of
the show is one hour and thirty minutes.
EVERYONE needs to have their hair pulled back in a low
secure bun. If hair is shorter than shoulder length, a French braid with all
ends tucked under will be fine. Hair that is chin length or shorter will have to
be secured away from the face with barrettes. If you have trouble getting your
child's hair pulled back securely, find someone who can. Buns stay more securely
if you wrap a hair net around the bun before you place the pins in. Use plenty
of pins (at least 10) or the bun will surely fall out. Please have hair secured
before arriving at the theater.
You will need to apply base 1 shade darker
than your child's skin- unless your child has very dark skin- to the neck and
face. A rose or medium brown blush
should be applied to the cheekbones. Use
a medium shade of brown eye shadow, to highlight and accent your child's eyes.
Use black or brown eyeliner on the upper and lower lids, black mascara,
and a deep burgundy lipstick. Small
children may fidget upon application, but it is essential that everyone have the
proper make-up applied in order to look “normal” and not “washed out” on
stage. All make-up should be
applied prior to your arrival to the theater.
We will have “ fix-it moms,”
Who can correct any mistakes, but will not be
applying anyone's make-up.
NO UNDERPANTS WITH THE COSTUMES!!!!!!!!!!
Dancers do not wear underpants with leotards and tights.
The tights are made to function as the underpants.
I have told the children in the past that… “You don't wear underpants
with a swim suit, and you don't wear underpants with a leotard.”
