Dress Rehearsal

Dress Rehearsal is Dec 2 at Riggs Theatre
*** Be ready to start at 5:30pm.
Get to the theater at 5pm to find dressing rooms and get situated.
Warm-up to be followed up with notes for everyone - dancers, adults, actors, helpers included. Then costumes on for all levels with hair properly & neatly fastened.
Remember, have everything you need with you. Treat this like a performance. Have your hair in a proper ballet bun (no messy buns, ponytails, or side tendrils). Very short hair needs to be pinned back. Have all your costumes, tights, shoes, and accessories with you. To stay organized try keeping all your things in a small laundry basket. Keep the dressing rooms organized by not scattering your things everywhere.
Performance & dress rehearsal guidelines

 Friday and Saturday will be will be busy so make sure you rest up.

We have two performance -- a Matinee at 2pm and an Evening Performance at 7pm

Be at the theater by noon on Saturday, December 3. Get settled and make sure you have everything you need for the day with all your costumes, shoes, etc where they need to be. Do your hair and makeup and be ready for notes.
Warm-up for everyone at 1:00pm. You should already be settled in with hair done and class clothes on.
If someone is sent saying it is time for notes and warm-up, go, the first time. No staying in the dressing room messing with hair or makeup during notes or warm-up. You must be on stage for both. 
Costumes on after warm-up. And then it's show time!

Be back at the theater at 5:30pm. Check that all your things are where they need to be, hairspray/pin any escaping tendrils, touch up any melted makeup and be ready for notes and warm-up by 6:00. Then back into costumes!

Student Examinations

If you or your student are interested in getting started with Cecchetti student examinations let us know.

Ballet III and up are eligible to start working on Grade 1. Examinations take a lot of preparation, study, and commitment.
(Normally 1-2 years is spent studying per grade. More as you progress through the grades.)

Our studio is affiliated with the Cecchetti Council of America. All teachers hold certificates in the Cecchetti Method.
