If you have questions during the rehearsal or during the recital please ask a mom or dad that is wearing a lanyard. Your class mom is your first line of defense. She can ask the dressing room manager who can talk to us backstage via headsets. Backstage is off-limits to parents – it’s just too crowded

 

During the Dress Rehearsal and Recital:


• Performers must go to their dressing room upon arrival at the Casino. There is to be no running around in the lobby or in the Event Center.
• Please do not bring friends or brothers to the dressing room during the dress rehearsal or recital. The dressing room is for performers only and is a “Girls Only” area.
• Performers will not be allowed to sit in the audience on Friday or Saturday until they are done performing. Once they are done performing they may sit in the audience or you are free to leave.
• Performers must remain with the class mom in the dressing room or line-up area until they are done performing.
• Each mother is responsible for dressing/changing her child in the dressing room. Class moms are only to supervise them between performances, while lined up etc. They are not responsible for dressing all of the girls.
• When your child is finished performing you must go get them from the dressing room. Dancers will not be allowed to leave the dressing room without a parent. Dressing rooms will each have a door supervisor. Dads that are picking up daughters can check with the Dressing Room Supervisor at the door and they will send your daughter out.

 

 

Things to Remember as you plan for the Recital:


There will be a limited amount of coat racks for hanging garments. If you have a small portable rack it might be a good idea to take it if you would like to hang things up.
• Take along a large laundry basket that you can toss your things in when you change or when you are in a hurry. That way they are not scattered about the floor getting mixed up with someone else’s.
• Be sure that everything has your name in it.
• Please be respectful of our NO VIDEOTAPING OR FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY rule.
• Video orders may be turned in until the end of the recital on Saturday.
• The Casino will be selling concessions in the Lobby of the Event Center on Friday and Saturday (sandwiches, fruit, water, juice, etc). Please make wise choices when eating in costumes.
• Girls are not to wear underpants under costumes.
• No stick-on tattoos.
• No nail polish.
• No toe nail polish if you are in tumbling or a dance with bare feet.

Hair and Make-Up:
• Please do your hair and make-up at home before arriving at the Casino for dress rehearsal and the recital. The Event Center restrooms are NOT to be used by dancers for doing hair and make-up!!!
• Hair should be in a straight ponytail (with the rhinestone clip over the ponytail holder for dance, just the ponytail for tumbling). No one should have bangs on their forehead – they should be swept off to the side. We want a uniform appearance onstage. The focus of our performance is the dancing and having one or two students with intricate up-dos or other hair styles is distracting to the look of the performance.
• All performers must wear make-up which should include foundation, powder, eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, blush and lipstick.
