Recital Information –  2019

Dress Rehearsal – June 14th
West Aurora High School
1201 W New York St
Aurora, IL


Dress Rehearsal is MANDATORY for all dancers.  Any dancer who does not come to dress rehearsal will not perform in recital and the dance will be restaged!

 Procedures:

  • Only one parent per student is permitted in the auditorium during dress rehearsal!  If you must bring a sibling, please be certain they remain with you at all times!
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before your picture time.  Light Make-up may be worn for your pictures.
  • Bring your costume in a garment bag labelled with the dancer’s name and class. Do not arrive in your costume - change into it at the school. 
  • All costumes should be steamed and altered (if needed) before arrival.
  • All tights should be purchased BEFORE dress rehearsal.  We will have a limited amount available for purchase that day – cash only.
  • Please check all shoes for holes and purchase new ones if needed BEFORE dress rehearsal.
  • No underwear, jewelry, or nail polish may be worn.
  • Hair must be neat and pulled back per the requirements of your child’s teacher.  Bring extra hair pins, hair spray, hair net, etc.
  • Wear only clear deodorant on this day.  White deodorant gets on the costumes and we can see it from the audience.
  • Please participate in your child’s group photo even if you are not purchasing photos.  All dancers are important and we want full group photos for our display!  Please note that no parents are permitted in the photography area.
  • Immediately after pictures are taken, students will be taken directly from the photo area to backstage for their rehearsal.  Students will be released from the auditorium AFTER their rehearsal.
  • You may take videos of your child’s dances on this day only.  No videos are allowed during our show.  A professional video of the entire show may be ordered from Creative Digital Masters.  Order forms will be available during dress rehearsal and show.
  • We will try to run as close to our schedule as possible and your cooperation is crucial to this event running smoothly!

  • All dancers must arrive at the school at 12:45 pm with hair and make-up done.  Bring extra hair pins, hair spray, hair nets, lipstick, make-up wipes, clear deodorant, etc.
  • Upon arrival, please bring student to designated areas.  Check with front table in the entryway if you are unsure where to bring your child.
