*Check-in at the table outside the auditorium for dress rehearsal.
*Twinkle dancers should have one parent stay with them during the rehearsal. Stars dancers ages 8-11 should have one parent stay with them. Only one parent per dancer, please.
*Upon Check-in, all Twinkle dancers will receive a paper bracelet to wear on their right wrist during the recital. Parents will keep the corresponding tab and will need this to exit the dressing room after the recital. Please instruct your Stars dancer on where they are to meet you after the show. Generally by the band room/dressing room is best. Females only in the dressing room.
*During rehearsal dancers will sit in a row marked with the title of their song/songs. Parents of Twinkle and young Stars will sit in the row behind them.
*We start rehearsal with the finale' so that people can leave after they rehearse their dances.
*To start the finale' rehearsal, each class will be instructed to go into the side hallways of the auditorium to practice their parade into the auditorium, down the steps and onto the stage.
*Parents, or one parent per class are welcome to follow their class to the hallway and help keep the class together as we get ready to practice the finale'.
*After everyone parades in and takes the stage, they will perform the finale' dance that everyone learned in class. It will be repeated until everyone has had the chance to go through it a few times.
*When the music fades, everyone takes their final bow.
*After finale' practice, dancers will take their seats in the auditorium. Dancers in the first 3 dances will stay backstage to line up.
*The Soul Brothers and Soul Sisters will rehearse their dances first.
*We then start running the show in order unless there is a special reason to go out of order.
*Our competitive dancers will not be rehearsing on Thursday so that the Twinkle rehearsal goes as quickly as possible.
*Our competitive dancers will rehearse on Friday which includes many quick changes. We are hoping for a smooth Stars rehearsal. :)
*If your dancer is toward the end of the show, please enjoy the rehearsal together and know that we are doing our best to keep things moving along.
*We want everyone to have a good experience with their stage practice. If we need to stop and repeat for any reason, we will.
*If your dancer needs snacks, you are welcome to bring them and eat in the hallway. Please do not bring food or drinks into the auditorium.
*All Twinkle and young Stars dancers will be checked out with their parent at the table in the hallway as they exit.
*Please have your dancer practice auditorium etiquette by sitting quietly and watching performances.
*On recital day arrive ready 45 minutes early: 3:15p for Saturday Twinkle, and 1:15p for Sunday Stars.
*Enter door #3 which is closest to the band room/dressing room.
*Accompany your dancer to their station in the band room.
*If you are a parent volunteer, please introduce yourself to the other parents in your class.
*If your Twinkle class does not have a parent volunteer, a high school student will be assigned to your class. We also have parent volunteers supervising the band room.
*Please remind your Twinkle dancers to ask someone for help with trips to the restroom etc.
*If you have not volunteered but would still like to, please let me know. We never have too many volunteers. You will have plenty of time to go to the front to watch your dancer from the auditorium.
*At the end of the Twinkle show the curtain will close and all dancers will be taken to the band room. Parents will meet them there and be checked-out with their bracelet and stub. Women only please.
*At the end of the Stars show, the curtain will close and all dancers will be taken to the band room. Dancers should wait for parents in the band room but will not be checked out by a volunteer.
*We hope you enjoy the show! Please let me know if you have any questions. It is best to email me this week rather than leave a voicemail.
