Importance of Rehearsals:

Attending rehearsals means that children will feel more at ease during their recital. They will be more comfortable dancing in a new area. They will be familiar with the set of the stage and with having other performers and side of stage helpers around them.

If a child misses a rehearsal it does not only impact on them, but the other children in their group who can become disorientated.

To ensure the performances run smoothly, our student are asked to attend rehearsals in the weeks leading up to their recital. Most students will have to take part in TWO or THREE extra rehearsals – A full show put-together as well as a theatre rehearsal and a possible “put-together” rehearsal if dancing with another class.



Apologies for the delay in confirming the times for the combined class practises as mentioned in the Recital Newsletter #2.  It has been a little bit of a mission to co-ordinate times and availability with the various teachers involved.

Please put these times on your calendar as it makes a huge difference to their on stage performance when they attend the rehearsals.
