DRESS REHEARSAL

Thursday, June 22 at 8:30am-10:00pm

Dress rehearsal will be held at the Williams Auditorium at Winston-Salem State University. All students must attend dress rehearsal in order to perform in the recital. It is very important to attend to ensure that everyone will have a  successful performance.  Parents can drop their child/children off back stage. Parents are not allowed to stay backstage.  
There will be signs leading to the backstage area where performers will stay. There will be assigned teachers and helpers to take the students to their proper dressing area, during both the dress rehearsal and the recital. There will also be teachers and helpers assigned to supervise and assist your children.  Once your child has rehearsed each dance they are participating in, they may be picked up.
Please be at the Williams Auditorium at WSSU at the beginning of your scheduled time slot, dressed and ready to perform.

Dress Rehearsal for Music Lesson students participating in Main Recital is Friday, June 23 starting at 1:30pm.
