Show Week Schedule!
Double Check Where YOU Need to Be Next Week!
  • All Staging Rehearsals  for your routines
  • Dress Rehearsal on THURSDAY NIGHT ONLY (Company/ Pre-Company Dancers & Beginning Pointe will NOT rehearse during the Matinee Dress Rehearsal)
  • Friday Evening Performance- Everyone will remain backstage the entire performance.
  • Saturday Matinee Performance- Stay tuned for which performers will need to remain backstage the entire performance!
  • Saturday Evening Performance- Everyone will remain backstage the entire performance.
Wow! Company dancers definitely make planning a show order tricky and completely impossible to design without quick changes! With that in mind, please be sure to read through all of the notes specifically for Company/Pre-Company dancers to help the recital run as smoothly as possible for everyone!
Quick changes: So...the quick changes this year are going to be memorable, to say the least! But have no fear! We know they exist, we are planning for them and we will be helping everyone make them! 
  • With the number of dancers involved in quick changes this year, we think it would be a good idea for the dancers that have really fast changes to get a nude leotard. This way they won't be concerned about changing directly backstage! 
  • This is not a requirement, just a suggestion to help dancers feel more comfortable backstage! The nude leotard should be worn UNDER all tights so that it can be left on when tights are being changed. :) 
  • We will be placing an order for nude leotards on Friday morningIf you want us to order a leotard for your dancer(s), $16 plus tax, please fill out the form below BEFORE Friday morning!
Dress Rehearsals: 
  • Company/Pre-Company dancers DO NOT need to attend the Matinee Dress Rehearsal on Wednesday night.
  • We are only having ONE evening dress rehearsal (Thursday night). More detailed information regarding how we will run the dress rehearsal and prepare for the different routines both nights will be coming your way soon!
  • Beginning Pointe dancers DO NOT need to attend the Matinee Dress Rehearsal on Wednesday. They only need to attend their staging rehearsal!
  • Dressing rooms have not yet been assigned- we are still working with UCM to determine which dressing rooms we will be able to rent this year. We will send out an email with room assignments as soon as we know them.
  • As most of you already know, the backstage check in/check out procedures outlined on the step-by-step info sheets do not apply to Principal Company/Pre-Company dancers. 
  • We expect all of these dancers to be responsible, arrive on time and know when to be ready for which dances without needing to officially check in with, or be under the direct supervision of CS Staff. We will be helping out with quick changes and of course supervising overall, you just don't need to sign in and parents of younger dancers won't receive a name badge when entering the Pre-Company/ Company 1 dressing rooms. :) 
  • Corps Company Dancersas of right now, these dancers will be assigned to non-company dressing rooms with Class Mom/ Room Mom supervision. Please follow the check-in procedures for your age group to help keep it streamlined for volunteers & staff. If your dancer would prefer to be assigned to a Company dressing room, please send an email ASAP to Coreena at:
  • Pre-Company/Company 1- Your classes DO have specific moms who have signed up to be backstage each night! Please reference the Sign-Up genius page to see who is planning on being back there when! IF you also signed up via the studio-wide volunteer form for your child's ballet class for example, you have only been assigned to the Pre-Company/Company dressing room, not the room with the rest of the dancers in the ballet class. 
Hairstyles-  High bun for everything! We might try to do a high pony for Hip Hop and Company Tap 3.
