Dress Rehearsal at RIVERBEND HIGH SCHOOL

We are going to flip flop these dress rehearsals so the ballet students do not need to return their rented costumes to us before the actual recital. 

All ACT II Students need to arrive by 11:30 and we will start by 11:45. Once your dance is done, you may leave. You will return by 3:45-you can either watch Act I for free or you will report to your assigned dressing room. 

All ACT I students need to arrive by 1:00 to start at 1:30. You will stay. Our recital will start at 4pm. You will stay with us backstage until Intermission. You will then return your costume in the bag given with all pieces. Sieck Photography will be there to take pictures of ACT I Students during dress rehearsal. 

If you are in both acts, you get to move in with us for the day! Please bring nut-free/mess-free snacks and water! 

Recital!!!

We will start at 4pm. Doors will open at 3:45. Tickets are $15.

You are more than welcomed to talk to Ms. Roxanne about that. She will have dressing stations set up backstage. If your child needs help in the dressing room, you can just come back real quick to help and then go back out into the audience to watch.
