Rehearsal Etiquette

  • Arrive about 15 minutes early to be fully ready to begin at your designated start time.

  • Dancers should be focused and prepared to memorize choreography. Many dancers write notes following rehearsal and review notes prior to the next week’s rehearsal.

  • Rehearsal dress code is less formal than class, but must be appropriate, form-fitting dancewear. Solid colored leotards (other than black) are allowed. Warm-ups are allowed if they do not impair dancing or visibility. Hair should be neat and off the face (bun not required).

  • Visitors are not allowed during rehearsals.

  • Parents and other family members are not allowed to observe rehearsals, but may pick-up dancers on the 3rd floor of the Grand.

  • Please be on time for pick-up at the end of rehearsal.

  • If your dancer is ill on the day of rehearsal, please email and/or call the studio to leave a message. Remember only ONE missed rehearsal is allowed.4
