Our staff will cherish this last class of the season with your tiny dancer!

CONCERT DRESS REHEARSALS

Q; When is dress rehearsal for the concert?


A: Your DRESS REHEARSAL will take place on the same day as your scheduled concert performance. Dress rehearsals are scheduled throughout the day in order of appearance in the concert. Dress rehearsals will be followed by a 7:00PM SHOWTIME!


Q: How should my dancer arrive for their scheduled dress rehearsal?


A: KJ strives to cultivate an environment of young professionals who appreciate the entire production process. Requiring appropriate costume cover ups for our cast is part of that training process. Performers should always wear a cover-up over their costume when entering and exiting the building. An oversized white button up dress shirt is ideal and will not interfere with hair and make up preparation while providing length for good costume coverage. Dancers must wear closed toed shoes at all times when not on stage.

Your dancer should arrive “stage ready” in their costume (with a cover up over their costume) and in full hair and make up for dress rehearsal.


Please arrive no less than 20 minutes prior to your scheduled dress rehearsal time. The dress rehearsal process involves many different elements of production. Please be flexible at dress rehearsals as we professionally prepare our dancers, crew, and stage.
