T.A.P. Rehearsal and Recital Information 2015
Picture Day is Sunday, April 12th at the church (where we held registration). Please arrive early, and be prepared to wait for your group’s turn. When your class is called, you will line up for individual pictures (if you ordered any), and then we will take a group picture (even if you don’t buy any pictures, we would like everyone to participate in the group picture). Hair and make-up can be worn however you like! Please be prompt this day, we are on a tight schedule and have many classes that are taking pictures!
Rehearsal will be held on Friday, May 1st at the High School. Rehearsal will start at 5:00 p.m. with a brief informative meeting. Please arrive on time to receive necessary information. We will practice the Finale dance first, followed by the Father/Daughter dance. Next, we will practice the Preschool and Kindergarten classes. Once the Preschool and Kindergarten groups have practiced, they will be allowed to leave. From there, we will run the rehearsal in show order. Each group will be called on stage to practice their entrance, their dance, and their exit. Some groups may be asked to stay longer to practice if necessary. Please wear clothes you can dance in (regular dance attire will be fine). When it is not your turn to practice, please remain quiet so we can work with the groups that are on stage. There will be some downtime between dances, so you may want to bring light snacks and quiet activities to occupy your child. Once you have practiced all of your dances on stage AND your teacher has excused your group, you are free to leave.
Recital is Saturday, May 2nd at 4pm and 7:30 pm at the High School. You must arrive an hour prior to showtime. Please arrive with hair and makeup completed, and bring your costume/s and dance shoes. Hair should be pulled back in a low bun and secured with bobby pins, hair gel, or hair spray. Makeup should be “stage” makeup, including blush, mascara and lipstick (stage makeup is applied heavier than everyday makeup). All clothing and shoes should be labeled. It is recommended you don’t wear underwear. Undergarments are easily on stage (even through the costumes). If you must wear underwear, make sure straps and lines are invisible. Each group will have a designated room backstage, with room helpers. Everyone will stay for the entire recital, when the entire company returns to the stage for our finale.
