  • ENCORE dancers (for The Family) arrive at 3:00pm for last routine & finale in the 2pm show. Dancers should be in costume/stage ready, stretched and ready to dance. (Do not bring Dream Duffel with you.)
  • ENCORE, OVATION & PRODIGY parents, please note that your dancer may stay at the venue in between shows IF she has adult supervision (if your group wants to bring in food/eat together at the venue).  Dancers need to be show ready by 5:15pm sharp each day for the 6pm show.
  • ALL dancers will be released to the front hallway of the venue (near the check-in area).

For 6pm Show:

  • ELITE, ENCORE, & PREMIER dancers arrive at 5:15pm for setup of Dream Duffel, etc. for dances in the 6pm show.
  • OVATION & PRODIGY dancers (for The Family) meet at Check-in area at 5:45pm. Your 6pm show backstage mom (Ryn & Kelly) will meet dancers at the check-in area and escort them backstage. Immediately following The Family/first routine in 6pm show, they will bring them back to check-in area to be released. Dancers should be in costume/stage ready, stretched and ready to dance. (Do not bring Dream Duffel or backpack with you.)
  • As a reminder, parents of those dancers that are only dancing in The Family routine in the 6pm show will not be able to sit in the audience for the performance.   


  • BACKSTAGE MOMS:  If you wish to be backstage during one or both shows, click here to signup to be a Backstage Helper on the FootNotes Signup Genius.  Only moms listed on the FootNotes Signup Genius will be allowed to be backstage.
  • HAIRSTYLE: Dancers should wear the competition hairstyle (middle part, low pony) for all competition routines.  Note that all ballet pieces must have a low bun. Dancers will need to transition their hair from bun to low pony or low pony into a bun depending on where their ballet routine falls within the show order for both Dress Rehearsal on Saturday and Recital on Sunday.   The bun must be a neat, tight bun. Hairnets are encouraged and helpful for quick, neat buns.   Once the ballet piece is complete, dancers will transition their hair back to the low pony.  Bravo, Ovation & Encore can keep hair in bun for Lyrical/Contemporary if it helps with timing between ballet routines. For the younger dancers, the backstage moms will handle this task for the dancers.  For the older dancers, the backstage moms will ‘check’ the dancer’s bun to ensure it is neat and secure.
    • REMINDER: ALL dancers must bring your hair supplies…a comb, hairnet, hairspray, and bobby pins to create the bun.  A flat iron and brush may be needed to get your dancer’s pony straightened after the bun is taken down.
  • MAKE-UP:  Dancers DO NOT need to wear makeup for Dress Rehearsal on Saturday. For Recital on Sunday, dancers must wear full competition makeup including lashes and our competition lipstick color.  There is no need to change the color of lipstick for ballet.

Lastly…Click here to access the Vibe Signup Genius for Recital volunteer opportunities for both parents & dancers including recital/trophy distribution, shout out sales, decorations and clean up. We have a few volunteer jobs that still need to be filled for Recital. Please consider helping out with these remaining tasks.

FootNotes Picture Week Details 

Click here to access the FootNotes Picture Week newsletter and schedule that was sent out.

Below are details about schedule, Hair and Make-up for Picture Week, along with specifics about securing your dancer’s spot for individual pictures. 

  • Schedule:
  • PRODIGY & ENCORE… Ballet pics are scheduled on Monday following rehearsal. You can either arrive to rehearsal in a bun or moms may come up to the studio after rehearsal to pull hair up into high bun for ballet photos. Bring hair accessories.  
  • BRAVO… Ballet pics are scheduled on Tuesday at 7:15pm following rehearsal from 4:30-6:00pm.  Releve can squeeze ballet photos in sooner than 7:15pm if girls are ready earlier. Girls can either arrive to rehearsal with hair secured in a high bun or moms may come up to the studio at 6:00 after rehearsal to pull hair up into high bun for ballet photos. Bring hair accessories.  
  • ELITE & PREMIER… Ballet pics are scheduled on Wednesday following rehearsal, so bring hair accessories for changing your hairstyle into a high bun for photos.

  • Hair and Make-up for Picture Week:
    • Dancers need to be in Vibe competition hair and stage make-up (no lashes…but you do need mascara) for all group dances.
    • For ballet, dancers should wear their hair in a high bun at the crown of their head (follow the natural upsweeping line of the cheekbone for correct alignment of the bun; it should be high but not on top of their head). There should be no part in the hair. If you have ballet pics same day as your group pics, your hairstyle will need to change between the photos so make sure you bring hair accessories.

At the Studio:  Space in the studio will be limited during picture week.  ALL GROUPS If you have 1 or 2 pictures being taken on any given day, please do not bring your Dream Duffel.  Just bring your dancer’s costume, shoes and accessories in a smaller bag. Please come “picture-ready” (make-up and hair completely done) and dressed in your first costume.  Bring make-up and hair accessories for touch-ups.   Plan to be flexible given the space constraints.

IMPORTANT:  Releve links – Review/take action on these, NOW if you haven’t already!

Please visit this link for all RelevePHOTO info:  click here

To make a Deposit for pictures (this also “schedules” with Releve that you want your dancer to have an individual picture taken): click here

This deposit is REQUIRED for Solo, Duos, and Trios, if you want your  dancer photographed in her solo/duo/trio costume(s).   Releve will not be able to accommodate ‘last minute’/same day sign-ups for solos/duos/trios.   You must sign-up for an available “Comp Session” slot for FN. Click here for the link.  There are slots for each day…an example of what you are looking for is: FN compSESSION I MON apr24 .    Click on the link, and you will see the timeslots available.   There are “compSESSIONs” available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.    

If you want your dancer photographed individually in a group dance costume, you should also make a deposit for that dance, so that Releve knows how many individual photos they will be taking for each group dance.   It helps them with timing/planning.  The Deposit you make ahead of time can be used for any pictures that you end up purchasing from Releve.   Click here to access the Deposits link to find your group to select which dances you wish to have an individual pic taken.

More Master Calendar Updates

The Solo Duo Trio Sign Up genius will be available for signups at 7:00pm tonight. Please be stretched and ready to dance on time. The critiques will be emailed ahead of your scheduled time. Below is a list of the group rehearsal times for next week.

The Master Calendar has been updated with several dates and times. Please make sure you keep your dancer’s schedule updated, and remember ALL rehearsals are mandatory from here on out.  There will be rehearsal every single weekend except for spring break.  Please don’t assume there isn’t just because a schedule hasn’t been set.  It is impossible to set schedules too far in advance because of added conflicts.
