LOTS of Master Calendar Updates AND In Studio Dress Rehearsal

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 Radix and 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.  

This post represents calendar updates through the first weekend in February.  There will be rehearsal for all groups the weekend of February 10-12, just waiting to see what is needed.

In Studio Dress Rehearsals

Dancers and Moms are required for In Studio Dress Rehearsals for each group.  See dates by group below.   These dates have also been added to the Master Calendar  Here is what to bring/expect:   

  • This is a FULL COSTUME/dress rehearsal at the Studio for both the dancer and mom to learn what will be required with all costumes. It is very important that moms attend at their group’s designated time, especially for the older groups (Encore, Premier, Elite), in case there are other alterations needed or undergarments that need to be purchased.   NOTE: If you are unable to attend, please ask another mom in your group to work with your dancer during Dress Rehearsal to relay information to you about any costume adjustments, etc. that are needed for your daughter.  
  • This ‘dress rehearsal’ is when costumes will be tried on, checked for alterations and changes needed, etc. The dancers will run through their dances in the costume to confirm that it is “stage ready.”   Competition Hair and Make-up are not required for this Dress Rehearsal.
  • Please bring ALL costumes (that you have in hand), AND, please make sure that ALL pieces of the costume are labeled with your dancer’s name.  Bring competition shoes and tights.    
  • Please be on time!   
  • If your dancer’s Dress Rehearsal is scheduled at the studio during their class time, they will still have class before or after their group’s scheduled Dress Rehearsal time.
    • Bravo –  Monday, January 23 5:00pm-6:00pm
    • Ovation –  Monday, January 23 6:00pm-7:15pm
    • Encore – Monday, January 23 OR 30 7:00pm-8:15pm (depending on costume shipping)
    • Prodigy – Wednesday, January 25 7:00-8:15/8:30pm
    • Premier & Elite – January 26 OR February 2 8:00-9:00 (depending on costume shipping)

Get Your Tights!

The Competition Tights List has been updated on the Shoe & Tights Buying Guide webpage.  EACH GROUP should review the spreadsheet to see what type and color of tights your dancer needs.

Please Click Here to access the Shoe & Tight Buying Guide web page.   You will see the Tights Buying Guide listed at the bottom of the web page. Please purchase these ASAP, so you have them in hand for dress rehearsals.

REMINDERS:

  1. It is recommended that each dancer have at least 3 pairs of each style of tights on hand at all times as rips, runs and tears are common!
  2. Please make sure that you check the correct dance group for your dancer, and also make sure you are choosing the correct color of tights to purchase.

Other costume/tights selections are still being finalized for some groups since costumes are still being delivered. We will add other tights selections to the list as soon as they are known. We will send out another blog post when we have updates.

Solo, Duo, Trio Signup Genius Updated

Cheryl has created the Solo, Duo, Trio Signup Genius for this season. Click here to access the Signup Genius.

Make sure that you note on the Signup Genius whether you are signing up for your dancer’s solo, duo, or trio rehearsal.   Please make sure that only 1 mom or dancer signs up for a given slot for a duo or trio.

You may only sign up for one slot each time new dates are posted. After a week, you may check again and sign up for one more open slot if available.  

Dancers, please remember the following:

  • Please bring your music to the private lesson.
  • Please bring payment ($35 for a 30 minute session with Cheryl or Madison) at the start of each rehearsal.  There is no option to have this charge added to your FootNotes account.  All dancers must pay the instructor directly by either check, Venmo, or cash.
  • If your dancer is unable to attend your booked rehearsal session, you must notify FootNotes at footnotesdance@comcast.net, at least 24 hours ahead of your scheduled time.   If you ‘miss’/forget a rehearsal that you have signed up for, you are still responsible for the payment to the instructor.
  • As always, dancers are always free to book an empty room to practice on their own.
