1. Dress Rehearsal at Sunset Center on Saturday, May 31st 

We look forward to seeing all Beginning through level 6 performers at the dress rehearsal on Saturday at Sunset Center. 

ALL PRESCHOOL CLASS WILL BE HELD AT TDC- CR on SATURDAY 5/31/25.  

Arrive well ahead of time (take into account summer traffic and difficulty parking in Carmel during the summer), have your costumes organized, and be ready to perform in your 1) first costume with 2) hair complete and 3) tights/shoes on. 4) Make-up is not required for dress rehearsal but is welcome (see recital link for make-up details for recital). 

Each piece dress rehearses 1 time (we have allotted 5 min. per dance). 

Dress rehearsal means we run it identical to the show, including hair, shoes, tights, and first costume. There will not be any costume changes other than wearing your first costume. Questions on costume changes, tights, make-up, hair, and shoes? CLICK HERE

2.  YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY THE FRONT DESK IN APRIL IF YOU NEED TO BRING IN COSTUMES (if your dancer has any changes in the show).  WE WILL TRANSPORT THESE COSTUMES TO THE THEATER SO WE CAN ORGANIZE THEM IN ADVANCE.  PLEASE BRING YOUR COSTUME TO THE STUDIO THE FOLLOWING WAY: 

  1.  on a a) non-slip hanger inside a b) clear garment bag (each costume needs its own clear garment bag) and c) label that bag with your first and last name, teacher, class, day, time. 

  2. Label all parts of all costumes with your name 

  3. PLEASE KEEP YOUR SHOES SO YOU ARE ABLE TO WEAR THEM TO CLASSES UNTIL RECITAL- WE WILL COLLECT SHOES AT DRESS REHEARSAL

  4. include tights and back up tights that are unwrapped are a good idea

Tights REMINDER for Show. Layer tights for the show: Have a ballet dance and then a jazz dance? Place the jazz tights under the ballet tights) or visa-versa. Have jazz dance and then contemporary dance? Use the adapt-a-toe convertible tights to eliminate the need to change tights.
