Mandatory Dress Rehearsal for the 11th Annual Spring Showcase is on Sunday, May 22 from 10am-3:30pm at our main location in Old City, 219 Cuthbert Street, 3rd Floor. The time listed is your REHEARSAL time. Please arrive about 10 minutes earlier than your rehearsal time. Most classes will rehearse for about 10 minutes. The Theater Dance and Contemporary Dance section is called for 1 hour, as we need to rehearse the classes together. If your child is in only one dance, he or she may arrive in costume with hair and make-up done. We will not hold rehearsal times for students who are late. The class will rehearse without him or her.
No coffee is allowed in the studio on this day.
If you attend the Rittenhouse or Wynnewood locations and have never been to our main studios, you will use the silver call box to the right of the front door to call upstairs. Press the up arrow until you see “PHILADANCE” and then press the below Call button. We can then buzz you in.
If you want to purchase a photography package from Debbie Boardman, you must arrive by 1:30pm to get photos taken. She is done at 2:30pm. You will pay her directly. Download her order form HERE.
Hair for girls: Pulled back into a bun on the crown of the head. Use a hair tie, plenty of hair pins, a hair net, and hair spray. If hair is too short for a bun, it must be secured away from the face as best as possible.
Hair for boys: Neat and clean. Should not fall into the face.
Costumes: Remember the costume itself, but also extra bobby pins to secure the hair piece. Footed pink ballet tights and pink ballet slippers for girls in Ballet. Footed tan tights and tan jazz shoes for girls in Theater Dance. Black ballet shoes for boys in Ballet. Black jazz shoes for boys in Theater Dance. Sometimes white tights are required for boys. We will announce this at or after Dress Rehearsal.
Schedule below. RH indicates the Rittenhouse location and WW indicates the Wynnewood location. All other classes are Old City location classes.
