DRESS REHEARSAL WEEK  




Dress Rehearsals: May 30-June 3

Location:  Petaluma Veterans Auditorium



During the week before the performances, May 30-June 3, we will have dress rehearsals instead of regular classes - all will be held at the Petaluma Veterans Auditorium.  Students will need to bring their full costume (including shoes and tights) to rehearsal so that they can practice in costume.  Students should do their hair and makeup for dress rehearsals as video and photos may be taken that day. 



PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE

 

Students should arrive 45 minutes before show time.  The audience will open about 25 minutes before show time.

 

Students in the Sunday shows should leave between performances as we won’t have supervision at the theater between shows.

 

 

PRODUCTION FEE AND CONTRACT:  All costs for these shows have been included in your monthly tuition so no additional fees need to be paid.  This includes a special show t-shirt to wear in the finale!  

We ask that everyone fills out the contract to let us know that your child will be performing and that you’ve read all the necessary information.  You need to fill out one google form per student; if you have multiple students in your family, please fill out one form for each student.

 

Here is the link to the online contract: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdCq_5Nw7tu1EF9QCv82tQ2EN7EVYzcjFKwIPWdZePbu16NpQ/viewform?usp=sf_link 

You must submit this online form by Friday, March 18th.  Late contracts will be charged a $20 late fee IF they are allowed to participate. 



FINALE DANCE FOR THE SUNDAY DANCE RECITALS:  

We put together a very special finale that represents each year’s show theme - this year our theme is BLOOMING AGAIN!

 

To participate in the Finale Dance, dancers must be in the Sunday shows and MUST ATTEND THE MANDATORY REHEARSAL on Friday, May 27th from 4:00-6:30pm and before the shows on Sunday, June 5th from 10:30-11:30am.  Dancers can sign up to be in the Finale Dance in our online contract.  The cost to be in the finale is just $7 per student.

 

ADMISSION:  

Tickets can be purchased online beginning May 20th and at the door.  Tickets are not sold at the studio.  Children 5 and under may attend for free if they sit in a parent’s lap.  We will send out a link at that time and will include any Covid Protocols.

 

COSTUMES

 

Students will be borrowing costumes and accessories from the studio.  There may be some items that each individual class will need to provide like black leggings or a black spaghetti strapped leotard.  We will be sending home a detailed costume list in early May.  

 

Our Primary, Preschool and Boys classes will get to keep their costumes except for some possible accessories - this cost was included in your monthly tuition payments.

 

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EVERY SHOW

 

VIDEO & FLOWERS & PROGRAM ADS: 

We will be posting a video of the show on YouTube in the weeks to follow the show.  This is free to watch!   

 

On the contract, you can order flowers for your special performer. Flowers can only be purchased in advance.

 

You can also purchase an ad for the program.  This can be a special shout out to celebrate your child or to advertise your business!  Proceeds from program ads go towards stipends for our backstage student helpers.

 

PARENT VOLUNTEERS:  

Every Rhythms family is required to volunteer for one of the performances.  The volunteer sign up will go out in early May along with the costume requirements. 

 

 If you choose not to volunteer, you can also opt out by paying an additional fee of $30.  

 

CLEANING UP:  

After the shows, students will not be allowed to leave until the theater is completely cleaned up.   Having the students clean up after their show is an important part of learning to be a good performer and team player. We hope you will help us by reminding your students about this policy.

 

THEY WILL ALSO RETURN ALL OF THEIR COSTUMES THAT BELONG TO RHYTHMS BEFORE LEAVING.  ANYONE WHO FORGETS TO RETURN THEIR COSTUME WILL BE CHARGED A $20 LATE FEE and must return it to the studio the following week, or be charged the full price of the costume.
