The rehearsals and recitals will take place at the THOMAS JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL Auditorium (4001 West 102nd St., Bloomington, MN 55437).
Rehearsal and recital dates and times can be found here.
*We have always requested that our rehearsals are only for our students and their parents or guardians. It is not a performance experience and is not conducted as such.
Measurements for costumes will be taken by the first week in December. Please note that tights will be ordered FOR ALL STUDENTS along with their costumes. As costumes are custom-ordered, there are no refunds. Alterations may be necessary and are the responsibility of each parent.
Costumes are charged in four installments on October 1st, November 1st, December 1st, and January 1st.
You are expected to have each part of your costume for every performance in order to participate in the recitals. Please remember to bring all appropriate shoes to the REHEARSALS as well as the recitals. All girls may wear make-up if desired. Ballet students must wear their hair securely up in a bun.
Tickets can be purchased online on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that recital tickets are non-refundable.
Do not buy tickets for performing students! Exception: Bouncy the Clown and preschool students may enter the theater, after they perform, ONLY if a ticket is purchased for them
Performers in Bouncy the Clown and 4-5 years old classes should be brought backstage completely ready before the show starts. Following their performance, parents must pick up their student and may return to watch the performance if a ticket has been purchased for that student.
All students should go directly backstage when they arrive for each performance. Each class will be assigned to a dressing room in April. The dressing rooms will be clearly labeled backstage. Volunteers will be in every dressing room to assist the children during the performances. If a costume is worn to the auditorium, it must be completely covered so that no one will see it before the actual performance on stage. Fathers of students will not be allowed backstage.
