Week of May 8-13, 2017

Here we go….it is your week to shine! Are you ready? Do you know when your rehearsals are, have all of your costume items and know all of your choreography? If so, you are going to have a great time.

  1. Rehearsals start tomorrow beginning in 5h period if you have after school rehearsal. Rehearsal concludes at 7:30 on Monday and 6:30 on Tuesday. (I know many of you are still testing all week and I want to get you home as soon as possible. Mr. Parker already has the floor down, so we will be able to use class time on the stage!)

2. Don’t forget that you will be fed on Friday night, but not on Saturday because you are not at school all day. Bring your dinner on Saturday, and we will give you a break to eat.

3. Dress rehearsals start on Wednesday with hair, makeup, costumes, etc. We will be running Friday night’s show and Thursday will be Saturday night’s show. Friday, we will run all of Friday night’s show before the 7:30 evening show.

4. Don’t be late on Saturday because after warm up we will run all of the Saturday night’s show before the evening show.

5. Make sure you have all of your dance items with you this week as you will be dancing all of your styles.

6. Each day, come to the dance studios first, unless we tell you ahead of time.

There will be more reminders, but these are the main ones to start with!

Have a great Sunday!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

This week, we REALLY need to finish the dances and discuss costumes. Some classes will need to try on costumes and get their names in the costumes. Barre warm up will be minimal so that we can accomplish this. We are running out of time as I know testing with EOC, SLOs,  and other conflicts will occur. If you are going to miss class this week due to the Alabama trip, get with someone and catch up. DO NOT wait until next week to ask in class what you missed. At that point, we will be moving on.

I hope you had a great break!

I don’t have any announcements except we are going into our last unit for this year! Unit 6! Review your dance as we need to make great strides in completing your dances so we can make the changes that will put the finishing touches on them.
