Where: Roswell Cultural Arts Center, 950 Forest Street, Roswell 30075 Tickets: on sale online Saturday, 4/16

Dress Rehearsal Schedule 

In 2020-2021 our dancers persevered and bloomed despite many challenges and setbacks. Not without its own challenges, 2021-2022 has been a year of resurgence. We have seen more performances, a full year of in person classes, full audiences and the lobby re-open. The determination and resilience of our students is inspirational and it has been a joy to see them continue to grow and thrive.

2021-2022 has also been a year of adjustment and transformation. In January, we had a change in management as Neta stepped back to be the primary caregiver for her sister and Virginia stepped into a new role as director. In May of 2022 we will have our largest class of graduating seniors in our 14 years of business. Many of these seniors have been with us since early elementary school and we are so blessed to have been able to be a part of their lives for so long. Join us as we observe firsthand the Legacy that these exceptional women are passing on to those who follow in their footsteps. Before you know it, your tiny dancer will be leaving their legacy too.

When: on sale Saturday, April 16th at 10am from Dance Recital Ticketing (Links to purchase tickets will be sent out on Friday 4/15 to all accounts that are current by 10am that day). Dancers will not be permitted to perform in the recital (even if tickets have been purchased) if the account is not paid in full by 5/2.

Price: $12/each. Price will increase to $15/each on 5/7.

Seating: Each family will have the ability to purchase up to 6 tickets to their assigned show between 4/16- 4/29. On 4/30 at 10am any remaining tickets will be available for purchase. Children ages 3 and younger may sit on laps.

Dress Rehearsal:

Dress rehearsals will be held at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center Monday 5/2-Thursday 5/5. Dress rehearsals are mandatory. If your child does not rehearse with their class on stage, they will not be permitted to perform in the recital. Performing in a different setting, with stage lights, and no studio mirror can be disorienting. Dress rehearsal is the dancer’s only opportunity to practice in the performance space and can greatly reduce performance anxiety. Being aware of entrances and exits is a safety concern and those traffic patterns need rehearsed with the class.
The CALL TIME is the time that your dancer needs to be inside the theater in full costume/hair/make-up ready to go on stage. We run a tight schedule, so please allow sufficient travel time to Roswell. If there is a medical reason (illness or injury) that prevents your child from attending dress rehearsal, a doctor’s note is required.
Once you arrive at the theater for dress rehearsal, please go directly into the audience and have your child sit with their classmates. Your child’s instructor will come and get them when it is their turn to go on stage. Dress rehearsal is the best opportunity for the dancers to be able to watch the other classes perform and gets them excited for their turn on stage. If your child has more than one dance on a dress rehearsal day or during a

recital, they should change in the dressing room on the left side of the lobby. The Company Dancer dressing room is on the right side of the lobby.
Videotaping is allowed during rehearsal, but not during the recital. Flash photography is never permitted as it is dangerous and distracting for the performers.

DROP-OFF/PICK UP (Recital Day)
*ALL dancers will be part of our FINALE and must remain for the entirety of the show* (approx. 1 hour)

Our shows will be an hour and 15min or less. Parents will not be able to pick up their dancer until after the program is complete to avoid disruption during the show and to give all the performers a full audience.

Drop Off:

Dancers should arrive 30 minutes prior to their show time fully dressed and ready for the show. Company dancers should arrive 1 hour prior to show time.
Check your dancer in with the DMA staff member at the front of the hallway to the left of the lobby (just past the restrooms). Only volunteers/staff will be permitted to accompany dancers back into the dressing room. Before checking your dancer in, please be sure they have gone to the restroom and leave all belongings with you. Male dancers can change in the lobby bathroom and then a DMA staff member will escort them to join the other male dancers backstage.

Pick Up:

After the show, one parent should make their way to the front of the hallway to the left of the lobby (where they were dropped off) to sign their dancer out.

Practice Videos & Costume Details:

All recital choreography will be finished prior to Spring Break (4/4-4/9). Instructors have already started uploading videos for students to practice with on the DMA Dancer Band. If you have not yet joined Band, you can so do here

Each instructor has an album with videos ‘Instructor Name Recital Videos’.
Costume details for each class will be emailed as well as attached to your costume bag when costumes are handed out. These costume details can also be located in your parent portal after Spring Break – go to your child’s class, select the ‘RESOURCES’ tab, and click ‘VIEW’.

Dance Photos:

Individual dance portraits in recital costumes are available free of charge. You will be able to download your digital negatives from Smug Mug for $1.50.
Dance portraits will be held at the studio the week after recital (5/9-5/14) during your child’s regular class time. Please arrive a few minutes before your class time dressed in costume with hair/makeup done.
