dress rehearsal – Sunday, June 3rd

The dress rehearsal will be at the same location where the recital is being held — the L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center. The theatre is located on the NSU campus at 700 Park Ave in Norfolk.

Once your child is finished with their dances and pictures, at dress rehearsal, they can be picked up from their stage mom.  However, on recital day pickup times are ONLY at intermission and at the end of the show depending on when your child is finished with all dances.

Since the recital is divided into two shows, so then is the dress rehearsal. The two rehearsals are divided up as follows:

11:30am — "Early Show"
Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday classes for 3-5 yr olds and 6-8 yr olds
Pre Company II
Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Companies

Dancers please arrive at 10:15am with hair and makeup on and ready to go in first costume with a cover up overtop. It is not the responsibility of the stage mom to do all the children’s hair and makeup. They will be back stage to keep everyone happy and help change from one costume to another.


4:30pm — "Late Show"
Monday, Wednesday, or Friday classes for 3-5 yr olds, 6-8 yr olds, 8-10 yr olds, and 10-12 yr olds
Teen class dancers
Pre Company I
Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Companies

Dancers please arrive at 3:15pm with hair and makeup on and ready to go in first costume with a cover up overtop. It is not the responsibility of the stage mom to do all the children’s hair and makeup. They will be back stage to keep everyone happy and help change from one costume to another.
