All dancers will participate in a Grand Finale number. Dancers will wear their last costume in which they perform in, for this special event. Practices for this number will take place during regular class times and at the beginning of dress rehearsal.  Students should report to the auditorium and will be called up onstage to rehearse the Finale upon arrival for rehearsal.  Students are to report to the changing/waiting area upon arrival for the recital. At least one adult will be with your child at all times.  Please talk to your children about exhibiting good behavior, following directions, and the importance of their role in a successful Recital.
