School & Conservatory: Children & Youth Concert Dress Rehearsal Schedules

Dear C&Y Concert Parents, 

Please read this email carefully for information regarding the upcoming Dress Rehearsal Days, including the exact times your child needs to be here on each day and the procedures they will need to follow. This schedule is also a close approximation to the final show order, although it is not final.  Any updates to the show order will be sent out to parents after the dress rehearsals.


The dress rehearsal for the Little Movers/Lower School Show will now be held at our Rockville location.  All other dress rehearsals will remain at our Strathmore location.

Conservatory Managing Director, Sarah Ewing will be sending out detailed information about Select and Conservatory Ballet Repertory for the C&Y Concert later today.  Tickets for the shows are not currently on sale but will go on sale soon. An email notification will be sent out once tickets are available for purchase.

Thank you,

Kaitlin Madzelan

C&Y Concert Manager

Dress Rehearsal Procedures

Dress Rehearsals will take place at Strathmore in Studio 405. On Dress Rehearsal days, PLEASE ARRIVE WITH YOUR HAIR AND MAKE-UP DONE -- Pictures are taken on dress rehearsal days. This is also the day your child will get his/her final costume fitting. Fittings may also happen prior to this day during class time. NO PERSONAL PHOTOS OR VIDEOS may be taken during dress rehearsal. Professional photos will be taken after their class' run through and made available for purchase. 
Parking: Free parking is available at Strathmore on Sundays in the Grosvenor Metro Parking Garage and on Tuckerman Lane. There is ample free parking at our Rockville location for the Little Movers/Lower School rehearsal.
Rehearsal: Rehearsal runs approximately from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Please refer to the schedule links above for your child's arrival, rehearsal, and departure times. Upon arrival, please sign your child in on the 4th Floor to Studio 402 at Strathmore and Studio C at Rockville where a staff member will put on his/her costume. At the designated time, CityDance staff will escort your child’s class to Studio 405 (Strathmore) or Studio B (Rockville) for rehearsal. 
Photos: After the rehearsal, CityDance staff will escort your child’s class to the 3rd Floor, Studio 304 (Strathmore) or Studio A (Rockville) for photos. PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN STUDIOS 304 or B DURING PHOTOS. They are however allowed to follow the group and fix any stray hairs, etc. in the hallway before pictures are taken. 
Costume: After photos, your child’s class will be escorted back to Studio 402 or C to take off his/her costume. Students DO NOT take their costumes home with them. The costumes are property of the CityDance Costume Shop and are not to be taken home following dress rehearsal or the performance. There is no eating or drinking while your child is in costume. Please help us keep all costumes in good condition. 
Departure: At the designated time, please pick up your child from Studio 402 or C. 

Costume, Make-Up, and Hair Needs

ALL STUDENTS SHOULD ARRIVE WITH HAIR AND MAKE-UP DONE! Please follow the link below for information regarding hair and make-up needs for the dress rehearsals and performances.
Information regarding costumes needs for dress rehearsals and performances (including undergarments, special requirements for costumes and guidelines for hair style) will be sent out via email in early April.

Attendance Reminder 

As the Concert approaches, we would like to remind you and your child about the importance of attendance during this final stretch of classes. In order to ensure a successful dress rehearsal, tech rehearsal and performance, we are asking that your child please attend all classes from now until the end of the year. If your child cannot dance that day --injury, cold, etc. -- we ask that he/she please still attend class and learn by watching. Class time is the only time for teachers to finish and rehearse each piece.
