School and Conservatory: C&Y Tech Rehearsal and Show Day Information

Please read the following information carefully so you and your child have all the information you need for Technical and Perfromance days.

On these days please remember to bring only what you need. Leave all jewelry and unnecessary items at home. There will be over 600 children moving in and out of the building during Concert weekend. We would also encourage writing your child's name in all of his/her dance shoes and belongings.

We are extremely excited for the upcoming performances and cannot wait to see all of our wonderful students on stage!

Dressing Room Assignments

Follow the links below for all dressing room assignments. Each student is assigned to one dressing room for the entire weekend and should report directly to his/her dressing room on tech and show days. For those who are unfamiliar with our Strathmore location, please bring your child to CityDance's front desk in the 3rd floor Education Center where a staff member can direct you to the proper dressing room location.

C&Y 2017 Dressing Room Assignments: The Dreaming Tree

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOUR CHILD STAY IN HIS/HER ASSIGNED DRESSING ROOM. If there is a problem with your child's dressing room you must communicate it to the Concert Manager, Kaitlin Madzelan, who can authorize a change if necessary. During the rehearsals and shows, if your child needs to leave the dressing room for any reason, he/she must check in with the CityDance dressing room staff before leaving. Once the show begins, it doesn't stop, and CityDance staff must be able to find all students as quickly and easily as possible to ensure the smooth running of the show.
