If you have a dancer in one of these classes, we need your help!! If you haven't already signed up to volunteer please email if you're able to help on one of the nights. Dancers can't be backstage without a parent volunteer. If everyone helps ONE night we will be able to fill all the open spots. The recital is only successful if we have volunteers!! 

     STUDENT PRODUCTION   
      INFORMATION SHEET

Please be sure to review the 2014 Student Production Information Sheet.

                       THURSDAY, APRIL 24

Dancers should come to the Ashland High School Auditorium in their costume and go to their assigned dressing rooms. Dress rehearsal is a complete run through of the entire recital line up so dancers will practice their dance on stage wearing your costume. Dancers need to stay with their group until they are called to the stage. All dancers need to be at the auditorium in their dressing area by 5:30 pm with their costume on and your hair and make-up done. All dressing room areas for the dancers are located down the hallways on both sides of the auditorium. Pam from Focus Photography will be taking pictures at the dress rehearsal so make sure your hair is fixed! We estimate that dress rehearsal and recital nights will end between 8:0-8:30 pm. Parents and friends will not be allowed to watch the dress rehearsal unless you are scheduled to help with a class.
