Dress Rehearsal is the Best!
Written by Erin Sforza on June 5, 2018

It is my favorite time of year at Dance Connection…Recital Time!! Soon we’ll be setting up at Holy Trinity for Dress Rehearsal Week and welcoming literally thousands of people into the auditorium to enjoy our wonderful students showing off a year of hard work.

Dress Rehearsal is a big part of getting everything set, and I absolutely love watching all of our little stars take their first steps on stage and hear the applause after they finish up. There is so much going on during Dress Rehearsal week but my favorite part is being able to take photos and video of our dancers. Sometimes it can be more entertaining than recital as they become familiar with new surroundings, and every year there are a few who realize that they REALLY like the spotlight which is always fun to watch!

While backstage, you’ll also have photos taken of your star in costume and those photos will be available on our website about 2 weeks after the recital. It’s amazing to see how much they grow up from year to year in their recital photos.

We also have a Reception Desk set up as you enter the auditorium where you can purchase snacks, stars, and tickets and we will be there to answer questions that you may have. You may also get a peek at our Raffle Baskets in the lobby!

Dress Rehearsal is less than a week away! Are you ready!!??
