Dress Rehearsal, Showtimes & Class Assignments

Dress rehearsal times and simple costume items that families will need to provide are listed on the attached documents. Please note that all rehearsals will take place at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center.



Please note:

  • Dress rehearsal takes place at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center
  • Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your rehearsal time
  • A parent/guardian should stay with their dancer during rehearsal. Each class will be scheduled for a 15 minute time slot and you will not need to stay longer than your assigned time.
  • Dancers are free to leave after their rehearsal but are welcome to stay and watch

Costume Assignments

Dancers may be asked to provide simple, classic items such as a t-shirt of a certain color, jeans, leotards, tights and shoes to accompany their costume or to serve as a base layer.



What time will my child need to arrive at the theater on show day?
All dancers should arrive 45 minutes before their show time.

Do I have to pick up my child in between shows if they are performing in all three shows?
If your child is in a class that is scheduled to be part of all three shows, please know that they are welcome to stay at the theater between shows or they can leave and return to the SMPAC at least 45 minutes before their next show. There will be adult supervision for any dancers who chooses to stay between show. Please make sure to pack plenty of healthy food, snacks and water.

Are parents allowed to be in the theater during dress rehearsal?
Yes! Since the time frame is so short parents are welcome to stay with their child during the rehearsal.

Can we stay and watch other classes once our dress rehearsal is done?
Yes! You and your child(ren) are welcome to stay and watch as much of the rehearsal as you’d like.

Are the seats in the theater assigned?
No. Seating is first come first serve and the doors will open about 30 minutes before each show.

Can we take photos/videos during the performance?
Yes! You can take photos and videos during the showcase as long as you are not disturbing others around you.

Will there be any professional photos taken of the classes in the show?
This year we are not hiring a photographer to take a photo of each class, however, we will pause after each dance has finished on stage during dress rehearsal so that parents can take a group photo. Sorry, we won’t be able to take the time for individual dancers photos on stage.

Does my child need to have their costume and hair a certain way for dress rehearsal?
Yes! Please make sure your child comes dressed in their costume for their dress rehearsal and that their hair is also set the way their instructors has asked. Dress rehearsal is not just to practice the dance under the stage lights. It is also to make sure that any costume, hair and prop choices are secure and will not be a distraction to the dancer.
