Follow the yellow brick road to our 8th Annual Summer Finale:

Dressing Room Volunteers

Volunteer sign up details were emailed out.  It is recommended that you choose which show you would like to watch and then volunteer at the other show.  Sometimes it helps to check with other parents in your dancer’s class so you can make sure there is someone to help backstage at each show.

June 7th Mandatory Rehearsal

We look forward to seeing all the Finale dancers on Friday, June 7th at Orange Lutheran as we rehearse our special closing act number for our 2019 Finale “There’s No Place Like OCPAA”. It is very important all students participating in the recital attend because we will be rehearsing the closing number act and teaching the dancers how to enter and exit the stage safely and efficiently.

**This is not a rehearsal for your class dances.  This is only for a special dance at the end of each show. You do not need to bring your class costumes. Students can wear black shorts, black leotards, crop tops or tank tops and either jazz shoes, ballet shoes or hip hop shoes.  The Finale shirts will be either distributed at the studio prior to June 7th or on June 7th at the rehearsal and they may be worn over whatever top they have on.

All students will be checked in by parents directly to their assigned dressing room.  The room your child is assigned to will be sent out prior to June 7th along with additional check-in details.  Please plan to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your call time. For most students this will be 4:40 pm for the 5:00-6:30 pm rehearsal.  The two Voice classes will have a special rehearsal from 6:30-7:00 and the Dad’s Dance participants will rehearse from 7:00-7:30 (this includes the kids).

We will need helpers to stay with the recital students in the dressing rooms.  If you would like to help you can sign up here:
