Dress Rehearsal June 3

We have set aside Friday June 3 to rehearse our spring recital, “Destination: Dance.” As usual, attendance for this rehearsal is mandatory for all dancers! Please arrive on-time with all costume pieces, shoes, and hair products.

A dress rehearsal allows instructors to see “the whole picture” as dancers perform on-stage in the same hair and costume that they will in the recital itself.

WHEN: Friday June 3, 3:30–7:00pm (time blocks for each class TBA)
WHERE: Coronado High School Performing Arts Center auditorium, 650 D Avenue Coronado, CA 92118
