We are aware that it is more convenient for siblings to perform in the same show and every effort is made to accommodate for this, but it may not be possible for each and every family. Running time for the show is approximate. We cannot take requests for preferred show time.

Schedule for March 15
You will drop off and sign in your student with their class in the main lobby/atrium of Shorewood High School for a rehearsal prior to the show they are performing in so they can practice and become acclimated to the theatre and stage experience. Students will watch the rehearsal and see their peers performing during this run through. During the actual performance they will be in supervised until it is time for their dance. After they perform they will move back to the supervised area where they will wait until the end of the show. Volunteers are with them at all times and we’ll provide quiet activities to keep students occupied. You'll pick up your child when the show is done. Please be patient during the Sign-Out process, we want to make sure each child is picked up by the correct family and this takes some time!
We do not require special costumes to be purchased. We do ask that your child wear something that doesn’t overwhelm their body so that the audience sees them and not the outfit. Safe dance clothes that they cannot trip over, hair neatly back, and no accessories work best. No wings, tiaras, rings, capes, crowns, wands, enormous princess gowns, etc. All classes perform barefoot except Pre-Ballet and all Ballet classes.
Please do not send valuables or food with your child. CDC will provide snacks: baby carrots, bananas, string cheese, pretzels, and water.
If your child has any allergies or special needs that we should be aware of, please inform your teacher or email firstname.lastname@example.org right away.
This is the order classes will be performing.
