Friday May 17, 6:00 pm

Call Time: 5:45 PM

All dancers should report to the orchestra room (door is directly off the parking lot and will be marked) at Beachwood High School no later than 5:45pm. Here you can meet your class chaperone and help your child get into their costume. The chaperones will escort you and your child directly to the auditorium for the rehearsal. Our desire is to move as quickly and efficiently as possible, so your timely arrival is much appreciated! The rehearsal begins promptly at 6:00.

  • At time of arrival, please ensure hair is done, any makeup has been applied, and if applicable, leotards and/or tights are already on - no underpants please. Costume elements such as tutus and ballet slippers should NOT be put on until the dancers are in the orchestra room.

Thrive Arts Center staff will give a brief outline of the afternoon once everyone is promptly in their seats in the auditorium.

Food and Drink: Beachwood High School does not allow food or drink (water included) in the foyer and auditorium. There are water fountains back stage for thirsty little ones. Bathrooms are close by, back stage.

notes on costume:

You are encouraged to have your child NOT wear underwear under their tights for class, as a way to prepare them for the performance during which they will be asked to only wear their leotard/costume and tights.

notes on makeup:

We do not require dancers to apply makeup for this recital, your delightful dancer’s expressive faces will light up the stage! If your family chooses to do so, we ask that you be conservative with the amount of product applied and limit it to the following:

  • lipstick, mascara, blush

  • Please refrain from the use of: eyeliner, eyeshadow, fake eyelashes, and all forms of glitter.

Notes on hair:

We want to see your little one’s precious face as they are performing. Therefore, please make sure hair is neatly pulled back away from the face and secured to stay in place for the length of the recital.

Preferred styles for Leap ‘N Learn students: classic bun or french twist.
