It is very important that everyone attends this rehearsal. The backstage logistics are very different at this venue and will be difficult to maneuver if you are not at the rehearsal. This could be the difference of your child making it on stage in time for their performance!!

Show 2 1:30-3:00pm


Ballet & Variety 3:00pm


**These are NOT dress rehearsals. Please wear APPROPRIATE DANCE CLOTHES AND DANCE SHOES and costume hair pieces.

  • We will open the show with our ballet segment. There will be a 20 minute intermission after the ballet portion before starting the variety section of the show.




**You should have received an email telling you which show your child is in! This info is also posted on the Bulletin Board across from the AAD Main Office!


**Show 1 and Show 2 should last approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes each.


**In order to clear out for upcoming shows, we ask that you leave immediately after your show has concluded, as other dancers will be arriving.
