Yates Rehearsal Times
Attached is a rehearsal schedule for this week at the Yates. It includes solo and duo day time spots as well as group rehearsal times. If you are still in need of a rehearsal time for your solo, please let me know immediately and we will try and get one schedule.
Yellow Highlighted Groups Mean Costumes are ready to go home!! Please be sure and read about shoes...don't buy new...dye shoes or buy/borrow second hand. Look on facebook vandance page. Low left part straightened pony is there own hair...not a hair piece!! No shimmer tights! All tights are footed unless it specifies footless!!
If you do not need your time, let us know immediately so we can give up the spot to someone else.
PLEASE BE AWARE:
I apologize that some of the younger students are scheduled late, however we lost one of our rehearsal days due to a concert being held in the Theatre on Tuesday evening. The schedule is tight! We want to schedule kids at times that don't conflict with regular classes as we need the studio time.
These Yates rehearsals are NOT in costume, hair or make-up. These are blocking rehearsals for staging purposes. Regular dance clothes and shoes are required.
Arrive 10 minutes early and sit quietly in the audience.
Each and every year we have trouble with noise from students and parents in the audience making noise and distracting the kids. I ask you please sit way at the top of the Theatre, quietly. The teachers have every right to ask people to step out of the theatre. The kids have worked far to hard to not get a proper blocking rehearsal.
There are regular dance classes all week and we NEED this time with the students as we are still in cleaning mode and need to have classes this week. PLEASE ATTEND REGULAR CLASSES AND YATES REHEARSALS
Parents are responsible to bring all solo/duo props.
You may wear your solo costumes however this is not a requirement. The purpose of Yates rehearsal is to stage the dance.
Plans are in the works for costume rehearsals for both groups and solos and duos. Dates to come immediately!
Please be practicing your jazz and tap exam material while we are in festival mode. Do not let it go!

We often get questions about what the various types of dance are. To help with some of the inquiries we have prepared a guide which describes the various types of dance. You can access the document by clicking here or by contacting the studio for more information.
