Below is important logistical information for your dancer for next weekend’s Dress Rehearsal (Friday) and TFAD Recital (Saturday)PLEASE READ the entire email, and see Miss Paula at the front desk if you have any remaining questions.

The TFAD Recital is completely SOLD OUT. No tickets will be sold at the door. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. No one will be allowed into the Auditorium without a physical ticket.

– Dancers should arrive at the Lebanon High School auditorium at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 2 for Dress Rehearsal. Please do not be late so that we can begin promptly, and get everyone home sooner.

– Look for our TFAD Helpers upon arrival! They will be wearing red TFAD t-shirts, and will be located in the hallway just east of the auditorium doors. They will escort your dancer backstage.

– Dancers are to arrive in costume, with hair and makeup complete. Students in multiple classes should arrive wearing their first listed costume (a TFAD Recital line-up is available here). No nail polish, please. Dancers may wear Recital/competition earrings only. Please make sure your dancer has all costumes, dance shoes, extra tights and accessories. Dancers will not be permitted on stage if they are missing part of their costume.

– Parents of dancers in multiple classes will need to stay at Lebanon High School for costume changes. This only applies to dancers who will need help changing costumes – older dancers may not need a parent to help them. Please designate ONE parent for costume changes, as space is limited backstage.  A separate email will be sent soon with more information regarding costume changes.

– During Dress Rehearsal, the auditorium will be open ONLY to those parents who’s children have costume changes. The parent must check in at the auditorium door with a TFAD Helper to gain entry. Only one parent per dancer, please. Parents must remain in the back section of the auditorium, since our photographers will be using the front.

 We kindly ask that parents do not post videos or photos of Dress Rehearsal on social media.

5 p.m. – Students ages 11 & up
