Dress rehearsal is the week prior to recital at the Harper College Performing Arts Center in Palatine. You will be given the exact day and time for your class's dress rehearsal when you receive your costume in May. Attending the dress rehearsal is mandatory. Students absent from the dress rehearsal will not perform in the recital. Late arrival to the rehearsal constitutes an absence; so please allow extra time to travel to Harper College. Classes will have an allotted amount of time to rehearse his/her dance on stage with the instructor and technical crew. During this time, technicians are queuing lights, instructors are staging the dance and all props and scenery are being set. All dances will run only once, due to the volume of participation in the program. Any repetition of a dance will be for technical reasons only.
