Studio & Dress Rehearsal Information

Wall Down Week at the Dance Spectrum, May 17th - 23rd.

No Costumes - Come to the studio at your regular class time, regular dance clothes, hair and shoes

Starting Saturday, May 17th, the wall that divides studios #2 & #3 will be down and the dancers will practice at their normal class time, in a larger space similar to the stage at Sheas (44’ X 30’).

This is an exciting week for the dancers and teachers as each class will have the opportunity to practice in the ”big room” without the mirrors and in front of the other dancers in the building.

**When the dancers are not dancing or changing costumes, they will be in the theater watching the dress rehearsal in designated seats.
