REHEARSAL NORWALK HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
Friday, May 31st
The Superstars do not run a full costume dress rehearsal; therefore students do Not need to wear costumes for this rehearsal. Students will wear their teal studio t-shirt and black pants, shorts, or capris. Participants should sit in the auditorium and wait until their class is called. When their class is called, students report to the lobby outside the auditorium doors with the appropriate shoes and any props (baton, poms, etc...) in hand. Combination class students will need to bring both tap and jazz/ballet shoes backstage with them. Once the combo class has completed their first routine, students will change their shoes backstage for the second routine. Students in multiple classes and/or combination classes, please review the schedule carefully to determine which shoes your student will need first. Once the students are finished with all their routines, they can be picked in the lobby outside the auditorium and are free to go.
