Recital Love Notes

Send a special message backstage to your sweet dancer at the recital! For only $5.00, you will fill out a specially designed card that will be delivered to your dancer during the show!

Let them know how much you love them, how proud you are, and how you can’t wait to celebrate with them after the show! Support making dancer’s dreams come true, as well as someone who means the world to you! Purchase cards at the front desk, at dress rehearsals, or the recitals!

Fletcher Dress Rehearsal Information May 28-30

Parents will arrive in downtown Raleigh and enter through the front lobby towards the left (this is the Fletcher Opera House entrance). You will see HSSOD volunteers set up to answer questions. You should arrive in full recital costume (this is a great time to give your hair/make-up a trial run) and enter the auditorium where volunteers will show you where to sit with your class. Parents are responsible for their children at all times during dress rehearsal. Please do not allow your child to wander unsupervised at any time! This facility is very big and will be a busy place with other events as well. Volunteers will take your children backstage when their class is called.

Once they perform, they will sit with us backstage until we run the finale at the end of the hour. Your child will meet you in the lobby after the finale.

Reminder – if you want lots of close-ups of your child, you can videotape at dress rehearsal. Video cameras or flash photography will not be allowed at any performance as it can be dangerous to the dancers onstage.

  • We will have a professional videographer taping all of the shows if you would like to purchase them. You may get order forms at the studio or at the dress rehearsal.
  • You are welcome to stay and watch as much of our dress rehearsals as you would like. This is a great opportunity for young dancers to see other performances.
  • CLASS MOMS – We will give all Class Moms a backstage tour during dress rehearsals. You will learn everything you need to know. We will have a Class Mom meeting on Tuesday, May 2nd from 6-7pm in Studio 136. You will receive a special volunteer badge, class signs, information and a make-up demonstration. Please try to attend this important meeting!

Thank you so much! We couldn’t do it without you!

Performance Information

Your child should arrive in full recital costume/make-up 45 minutes before their scheduled performance time. You will meet a class mom who will be holding a class sign. Our volunteers will walk them to their dressing room to meet the other class Mom. Due to tight security, you will not be allowed backstage without the Class Mom badge. We want to ensure that everyone who is backstage is supposed to be there. We appreciate your support of this.

  • Please check with your Class Mom to see if there is anything that they might want you to send,. A small bag with a water bottle, an activity or non-messy snacks are fine. Please do not send nail polish, markers or paint sets.
  • During the performance, your child will remain in a backstage dressing room until it is time to perform. At the end of the performance, Class Moms will walk dancers back to the lobby to meet you where they were dropped off. Please send only one parent to meet your child – your fan club can wait at another part of the lobby.
  • Again, there will be no flash photography or videotaping during performances as it can be dangerous to the performers onstage. If you wish to videotape, you are welcome to do it at the dress rehearsal. We will have a professional videographer taping each performance if you are interested in purchasing this, order forms are available at the studio and will be available at dress rehearsals.
  • Recital souvenir t-shirts will be available at the studio at the end of the month

Please feel free to contact us with any questions! We want to make this one of the best days in your child’s life!
