Rise Up! Performances
What is "Rise Up"?

"Rise Up" is the BRAVO Center's Spring Show, which will take place on 

FRIDAY, JUNE 9th & SATURDAY, JUNE 10th, 2023 at 6:00PM at the Al Ringling Theatre in Baraboo, WI.

What’s the purpose?

To have fun, show off all of our hard work and CELEBRATE dancing on stage!

What time and day do I have to be there?
  • The show begins at 6:00pm with theatre doors opening for our guests at 5:30pm.

  • Dancers must be in their assigned areas by 5:30pm each night.
     

  • High Schoolers must check in on the sign-in sheet in dressing areas by 5:30pm. If leaving early, you will need an Early Release Form.
     

  • Unless you have a previously signed Early Release Form on file, dancers must stay the length of the show.

    • This is a safety precaution. If you are debating whether or not your little one will make it the whole show, please fill out an Early Release Form just in case.
      We would rather have these forms on file and not need them than deny your child’s release.
      NOTE: Chaperones have been strictly instructed to not release a child without a signed release form; no exceptions.

Where is my assigned area?

Each class will have an assigned area in the theatre labeled by their class code or song title(s). Volunteer Chaperones are the only adults allowed in the dancer areas. 

Creative Movement (4K & Kindergarten) dancers will stay and sit with their parent/guardian during the show. A parent/guardian will walk them to the backstage door to meet Miss Ona when it's their time to dance. Creative Movement is the second dance to perform, so they will meet backstage when Miss Amy's curtain speech is taking place. After enjoying their performance, from your seat, parent/guardians can meet their dancer at the backstage entrance to escort them back to their seat. Creative Movement only performs this one dance, so dancers are free to leave with their parent/guardian once their performance concludes.

Kindergarten/1st Grade Combo Class dancers will be seated with their parent/guardians during the show. After the Opening number in Act 1 and Palm Reader (duet) in Act 2, parents/guardians will walk dancers to the backstage entrance to meet Ms. Andrea. After enjoying their performance, from your seat, parent/guardians can meet their dancer at the backstage entrance to escort them back to their seat.

Elementary Dancers will be seated with their class and their assigned chaperones.

Middle School Dancers will be seated with their class and their assigned chaperones. Middle School Dancers in multiple classes will sit with the class they perform with first. 

High School Dancers will be in the backstage dressing rooms off of the mainstage along with a chaperone. 

How do I read class codes?

Each class is listed with a "Class Code." This code is determined by which day and what time your dancers class takes place, followed by the grade level and/or style of dance. For example, if you are enrolled in the 2nd and 3rd Grade Trio class on Mondays at 5:30 PM, your class code is "M530 Trio". Tuesday classes are represented by "TU", Wednesdays by "W" and Thursdays by "TH". 

What should I wear?
  • You should wear your appropriate costume (see below), including the style of the hair, shoes, and makeup for each class.

  • Males and females both must wear heavy makeup in order to counteract the lighting ghost effect on the face. 

  • Wear your Rise Up! show T-shirt to cover up your costume. High school dancers can also choose to wear their BRAVO Jackets– keep your costume a surprise for the audience!

Where do I buy tickets?
  • Tickets are now available online at https://www.alringling.org/events

    • Be aware that the theatre's online sales system, Eventbrite, add additional fees as well as sales tax over and above our asking price.

  • Tickets will also be available at the Al Ringling Theatre Box Office during their normal business hours, Tech and Dress Rehearsals, and at the doors prior to performances.

Am I allowed to take photos or videotape?

Flash photography and videotaping during performances is strictly prohibited.

If you would like to purchase a professional DVD, please fill out order form available in the theatre's lobby.

Also, remember to turn all electronics on SILENT, including cell phones, as they are not only distracting to everyone around you (including dancers), but they also interfere with our tech crews' head sets back stage. Thank you!

Can I buy flowers during performances?

Blooms Unfold will be selling flowers in the theatre lobby during performances.

To avoid flowers being sold out, families can pre-order a bouquet that will be available for pick-up during performances by calling Blooms Unfold at 608-448-4757.
