Tech Rehearsals

What’s the purpose?

Tech rehearsals allow us, as the name suggests, work out the technical aspects of the dance, such as making sure the music is clear, the lighting fits the movement, and allowing students to become familiar with the bigger floor dimensions and stage entrances.

We often run dances a few times through to increase the comfort level. This is also a great time to ask any questions that you might have regarding the costume, hair/makeup, etc. Because of the importance of these rehearsals, attendance for all dancers is mandatory.

 

What time/day do I have to be there?

Mandatory Tech Rehearsals are Tuesday, May 31st and Wednesday, June 1st.​ Your dancer will be scheduled either one or both of those days depending on their class(es). See below for exact times and which day you are scheduled for.

Please be at the theatre, dressed, warmed-up and ready to dance at least 10 minutes before your schedule tech rehearsal time. If we are running late, we sincerely apologize. If we are running ahead – it’s a good thing that you’re there early!

After rehearsing on stage, dancers will take individual and class photos with Galley Studios on the theatre's second level. Dancer's will then be free to depart if they are not scheduled for any additional tech rehearsal times.

What should I wear?

You will wear full costume, hair and shoes for tech rehearsal, but only need to wear light make-up if you would like since we will be taking close-up photos.

Please refer to the Costume Description Page for all dancer's costume information.

You should wear the appropriate costume for the dance that’s rehearsing (listed on the Tech order below). All alterations must be done before tech rehearsal. Make sure costumes are in pristine condition, and shoes are clean and polished. 

For Tech Rehearsal & Photos, makeup should be light and “school age appropriate.” Males do not need makeup for Tech Rehearsal (though they must wear makeup for Dress Rehearsal and Shows to not be washed out under the stage lights). No one is required to wear makeup. Your photographs should look like you! As a general guideline, your makeup (or lack thereof) should be what you do daily.

For Tech Rehearsals, we ask that all jewelry, watches, and finger/toe polish be removed. 

What about pictures?

Pictures are taken directly after each dancer's tech rehearsal time onstage, and will take place on the theatre's second level. All dancer's will be part of the group/class photo.

Solos and duets will take their photos prior to their onstage rehearsal time.

You must fill out a photo form and include your payment in order to have your dancer's individual picture taken. Checks are payable to Galley Studio and may be handed directly to the photographers.

Forms are available at the dance studio and day of Tech Rehearsal at the theatre.

*BRAVO cannot provide IOU’s to outside vendors.
