Tech Rehearsal
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, June 6th and Wednesday, June 7th.​ Your dancer will be scheduled either one or both of these evenings depending on the number of dances they are in. See below for exact times and which day you are scheduled for. Absences and failure to be part of Tech Rehearsals may result in not being eligible to perform in the actual performances.

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. Parents/guardians of dancers in 4K through 8th grade must stay with their dancer at the theatre during tech rehearsals. 

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 prefer since we will be taking close-up photos.

Please refer to the Show Information 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, wrinkle free and dance shoes are clean and polished. Families and dancers are responsible for any alterations and care of their costumes and shoes. 

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 during Tech Rehearsal. 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 by Galley Studios. Pictures will take place on the theatre's second level. All dancer's will be part of the group/class photo, but individual photos are optional. We recommend if you are unsure if you would like to buy photos, still have your dancer take them since you can review them on the Galley Studio website 4-6 weeks after showtime to determine if you would like to make a purchase. It's much easier to have the photos and not want them, then it is to miss the opportunity

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

You must fill out a photo form for each costume/class you wish to get a photo from, 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 on the day of photos. Please do not turn them into the BRAVO office as the photographers use the payments to make sure they have the correct name with the correct dancer (this is why an individual form is needed for each dance/costume).

Forms will be available at the dance studio and the day of Tech Rehearsal at the theatre. Every dancer will need one form for every time they are photographed. Galley Studios uses the forms to identify the dancer, and to know what they want ordered for each time they are photographed in each costume. Please take as many forms as they need, each order form is for one costume and one dancer only. 

Since picture orders are sent out directly to home addresses it is so helpful to make sure all info is filled out on the order forms (please don't leave spaces blank). 

 

If you do not want to order on picture day but maybe later online, you do not need to fill anything out because families can locate their dancer on the Galley Studios website once they are ready for viewing, which takes about 4-6 weeks. Ordering on picture day does save money on shipping and handling charges, and gets photos to families faster.

 

Please contact Galley Studios at galleystudio@gmail.com for any photo questions.

*BRAVO cannot provide IOU’s, refunds or exchanges to outside vendors, including Galley Studios.
