Dress rehearsal is mandatory for all dancers. This is the only opportunity to perform the dance onstage with full costume, hair, and makeup, before the recital. This year's Dress Rehearsals will take place during the week of June 3rd, however per Hazlet BOE all dates are tentative. Specific Dress Rehearsal schedules will be sent home with each dancer in May, but until then please keep the weeks of May 28th and June 3rd free.
