Rehearsal’s will begin the weekend of September 30th.  Rehearsal times will vary based on what roles or selections you are in, and will be determined prior to audition weekend.  These are general guidelines of rehearsal times; Friday evenings 6:30 – 9:00 pm (possibly earlier if scheduled classes are not filled), Sunday 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  Reminder that the majority of the dancers will not need to be at the rehearsal for the entire time frame.  This just gives you an idea of the possibilities.
