Dress Rehearsal Checklist

April 12th is a fun but FULL day. With everyone's cooperation, we can manage the chaos in an organized way. As a parent, we need you to:

  •  Provide Attire Basics for your dancer (see section below)
  • Be prompt! It is crucial we are able to begin each section on time, and a dancer who is late even by a few minutes may miss their only chance to practice depending on the show order. Arrive a few minutes earlier than your scheduled time.
  • Use entrance B2 and enter the Building B Worship Center from the back. Sit wherever you like, with your dancer.
  • Bring your dancer to their assigned dress rehearsal time already dressed in their attire basics & their (first) costume, with their hair performance-ready (light makeup optional).
  • Bring their ballet shoes.  Please do not have your dancer wear their ballet shoes outside - it ruins their shoes and tracks dirt onto the stage which is dangerous for the dancers. They should wear regular shoes and change once at dress rehearsal. Slip-ons are great!
  • Plan to stay for the duration of your dancer's scheduled rehearsal time. You may be finished early.
  • Your dancer may sit with you in the worship center until called by the teacher to come forward and line up with their class.
  • Please take excellent care of the costume until after performances. There are no extras if something happens to your dancer's costume.
  • Please no food or drink in the Worship Center. Teachers are responsible for cleaning up after this day, and you can help us tremendously by avoiding crumbs or spills in the worship center.
  • Please remain as quiet as possible while teachers are working with classes as they have very limited time with each one. They will answer questions as they can, but please realize they may not be able to do so right away if their class is rehearsing.
  • If your dancer has only one performing class, you are free to go once they have been released from the stage. If your dancer has more than one, they need to change their costume in the designated area (a studio upstairs; look for the signs) and return as quickly as possible to the Worship Center to wait to rehearse their next dance.
  • No regular season classes will meet after dress rehearsal day, so keep practicing at home! Encourage your dancers to review what they remember of their choreography frequently during that timeframe. (Story ballet participants will have a separate rehearsal and class schedule to follow until those performances occur.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Is dress rehearsal mandatory?

This is the only chance your dancer has to practice in their costume on the stage. For young dancers, the setting is overwhelming and understanding entrances/exits and transitions is only possible in person with other groups present. A missing dancer makes it more confusing for all others in their class. If a dancer has multiple classes per week and those classes fall in different performances, they need to attend all applicable dress rehearsal times.

If you know of an unavoidable conflict with dress rehearsal, please communicate it by email at the earliest possible moment. Dress rehearsal cannot be altered or rescheduled, but knowing ahead of time still helps your child's teacher plan.

Where is the dress rehearsal?

Performances are in Building B of Paramount! The dress rehearsal will be held there as well. You will enter B2, and go downstairs and into the Worship Center on your right.

Do parents stay at dress rehearsal?

YES (for most levels). It is important that every Lower School student has an adult responsible for them at all times. It is helpful for parents of Intermediate School to stay as well, to help your dancer if needed and be ready to take them as soon as they are finished. Teachers and volunteers cannot be responsible for your child during dress rehearsal.

Do we have to buy the costume?

See the Costume Fees section on this page -- most costumes are now covered in monthly tuition! Some exceptions apply.

Do we have to provide any specific attire for our dancer?

YES. Every dancer is required to have the appropriate Attire Basics for their level. See that section below.

Do we have classes after dress rehearsal day?

The last regular class day Friday, April 11th. 

Classes are not held during the actual performance week. The season concludes with the recital performances. Story ballet participants have a separate class and rehearsal schedule to follow until those performances are concluded.

How do I help my dancer practice at home?

In the Parent Portal under Shared Files, you will find the music for your dancer's piece(s). Regular practice at home will really help your child, especially if they can practice immediately after class while it is fresh in their mind. Consistent class attendance will help them feel confident so that they don't miss instruction and have to catch up. If they feel overwhelmed because they can't remember their whole dance, encourage them to practice just the parts they do know.

What about a video to watch?

Some teachers may choose to utilize the BAND app for sharing choreography video. They will only do this near the end of the semester after the dance is fully taught in class, to avoid confusion about changes. Each teacher reserves the right to decide whether or not they feel this approach is beneficial for their teaching style, class, and specific choreography. If your teacher creates a Band group for the class, you will be notified by email.



This applies to Sweet Peas, Buttercups, Daisies, Bluebonnets, Lilies, Lilacs, and Irises.

Poppies and Sunflowers costumes are covered in a full season of Perform + tuition as well; if a dancer participates in only part of the season of this class, they may owe a partial costume fee.

Tulips, Violets, and Orchids costumes are often either reused from previous performances or purchased new but retained for reuse. Therefore costume costs have not been factored into tuition calculations for these levels. Costumes may be available for purchase if desired - please ask via email if interested.

Boys must purchase a pair of black dance pants (as at the link below) and Doxa purchases a shirt. In most cases, this shirt is new and theirs to keep, but if we are using a shirt from our size/color inventory we will let you know. Boys shirts are one of the few items we can take back as a donation if you do not want to keep it.


The items below can be found on our new Nimbly site, at Razzle Dazzle locally (34th and Bell), or online at discountdance.com (if shopping at Discount Dance online, use studio code 78113 to support Doxa!) Please ensure your dancers have what they need before dress rehearsal!

Female Attire Basics

Tights: You can order Revolution tights through Doxa's Nimbly site. Any clean pair of full-footed ballet tights are acceptable (even if not purchased through Doxa). See a note on color in our dress code policy.
Ballet Shoes: All female dancers need ballet shoes similar in color to their tights. Please cut your dancer's elastic drawstring on their shoes to 1.5-2" in length, knot it to the desired tightness, and tuck the strings into the shoes. This gives a streamlined appearance and avoids the mishaps that happen when bows come untied.
Foundation Leotard: A nude camisole leotard or body liner to wear underneath costumes, for modesty in dressing rooms, hygiene purposes, and possible stage costume mishaps. Required for Daisies and up.

Male Attire Basics

Black Dance Pants: The specific pair linked at the button on the photo (same as last year) is preferred.
Tall Black Socks: All boys need tall black socks to wear with their shoes. Older boys may wear black tights if preferred.
Ballet Shoes: All boys need black ballet shoes.
Undergarments: All boys are encouraged to wear a brief-cut dance belt or compression shorts under their costume rather than regular underwear.


Please consider getting that cute summer bob AFTER recital! Hairpieces will not work well with hair that doesn't go into a bun.

For female dancers Sweet Peas to Lilies/Lilacs, hair should be worn in a ballet bun at the crown of the head. If you need help, here is a good YouTube video tutorial for short toddler hair. Use hairspray or a hair gel, plenty of bobby pins, and for a nice finished look, a hairnet wrapped over the bun itself. Bring extra bobby pins for securing headpieces. Don't wait until recital to try it - every class is a chance to get better at doing your dancer's ballet bun!

For female dancers Poppies/Irises through Orchids, hair should be worn in a french twist with the tucked side to the left. Dancers should work to be adept at making these hairstyles themselves. Practice at home and for classes! French Twists should be slick with no fly-aways and well-secured. Always have plenty of bobby pins on hand as well as a hairnet, ponytail holders, and hairspray.

Male dancers should wear their hair nicely combed with gel to help it stay put.


We leave it up to the parents as to whether or not they have their child wear makeup. We do suggest a little bit, because the bright lights can "wash out" faces. However, this is not a massive auditorium and it is not necessary to wear tons of makeup.

JEWELRY, etc.:

Please refrain from using body or hair glitter as it can be distracting. No jewelry, except small stud earrings in a neutral color (silver, gold or clear rhinestone) if desired. Check for watches, rings, and friendship bracelets which are easy to forget to take off. We highly recommend your dancer leaves these items at home.

Please try to avoid temporary tattoos, face paint, or hair color in the weeks prior to recital - you never know what may not wash all the way off! Any permanent tattoos must be covered with makeup or a bandage for all performances. Permanent jewelry should be wrapped with a bandage or removed. Nail polish should be clear or neutral tones only.


Please do not let your dancer wear their ballet shoes outside! This makes them wear out faster, but also tracks extra dirt onto the stage and studio floors, which is dangerous for both themselves and for other dancers.
