Showcase Directions and School Details
A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis (KPAC)
It's Showtime!! I'm so excited as I know the dancers are too for the Showcase on Sunday, June 16th. Again, thank you for sharing your Father's Day with us but I know ALL the Dads will feel blessed and receive a smile while watching their dancer perform! We will have a special Father's Day giveaway before and after Intermission. Please know that ALL the answers to your questions should be on our website under the Showcase InfoTab at DanceDreamsStudio.com. There you will find the walk thru time schedule for your dancer (If they aren't listed for some Compt Team members / none for Mousercise) that means no walkthrough.) as well as the Timeline for our Showcase starting at 4:00 pm. Have your dancer in the cafeteria/dressing area 5 SONGS PRIOR (15 minutes) to meet their leader to take them backstage. Meet them immediately afterward.
****Dream, Dreamette, and Teen Perf Co check in 3 songs prior with Kara. We can't page dancers who aren't at their meeting area. Please make sure to look at the timeline to see the schedule so you'll know the song to head to dressing room that is 5 songs prior or 15 minutes before their approximate time given in the timeline!
Arrive first for the walk thru rehearsal so your dancer can get oriented with the stage for their routines. Unless you feel you have time after this walk thru, please arrive in hair, makeup but no costume yet. (Only jazz or ballet shoes to rehearse.)
There is plenty of parking at the school and went you arrive and park, note additional parking further down from the school and beside the church.
Dressing Rooms - Enter through the doors and there on the left is the cafeteria/dressing room for all dancers except Dream, Dreamettes and Teen Performance. Those dancers will change under the stage area. Boys can either change in the bathroom or we have a Boys Dressing Room located off of the lobby area located at the back of the auditorium. Look for the sign.
DO NOT ENTER in the blocked entrance across from the cafeteria/dressing room. This is for our children only to enter the stage area.
LOBBY AREA is located further down the hall and on the right bringing you to the back of the auditorium. There is reserved seating in the first 3 rows for our Senior Dancer's family and friends.
Additional Programs are for sale for $1.00 but each dancer should have received a form with a ticket attached to receive their free program.
Flowers are available for Pre-sale (see email) and additional but limited flowers (and bears) will also be available.
NO refreshments will be served because the school has restrictions for food and drink in the auditorium that includes fines! You can have drink/food in the dressing area but please be courteous and cleanup after yourself in the dressing area....there are costumes that can get stained and damaged! Thank you!
Have at least one bottled WATER FOR YOUR DANCER!
The Showcase starts at 4:00 pm with a 10 minute Intermission from 5:20-5:30 pm. The Showcase will be over at approximately 6:45 where we will announce our Best All-Around Dancers and honor our Seniors.

Showcase EARLY Walkthrough Schedule - June 16th AL Brown
For this walkthrough your dancer needs to be in hair and makeup but NOT their costume. They can wear shorts and an open necked shirt so it can easily be pulled over their head to not mess up their hair and makeup changing into costume. They will meet in costume later on 5 songs prior to their dance.(See Showcase Timeline) Also, just wear ballet or jazz shoes for the walkthrough…no tap shoes except for the show.
Please note the time to meet the dancers in the cafeteria/dressing room (unless specified backstage) to line them up and get them backstage ready at the walk thru time. (15 minutes) They only need jazz or ballet shoes and gymnastics is barefooted. Remind parents that during the show (starts at 4:00) to meet 15 minutes (see timelines posted everywhere on walls) or 5 songs prior to their performance and then to meet back in the dressing room after they perform. Thank you for noting as well if anyone else needs assistance is helping line up dancers and checking the show for who is next.
Team work makes the dream work!
