“Once Upon a Time” will be held at Journey Church on Saturday, June 17th @ 6:00pm tickets required. Journey Church is located at: 6225 Lake Gray Blvd. Jacksonville, FL 32244

Dress Rehearsal

Full dress rehearsal will be held at  Journey Church on Saturday morning, June 17th. Please arrive in your first costume with hair and make-up done at 10:00am. Dancers will be called to stage when it is time for their dance. We will be finished around 12:30pm. Parent’s please plan to stay with your dancer during the rehearsal.


- Dress Rehearsals tend to be long. Please be prepared. We recommend you send a dry snack and bottled water with your dancer. Please don't pack juice or anything that can stain their costume.  

- Students are asked to sit in the audience with their class and wait until they are called to the stage. This will enable them to see the performance, since they will remain back stage during the entire Recital on Saturday afternoon.

- Dress Rehearsal is just that, students need to arrive in stage make up with hair done. Dancers should have their proper dance shoes and tights along with their costume. 


Recital Day, Back stage & Dressing Rooms 

Dancers will need to arrive 30 minutes before the recital in their first costume with their hair and make-up done.

- To ensure the safety of our dancers, at no point in the Recital will the dancers be permitted to sit in the audience. They must remain back stage during the entire performance.

-  Students will need to be checked into their assigned dressing room before the Recital. Parents will receive a sign-in slip that they must present at the end of Recital, when picking up their child. Please be prepared to wait in line.

-  At no point will friends or extended family be allowed in the dressing rooms or backstage (plan to meet in the lobby after the recital). Please note: If there is an issue with a child during the Recital the parent's will be paged.
