Rehearsals for the 2017 Recitals will be held on each weekday afternoon in the week before the recitals, Tuesday May 30th through Friday June 2nd. In addition, we have added 2 rehearsal dates this year on Monday May 22nd and Thursday May 25th, in order to accommodate all our dancers and ensure they have time to rehearse on stage.
rehearsal time requirement for your dancer
An email will be sent to each family in April detailing each dancer's exact rehearsal time during rehearsal week (Your dancer is not required at rehearsals each and every afternoon - only as specified in your April email). Your dancer's rehearsal time may or may not coincide with their usual class time.
Regularly scheduled classes during rehearsal week will not be held at Downtown Dance Factory as all staff will be at the theater supervising and rehearsing the dances.

199 Chambers St., between Greenwich and West Sts.
enter the main lobby of the college off Chambers St - TPAC is to the left
Rehearsal is NOT drop-off for kindi-aged dancers (preschool classes).
please no eating or drinking in the theater (water excepted). For dancers with later rehearsal times, please send snacks and we will take the dancers to the adjacent Lower Lobby to eat.
Please plan to excuse your child from any other regular commitments that might clash with the rehearsal - it is our only rehearsal on stage and if anyone is absent, it compromises both their individual performance and also that of the entire class. Students will be required to attend rehearsal in order to perform in the recital.
Dancers should wear their Downtown Dance Factory uniform. Please DO NOT wear your recital costume to rehearsal.
please email or call us at 212.962.1800 if you can volunteer during your dancer's rehearsal time.
