All Children's Cast participants must attend all their scheduled rehearsals (listed below) in addition to maintaining consistent attendance at regular weekly classes. Each Children's Cast participant has one in-studio rehearsal and one dress rehearsal.*

Dancers who miss any scheduled rehearsal or who have poor attendance at regular weekly classes may be asked to withdraw from the performance.
