Show Rehearsals

Rehearsals usually begin in November and carry on through to show week in the following March. The dates are published with the show audition form (available later in the year).

The vast majority of rehearsals are held in the studio at:

CYGAMS (Young Gen) – Meteor Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 2RL

  Where we have to use an alternative venue, full details will be sent out with that week’s schedule.

The Schedules for the dancers required to attend each rehearsal are sent out weekly by email, depending on progress.

Dancers are expected to attend all rehearsals for parts cast – including understudy roles.

The last two rehearsals before show week are COMPULSORY for the ENTIRE cast, as are all dates at the Theatre.

Dancers are expected to arrive 20 minutes in advance of the time shown on the schedule in order to warm up before their rehearsal starts.

Formal practice wear should be worn i.e. leotard, tights, ballet shoes (no skirts), with hair in a bun or off the face and no jewellery.

Costume fittings also take place around rehearsals.
