NEW RECITAL LOCATION & PROCEDURE THIS YEAR

We are thrilled to bring our students back to the stage this year, presenting "Evelyn Ott School of Dance: 82 years of Excellence" at an all new location - The Kroc Center of Hampton Roads, located in Downtown Norfolk. Due to limited space at this new venue, this year we are treated Act 1 & Act 2 as two unique shows, complete with an intermission to clear the house in between each act. We are doing this to ensure all our families can bring as many friends & family as we can possibly fit into the event space. For both Dress Rehearsal and the Recital we are asking all students to arrive dressed and ready in costume (their first costume if they are in multiple dances). 

Dress Rehearsal is Friday June 3rd. This is a closed rehearsal, but will operate like the full show. Students are to wear costumes. Act 1 dancers are to arrive no later than 4:00 pm. New this year - Professional photos of your dancers will be taken during Dress Rehearsal, both individual and group photos. Pricing and more information to come soon. Act 1 will being at 5:00pm and should last about an hour depending on pictures. Act 2 dancers are to arrive no later than 6:00pm. Act 2 will begin at 6:30 - Act 2 will last about an hour. 

Recital is Saturday June 4th. Act 1 dancers are to arrive by 11:00 AM. The award ceremony for all graduates will start at 11:30 and Act 1 will begin immediately after. Act 1 will last about an hour.
