Tribal Garden 2018 Rehearsal Schedule: Please note that there is one Sunday rehearsal in addition to our other rehearsals, this is considered an extra rehearsal and does not count in the policy regarding missing rehearsals. There is also a different time schedule for this rehearsal so please look closely! Feel free to ask Lacey any questions!
In addition to our scheduled weekend rehearsals we will also have a Pep Rally. Thursday, May 10th from 6:30pm-8:30pm where we will run the show in it's entirety. It is preferred that all performers make the Pep rally but if you must miss, this does not count towards missed rehearsals.
Both the Sunday Rehearsal and Pep Rally will only be $5 per dancer (cash only please).
NEW THIS YEAR! Rehearsals will be during the week! We know many of you have busy schedules and it is difficult clearing your weekends to prepare for our Gala so we thought putting them before/after your technique classes could help in making it easier for you to participate!
Monday: April 2nd,9th,16th, 23rd, 30th, and May 7th
8:30pm American Tribal Style Prop Dialect: Sword and Skirt
** This Tribal Improv piece will highlight two of our favorite props! Utilizing both slow and fast music students are welcome to participate with both props or just one. We are offering Sword technique in the class prior to this rehearsal so students taking that class or others that have taken sword technique before are welcome to join. Skirt participants must have taken that course previously.

**Another first for Florida Tribal Dance is combining all of our Tribal Improv dancers, including Blue Caravan, into one epic set! We'll be performing to a minimum of 3 songs to create a showcase of our Improv style! All dancers will be placed in the piece at a comfort level that they can excel in!
Sunday, May 6th 12pm-2:30pm ($5cash per dancer)
**Since we have kept our rehearsal schedule tight and compact we've added this additional rehearsal as an opportunity to see pieces that perhaps you are not in, and to get some extra rehearsal time, and dress rehearsal time! This rehearsal is not mandatory but is HIGHLY recommended!
Thursday, May 10th 6:30pm-8:30pm PEP RALLY! ($5cash per dancer)
**It is tradition! The Thursday before Tribal Garden we get together, get pumped up, and get our last practice in! Again, this rehearsal is not mandatory however it is HIGHLY recommended!
