Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held primarily on Wednesday nights at the Arlington Forest United Methodist Church located at 4701 Arlington Blvd, Arlington, VA 22203. Please see the calendar for the specific time for your child’s tier group, or you may download the schedule.

We understand your child has many competing activities and interests; therefore, we make sure our rehearsal time together is impactful and dynamic. Rehearsals are multi-faceted; vocal exercises, diction and vowel placement, movement and HAVING FUN! In order to get the maximum benefit from our rehearsal time, it is extremely important that all children learn the homework for the following week. Homework will posted on this website here and given and/or emailed to the parents each week. Rehearsals are precious in terms of time, so we expect 100% cooperation, effort and dedication.

Expect to work hard and enjoy the benefits! The last rehearsal of the each month will celebrate us... our birthdays! ACC will provide water and juice, and you are welcome to bring your birthday treats for all to share.
