Nutcracker Auditions

It's that time of year again. We are excited to be presenting The Nutcracker this holiday season. Please join us for auditions September 23rd. Don't forget to pre-register! Information below.

 

Les Sylphides and Four Sea Interludes

What a fantastic success! We are so very proud of our dancers who participated in this amazing ballet. Les Sylphides was a beautiful and moving work of art that deftly showcased the dancers impressive skills. Director Angela Curtis' vision for Four Sea Interludes was brought to life as we watched life under the sea dancing before our eyes. A big congratulations to all involved and our deep gratitude to the many volunteers that made this ballet such a success. We hope to see you all in the fall for The Nutcracker. 
















Special thanks to Evelyn Chidester for the photos.

The time is at hand. We are less than a month away from our beautiful production. There's no time to waste. Please make sure all dancers attend EVERY rehearsal this month! And please, PLEASE, practice at home.The rehearsal schedule is listed below.
For photos please make sure your female dancer has on pink ballet tights, nude leotard, pink ballet slippers, and hair in a ballet bun in the center of the back of her head (no high buns please) and wear neutral stage make up. Male dancers: if you have any questions regarding what to wear please contact Angela at the studio. Costumes will be checked out to dancers just before photos are taken and checked back in at the studio upon completion of the photo shoot. Rehearsal for all dancers will continue throughout the evening 6-8pm and dancers will be taken a group at a time for photos with the youngest being photographed first. So please, make sure you are on time and arrive prepared.
If you wish to order individual prints of your dancer, forms will be available at the photo shoot and cash or check are preferred.

As always, thanks for your support!

Volunteer help still needed

Dear parents,
Welcome to 2017. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday break. The ballet is fast approaching! If you haven't taken the opportunity to sign up for a volunteer position please do so at rehearsal today. The list will be available at the desk. A revised list will be emailed Monday, Jan 9th with positions that still need to be filled.
WE NEED SCENERY HELP! Those who may be interested helping create our scenery we would appreciate you staying after rehearsal Saturday, Jan. 7th for a brainstorming session. We have a basic idea of what we hope to create but need your input on how to pull it all together. We will meet 3-3:30 and again Saturday, Jan. 14th from 3-3:30 as well. We also invite other family members and friends to be part of our volunteer crew. Any scenery builders outside of the dancer's household  will receive a free ticket to the show as our thanks for their volunteer time. (reminder: all dancers are given two free tickets as well for their parents or other family members.)
Thank you for all you do. Rehearsal schedules will be emailed over the weekend and printed copies will be available at rehearsal. 
If you have questions or comments please contact Paige at 801-577-1564.

Thanks again,
Paige
