Rehearsal Updates

Hello everyone,
Thank you to everyone who made it to the photo session today. Everyone looked great. I feel the need to remind everyone that we all need to make every effort to attend the rest of our rehearsals. We are nearing our performance rapidly and every dancer is crucial to the production's success. When even just a few dancers are missing it makes a huge difference to formation movement and choreography. Also, it is imperative that all dancers be practicing at home! We do not have the leisure of taking time out of our scheduled rehearsals to re-teach at this point. If you need extra help we are happy to meet with you outside of rehearsal or send you video clips to study at home. We want everyone to feel well prepared but it is definitely a team effort and takes the whole cast being well practiced and on time attending every rehearsal for that to happen.
Thank you for understanding the seriousness your attendance has on the success of the production.
That being said, below is the schedule for this week. Next weeks schedule will be emailed on Monday and also posted here on the blog.
As always, Paige is happy to field your calls/texts with questions and concerns at any time (801)577-1564. If you have previously arranged absences please remind Paige via text the Monday before your absence to avoid confusion. Thank you for making every effort to attend each remaining rehearsal. See you this weekend.

Friday, Nov 3rd
6:30-8:00pm     Waltz, Snow, Chinese, Clara, Nutcracker Prince
Saturday, Nov 4th
12:00-3:00pm     ENTIRE CAST - Including Party Parents

Photo Day Instructions & October Rehearsals

We hope you enjoyed your fall break. Listed below are the rehearsal dates scheduled thus far. The remaining November dates will be set after we see how the dances look this weekend.
Please remember that the photo shoot is this Saturday, Oct 28th 3:30-5:30 at Edge of Expression (across the parking lot from C&C Ballet). Dancers not attending the photo session will not appear in the program pictures. Please plan accordingly. Hairstyle instructions have been sent via email. If you have not received this information please contact Paige at (801)577-1564 . Dancers will wear stage make up in neutral tones (like they do for recital). Girls should wear pink tights (no runs or holes please) and pink ballet slippers or pointe shoes depending on role. We don't want any undies showing so please don't wear them under your costume. For modesty while changing, dancers can wear a nude leotard but please be sure it's not peeking out under the costume. Also, please limit the amount of visible bra straps. Soldiers will need to wear black knee high socks and black dance shoes. Male dancers please have your hair neatly combed and wear a clean white fitted tee shirt and black pants with black dance shoes. Also bring black trouser socks please. If you wish to purchase pictures, order forms will be available at rehearsal.
As always, please contact Paige with any questions: (801)577-1564.
Thank you. See you soon
