Big Ballet Rehersals

Dear Dancers in Ballet IIA, IIB, III & IV,

We will have several extra rehearsals for the sections of recital that you do all together. You MUST attend at least one of these rehearsals, preferable more than one if you wish to be in the opening and finale. If you do not attend, you will perform your class dance, but will NOT be in the opening and finale.

We have almost fifty dancers in the Big Ballet this year, recital is earlier, so we have less time to prepare.

Here is a schedule of the extra rehearsals:

  • Saturday, March 21 1:30 – 3:30
  • Saturday April 11 1:30 – 3:30
  • Friday April 24 6:30­8:00
  • Friday May 1, Saturday May 2, Friday May 8 if necessary

Rehearsals are at the studio unless otherwise posted.

Recital Date Changes – PLEASE READ

Due to circumstances beyond our control(early renovation of theater) Recital will be May 9th and 10th rather than May 30th & 31st
