There will be waiting periods when you are not on stage, bring something to pass this time. Bring a sweater or wrap, socks because the theater is sometimes chilly. No soft drinks are allowed in dressing rooms, back stage or on stage.

I would like to thank all of you students

parents/families for your commitment to these performances, please remember to have a blast on stage, it is a great privilege to be able to perform in an Art form that you love. 

Your hard work will show and I am so proud of every single one of you for your dedication to this Art. It is a true gift to see all of you improve each year. Thank you for helping me bringing a wonderful production of The Nutcracker to the stage for everyone to enjoy.

Let’s keep making a difference.

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE: Rehearsal Schedule Saturday 12/07, after school run-throughs week of performances 12/09, 12/10, 12/11, 12/12 AND Performance Schedules

Any questions about ANY the Rehearsal Schedule, ​should be addressed -- immediately. 

DO NOT wait until the last minute, and certainly NOT on ​rehearsal day!​
Below are buttons linking to ALL Polices regarding Studio and Theatre Rehearsals, and Costume Fittings. It is all required reading for parents when they signed the Registration Form. So, there should be no surprises here. It is HIGHLY recommended to go over them again.

Also, review the column on the right!
​​
​​IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO
BE ON THE STAGE

ALL ROLES
ARE IMPORTANT

...Otherwise they wouldn't be
part of a production!​
One may have the fortunate
opportunity to dance a leading role
in one production and then, be in the
corps de ballet in the next show.


REHEARSALS ARE
​VERY IMPORTANT!

While rehearsals are held for
each individual to learn and properly
be prepared for his or her role, they
are also held so the entire cast can
learn, work and react with each
other, and within the group or
ensemble with whom they perform
...AND actually enjoy performing what
they been working so diligently.
This is EXACTLY why
Paris Ballet and Dance
​productions are so wonderful!

ALL REHEARSALS AND
COSTUME FITTINGS
ARE ABSOLUTELY - MANDATORY

...Never an "option
."
Note: Wardrobe "staff" for
Paris Ballet and Dance volunteer
their time. Always be patient and
show them courtesy and respect!
Also, it is extremely rude, disrespectful
and inconsiderate to not show up or
be late for any costume fitting.


BE ON TIME! 

ON-TIME MEANS -- EARLY.
in the front door, hair up, shoes on,
and ready to go for the posted time.
It does not mean arriving at the
posted time, and then getting ready.
A good rule of thumb:
If you arrive at the posted time,
you are already late.

ALL STUDENTS,
NO MATTER THEIR ROLES,

are often required to attend
rehearsals during the week -- after
class and/or during the weekday
evenings. This rule especially applies
to students in The Conservatory
or Advanced Ensemble because it is
actually part of those programs!


IF A STUDENT MISSES A
REHEARSAL,

is their personal responsibilityto
thoroughly learn what is missed,
before the cast meets again!
They should not expect the entire 
cast
to 
wait while time is spent teaching
them something that was taught
while they were absent. 

PARIS BALLET AND DANCE
DOES EVERYTHING POSSIBLE
TO BE - ON TIME! 
HOWEVER,
FOR MANY REASONS
REHEARSALS MAY RUN
​OVERTIME.
Theatre rehearsals ALWAYS run
overtime. 
It's always best to be
ready for it.

FOOD AND SNACKS
Good nutrition is very important.
Neatness is, as well!

Please, do not send children to
the studio with items filled with
empty calories
...Also, messy snacks which
create lots of crumbs. If a student
will be in rehearsals all day, please
send them a sensible lunch without
messy rice, gravies, sauces OR
anything with excessive odors.
Never EVER send flavored and
sugary jucies/drinks with colors
which a 
can stain and create a
sticky mess. PLUS they aren't very
healthy!

STUDENTS ARE ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED to cleanup after
themselves or to keep
their "area" clean - no exceptions!
 
DO NOT BRING ANYTHING
OF VALUE TO THE STUDIO OR
THE THEATRE

Paris Ballet and Dance, the Theatre,
and any staff 
are not responsible
for broken, lost or stolen items.

ANY SCHEDULE OR EVENT IS
SUBJECT TO CHANGE




Please review ALL Polices
concerning Rehearsals, Costume
Fittings and While at the Theatre.
