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.
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 gofor 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
