First Notice Home

Dear Parents/ Guardians


I would like to plan the following events just in case the work action ends. Hopefully, we can get back to our normal dance program as quick as possible.

Dance is a performance art so performing is a large part of a dance student’s education. Dance students are marked on their preparation as well as their skills demonstrated at these performances and at the dress rehearsal. Students will have the opportunity to perform informally in front of their peers and formally at assemblies, festivals and competitions. Notices of reminder and permission forms will be sent home when these events come closer.

The following performance and rehearsal dates are for shows at Frank Hurt Theatre. These performances are integral to the dance program. Please make note of these dates and help ensure that your child is in attendance. If there are any conflicts please inform your child’s teacher immediately.

This semester the dance department will be presenting two sets of evening shows. Our first show will be a workshop demonstration. This is a low-key performance on Nov. 3 at 7pm and it is meant to be viewed by family members only. The purpose of this demonstration is for the students to display what they have learned and to be introduced to stage performance in a comfortable manner. This is not meant to be a polished show. Costumes and lighting will be very basic and the performances will be ‘works in progress.’ Students must be available for a dress/technical rehearsal on Nov. 1 from 3-4pm.

Our second show is a formal performance with full costumes and lighting. The dress rehearsal will be held on Jan. 9 from 12:30-2:30pm and the show will be on Jan. 12 at 7pm.

Please Note these important dates in your calendars:

Happy Dancing!
