Dress/Stage Rehearsal (mandatory) at ACPA- April 27 & 28
Swan Lake Performances at ACPA - Saturday, April 29th at 2:00 & 7:00
There is a $145 Production Fee for all dancers participating in Swan Lake. Pre-Professional Dancers had this fee included in their initial tuition installments and do not need to make any further payments. All non-Pre-Professional students must pay a $145 Production Fee by February 15th or have a payment plan in place.They are non-refundable once processed. The production/recital fee covers the rental of the venue and equipment for rehearsals and performances, set/props, any licensing/permits required, staff and labor at the event, including teachers and technical support, and cleaning up after the event. It will also include your performance digital download.
Chaperones and Backstage Info.
During rehearsals and performances only assigned chaperones will be allowed backstage. There will be chaperones for each class. Chaperones must attend the entire performance and all assigned rehearsals. If you are interested in chaperoning Swan Lake please contact the front desk. Any concerns regarding the care of the children may be brought to the front desk before the date of the performance. Any parent who cannot respect this policy for any reason may be asked to withdraw their child from the show.
Casting is at the discretion of the Artistic Staff. The Artist Staff will not discuss casting. Sometimes the Artistic Staff has to make hard choices. Who is best for the part? What is best for the Ballet? What is best for the performance?
We do not enjoy telling anyone, especially children, that the part is not theirs or we are giving the part to someone else but we try to do it as gently and as considerately as possible. We know it is hard but that is ballet. Casting is not about fairness, it's about what is best for the performance.
The Ballet Staff will not discuss, explain, or justify casting. Remember, there are no small parts, only small dancers. Each dancer is essential to the performance.
Rehearsals are mandatory. Every rehearsal is important. 2 or more absences (excused or unexcused) could result in loss of parts.
Dress/Stage Rehearsal will be at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. It is mandatory. We want dancers to get a chance to be on the stage and become familiar with it before they perform so they can be successful. Please wear ACBA warm ups or an ACBA shirt with moveable dance clothes when coming and leaving the theatre.
