​Everything is currently posted under the Nutcracker tab, so please look there for all information concerning this production.  Beginning next week, teachers will have students trying on costumes for fittings for the parts designated for that class.  ONLY BALLET CLASSES (Primary and Levels 1-8 NOT Creative Movement) are effected by this.  We are hoping to have 100% participation as this is a great opportunity for your dancer(s).  If, however, you do not wish for your child to take part in the production, your child's teacher will need to be notified immediately.  Students will be learning and practicing these dances as a part of their ballet class instructional time.

-PLEASE DO NOT ENTER A CLASSROOM WITHOUT ASKING DESK PERSONNEL FIRST!  Please understand that it is not that parents are not allowed in classrooms, however, everytime someone enters and exits the room, it is a disruption to the teacher as well as all of the other students.  We will need to be aware ahead of time and if the teacher gives permission, once in, we would ask that you please stay in.  Thank you!
