SPRING PERFORMANCE for Creative Ballet 5 –Professional Division
Saturday, June 1, 2019 at IM Terrell Academy of Visual & Performing Arts All students enrolled in Texas Ballet Theater School (CB5 and above) are invited and encouraged to participate in the end-of-year Spring Performance. The Spring Performance is an exciting opportunity for students to perform and showcase what they have learned throughout the year. There are two to three performances and dancers will perform in one or multiple shows. Parents should be aware that this performance requires extra work and the students must attend all classes in preparation for the show. Participation is optional, but highly encouraged. Commitment forms will be handed out in January and are due, along with performance fee, by February 2, 2019. Completed forms, along with Performance Fee, need to be returned as soon as possible so that the teachers can choreograph and teach their dance. Absences between March 1st and the Spring Performance are generally not allowed and will jeopardize your child’s participation. If you anticipate missing multiple rehearsals for any reason, please discuss the possibility of an understudy role for your child with his/her teacher when you turn in the commitment contract. Addressing rehearsal conflicts early on with the teacher is essential to the teacher’s ability to choreograph and cast in a way that optimizes all students’ participation and experience. Remember, we want your child to be as successful on stage as possible! It is to the teacher’s discretion whether a child will be able to participate on stage and in what role based on attendance.
