The Carolina Ballet has launched a pilot program that offers free tickets to all high school students with a valid student ID.

The new program kicks off this weekend with the ballet company's performances of Beethoven: Symphony No. 9. It's followed by the ballet's Shakespeare series, which is scheduled for this coming winter and spring. That's when the company will join an international celebration marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death with four productions based on his plays and sonnets.

The performances take place in downtown Raleigh at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. Here are the shows that high school students can attend for free:

Loves Speaks - Feb. 4 to Feb. 21

Tempest Fantasy - March 3 to March 20

Macbeth (world premiere) - April 14 to April 17

George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream - May 12 to May 15

Here's the fine print: All tickets are based on availability for select performances at the discretion of Carolina Ballet. Students can call the Carolina Ballet Box Office at 919-719-0900 to reserve a seat. The tickets will be held at the will call window at the theater. Students must present a valid student ID to pick up their ticket. Students may also get their tickets at the theater on the day of the show one hour before curtain.

Jazz Secret Santa AND Tap Gag Gift info:

Secret Santa is BACK!! Woo hoo!

WE would like to clarify the Secret Santa and Silly Gift Process for both Tap and Jazz classes for anyone who is doing this for the first time or needs a reminder. This is how the gifts work:

For JAZZ companies: The kids have already chosen their secret santas. Shhh dancers, don't tell!!! Dancers are to MAKE a gift for the person they chose. It can be a picture, a bracelet, baked goods, whatever they want. Remember that you can make it personal if your person has listed a favorite color, music group etc. Limit: $10! You will wrap your gift and PUT YOUR PERSONS NAME ON IT and sign it "From your Secret Santa." The day of the Party (Tues,December 15th) There will be bins outside of Summers office that they can put their present in so no one knows who its from.

-If you think for some reason you will be late, or miss the class, please bring your gift ahead of time so you person will have something to open

FOR TAP COMPANIES: This is a Silly "Grab Bag" Gift for Tuesday December 15th. This is NOT a secret Santa gift. Limit $10. Simply bring a wrapped, fun, silly present to class that night. Emily will collect them and assign numbers to the gifts. The kids will then draw numbers and get the assigned present, as long as its not their own. Please make sure it is a store bought gift. The seniors go a little overboard with the silliness of this gift but we want it to be fair for the younger companies. If you forget to bring a gift, you simply will not open one.

Mandatory solo/duet/trio rehearsals prior to competition- Please hold Jan 8-10 and 29-31 to rehearse your solo/duet/trio with a staff member. Summer will be emailing all the details.

STARQUEST MOCK COMPETITION - Please hold January 22 for Starquest Mock Competition. The competition will be held at Reynolds Industries Theatre at Duke University, 125 Science Dr, Durham, NC 27708. Schedule for the day is TBD. Continue to hold January 23, for a dress rehearsal at the studio.

SONYA TAYEH- Sonya can no longer come the week of January 17th, her new dates are TBD

COSTUME PASS OUT - January 11th from 4:15-7:15 ** new day and time**

Hold January 13th for Martha to finish the Production *new time*

January 15th-17th - NO EXCEPTIONS! Please still hold January 22nd-24th as needed.

TRAVELING? Be sure to keep any complimentary samples that are left in the hotel. We will be collecting year round and donating to the Rescue Mission. Donations will me collected in the lobby.

BUDDY BOARD - CORE/FUSION - We know that you may not get to see your buddies as often as you would like due to schedules, so with the help of Fusion parent Mandee Cottrell we have placed a "Buddy Board" in the Studio 4/5 lobby. Each month will have a theme and you will be able to leave messages for your buddy thought the week! Be sure to show your buddy some love!!


We are definitely attending Nationals! Woo hoo!! We will have more cost info in the next weeklies.

A detailed rehearsal schedule will be sent out closer to the dates. For now, please hold the week of May 16th-19th and June 21st-30th.

You are now enrolled in the Dance Awards 2016 class. Through this outlet, you will receive emails, rehearsal information and other notices in regards to nationals. We are looking into fundraising opportunities and will keep you posted.

Also in the works is a Cruise ship performance while we are in Orlando! The dancers will have the opportunity to perform a 30 minute showcase as we enjoy traveling over the course of four days. Moving forward, information will be mailed out via each class that has signed up rather than being passed through the weeklies.
