DRESS CODE - In January, we will be returning to our "Clean Lines" dress code. All ballet and jazz dancers will wear strict ballet clothes for all technique classes including Ballet and Jazz. For Tap classes, you are allowed to wear leggings over your pink tights. For Hip Hip classes, it is at the instructor's discretion. Thank you in advance, as it is important that your teachers are able to see your body placement during classes, evaluations and rehearsals as we approach the upcoming months. Wearing proper dresscode establishes respect, not only for your instructors, but for you and the training that you are receiving. The awareness of your body's proper placement, alignment and identification of weaker areas, are all integral parts of each dancer's journey to his/her goals.
TRAVELING? Keep any complimentary samples in the hotel room that you don't use and donate them! We will be collecting year round and donating to the Rescue Mission. Donations will be 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!!
WEEKEND REHEARSALS - Please use the Home Depot entrance for drop off/pick up for weekend rehearsals. The front entrance will be locked at 2:00pm on Saturdays and all day Sundays. This is for your dancers safety. We appreciate your cooperation!
If you are arriving late to a rehearsal, it is possible that you may be locked out. For safety reasons, if there are only two or fewer rehearsals at one time, we will have the doors locked. Please let your instructor know if you are running late and we will be sure to look out for your dancer.
ANY REHEARSAL CONFLICTS - should have been submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any that have not been submitted please do ASAP! If your conflict is submitted later than a week before your rehearsal, your account will be charged a Rehearsal Absence fee of $50.00.
Optional Conventions on the Fusion Calendar – This year when you decide upon any optional conventions/events/master classes, you will log on to your Studio Director account, choose ‘Enroll in a class’, select the dancer you wish to register, then select ‘2015-16 Master Class, Conventions & Optional Events’ season. Once you do that you will see a calendar, go to the month/year that the event will occur. Select the appropriate age group and enroll in the class. The balance due will be $0 (unless you are registering on the Auto Bill date) YOU WILL NOT BE BILLED UNTIL THE DUE DATE OF THE EVENT! Completing the check out process (with a zero balance) will commit you to this convention/optional event.
If you decide to enroll for other classes, events, etc. you will not have to pay for the convention fee/master to check out. Your total will only be for items that are due at that current time. If you decide before the due date that you do NOT wish to participate in the optional convention/event, you can go in to your Studio Director account, view your shopping cart and remove the event. If you have any questions please contact MeLissa or Lisa Lloyd.
FREE CAROLINA BALLET TICKETS TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH VALID I.D.
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 14
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.
