FUSION COSTUMES- If you were not able to pick up your costume last week, please contact your dancer's instructor and they will make it available for you.

All new Fusion Company members are required to wear company earrings for every performance. We have ordered new pairs and we will let you know when they are available for purchase in CC's Closet.

FUSION DRESS REHEARSAL - March 12th for 2:00-5:00pm is our Mandatory Fusion Dress Rehearsal. Please wear your first costume of the day and bring your other costume/costumes with you. We will have studio 5 available as a dressing room for companies Groove, Jolt, and Jive and the back dressing rooms will be dedicated to Shock. If you are in Fusion Production, please arrive at 1:30 in your base costume to be styled with your accessories.

COMPANY WORKSHOP - Please hold March 13th from 12:00-6:00pm for our annual Company Workshop. All current Fusion Members are required to attend. Your dancer will take classes in Ballet/Jazz, Tap and Hip Hop. The specific schedule will be sent out shortly.

SUMMER TECHNIQUE CAMPS - Registration is now open for Summer technique camps! Please register online for your dancer's appropriate age and level.

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! Please understand that we do not have an office staff over the entire coarse of a weekend. Therefore, if you are going to miss rehearsal and it is after 7pm on Friday evening or 1pm on Saturday, please communicate with a person in your dance as well as email the company.

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 company@cccodance.com, 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.

If you are new to the Fusion company, you have purchased this beautiful Eye Trio and Appleberry lipstick. These colors look great on all skin tones and work nicely for both younger and older dancers. If you still have make up from last year, we were not able to get the exact compact, but it is very similar and will look the same from the audience.

We are diligently working to schedule a make up and hair tutorial with our resident make up artist and stylist. Once we have confirmed the time and date, we will let you know. Thanks for your patience.

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:

Tempest Fantasy - March 3 to March 20- Get your tickets NOW!

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.
