special seating

 

Please let us know ahead when purchasing your tickets if you have a guest or great grandparent that may special assistance or seating. The gate and doors at the back by the kitchen offer wheelchair access from the parking lot and will be open. We can set them up near that area.

Opening night!

 

Opening night tonight! Ticket sales start one hour before the show, and the doors open for seating 30 minutes before the show, but there is no reserved seating. Please do not enter the theater ahead of time and put coats on seats!

If you bring goodies for the refreshment table, they can be dropped off in the lobby where the table will be set up.

See you there!

Fill out form….

 

Also, a reminder, please be sure to fill out the new Hold Harmless agreement for the performance. Students will not be allowed to perform without one. We have them at the studio and will have them at the theater during set up and rehearsal.

Call for treats!

 

I would like to ask families to please consider bringing baked goods to the performances. We always have a table set up for treats in the lobby. Please label if they are gluten/allergen free. Cookies and hand hold-able treats are preferred for ease of munching!
 
We will be moving to the theater on Tuesday around 1pm if anyone would like to help. Let me know if you can do so.
 
Thank you!

Performance news

 

Hello Dancers and families, I just did my best to create an event page on Facebook for the upcoming performances for you to share. Please invite all of your family and friends to come see us perform!
 
A reminder that we have a studio dress rehearsal this Tuesday at 4:30. Arrive, and put on costumes, no make up required, then the rehearsal will go from 5-6pm. Class as scheduled for Nina at 3:45, and classes as scheduled on Monday and Wednesday. If three days are too many, prioritize the dress rehearsal on Tuesday.
 
I also need everyone to fill out a special event Hold Harmless form as CR has set some new requirements for me to follow.

 
Thanks! See you soon.

Schedule plans, one change only

 

So after a brief but intense time working out the schedule issues, here is my decision. I will keep the Saturday and Sunday matinees as scheduled at 1pm, but change Friday to 5pm so families can enjoy the truck parade. And please remind me ahead of time next year.
 
Something I would like to point out though, is that we have been doing winter ballet shows for a long time now, and that when community plans are made, I think WE ought to be consulted before other events are planned on the same weekend! We deserve that consideration, in my opinion. Many families participate, as dancers, helpers, and audience, and we are a force to be reckoned with here in SoHum! (Count the kids). Just having my say…. Ha, maybe Santa wants to come to the theater!
 
Perhaps we can submit the performance schedules in September to the Chamber…. is it up and running these days? Or is there a better avenue for me to contact?
