Company Calendar/Casting
  • We do our best to plan choreography/rehearsals in advance. But remember, this is show biz and things can come up when they do!
  • Good attendance to your classes is very important in upholding your Company commitment. Important family, religious, and school events are acceptable. Work is not an acceptable absence (unless we schedule something last minute). Do not plan trips around performances.
  • Choreography can be done in class unannounced. Sometimes we know in advance and post below. 
  • Wear all black to choreography/rehearsals.
  • See Company Calendar for additional rehearsals.
  • Dancers who miss original choreography or have poor attendance may be omitted from a routine and should always learn what they missed and understudy.
  • Understudies attend all rehearsals unless otherwise specified by Studio.
