Scroll to bottom of page for Nutcracker week at the Paramount schedule for March 1-5.
ATTENTION: IMPORTANT INFO FOR THE WEEK OF MARCH 1-5!!! Nutcracker week is March 1-5. We will be having rehearsals and filming each night at the Paramount.
For those NOT involved in The Nutcracker: all baby ballet, ballet I (5&6's), jazz I (5&6's) and tap I (5-8's) classes will still meet for regular classes March 1-5. Those students are not involved in The Nutcracker but will be performing in our Ballet Abilene recital in May.
All dancers involved in The Nutcracker will NOT have regular classes at the studio next week but will report to the Paramount Theatre at 5:00 pm on their designated day (please see schedule below) with hair and make-up fixed (at home), with all costume pieces & dance wear needed and having been adequately fed (eat an early dinner before you come!). We will rehearse the scene, give notes and then film the scene. No parents will be allowed in the theatre. We will have ABT board members and Ballet Abilene teachers on hand to assist young children with costumes. Parents of young dancers, please drop off at 5:00 and be prepared to pick up at 8:30.
Parents, please do not buy a mask to match your dancer's costume. ABT is supplying all dancers with Bloch masks so that we will have a uniform look.
