These will need to be completed before the beginning of the fall schedule. One hour is required for a variation and two hours are required for the neo-classical/contemporary. The ensemble will take three hours of rehearsal time. 

  • Company members are expected to maintain regular attendance in their technique classes.  If you miss a mandatory class you will have two weeks to make up the class. If you are unsure of what class to take as a makeup, please ask your instructors.  Regular attendance at your weekly rehearsal is vital for your continued improvement.  If a rehearsal is going to be missed you must notify the director at least two weeks prior. More than three missed rehearsals will require you to schedule an hour private lesson (at an extra cost) with the director. 
  • Company members are to dress appropriately for all classes and rehearsals. Pointe shoes are to always be correctly sewn, dead Pointe shoes will not be acceptable for rehearsal.  Hair is to be tied in a neat bun at all ballet classes and rehearsals, hair off the face and not falling out in the middle of class.
