Branches of Dance Present THE NUTCRACKER
Branches of Dance is excited to be presenting its second Production of The Nutcracker in December 2020
Everyone (even if you dance at another studio) who takes ballet and is ages 6 & older are welcomed to be in the Nutcracker. We will learn the entire show choreography from 4:00pm-9:00pm Monday-Friday at Nutcracker Camp Held July 6th-10th, 2020. This week is mandatory for all dancers. Please do your best to reserve time in July, and August for weekend summer rehearsals.
Download The Nutcracker Registration form for you and your child to complete. All rehearsals (after choreography camp) will be on Friday evenings 5-9pm, Saturday and Sunday mornings 10:00am-3:00pm. The schedules may change month to month depending on the needs of each dance. There will be a onetime fee of $80.00 per dance due with the form. This fee will cover your costume rental, props, and rehearsals. Payments can be made for dancers with multiple roles. Balances must be paid up prior to August rehearsals.
I would like to encourage all students intermediate level and up to sign up for a minimum of 3 dances. This enables dancers to enjoy participation in all the Acts and be fully engaged in the entire ballet. There are parts available for every age and ability level. Parts will be determined by Branches of Dance Instructors and will be based on level of technical ability and the student’s availability for rehearsal. Advanced dancers are encouraged to sign up for 4 or more dances.
Dancers will be asked to sell 2 business ads for the program. This will help us purchase professional equipment needed for the show. We will have a mandatory Nutcracker Picture Day, and host a Nutcracker Gala Party after the show to celebrate our performance.
Keep in mind lead roles may be asked to perform pieces from the nutcracker in the community. Such as;
Leesport Community Days, Temple Parade, Clara's Tea Party, Local
Library Story Times, Nursing Home Performances and more.
