Although a student may be enrolled in the Spring Showcase, mandatory attendance at Showcase rehearsals is required in order for any student to be allowed to perform. Attendance is mandatory. Each participant is allowed one excused absence per semester which must be requested and approved in advance.
Every Spring Showcase dancer is required to submit a leave request to the School Administrator using this form at least 2 weeks prior to your requested date. If you are ill or require emergency leave and are unable to submit this form prior to your absence, please submit a form upon your return or call Kristine Orms at 583-3150 x245 to notify choreographer and faculty of your absence.
We recognize that families have many schedules to juggle and make every effort to publish our rehearsal schedules as early as possible. However, creating a world premiere ballet for our students makes it impossible to foresee all aspects of the creative process and the number of rehearsals required to fully choreograph the scene(s) where multiple characters/ roles are involved.
Attendance is mandatory. No unexcused absences will be permitted. Students who anticipate an absence may submit it for pre-approval. Unexcused absences (except in the case of illness) after February 22nd will result in dismissal from the production. More than 2 absences (for any reason) during the Spring Semester may result in loss of part(s) (applicable to Twelve Dancing Princesses, Spring Collection, LBYE performances).
We will make every attempt to schedule rehearsals around the Brown-Forman Nutcracker Children’s Cast rehearsals. Absences for Nutcracker rehearsals will be excused.
