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 AND call 583-3150 x 258 (Downtown) or 895-3700 (St. Matthews) 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.
No unexcused absences will be permitted. Students who anticipate an absence may submit it for pre-approval. Please submit your leave request, if you anticipate an absence, for rehearsals starting on Feb. 18, on or before the Sept. 10th deadline. These will be evaluated by the faculty and answered accordingly. Unexcused absences (except in the case of illness) after February 18th 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 The Pirate Pixie, Spring Collection, and 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.
*****BLACKOUT PERIOD! No Leave Requests will be permitted AFTER FEB. 18TH unless pre-approved by Sept. 10*****
