Notes & Policies
The $200 participation fee is due by September 14. *
The first rehearsal on Saturday, September 14 is important. Please do not miss it if at all possible. Rehearsals are EVERY Saturday with the exception of Thanksgiving weekend, November 28-30. *
Students may only miss 2 rehearsals. Excessive lateness or absence will result in dismissal from the production. Formations, timing, and spacing are the most challenging aspect of choreography for young dancers. If even one student is missing, it can be very confusing to his/her peers. We try to keep rehearsals efficient, and this policy makes that possible. *
Only students currently enrolled Pre-Ballet 2 & at least five years old, Primary, and Pre-Professional ballet programs at the Philadelphia Dance Academy are eligible to participate. Any student that misses 20% of their total classes, is in jeopardy of not being able to participate in Nutcracker and dismissal from the program. *
Rehearsals take place between 1-5pm on Saturdays. Younger students are not required to stay for the entire block of rehearsals. Each group's rehearsal will average 60-90 mins. *
We carefully and thoughtfully cast each production. There are many factors to consider, including level/age appropriateness of choreography, costume sizes, highlighting individual students' strengths, how dancers complement each other within a group, and the production as a whole. *
Please understand that you may not request or refuse a role. Every performance opportunity is a valuable chance to learn and grow. In addition to technique, we are teaching maturity, responsibility, respect, and a positive attitude. We expect all students to support each other and approach all choreography and rehearsals with a strong work ethic. *
If you or your child are not ready to accept the responsibility of being cast in any part or with any group of dancers, we strongly recommend waiting to audition. We want this to be a positive experience for all. *
Photo/Video Permission
By checking below, I affirm that I, the parent or guardian of the above-named student, permit my child to be photographed and/or filmed during class, rehearsal, or performance and permit his/her/their likeness to be used in The Philadelphia Dance Academy marketing materials (print or web). *
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
