IMPORTANT PARENT INFORMATION
(Fees, Costumes, and more)
FEES:
If you are cast in this production of the Nutcracker, there is a $155.00 fee per dancer to participate. Here is the
breakdown of what’s included in your $155.00.
♦ Weekly rehearsals with professional staff (Sept. 15-Dec. 1)
♦ Theater week contact time with professional staff (Dec. 2- Dec. 9)
♦ ALL costumes for performers
♦ Headpiece for performers
♦ Tights
This does not cover ticket costs for family members, tickets may be purchased separately; also not covered are
undergarments (other than tights) and shoes. A deposit of $80 is due at the first rehearsal weekend, on September 16th
. The remaining $75.00 is due October 21st. If this causes undue hardship for your family, please talk to the director, Cori
Wall, as payment arrangements can be made.
REHEARSALS AND ATTENDANCE POLICY:
PLEASE SEE REVERSE SIDE FOR ANTICIPATED SATURDAY REHEARSAL SCHEDULE SEPT. 16- OCT. 14.
You will be required to attend all rehearsals for your role/part in the production. In general, rehearsals will be
between 1-2 hours on Fridays and/or Saturdays. If you have multiple scenes in which you perform, you will have
additional rehearsals/times. A rehearsal schedule will be distributed via e-mail with the cast list. When someone is
absent from rehearsal, it affects the entire group. Therefore, it is strongly encouraged to attend ALL rehearsals. Most
of the choreography is taught in the first two or three rehearsals, thus it is extremely important for you to be there. If
you miss more than one rehearsal, you will be cut from the production. Two tardies will be counted as an absence.
Dancers are expected to arrive prepared to dance 15 minutes prior to the start time of their rehearsal in case we are
ahead of schedule. We will not rehearse on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 13 and 14 due to FUSD Fall Break, or Nov. 24 and
25 due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This is a large production and we cannot re-teach choreography to those
who miss rehearsal; if you miss something in rehearsal, get with another dancer before your next rehearsal and catch
up. Rehearsals are normally from 9:00am-3:30pm Saturdays and lead rehearsals Fridays (with other times possible)
with each dance taking 30 minutes to 1 hour. Other potential rehearsal times are Mondays after 9:15pm and
Wednesdays after 8:00pm. WE DO NOT TAKE THE FIRST WEEKEND OF FUSD FALL BREAK OFF (Oct. 6 & 7).
Tech and dress rehearsals are mandatory. They are currently scheduled for the week of Dec. 2-7. More details to
follow. Friday and Saturday Dec. 8 and 9 7:30pm evening shows and an 11:00am Saturday matinee. A final schedule will
be distributed later. There will be some lec/dems and a daytime performance with dates to be announced later
(typically the Friday before show weekend).
REQUIREMENTS:
People cast in the production are required to take technique class (either ballet or modern/jazz) at Canyon Dance
Academy, but not necessarily exclusively. You may take class at other places if desired, but at CDA and CMC we have a
specific way of working, and students in our classes will excel in those learning styles and methods. If students do not
attend class, they will be cut from the production.
We do the majority of our communication via e-mail-it is important that e-mails are read. We will use the e-mail
address on your audition form to send schedule updates, show details, etc. Updates will also be posted on our website
www.canyondance.org and our Facebook page. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IS LEDGABLE.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cori Wall (Director) at Canyon Dance Academy
