FIRST YEAR FOR CBT TO DO THE CLASSICAL “ALICE IN WONDERLAND” BALLET!
CBT Spring Ballet Recital features selections from our new classical ballet "Alice in Wonderland". Racquet Club, CMDS, SAA, Roulhacs and Second Baptist students will be in the Children's Ballet Theater Spring Recital Sunday, May 21 on the Hutchison School stage. Your child must be in a PKJK preballet class or older to participate. (2.5 year olds don’t participate in recital).
There will be two performances. Students participate in one show and this info is TBA. (Exception: Levels 3, 4 and 5 dance in both shows.)
There will be a REQUIRED dress rehearsal on Friday, May 19 from 4:00 to 7:30 pm (only Levels 4 & 5 attend the entire rehearsal). PKJK (3 & 4 yrs olds) DO NOT come to dress rehearsal but instead practice 45 minutes prior to showtime onstage.
There is a $65 fee to participate in the recital which has already been added to your tuition fee. This covers stage rental/technical costs, two parent tickets (given at the dress rehearsal or the show day), and your child’s pull on tutu skirt which she will keep or rental fee for costumes. All children should wear a class leotard, tights and hair in bun for recital.
