SPECIAL HAIR REQUIREMENT FOR MARCH DANCERS:
We are asking the dancers in the March to wear hair half up and half down with rag curls. The following link is helpful - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7bjCSteybc
We strongly recommend that dancers who have not done rag curls before do a "practice run" some time before Sunday. Dancers should wear their "rags" to rehearsal on Sunday and we'll take them out right before the performance. We'll also have a curling iron on hand for any necessary touch ups.
HAIR FOR POLICHINELLES
Polichinelles should wear their hair in two high pig tails. We'll have some bows at the theatre to tie around the pig tails.
ALL DANCERS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING COSTUMES TO SATURDAY'S REHEARSAL.

At our meeting in the summer, company parents expressed their hopes that the dates for summer Dance Co Plus weeks could be posted early in the year to help with summer planning. We've confirmed the dates for our Summer Dance Co plus programs for Summer 2016.
Dance Company Plus (School Shows) - July 18-22
Dance Company Plus (Theatre Show) - August 8-12
Mark the dates on your calendar. The detailed summer program brochure will be available in early January.
Attached is the lunch order form for Dec 6, the day of the Nutcracker
show. We will be having Subworx sub/wraps again and have to hand in the
order 1 week in advance, so the deadline for the dropping off the forms
at Carousel is Sunday, Nov 29, at 7 pm (after the last Nutcracker
rehearsals that day).
