Winter Break & Ballet Maintenance Classes

Studio CLOSED Sunday, December 20th

We will be holding Streaming Zoom classes the first week back, January 4-8. I plan on trying to keep the streaming schedule the same as this weeks, but please check in January for any changes.

I think with all the holiday traveling and gatherings, it is the prudent thing to do. We will then start back with in person classes starting January 11.

Regarding Spring Show Costumes
Many of you have noticed that I have not billed/collected for costumes yet.  I am trying to wait until the very last minute to collect money (just in case).  I am probably going to wait until the next update executive order scheduled on January 31st .  Usually I allowed partial payments, but since I am waiting, I will be asking for full payment in order to get the costumes in on time.  Wanted to mention this for your budget considerations.  Typically costumes cost $54-$60 per class

Ballet Maintenance Classes
For Ballet Int I-Adv
December 21, 23, 28 & 30
Technique & Pointe
Drop-in $12 a class

You must email us to reserve your spot since we have limited space due to Social Distancing.
These will be held at the studio, in person. Don't forget your mask.

Nutcracker Call Times

Please, please, PLEASE read the taping information sheet and have your dancer read it too!  It will answer a lot of questions.  We need to be very efficient with the use of our time and we have the added necessity of keeping our numbers limited for the safety of our dancers, their families, the FBC staff and the community.

Taping is on Sunday, December 13th

10 year Anniversary

I would like to take a moment to celebrate the fact that our Drosselmeyer, John Mayer, is celebrating his 10 year anniversary performing this roll for FBC. Thank-you for making the "magic" happen.nut_john
