LOVE IS... | Spring Production 2017

It is our pleasure to announce our new contemporary ballet “Love is…” as Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts’ Spring 2017 production. Created especially for Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts by Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Slager, it dives into the truth of 1 Corinthians 13, and the way God teaches us to love each other deeply, and without reservation.

Please contact me if you have any questions!

Sincerely,
Abigail Gray, Children’s Division Director

Registration

Participation is Optional

Participation is recommended, but not required.

Participation Requires Registration

The registration deadline is Saturday, March 11th, 2017. 

Participation Includes a Performance Fee

Children’s Cast members pay a performance fee corresponding with their class level. Fees go toward handmade costumes and sets, original choreography and staff for rehearsal hours. The result? Students get to participate in a professional quality production at a cost that is less than that of buying a costume out of a catalog! Fees are due by March 17th and are non-refundable and non-transferable.


Class Attendance and Rehearsals

Cast Members Will Need to Maintain Regular Class Attendance

Our Children’s Cast dancers rehearse their choreography as part of their regular weekly class(es) - so, regular class attendance is extremely important! Learning choreography helps students to develop the skills of memorization and team-work that will last them a lifetime both in and outside of the studio.

Cast Members are Required to Attend Rehearsals

There are some mandatory rehearsals outside of class required for Children’s Cast participants. Please make sure you do not have a scheduling conflict prior to committing to the performance!
