IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

This is a wonderful performing and learning opportunity for the dancers, and we highly encourage Dance Fremont students to participate. However, dancers and their families should consider the time commitment carefully ahead of time. Most rehearsals are on Saturday afternoons, with a couple Sunday rehearsals. Students in Level 6 may also have Thursday evening rehearsals. Each role has a limited amount of rehearsals. There is a strict attendance policy to ensure that every child has sufficient preparation to have a successful and joyous performance experience. If a child misses their first rehearsal, it has a great impact on the child’s self-confidence and on the other students who are trying to imagine a missing body. Depending on the role, a student who has to miss their first rehearsal may not be allowed to participate. Maximum one absence is allowed only for illness or a family emergency. Please do not intentionally plan an absence! If a child misses more than one rehearsal, they will be excused from the production. Sunday after Thanksgiving is a mandatory rehearsal.
