BEFORE THE SHOW
On performance day, dress rehearsal will begin shortly after dancer call time.
Plan to arrive early or on time, as this last practice is important for the individual dancer and the group as a whole to go over safety information and prepare on the stage.
Female cast members are required to arrive dressed in pink tights and a leotard that matched their skin tone. Male cast members should arrive dressed in BRB dress code and will receive instructions on further needed attire. Students will get into costume upon after arrival.
Dancers must arrive with make-up done and hair in a proper ballet bun. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. We recommend practicing your child's ballet bun for class and rehearsals. See tutorials below.
Also see below for practice music, sweatshirts & video purchase!
Please help spread the word by sharing our social media posts!
We are excited to have you and your child be a part of BRB's Nutcracker tradition! We ask that a full commitment be given to the rehearsal schedule as it is a huge undertaking to put this full production together for our community.
We are thrilled to continue giving the gift of dance to our community for another Nutcracker season. Thank you for being a part!
