Moscow Nutcracker Parents and Dancers,
The Moscow Ballet has contacted us to appear on the Alive at Five at Four show next Friday, Dec. 20th on WBIR. I need all Party Kids from the 8pm show and Spanish Variation with Leia R. and Madison S. to arrive at AFS-North by 3:30pm. (This is a half day of school for Knox Co.) Taping of the live show will be from 4-5pm. Since this is live TV we will need to be prepared for their cues. They want to showcase rehearsals of these two very important parts of the ballet.
Please have all dancers ready and in dress code as follows.Girls – Solid Black leotard, pink tights and hair in nice ballet bun. Makeup isn’t required but some cheek blush and mascara would be nice, etc. NO LIPSTICK!…..remember you need to look like children.Boys – Solid White t-shirt and black tights, leggings, or solid black warm up pants with hair pulled back in a ponytail if it’s long.
Parents, please respond to this email to let us know that your dancer will be there on Friday, Dec. 20th at AFS-North…dressed and ready to go.
Thank you for letting us be a part of your dancer’s journey,
Angela Floyd, Founder/Director
Both Shows, 4pm and 8pm will be video taped for you to purchase from Moscow Ballet. Additional details to follow.
No Rehearsal Saturday, November 30. Happy Thanksgiving Weekend
We are so happy with the way rehearsals are going!! Your dancers are doing an amazing job and we want to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication.
Just a reminder that we WILL NOT be having rehearsals this coming Saturday, November 30th. Our studios will be closed for Thanksgiving and wish you and your families a wonderful and restful break. Your dancer should have received a schedule for the upcoming December rehearsals which will resume on Saturday, December 7th. You will find a copy of this schedule below if you did not.
Also, there were some questions regarding the costume information that was passed along. The answers we have received are as follows:
1.) Regarding the white camisole wording – all camisoles should be camisole leotards.
2.) Regarding the location of buns – buns should be on the crown of the head.
If there are any further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Finally, if there are any parents that are interested in volunteering to help backstage, please email us your information and for which show (4pm or 8pm) you would like to assist with. We have a few that have already done so and we will be getting with you to verify that you are still interested. Please understand that if you volunteer, you will not be able to see the show during your volunteer slot. You will be backstage with the dancers and will not be allowed to leave until the show is over.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we will see everyone back on December 7th!
