2023 Nutcracker Rehearsals

In the tradition of the theater, all dancers are expected to graciously accept the part in which they are cast. If you find that you (or your child) are unable to participate in The Nutcracker because of the schedule, please contact one of the rehearsal directors as soon as possible.

Please Note:

  • For parents of dancers, you must attend one (1) MANDATORY parent meeting. The meeting will be at the NCADA studio. There are two (2) meeting times to choose from: September 16th at 12:30 pm or September 23rd at 12:30 pm. At the meeting you will sign your dancer’s contract and pay the dancer fees. Dancers do not need to be present at the parent meeting.

  • Costume fittings are scheduled on September 23rd and 24th and October 7thand 8th and are MANDATORY. If you absolutely cannot attend, please inform your rehearsal director as soon as possible to make other arrangements. The fittings will take place at NCADA Studio; check the schedule below for the time and place of your fitting. Please wear tights and leotards (girls), or black shorts and white shirts (boys). Missing any costume fittings is a reason for dismissal.

  • Because we have a short time frame in which to rehearse, we ask that you not be absent from any rehearsals or costume fittings. Any absences need to be cleared with your Rehearsal Director. Three (3) absences are reason for dismissal. Dancers who are out of town during Thanksgiving weekend need to notify your Rehearsal Director. Please consider this one of your absences.

  • Please refer to the Nutcracker Handbook for more information and codes of conduct.
