Rehearsal and Performance Information
 
  • Rehearsal Schedule- When does your dancer rehearse eache week? Find the schedule here.
  • Fitting Schedule and Costume Information- For your dancer's costume fitting, you may be asked to come early or stay late, or, on rare occasions, come a different day. Parents are welcome to stay and help, but are not required to do so. For the schedule and more information, click here. 
  • Make-up, Hair, attire- Find specific information in this form about your dancer's role, the make-up and hair styles, as well as clothing/shoes they may need to bring. Read throughly, as some things have changed from previous years. Specifically, it is highly recommended party girls purchase inexpensive wig ringlets to allow for quick costume changes and uniformity on stage.  
  • Theater Schedule and Call Times- When does your dancer need to arrive? When is the dress rehearsal? When does your dancer get a break between shows? A document coming soon will to answer all these questions. Note your dancer's call times and plan ahead to leave time for traffic, forgotten items, and miscellaneous mishaps. You do not want your dancer to be late! Spacing, notes, and other important things happen before a performance, and everyone is needed on time. If you are not there for your call time, your understudy could be asked to step in!
Ways you can help!
Ballet Frontier needs your help to make the Nutcracker a success. Please see the opportunities below for ways you can support this wonderful production:
 
  • Social Media- Help us spread the word about the Nutcraker! Join our closed  facebook group, Nutcracker Cast 2016, to get ideas and pictures to let friends, family, and coworkers know about the upcoming shows and how they can see your darling dancer. Share the balletfrontier.org link for purchasing tickets.
  • Chaperone- Adult female chaperones are needed for each of the shows to watch over the party girls, soldiers and mice. Chaperones will help with dressing, hair and makeup as well as keeping the dancers in their designated space. Chaperones arrive at the time their group is scheduled to check-in and remain with their group until the end of the show. Sign ups will be online and are coming soon at sign-up-genius. Sign up at the studio. Questions? Call or come by the studio and we'd be happy to help.
  • Ushers- We are in need of ushers for each of the shows. Adult volunteers are needed for this important role. The job requires checking in 1 hour prior to the show. Volunteers can watch the show from their seat once all audience members are in place. Please sign up by clicking here
  • Boutique- We are accepting donations for the Nutcracker Boutique that sells souvenirs at each show. Proceeds benefit Ballet Frontier of Texas. Please consider donating nutcracker-themed items such as nutcrackers, ornaments, socks, figurines, plastic swords, etc. Drop your donations by the office.
  • Join our Guild- Though no one has to join our volunteer organization to be a part of helping support Ballet Frontier, it is a great way to stay in the know, find out specific needs of the company, and offer your talents and skills to a non-profit. Find out more about the guild here or email our guild chairs for more information.
  • Sewing- The costume coordinators have been overwhelmed at how helpful everyone has been at tackling the alterations on our huge costume inventory! Every dancer feels better when performing in a costume that fits them just right. We still have continuing needs for sewing help. Please check the list at the studio, come by for Saturday Sewing Circles starting soon, or contact us for ways to help. Thank you!
Opportunities
 
  • ​Bouquets- Order bouquets to present your dancer at their performance. These beautiful arrangements of roses will be available for pick-up in the lobby the day of your dancer's performance. There may be a few bouquets or single flowers on sale the night of the performance, but only while supplies last. All proceeds go to support Ballet Frontier.
  • Photos- We all would love to have that perfect cameo of our Nutcracker stars. Stay tuned for when photos come available and browse the photos here.
