Thank you Blance,

My daughter had heard from others that going home for Thanksgiving is not an option, but it's nice to have that confirmed and understand the "why" behind it.

Blanche do you know if advanced dancers can request to go home at Christmas? You mentioned younger Pro1 can request it.

Yes, Advanced and Pro1 can request early release for the holiday; it's generally first-come, first-served as long as they can accommodate casting. Pro2/Invited Guests/HB2 cannot generally go home before the end of the run.

Thank you! Is there a formal way to make a request? Not sure if DD would even want to come home though lol.

Anyone have a gauge on how many students are accepted into the Pre-pro levels?  What do they cap their class size at?

Bekah21,

There is a form to fill out sometime around October. Many of the younger out-of-town students go home by the 25th.

 

ballettalkgrm,

Are you asking about evening levels? The day program usually invites 20 per level (for each of the three day levels); however, that number in reality maybe higher or lower depending on a number of factors.
