If time all slots fill up for an age group, we will add additional audition time slots.
All dancer's attending auditions, must sign-up for a time slot and have the ONLINE AUDITION FORM filled out prior to attending auditions.
Rehearsal for FMBallet productions typically take place Saturday late afternoons, or Sunday afternoons. Advance dancers may be asked to attend Wednesday night FMBallet rehearsals.
Rehearsal schedules are released at least 2 weeks in advance and can be found on the FMBallet website (most up-to-date) on our Calendar Page.
Due to the limited amount of rehearsal time, missed rehearsals may mean dismissal from the production. This is nothing against a dancer, it is just that we rehearsal this production in less than 50 hours from start to finish. And every rehearsal is important. Being apart of the production is a commitment.
We will have rehearsals the week of Thanksgiving. Make sure ALL conflicts from audition date - December 19 is listed on your audition form.
