Emergency Party Scene Rehearsal 11/26

We Added and Emergency Party Scene Rehearsal

We know we said no rehearsals for this weekend, but we feel like the Party Scene needs more help. We are adding a emergency rehearsal this Saturday November 26th from 2:15pm-3:15pm. This rehearsal was announced this past Saturday and almost everyone said that they could make it. Please make sure you are in attendance because the more we practice the better it gets. If you are not in the Party Scene you will still not have any rehearsals this weekend! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Nutcracker Pictures

It’s Not everyday you are in the Nutcracker, Get some photos to cherish the memory.

Nutcracker photo’s will be taken at the Tampa Bay Ballet studio on December 3rd and 4th.

The photo’s will be taken by our talented company photographer, Bill Krautler. You have already seen his work with our company dancers on the Dracula and Nutcracker posters!

Your roles in the Nutcracker depict which day you get your pictures on. Advanced Corps and company will be on Saturday, and younger intermediate/beginner dancers will be on Sunday. To see which days your picture are on, check the TBB bulletin board in the lobby.

All group photos are MANDATORY, however if you want some pictures to keep of your own you may sign up for individual photos. For only $35 you get the group photo, and 3 poses of individual photos. You will recieve a CD of all of your photos right in time for the holiday season.

To sign up, write your name on the Photo Day schedule on the TBB bulletin board in the lobby. Please only one name per line. You will not have to pay for picture until the day of! Also take a photo form located right under the sign up sheet and bring with you the day of photos.

Rehearsals 11/14-11/19 and Hair and Makeup!

Get your hair and makeup right for pictures and stage!

We know sometimes it can get confusing in how to properly make a bun, or get the stage makeup right. Please watch these video to help you learn how to correctly do stage makeup and a bun. It is important that all dancers look the same onstage.

For Children Hair :
For Children Makeup :

For all dancers for the show will need to apply natural looking false eyelashes and eye liner that wings out on the top and bottom of the eye. If you are a ‘boy’ do not wear lipstick and no winged eyeliner, just frame the eye.

For picture days no fake eyelashes, or winged eyeliner. Recreate a more light and natural version of the stage makeup tutorial.

Rehearsals for 11/14-11/19. No Rehearsals 11/24-11/26. Happy Thanksgiving!
