Come celebrate the season by attending one of our upcoming performances of “Nutcracker In A Nutshell”! Tickets are available online for the performances, Saturday, December 18th and Sunday, December 19th at 3:30 p.m. at the Rachel Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, 4915 East Campus Drive, Alexandria (NOVA Campus). Tickets are $32 online and $35 at the door – all seating is reserved, masks will be required.
Both performances will be professionally videotaped. Order forms are available online and at the theatre on performance days. Please remember that videotaping and photography will be allowed at dress rehearsals ONLY.
The BAE Guild will raise funds for the BAE by selling refreshments, flower bouquets, Nutcracker gifts, and “Nutcracker Notes” on Performance Days, for you to present to your Nutcracker dancer. A full “Nutcracker” boutique at the theatre will supply many of your Christmas stocking needs! All proceeds benefit the BAE.
If you would like to support the Ballet Arts Ensemble of Fairfax with a fully tax-deductable donation, please do so by Sunday, Dec. 12th, so that we may acknowledge your gift in the Nutcracker program! Donations will be accepted for 2021 tax purposes through December 31st.
Please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the studio during the next few weeks and help support the U.S. Marines’ drive for “Toys for Tots”! CBA has been proud to participate in this worthwhile project for many years now. We thank the Howell family for continuing this tradition.
A reminder that December tuition is due the first of the month. A $10 late fee will be added after the 10th. Also, keep in mind that Costume Deposits for the June recital will be due January 22nd, so plan ahead over the holidays. ($50 per/class or costume).
A revised class schedule will be observed for those enrolled in classes on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 15th and 16th, due to Nutcracker Dress Rehearsals at the theatre. This information will be provided at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
The studio will close for the holidays from Saturday, Dec. 18th through Saturday, January 1st. Classes resume on Monday, January 3rd, 2022. We wish all of you a warm, wonderful, restful and blessed holiday season. All the best to you and your families for the New Year!
