The Ballet Arts Ensemble of Fairfax presented Fall Dance Concert 2022 on Sunday, October 30th. We are very proud of the beautiful performance they presented! We thank the BAE Guild and volunteers who contributed to the success of the program. A link for Fall Concert photos and video will be sent to all performers/ families by the end of the week!
Rehearsals are now underway for the 2022 production of Nutcracker In A Nutshell. We congratulate all cast members and look forward to a rewarding holiday season! Be sure to check the Nutcracker Scoop each week for updates re. rehearsals, etc. Dancers who miss rehearsals may find effects in final casting.
As we embark on one of the busiest times of the year at CBA (the studio remains open seven days a week, due to Nutcracker rehearsals), we ask that students and parents be considerate of one another. We suggest that jewelry and other expensive objects be left at home. No food or drinks will be allowed in the dressing rooms or on the carpet and those who eat or drink in the kitchen area must clean up after themselves. We also ask that parents respect CBA receptionists by picking up dancers immediately after class and/ or rehearsals.
Tickets will go on sale for Nutcracker In A Nutshell , Sunday, November 27th - 10:00 AM. (Casting will be completed by Nov. 18th.) We hope that all of you at CBA will come out to support The Ballet Arts Ensemble by attending a performance on Sunday, Dec. 18 th at 1:00 or 5:00 p.m. at the Rachel Schlessinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, NOVA, Alexandria Campus. Tickets are $32 on line, (includes parking), all seats reserved. (Group rates are available to Brownie troupes, Scouts, etc. - 20 or more. This does not apply to families.) Tickets will be $35 at the door.
The studio will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 23 d through Saturday, Nov. 26th for the Thanksgiving holiday. Please check the dressing rooms for any lost clothing. The “Lost & Found” will be cleared out over the Thanksgiving break, as well as the collection of water bottles in the kitchen - all unclaimed articles will be donated to charity. Nutcracker In A Nutshell video links of each performance will make great gifts for family members! Look for a link to order in the Scoop in December.
A New design of Nutcracker t-shirt and sweatshirt will also be available to order via the Scoop thru Nov. 18th. BAE Guild will offer a Nutcracker Boutique during the performance week-end with Nutcrackers, and lots of “stocking stuffer” items to choose from. We wish all members of our CBA family a warm, happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
