Hansel and Gretel Cast Info

Performance Dates: TBA (Likely April 24, 25)
Ballet Aligned and the Utah Festival Conservatory are continuing their partnership for the next ballet benefit in the "Once Upon a Storytime" Series: Hansel and Gretel. It will be presented as a benefit for The Family Place whose mission is to strengthen families and protect children. Their services include the Kids Place - a safe, caring space for children to stay when caregivers need extra support, and therapy, educational workshops, the Starfish Children’s Shelter for children who are transitioning to foster care, and fun, family-focused events in the community. We are delighted to donate proceeds from ticket sales of Hansel and Gretel to further the mission of The Family Place and make a difference to "the one." Thank you for your support of this cause!

Every student who keeps their performance commitment will be in the performance.

Please reference the performance commitment below.

The performance fee is $35/performer.

Please REVIEW: Ballet Aligned's Performance Commitment

I acknowledge that by registering to participate in the performance, I will receive a part in the production. I recognize that:

1) As this is a NEW ballet, parts will not be assigned until 2-4 weeks AFTER classes begin.
2) I am under no obligation to perform. If I choose not to participate in the performance(s), I may receive a refund of my $30 performance fee, IF I opt out no more than 1 week after the performance location and date(s) are announced.
3) In order to perform, I will need to purchase appropriate tights, shoes, and leotards required by the class's corresponding performance dress code. This will be sent AFTER roles are assigned. These must be purchased and worn to classes by anyone intending to perform.
4) In order to perform, I must attend 85% of my classes before Mar 15, and ALL my classes after that through the show. (This helps ensure dancers are prepared for the show and confident in their role.) If my attendance is below this mark, I MAY not be able to perform.
5) I will attend 2-5 additional rehearsals held at Ballet Aligned AND on the stage where we will perform, that these will NOT be at my regular class times, and will likely take place up to two weeks before the performance. (Specifc dates will be announced no later than April 1.)
6) If I miss these, it MAY result in me NOT participating in the performance. (There will be no refund of tickets or performance fees.)
7) Any exceptions to the attendance requirements will be determined on a case-by-case basis in consultation with your teacher AND director, Steffanie Casperson.
