Whittier Community Center Auditorium

Important Information

Thank you for being a part of our ballet school program.  We hope that it is an exciting and positive experience for everyone involved!  In an effort to eliminate confusion and last minute questions, please read all information carefully.  If you have more than one student please read each letter carefully because information is specific to each student.

  1. Label.  Mark all clothing, ballet slippers, tights, dance bags, etc. with your dancer’s name and phone number.  Cache Valley School of Ballet and Whittier Community Center are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

  2. Drop Off.  The students will be checked in at hallway between the auditorium and the main lobby of the Whittier for the rehearsal/performance.  You will need to enter through the EAST side of the building.  We will have signs posted.  PLEASE BE ON TIME.  Punctuality is a must!  Please allow extra time for travel and arrive a little early to the auditorium.  Our rehearsals run on time and being late you run the risk of your dancer not being able to rehearse prior to their performance.

  3. Rehearsal/Performance Schedule.  We ask that you stay the entire performance.  It is very distracting to the dancers (and a bit rude) to have people come and go throughout the performance.  If you must leave early, please inform your dancer’s parent helper or instructor so arrangements can be made.  Please see the below schedule for your dancer’s schedule for the day of the performance.

  4. Theater Policy.  Please go over the attached theater policy information with your dancer so they know what behavior is expected of them.  Specifically address those areas in bold.  NO FOOD OR DRINKS ARE ALLOWED IN THE AUDITORIUM.  Water is the only thing that is acceptable.  Please make sure your dancer has had something to eat before they arrive for the rehearsal and performance.

  5. Tickets.  Student’s performing and Parent Helpers will not need a ticket for the performance.  Tickets will be available online beginning April 1, 2019 for free at:

  6. DVD. The Year End Performance is being recorded and DVDs are available for purchase for $5 each.  You can fill out the order form online or print and fill out the form.

  7. Attire.

    • Male Dancers—should wear a white shirt, black pants, black ballet shoes, and black socks, and hair should be neatly combed away from the face.

    • Female Dancers—should wear their black leotard (NO PANTIES), pink tights, pink ballet shoes, and a black dance skirt (if you have one) appropriate for their class.  The School of Ballet does have skirts that can be borrowed (please return these to their instructor) for the performance.  Please let your dancer’s instructor know if one is needed.  Hair must be pulled back in a neat bun with no bangs.  Buns should be just below the crown of the head in back.  Use lots of hair gel and hair spray to slick back bangs.  A hair net over the bun helps keep the fly-away hairs in place.  A hair bow will be given to each dancer, so please no extra hair “things” in their hair.  Ballet shoes must have elastics.  Ballet dancers DO NOT wear bows on their shoes.  Please knot the strings, trim halfway and tuck them inside the shoe.  No makeup is required for this performance.

  8. Parent Helpers.  These are adults whose job it is to ensure a non-stressful environment for your dancer before and during the performance.  They are not babysitters.  Please pick up your child promptly.  Please keep in mind that these parent helpers are volunteers assigned to help keep your dancer safe, happy, and secure.  Please respect them.  We encourage you to volunteer.  There is a signup sheet posted on the bulletin board outside the Studio 1 at the Whittier Community Center.  Parent helpers do not need a ticket for the performance.  You will be given a credential to get you into the auditorium for helping backstage during the rehearsal and performance.  This is a great opportunity to see your dancer and the School of Ballet dancers backstage!

  9. Restricted Area.  The Whittier Community Center has specific areas we are allowed to use and others we are not.  Many different groups use the facility as well as the School of Ballet.  We are guests in the auditorium and must be respectful of the building and all property in it.  Parents, siblings, and friends are not allowed backstage, in studios, or in the auditorium during the rehearsal (unless they are parent helpers with the appropriate credentials—which are given the day of the show).  No running in the auditorium anywhere and talking should be kept to a minimum when in all common areas.
