Performance Opportunities:

Mass Ballet has two optional performances each year for students in Pre-ballet and up. In the
winter we present The Nutcracker (auditions held in September) and in the late spring each
class presents a piece in our annual Spring Demonstration. There is a small audition fee for the
Nutcracker. Students wear their class uniform for the Spring Demonstration. While students may
need to purchase an appropriate leotard and tights, most costume pieces and any extras such
as hair accessories or props for both performances are provided by Mass Ballet. All classes host
a “Peek Week” at the end of the first semester to allow parents, friends and family a chance to
come into the classroom to see what the dancers have been working on. An additional “Peek
Week” is also held for the “First Steps” class in the spring at the conclusion of the second
semester.
