Nutcracker 2018 Rehearsal Schedule

Nutcracker Rehearsal Schedule 2018

This year all rehearsals will be held at Ballet arts of CNY in Clark Mills. Because of the limited parking at the Ballet Arts studio, and in the neighborhood, we ask that you please follow the parking rules we set up in August. Everyone’s cooperation during the Nutcracker Week rehearsals made it one of our most successful weeks ever, even though our cast is the largest in several years. With this in mind please do not park in the studio parking lot. The parking lot will be used for a quick drop off and pick up zone. If you wish to stay and watch your child please park in the Clark Mills Fire Department parking lot on East South Street (safely away from the firehouse doors) or in designated areas on Mill Street. To avoid being ticketed, DO NOT Park across the street from the studio in the handicapped parking spaces, at the duplex, the laundromat, or in front of the brick building on Clinton Street. Let’s make the only tickets we hear about this year, be tickets to our wonderful Nutcracker!
