NUTCRACKER 2018 PARENT INFORMATION

 WELCOME TO ROCKY MOUNTAIN DANCE THEATRE’S 21st ANNUAL PRODUCTION OF THE NUTCRACKER.  It will be another exciting season with a lot of fun times and hard work. The Nutcracker requires a lot of energy and patience, but in the end it is worth the effort. 🙂 

On this page you'll find all the general information about Nutcracker. Items needed for costumes and calendars are on the tabs on the right.

SCHEDULE

2018 performance dates for the Nutcracker have been scheduled for December 14, 15, & 16, 2018. Nutcracker rehearsal schedules will be all posted on the Younger Dancer and Older Dancer Nutcracker google calendars.  If you do not know if you should look at the Younger Calendar or the Older Calendar, you should look at the Younger Calendar, as dancers know when they are "older dancers".

For those of you with a g-mail address, you will be sent an email to be linked to the appropriate calendar.  **If you did not supply a g-mail address on your audition form, but would like to be linked to the calendar, please send your g-mail address to: mary@rockymountainschoolofthearts.com. PLEASE NOTE: Only g-mail addresses can be linked.  Once you are linked, the calendar will sync with your phone (if it doesn't you can manually sync it at https://calendar.google.com/calendar/syncselect ).

Any changes made to the calendar will automatically update on your phone.  If you choose not to sync, please check the calendar on the website several times a week.  Changes will only be posted, not emailed.  It is the responsibility of the parent and dancer to check the calendar and to attend rehearsals even if a change has been made to the schedule.
