​​ Schedule​ of Upcoming Events

Casting and Contract letters went in the mail Monday, September 13, 2021 at 8am.  If you do not receive your letter by Thursday afternoon, please contact Ms. Ann-Marie at ptbdanceinfo@gmail.com

Please read the scheduling carefully.  It is very different than in the past.  Missing a rehearsal because you came at the wrong time counts as an unexcused absence and will result in dismissal from the production.

I try very hard to not change the schedule once it's set, however, sometimes it does change.  I recommend that the dancers check the schedule daily for updates.
