Show season is upon us, with ‘The Curious Case of the Cursed Crystal’ being performed by our younger students in September, and our senior students dancing in ‘Alice’ in December. It’s been four years since our last large-scale show, and many of our students and parents are new to the world of ballet productions. To give you some insight into what shows are about and how to navigate this important time in the students’ performing arts education, here is a list of blogs, all written by TLFCB.

Geetha’s World of Costumes
Costumes are an essential part of a performance, and we spend a lot of time and effort in designing, sourcing and producing them to fit the theme and characters of the show. Gain insight into this process by clicking here.
If you have any questions about the upcoming shows, don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our administrators – whether it’s about rehearsals, costumes, or the show day – they are ready to help.
On the 24th of September, the day of the Curious Case of the Cursed Crystal, students will be in the auditorium for technical rehearsals for most of the day. For more information about that day, we will be sending a detailed schedule which will include arrival times at the venue, technical rehearsal slots, information about what to bring on the day of the performance, and more. This schedule will be sent shorty after our dress rehearsal on the 10th of September.
