Défilé accessories are being distributed in classes May 8-20. NO extra items have been ordered, so please take care that children do not play with them prior to concert time. You must bring your child's accessory with you to Carmel High School. All undistributed accessories will be brought to the theatre and your child will receive theirs at check-in time
Défilé Ballet skirts are now available in Avenue 21 Dancewear! All Ballet students must purchase the required class skirt. If your child already has a Pre-Ballet tutu, a romantic tutu, or a practice tutu from a previous year, they do not need to purchase a new tutu.

WHAT IS DÉFILÉ ?
We like to think of Défilé as a "concert-graduation". It gives our students an opportunity to perform on the stage in a comfortable situation without hours of rehearsal and tons of pressure. Parents can witness the progress their student has made over the year. It isn't a big spectacle with fancy costumes and sets. Dancenter North borrowed this concept from the Paris Opera Ballet School who present a Défilé (translation: parade) each year at the end of their season.
WHEN IS DÉFILÉ ?
Students are presented on stage at Carmel High School Auditorium at the end of the Spring session in May. The 2017 concerts will be held May 27-28. Please see the concert schedule listed above.
All students in classes starting with our Intro to Pre-Ballet classes up through our graduating 8th graders participate in Défilé. High School students and adults do not participate.
HOW MUCH REHEARSAL CAN WE EXPECT?
Dancenter North believes that class time should be spent developing technique. For that reason, practice for Défilé is kept at a minimum and rehearsed only during a small fraction of class time.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCTION FEE FOR?
The fee pays for the supplement to the student's apparel for the occasion. Our staff works to find an apporpriate accessory or costume piece for each class and each student. It is organized, packaged, and delivered to each student the week prior to performances.
