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 a series of 4 concerts on May 26-27, 2018.  Please view the full concert schedule above.  Pay close attention to which color concert(s) your child is performing in!  

WHO PARTICIPATES?

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 AND HOW MUCH IS IT?

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.  A $27 production fee is applied for each dance discipline in which the student is registered.  If your student is registered for more than one class per discipline in the Spring session, you will only pay one fee for that discipline.
