The Sugar Plum Fairy Tea kicks off the holiday season. Join us on Sunday, November 20th at 1:00 or 3:00 pm at Littleton Ballet Academy for an elegant afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones, and cupcakes, a special performance by Clara and Fritz, storytelling by Uncle Drosselmeyer, and a special visit from the Sugar Plum Fairy.  Tickets are $15.  To make reservations please stop by the front desk during office hours or call (303) 794-6694.  This event sells out every year so get your tickets early.
Reminder: No Broncos game that day:) What else are you going to do?

The School Performance letter will be sent out in the next few days.  Performances are June 9th and 10th at Littleton High School.  All dancers are eligible to perform except for Dance with Me.  The school performance is the culmination of the year's hard work and we highly encourage everyone to participate.  There is nothing like seeing your child perform on stage in a beautiful costume, especially for the first time.  And for children, there is nothing like the excitement of being in a live performance on a real stage!

If you are planning on participating in the School Performance, you do not have to do anything.  You will automatically be charged half the performance fee on November 15th.

If you do not want to participate (or are not sure yet if you can), you will need to send an email to to opt out.  If you decide later you would like to participate, you may do so (but the fee will be higher.)

All performance fees are nonrefundable, nontransferable, and non-negotiable.  

Just a reminder but there are NO CLASSES or REHEARSALS Wednesday, November 23rd to Friday, November 25th.  Classes will resume Saturday, November 26th. There ARE still classes Monday and Tuesday of that week. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
