Information for Parents:

Please register your child for the performance by filling out the following form:

COSTUMES:  Students will wear their ballet uniforms with simple additions, as we have done in years past. Girls will wear ballet skirts that match the color of their uniforms (ordered by CSBA.)  Boys will wear belts which CSBA will provide.  (If your child was in the performance last year and is currently in the same color leotard as last year, she may reuse her skirt -- but you MUST bring your skirt to class to be approved by your teacher!) New Skirt Fee:  $25.  All skirt payments will be processed online once you have registered your child for the performance, linked below. Skirt payments/approvals are due no later than Tuesday, April 16th.  New skirts will be ordered for you and will be distributed prior to the performance.  


TICKETS:  $15/ticket, or 5 for $65.  Tickets will be available for purchase online via TutuTix starting May 15th @ 9am.  All tickets will be sold online - no tickets will be sold in person or at the door! Ticket proceeds support CSBA and help to cover additional performance costs.  It's going to be a great show - please encourage your family and friends to attend!  We appreciate your support!
