Dance is an art form created for presentation before an audience and is a skill that needs to be practiced to be done well, just like anything else. Students are in encouraged to audition for the Alameda Civic Ballet’s Nutcracker and ABA’s Spring Recital. A passion for performing and the skills it involves represents an important part of the performing arts education that we strive to teach and we hope that it will serve them well throughout their lives. Our students are the most precious seeds that we can plant to ensure a garden of arts for the future and to develop the audiences of tomorrow.

Students who wish to participate in a performance must, along with a parent or guardian, read and sign a Performance Agreement. The Performance Agreement includes a commitment to attend all relevant classes, rehearsals and performances. In signing a Performance Agreement, both students and parents are agreeing to take their commitment to ABA seriously and to make classes, rehearsals, and performances a top priority in their lives.

Recital Fees

All Alameda Ballet Academy students are invited to perform in ABA’s Spring Recital. Students who agree to perform will be requested to pay a recital fee, amount to be determined.

Parental Assistance

“Many hands make light work” and successful performances can only take place with the assistance of many volunteers

Volunteer sign-up sheets for the ABA Spring Recital are now posted in the studio lobby! We ask that every family donate time to help put on this production by signing up for a task. Our volunteers are essential to the success of our performances and keeping the performing arts alive for all of our children. We all know that many hands make light work, and successful performances can only take place with the assistance of many volunteers!
