The Elite Corps de Ballet of Long Island

The Elite Corps de Ballet of Long Island - a non-for-profit ballet company that  was established by Artistic Director, Susan Nachtrab, in the Summer of 2008, in hopes of creating strong connections with local dance schools and students through the presentation of an annual ballet performance of “The Nutcracker”.  It has been in recent years the Mrs. Nachtrab has felt a longing to branch out to the community and to other local dance schools in order to form a bond, whereas dance students from the local community, regardless of their primary source of dance instruction, may be able to grow as young artists, performers and students while gaining a sense of incomparable professionalism. 


All Fundraising Money is PAST DUE!



Costume Needs

 

  1. All female dancers will be required to have and wear a nude camisole with clear straps underneath their costumes.

 

  1. All female dancers are required to buy and wear a pair of “performance earrings”.  These are special costume earrings that may be cheaply purchased.  They should be bright, simple studs made from rhinestone or cubic zirconium.  Backs should be reinforced.  Please do not wear expensive earrings.  You may NOT wear dangling earring.  You may NOT wear any other form of jewelry (including necklaces, bracelets, rings or watches).  Party Moms are the only performers who may wear ornate period costume jewelry unless noted further by Miss Susan.  For examples of “performance earrings” please speak to Miss Susan.  If you are playing a boy/ mouse/soldier – do not wear earrings.
