Location – Kailash Mital Theatre, Carleton University

If you wish to attend both performances, you will require a separate ticket for each show. This fee is to assist us in covering the cost of the auditorium and staffing for the day. If your dancer is under the age of 8, then they will be seated with their class in the audience to watch the performance. All other dancers are required to remain backstage, but will have an opportunity to watch during dress rehearsal!

You will have received an email detailing which performance(s) your dancer is performing in. If you are unsure, please refer to the list!
