Timeline & Expectations

  • Classes will begin November 5 and will meet weekly on Sundays, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years weeks. Makeup dates for those weeks will be announced before the Course start date. 

  • While we expect everyone to attend the weekly classes, we understand that life happens. If a Course participant needs to miss a rehearsal, they must reach out to Lady AnnaBelle to schedule a private make-up lesson for the missed material.

  • Additional rehearsals may be added closer to the showcase dates to ensure every participant is polished and stage-ready. Showcase dates will be confirmed and announced at a later date.
