Acting for Dance/Choreography: Where we put it all together. The directors and teachers of Redding City Ballet are very involved in the Redding ArtHop series and the producers of Redding’s annual Nutcracker at the Cascade Theatre. Both groups routinely offer performance opportunities throughout the year, as well as during the school’s summer sessions. Parents will be invited for an in-house showing at the end of the series; dates to be announced.

A 45-minute lunch break will be provided each day. (Students must supply their own food; drinks will be available for a minimal charge.)
