OPEN PERFORMING GROUP (OPG) provides adult students with rehearsal and performance opportunities in classical ballet. This performing group is made up of students of the Open Ballet Class program at ARC.
There is no audition to be part of OPG. OPG rehearses and performs at the ARC Dance Space.
There is one performance opportunity throughout the year (September – June):
January 14, 21, 28
February 4, 11, 25
March 3, 10
Friday, March 15 5:30-7:00pm
March 16, 2024 4:00pm
March 17, 2024 4:00pm
Rehearsals for OPG have begun. Registration to join is now closed.
There is a 1.5 hour rehearsal commitment for a minimum of 6 to 10 rehearsals on scheduled Sundays with a dress rehearsal prior to performances. OPG Rehearsals and performances are supplemental to regular Open class program.
We recommend students be in dance classes regularly in order to maintain technique, strength, step comprehension, and the endurance, necessary to perform choreography. It is also advised to attend the Sunday Open class prior to rehearsal.
OPG will only operate if there is a minimum number of 8 students registered by the first week of the first scheduled rehearsal. In the event the minimum number of students is not met, a refund (in the form of payment) will be issued to registered OPG students. Once rehearsals have begun, no refunds or registrations are accepted.
