Will there be a performance and costumes?
PAAM School & Ballet Conservatory: All students enrolled in the Spring session (with the exception of non-performing classes indicated on class list) perform in our Annual Showcase presented at the Marin Center Showcase Theatre, complete with professional lighting and sound. This is a ticketed event and all attendees must purchase admission. Costumes for this performance are paid for by the parent and are yours to keep. We do our best to make affordable selections when choosing costumes.
Spring Workshops: For some classes (mainly theater) there will be an informal demonstration held during the last class meeting. There are no costumes; students may wear dress-code appropriate class attire or theater arts students may create a costume from their home wardrobe.
Summer Programs: Each week-long program culminates in a performance, excluding the Dance Intensives and some dance workshops. Admission is free for family and friends to attend. Costumes are mainly created from your child’s home wardrobe, with accents from our costume stock when available.
Youth Musicals: Each production culminates in a performance or multiple performances, complete with professional lighting and sound. These are ticketed events and all attendees must purchase admission. Costumes are provided by PAAM from our costume stock, with exception of footwear and any items contributed from your already existing wardrobe (if applicable).
