Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find the Letter of Agreement?
You can find it here in this School Packet -- please return a fully executed copy to Dr. Alexandria Le, Executive Artistic Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Could the performance be scaled to a different length of time?
Yes. While we recommend 45 minutes of uninterrupted time with the students from being seated to dismissal, we like to finish with a Q&A for students, with flexibility of approximately 5-10 minutes added or removed for the performance length.
Could we combine fourth and fifth grade classes?
As educators, you will agree that it is more effective for us to cater to one grade level at a time. That being said, if your combined fourth and fifth grade class is fewer than 150 students, we will consider the exception.
What if we only have room for one assembly?
Please submit the form regardless, and we will try to accommodate the visit. For the one assembly, we would recommend leaving time for students to have an uninterrupted 45 minute assembly.
What do you need from our end?
- Students should be prepared by their teacher(s) about what it means to be a successful and attentive audience.
- Each assembly should have no more than 150 students.
- Students will be in the 4th and 5th grade level (one grade per assembly is recommended).
- Students are preferred to be seated on the ground, not tables.
