In 2018 we are pleased to confirm we will be having 2 concerts.
Southwell Show – Saturday 17th November 2pm – For our DFX 3 & 4yr classes and beginner jazz and beginner ballet classes
Claudelands Show – Saturday 1st December 7pm & Sunday 2nd December 2pm – For all exam classes and open hip hop classes (Junior & Intermediate Acro and Adult classes will not feature in the show this year)
Each class learns a dance which fits into the theme of the concert; the students learn the dance in class after exams in term 3 and polish it in term 4.
Each class purchases a costume and students are required to supply and wear make up for the performances.
Students must attend all lessons as teachers need to sort out and perfect the routine and formations.
For the Southwell Show students attend their regular lessons. There will be a short prizegiving after the performance.
For the Claudelands Show we have a dress rehearsal (in costume) on Saturday and Sunday the weekend before at the Studio and the week leading up to the concert we have practices Monday-Thursday at the Studio running through the show – Act 1 is usually Monday & Wednesday, Act 2 is usually Tuesday & Thursday. The weekend of the concert we have a full dress rehearsal (costume & make up) on Friday & Saturday then a performance Saturday night at 7.00pm and our second performance is on Sunday afternoon at 2.00pm with prizegiving to follow.
Each junior class needs parent helpers to stay with them in the dressing room and keep them occupied. They have the opportunity to go into the audience to watch the rest of the show when their class has performed.
Family and friends can buy tickets from ‘Ticketek’ to watch the fantastic performance!
As a parent please make sure your child attends all lessons and all rehearsals, pays the costume fee, and reads all notices regarding times and extra rehearsals for the concert.
We have a professional photographer and professional videographer come and take photos and video the show. Photos are usually ready to order the week after the concert, DVDs need to be ordered and paid for by the Wednesday prior to the concert weekend and will be available to be collected at our Christmas Party.
This is a very exciting part of the year for students, teachers and parents involved, which obviously requires a lot of hard work and time behind the scenes. If you are able and willing to help out before the concert or on the concert weekends please offer your help.
