Viewing and Doing Week
We do not allow parents to sit in class each week, with the exception of We Bop, as we have found the children become easily distracted and do not gain the most from the lesson with an audience watching. To give you an opportunity to share in your child’s dance journey we invite you into class once each term. Bring along your family to share this class ‘in action’, take lots of photos and kick your shoes off to join in.
As a Centre who prides itself on supporting the community, opportunities will arise over the course of the year for our students to participate in performances within the community including nursing homes and fete’s. These performances are not compulsory, however are a great opportunity for your child to bring the joy of dance to others in our community. Notice of these performances will be given out to specific classes involved in these performances.
Our Petit Dance, Tiny Tapper’s, Ballet and Jazz students are offered the opportunity to perform in our Annual performance in Term 4. This is not a compulsory performance, however it provides your child with an event to develop Performance skills and share their enjoyment of dance with family and friends. This performance is a local, low key event where the commitments of the children and families is kept minimal. Should you wish for your child NOT to perform please contact the office.
Students up to 8 years are NOT required to attend rehearsals before the performance. We feel added pressure on young children to sit quietly through rehearsals at such a young age can cause undue stress and does not benefit the children. All rehearsals for 3-8 year olds are during normal class time, this provides the children with enough rehearsal time to be able to present their dances with confidence. For this reason it is very important children are at as many classes in the rehearsal period as possible.
Costumes for the Annual Performance are sourced as cheaply as possible and are yours to keep after the performance. Notice of costume costs will be provided to all families in Term 1.
