Our Tiny Tots classes will hold a special Christmas Performance Class in the last week of Term 4 during which they may dress in a Christmas themed costume and perform for parents and friends.

Investment

The all-inclusive production fee covers the costs associated with dress rehearsal and general rehearsal; artistic development; choreography, theatre hire, costume hire, a souvenir DVD per student, audition attendance for L1 upwards etc. Fees range from $150 - $370 depending on the dancer's level.

Parent Production Committee (PPC)

The school has had a wonderful show of support from parents over the years helping out in all facets of production. We are most appreciative of parents who help out every year, and always warmly welcome and appreciate new support. Our Parent Production Committee members will receive an MSCD credit voucher ($50.00) in recognition of their time and effort. But most importantly they will be part of a dedicated team who work together to help create the magic of our end of year production.

Would you like to join the 2017 PPC? You will have an opportunity on the registration form to let us know which area(s) you are interested in. 

Term 4 Timetable Variations

The nature of mounting a full-length story ballet requires students of various ages to work together in difference scenes. We kindly ask for parents & students' co operation with working to a schedule which is reviewed on a weekly basis. The updated schedule will be posted on our website every Tuesday afternoon. Rehearsals will be shorter in the start of term, expanding to longer sessions for Academic, Pre Professional and Adult divisions when the choreography is ready.

PRE BALLET & PREPARATORY DIVISIONS

Class time for Ballet Play to Preparatory 3 will remain as published for most of the term. We may ask students to attend some extra rehearsals from time to time, and this would be advised by email.
Please note there are two compulsory extra rehearsals: The General Rehearsal and the Dress Rehearsal, see below.

Dancer's Commitment to Rehearsals - Important, please read carefully.

Preparing for our annual concert is a team effort and we do need 100% commitment from all dancers, and the support of each dancers' parents to ensuring their child's attendance and punctuality. Late or absent dancers slow the progress of the whole production and make it difficult for their classmates to learn and practice patterns, partner work and spatial formations. We thank you in advance for your understanding and ask that you ensure your child is able to meet the attendance requirements below before signing up.

Any student who misses the General Rehearsal or the Dress Rehearsal for any reason will be immediately dismissed from the concert and will forfeit the fee paid.  It is unsafe and unprofessional for dancers to go on stage without attending these two very important rehearsals.
