Drop Off Time: All performers in the Junior Concert are to be dropped off to the theatre 30 minutes prior to their Concert start time (see performer arrival time above). Please allow plenty of time for parking and walking in as students need to be checked in with their group at the drop off time.
Drop Off Location (N.B. This is different to the Senior Concerts!):
Toddler - Prep age students to be dropped off by ONE parent in the downstairs foyer (entry next to the canteen). Stay to the right and follow the signs to the rear of the foyer to the drop off area. Students will find their class group and take a seat here. Please drop and go at this point as quickly as possible and keep moving back around to the auditorium entry and take your seat to watch the show.
All other performers to be dropped off by ONE parent to the upstairs foyer. Follow the signs to the drop off area. Students will find their class group and take a seat here. Please drop and go at this point as quickly as possible and head downstairs to the auditorium entry and take your seat to watch the show.
Backstage Area: Only performers and staff will be permitted backstage and in dressing rooms. We understand your concerns if this is your first concert with us and we assure you that your child will be cared for and supervised at all times by Premier Dance staff. The safety and wellbeing of our students is our top priority.
Performers will be taken for water/food and toilet breaks as required and can watch other performances on backstage TVs and may be taken to the balcony to watch parts of the performance.
All Premier Dance staff are up to date on First Aid and CPR training. Should your child be unhappy or unwell, we will contact you so that you can come and meet them. Please relax and enjoy the show!
What to Bring: Please ensure ALL belongings brought & worn to the theatre by students are clearly named. Send a named water bottle and non-messy snacks (no nut products please).
Your performer will receive their Concert T-Shirt in class this week. Please NAME it immediately so that they can wear it on concert day. We cannot take responsibility for misplaced Concert T-Shirts which have not been named.
Performers should arrive at the theatre with makeup and hair done, tights on and correct footwear in their bag. It is not necessary to wear your class leotard or uniform but please wear clothes over the top of your tights (Concert T-Shirt & bottoms). Students in multiple items in one show should bring all tights & shoes in their bag and we will help them put on the correct ones for each item. Please advise staff at drop off if this applies to your child.
Please see the Performer Requirements page here on our website for what your performer requires for shoes, tights, hair, and makeup.
Before the Show: Once you have dropped off your performers you are welcome to use the outside amphitheatre to wait until the show begins. The canteen at the bottom of the amphitheatre will be open selling cold drinks and snacks and a coffee van will be open outside the Chapel. Please ensure you have taken your seat in the auditorium well before the show start time as the doors will be closed once the show has begun.
After the Show: All performers under 12 will be brought to the stage to be collected. Please remain in your seats at the end of the show and listen for the announcement of your child's class. One parent to come to the stage to collect your performer.
Junior Concert Information 12/08
Each class (see top of page for participating age groups) will perform one item in one of the performance times listed above.
As we hold a number of short shows, regretfully we cannot always get siblings classes in the same Concert. However, you will be eligible for TWO complimentary tickets to one show if you are in this situation. Refer to the Concert Schedule, which is linked above, for the performance details for all classes.
No extra rehearsals except for usual classes during the term. Regular attendance during Term 3 and Term 4 is expected if you choose to participate. Performing is optional for all students.
Students are supervised by Premier Dance staff throughout all performances. You will drop off your child with their group at the drop off time (see Concert Schedule) and collect them from the stage after the completion of their Concert.

*N.B. The Junior Concert Levy is non-refundable
There is NO costume making or buying required, as we supply all costumes. Most dance schools require you to purchase all costumes outright, which can cost $150 per item and add up to hundreds of dollars. Other schools may ask you to purchase the materials and sew your own costumes. The Premier Dance Academy owns an extensive costume wardrobe and regularly purchases brand new, professionally made dance costumes of the highest quality. Hire of your child’s costumes is included in the Concert Levy. Some of this levy will go towards new costumes, replacement of damaged costumes, repairs, and cleaning of costumes after the concerts. We cannot sell the costumes individually as each belongs to a complete group.
We will be starting in-class group dance learning during classes in Term 3 along with the normal class content. If you commit to performing in the Concert, it is essential that your child has regular attendance at their classes wherever possible. If your child is absent for multiple classes in a row, they will miss out on learning large sections of the choreography. We invite all Junior & Junior/Pre-Inter Tap & Singing classes to a rehearsal on Sunday 3rd November at our Milton Studios. For all other classes, there are no extra rehearsals outside of regular classes.
Professional Photographs & Video:
Photo Weeks will be held during normal classes in Term 4 with professional photographs taken by Ranald Simmonds Photography. These will be available for ordering via their website after this time. These are an optional extra for those who would like to purchase individual photos of their child in costume. All students will have the experience of professional photo shoot in costume regardless of whether or not they have chosen to perform.
Milton Photo Week: Monday 21st - Saturday 26th November
Clayfield Photo Week: Monday 28th November - Saturday 3rd December
All Concerts will be recorded by professional dance videographer, Limelight Multimedia. The recording of your child’s Concert will be provided to you via digital download link. This is included in your Concert Levy.
Each class style has shoe, tights, undergarment & hair/makeup requirements. Click here for detailed information.
