See Concert Schedule for the performance time and arrival time for your child's class:
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.
Cost: Junior Concert Levy
Students who attend one class per week: $100 Concert Levy
Students who attend two classes per week (e.g. ballet + jazz/tap): $150 Concert Levy
Students who attend three or more classes per week (e.g. jazz + tap + hip hop): $200 Concert Levy

2022 Junior Concert T-Shirt
Professional video recording of your child’s concert (supplied via digital streaming/download link).
Audience tickets (perfomers do not require a ticket), shoes/tights/undergarments, hair & makeup supplies, professional photographs (option to purchase after Photo Week)
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.
There are no additional rehearsals outside of regular classes. We will commence 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.
Professional Photographs & Video:
Photo Weeks will be held during normal classes during the dates below, 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. Photo Week dates to be confirmed soon.
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.

Register your child’s participation by Wednesday 24th August via the online registration and concert levy payment form below.
Important – please read carefully:
Performing is a team commitment and involves lots of hard work from students and teachers to put together an entertaining performance for family and friends. It requires additional cost to parents, as outlined above, as well as the extra rehearsal time and attendance at all regular classes throughout the term. Please consider if you can meet these requirements before committing to the Showcase.
If your child is available and would like to perform, we strongly recommend the experience. Performances are a young dancer’s dream fulfilled and will be a highlight of your family’s year.
If your child cannot take part in the performance, they will still participate in all classes and will learn the showcase dance with their group. This enables them to all learn many important performance skills, develop their ability to retain choreography and have the very important role of being a rehearsal understudy, which is very helpful to their classmates and teachers. Learning these skills is an important element of dance tuition.
