Junior Concert Information UPDATE 03/11

We are excited to be almost in the final week of preparation for our 2023 Junior Concert. We acknowledge that this is a busy time for everyone and there has been a large amount of information emailed to you. We endeavour to provide you with all the necessary information in one place to ensure the smooth running of the event and, most importantly, for the safety and enjoyment of our students. Please read the below final details carefully. 

Drop Off Time: 

All performers in the Junior Concert are to be dropped off to the theatre 45 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 Locations:

Creative Dance & Pre-Kindy Dance (including Pre-Kindy/Kindy classes):

  • Drop off at the Theatrette – ground floor, through the main glass doors on the right-hand side.

Kindy Dance, Prep Dance & Creative/Mini Jazz & Tap:

  • Drop off at Stage Door – ground floor, through the main glass doors and continue to the back of the foyer.


Grade 1 at school and upwards (Pre-Primary, Primary, Junior Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Acro 1, Musical Theatre 1 and ALL Company Classes):

  • Drop off inside the main auditorium – please walk your child in to sit in the seats with their class group.

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). If your child has a medical condition or allergy which may require medication, please ensure this is clearly named and sent along in their bag, along with a copy of their action plan. 


Your performer will receive their Concert T-Shirt at the theatre to wear home.


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. 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 for what your performer requires for shoes, tights, hair, and makeup.  

Hair & Makeup:

As we are performing under theatrical lighting, some stage makeup is highly recommended for all performers to ensure their beautiful faces can be seen by the audience. As we are performing in a professional theatre with strong stage lighting, faces on stage can appear very washed out to the audience and on the video. We recommend - matte foundation, blush/bronzer, brown eyeshadow, brown/black eyeliner & mascara, red stay-fast lipstick. Please no coloured eyeshadows or glitter.


All Ballet and Junior Dancers (Creative - Prep) must wear their hair in a neat ballet bun, secured at the centre back of the head with a strong hair elastic, hair net, bun pins and hairspray. You may use a bun donut in the smallest size (max. 6cm) for girls with very fine hair. All other styles should wear a slick pony tail, secured at the back of the head with a strong hair elastic & hairspray. Boys and girls with short hair styles should have hair styled neatly off the face with hairspray/gel.


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. 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.


Tickets: Adults $25 / Children $15 

All attendees occupying a seat will need a ticket. Performers do not require a ticket for their own show. Please show your booking confirmation either on your phone or printed. Ticket sales are online only through the Trybooking link above. 

Junior Concert Information for Creative Dance students:

We understand at age 2 - 3 many students will not yet be ready to perform but we also know some of you might be keen to give it a go. Creative Dance students have the option to choose which Junior Concert (1, 2, 3 or 4 - see times above) to perform in. Please note: If we do not get enough performers for one of the times, we may ask you to change to another group once registrations have closed. 



Performing is completely optional for all students. Creative Dance students who wish to participate may nominate their preferred Junior Concert time. This performance will not be specifically with your usual class group, but you're welcome to chat with other members of your class and choose a concert to perform in together.

Short Performances: 
These are in a short format similar to our 2022 Junior Concerts. Each performance will be 45-60 minutes long and include an entertaining variety of items from some of the classes listed above.


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.

No Rehearsals:

As our little Creative Dancers are not quite at the stage of retaining choreography, they will not be required to remember a dance or attend a rehearsal. All Creative Dance classes will learn a special performance dance in their classes during Term 4 which will be similar to their concert item. They will dance on-stage under the instructions of our Creative Dance teachers doing steps they are familiar with from their classes this year. 


All performers will wear a beautiful costume supplied from the Premier Dance costume wardrobe. Hire is included in the Concert Levy.

Hair & Makeup: 

Girls should wear hair up (ponytail or bun, if possible), slicked back with gel/hairspray and boys/girls with short hair should have it styled neatly off the face. As we are performing under theatrical lighting, stage makeup is highly recommended for all performers to ensure their beautiful faces can be seen by the audience and on the video. Of course, makeup is at your discretion for this age group. 

Other Requirements:

All Creative Dance performers will require ballet shoes & ballet tights.

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. 

Clayfield Photo Week: Monday 23 October - Saturday 28 October

Milton Photo Week: Monday 30 October - Saturday 4 October
