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.
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.
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.
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
