Junior Concert Information 08/08
Each class (see top of page for participating age groups) will perform one item in one of the performance times listed above.
We revise the structure of our concerts each year to suit the size of the school, availability of theatre, school dates etc. While we do our best to avoid clashes with other important events in our students' calendars, this is unfortunately not always possible as it is such a busy time of year.
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.
We are sure you will have lots of questions about the concerts, especially if this is your first year with us. We try to provide as much information as possible up front to ensure everything is covered on this page (sorry, we know it's a long one!), however if you have any questions after reading it, please don't hesitate to contact us.
We understand concerts are a big commitment at a very busy time of year, and that they can be daunting for young dancers and first-time performers. Please reach out to our team (who have been coordinating concerts like this for almost 30 years!) with your concerns and we will do our best to help ease your worries. Most importantly, we want all dancers to have the very best performance experience and to have the opportunity to show you what they have been working on during their classes this year. However, our concerts are always optional for all dancers, and no one will be disadvantaged in any way if you choose not to take part.
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. There are no additional 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.
Clayfield Photo Week: Monday 23 October – Saturday 28 October
Milton Photo Week: Monday 30 October – Saturday 4 November
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.
