It is our philosophy to provide students with the opportunity to dance on stage not just once a year, but every single term. It has been proven that short term goals improve confidence, keep enthusiasm at a continual high and provide a regular sense of achievement.
Where are the Productions held?
We hold all our productions at private venues, such as school halls that provide staging, aircon, lighting, comfortable seating, convenient amenities, etc. Eg. Edge Hill state school or Cairns High Crosswell Hall.
Who can perform?
ALL students are strongly encouraged to perform as it greatly benefits their confidence, however, there is no pressure to do so.
Is it compulsory?
Absolutely not. However, because the performances are so beneficial to self-esteem and having fun – 99% of students decide to perform every term. Students need something to look forward to – performances give you motivation to attend dance classes with enthusiasm. Everyone needs a reason to do something – performances are a perfect reason to practice dance
What if I choose not to perform?
If you choose NOT to participate in the end of term production for whatever reason, students will still be included in all classroom activities and given a “pretend” stage position. However you MUST inform Reception by the 3rd week of the term due to choreographing and costuming purposes, otherwise we assume your decision is a ‘no’. Pulling out at the last minute is not acceptable – it can affect the confidence of the rest of the class. Therefore please check your diary to determine your availability for the compulsory full dress rehearsals and the production date. If a student misses 3 classes or more within a term – the student will not be permitted to perform (refer to ABSENCES section).
Note: If you choose NOT to perform – you are not expected to hire a costume and not permitted to attend rehearsals (due to its potential affect on others and their stage positions on stage.) Non-performers receive their Certificate of Achievement/Trophy during the last week of classes at the Studio.
