We do have big timetable changes, teacher changes, class time changes and much more.  Generally the first few days of our priority bookings, we may unearth some problems.   If you encounter a drama on the website, please let us know.

Tickets are on sale at the Empire Theatre.  Don't buy tickets until you know which concert and whether you require a performer ticket? Please make sure you know which concert your child is in before you purchase tickets. We also will require 2 parents/class to sign up as parent support. They will be entitled to a cheaper ticket but you need to get your discount voucher from the studio. If your child is dancing in one Act only, they will require a performer ticket to sit and watch the rest of the show. There is a very real possibility we will sell out this year so please get your tickets as soon as you know which concert and how many tickets your require. There are three options to purchase your ticket

Costuming for Concert.

 

Concert is a very exciting time for all. The students get all dressed up and have their hair and make up done. But there is no need for you to stress about costumes, we've got you covered.

 

There is no need for you to need to know how to sew. We make this as easy as possible
for you. We charge you a small hire fee and we will do the leg work for you. We will get costumes ready; we will give it to you in a bag with your name on it and all you have to do is keep a hold of it until the day of the concert. Then once the concert is over you will
leave it with the support parent and it will be given back to us to wash and store.

 

The hire fee is only $45 and has been added to your account.

 

We can't wait to see all the students in costumes on stage.
