Dance School News


 We can't wait to show you our amazing concert coming up soon!  The dancers are having such a fun time getting the dance items ready.  There is so much happening this week. 

  • This week we only need students attend on Sunday who are in show 2.
  • Decide what size concert t-shirt you would like
  • Pick your preference for concert USB vs digital link
  • Purchase your tickets if you haven't already done that

Why do we choose these costumes? have you wondered?


We always get lots of questions at this time of year about our costume policy.  The staff spend countless hours each year picking, and preparing costumes for the students.  But we have had questions about what costumes Radiance considers for our shows.  Surprisingly, a large percentage of the costumes available are not a great fit for our studio.  We make choices based upon modesty and class body sizes as well as industry dance trends.   The golden rule for our studio is based upon the traditional and beautiful pancaked ballet tutu.  If a costume shows more booty than a tutu would it is scratched, if a costume shows less skin than a tutu does, it is in!


Although the 2 piece midriff dance costumes are a firm favorite at most dance locations, they don't always suit every body.  At Radiance, to have a dance body, is to have a body the dances.  But not all bodies suit midriff dance costumes.  So we have made the decision that our group costumes will be suitable for all dance bodies!


Show 2 Rehersal this sunday


This is a reminder that everyone in Show 2 will be needed on Sunday for a costume rehearsal in full hair and make-up.


Time change - we ran ahead last week and have decided to shorten the practice time this Sunday to give everyone a morning off.


Act 1 11:30am to 2:00pm

Act 2  2:00pm - 4:30pm

best practice for sunday


For Sunday we need to follow strict Covid-19 Safety rules to keep everyone safe and keep our numbers down.


  • Don't attend if you are unwell.
  • Use the check in app at the entrance to the waiting room. 
  • Parent support are required to arrive 15 minutes earlier than their crew to set up a space and get ready to receive their teams.  Meet with your students in the waiting room and then during the transition break we will set up in the big studio.  
  • NO additional parents/siblings are to be in the building due to restricted numbers.
  • Students who are staying all day please bring snacks and drinks to keep you going.  
  • Unless going straight home from the studio in costume, please don't go in and out of the studio in costume including to Drakes! 
  • If your student has multiple changes can you please make up a document and stick it onto your dream duffel or costume bag like the following...

    Can someone please clarify, with the changes to the schedule, when Hip Hop 3 actually need to be at the studio?

    Also, for the concert day on the 13th, what time students in Show 2 need to arrive at the Empire?

    I know you provide all this information, but I have trouble finding it, understanding it and keeping up with the changes.

    Thank you
