Concert Time 2023

 

 The best time of the dance year is concert time!  We can't wait to experience another concert with our dance family. 

 

Who is involved with concert?

 

Any student from Ballet 2 upwards is invited to participate in the concert. No students under 3 years of age are required to participate.  Only selected adult classes are included (some adults are a bit shy!)

 

How much does it cost?

 

So that you don't incur a lot of costs just before Christmas time, we charge a small production/rehearsal and costume hire fee each term for each genre.  These non-refundable fees are charged to all students to ensure that costs are covered.
