Radiance Performance teams

Welcome to being part of the our performance teams. Our performance teams are integral to the Radiance family and are our go to student who are the face of the studio. This coming year is sure to be a big one and your teachers are excited to start creating some amazing dance numbers with you.

Expectations

All dancers are expected to abide by Radiance's Code of Conduct (here's a link Safe Dance lessons Toowoomba - Dance classes Toowoomba (radianceacademytoowoomba.com) ).

 

In addition there are some expectations that are specific for performance team members.

We Expect:

  • students attend all performance team lessons
  • parents will email if their student is unable to attend class due to illness or events
  • parents must give 1 month notice in email if their child is unable to attend a performance (this is to allow sufficient time to adjust spacing)
  • families will organise transportation to and from performance venues or organise carpooling
  • students must wear their performance team jacket and black studio 7 pants to all events
  • students will have the correct shoes, tights, make-up, & hairstyle for their items

Dancewear Basics

During class you can wear your normal uniform and dance shoes appropriate to the style of the dance piece you are rehearsing.

 

In addition to your costume dancers will be required to provide their own shoes and tights appropriate for the style of their item. All of these items can be purchased at the studio.

 

*Often these items sell fast when we have an upcoming event. To make sure you are ready for performing it's a good idea you check you have what you need as soon as you know the style of your items. Be sure you also check that your shoes are clean before each event.
