Show Day Information for Saturday 19th March
Dancer’s performing in the show on Saturday 19th March will take part in a dress rehearsal/technical run through from 1.00pm – 3.00 pm before the 4.30 pm public performance.
Please drop your dancer off via the Stage Door at the time shown here:
Grade 5 – 11.45 am
Grade 4 – 12.00 pm
Wednesday Freestyle & Lyrical Contemporary – 12.15 pm
Monday Pre-Grade 1/Acrobatic Arts/Grade 1 – 12.30 pm
Wednesday Night Pre-Primary/Primary – 2.15 pm
No-one without authorisation is allowed backstage: Simply Dance Academy teachers, Chaperones and theatre staff only
Students will be cared for by the chaperones from the drop off time until the end of the public performance (approximately 6.30 pm)
The dancer’s will have tea and a 45-minute rest after the dress rehearsal/technical run through. Please provide your dancer with a packed tea. No coloured drinks allowed in case of any accidents with costumes (we have no spare costumes).
Ensure your dancer has everything they need for the performance (please refer to your costume email sent between 30.1.22 and 6.2.22). Put names in shoes, bags, coats etc. We don’t take responsibility for any property that is lost or mislaid.
All performers must arrive with their hair dressed for their first number. This is a ballet bun for the majority of dancers. All dancers should have a spare bobble, hair brush, hair pins and safety pins in their dance bag.
If you wish your child to wear a little make up then this should be done before they come to the theatre. We don’t recommend make-up for any students under Grade 2 level.
Mobile phones and other electrical devices are allowed backstage but must not be used for taking photographs or filming anywhere in the theatre without prior consent of the principal and theatre management. Child safeguarding and theatre regulations are very clear about this. Please remind your dancer before dropping them off.
After the show, all dancers (except Grade 4 and 5), will be chaperoned to the foyer where you can pick them up. The hand over to parents and guardians can take some time so we ask that everyone remains patient. Your child’s safety is important to us.
Any costumes bought and paid for by parents, but sourced by us, will be given to your dancer to keep after the show.
We hope everyone thoroughly enjoys the show😊
