Final Concert Update – 1 sleep to go…..

Hi Everybody,

It has been a busy but extremely productive week and I am excited to see how much all the dancers have grown and improved over the past 9 weeks.  I am one very proud teacher and look forward to seeing what happens over the weekend.

Arrival Times:

If we could all arrive at 8.30 am at the Octagon Theatre, UWA to settle into the appropriate dressing rooms and then start promptly at 9.00 am with the Finale.  All students need to arrive wearing their Full Time for Dance Uniform including their Hair Ties, black shoes and black socks.  Please note, little black socks are required for all numbers when wearing black shoes if they are NOT wearing black tights.  Once again, after your dancer’s routines are finished, you can go home for a rest.

Please arrive back at the Octagon Theatre by 4.30 pm for Concert.  Concert starts at 5.30 pm, however, doors open at 5.00 pm for parents and family/friends comfort and convenience.

Presentation:

 No jewellery of any description is to be worn on Saturday at all.  This includes NO earrings please.  NO nail polish please.

Please ensure that no underwear can be seen under any costumes.  Juniors, I don’t think bras/half tops are required with any of you as the costumes are all modest and well covering.  This stops them from hanging out during the performances.

Raffle:

Thank you to everyone who donated Raffle items.  We have managed to pull together 19 prizes.  Our best ever so far!  Tickets will be on sale before the show and during interval.  Raffle tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.  All proceeds go towards our Christmas Party where every dancer receives a gift from Father Christmas. I love this party!!

Photos/DVD:

As you know, our photographer, Cornelius Nijsen is coming Saturday morning so please have full hair and makeup complete prior to the full dress rehearsal commencing.

The Concert will be recorded by Paul Frisina.   Please note that the audience are NOT allowed to take photos or videos footage taken during the Concert for this reason.  Also, some still photos will be taken during the performance from the opposite side to the videographer by Zac Newman.

DVD and Photo orders will continue to be accepted up until handover to the appropriate technicians.

Please Note:  Concert Tickets are still available, however, sales close after the Full Dress Rehearsal.  Remember that there are NO DOOR SALES.

Costumes:

Please label all costumes clearly and put in an appropriate costume bag.  Ensure all dancers have bobby pins to secure all head bands and head pieces please.

Juniors/Intermediates… Please add elastic to the one sided leotards and cover with foundation (to blend to skin colour).  Also, pin your curly hair scrunchie in securely as I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANY ON STAGE!!

I do hope that I have covered everything.  Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0401 866 811.  Remind your dancer to Practise, Practise, Practise and the show will be amazing.  ONLY 2 SLEEPS TO GO!!

See you tomorrow.  Regards, Nicole
