This year’s concert rehearsal will take place on Friday the 15th of December at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Ballarat. The first half will commence at 9:30am, with the second half following at 12:00pm.
There will be a brief backstage theatre tour for all new parents interested at 9:00am.
Students are to be signed in and out at the back door of the theatre, with no parents permitted to enter, excluding parents of pre-schoolers and those completing the tour.
We will be catching the train to Ballarat and walking to Her Majesty’s Theatre – any students whose parents cannot bring them to Ballarat for the rehearsal are welcome to take the train with us. Teachers and helpers will be present on both trips to supervise students. Students will require a Myki card for the trip.
We will be catching the 8:24am train to Ballarat, and arriving back at Bacchus Marsh Station at 4:25pm. There is a list on the noticeboard for the names of all students that would like to catch the train to rehearsal; please add your child’s name to register them.
Hair & Makeup
Makeup requirements for the end of year concert are:
- Brown eye shadow on the eyelid, with light/white above
- Winged eye liner
- Dark pink lipstick and blush
It is important that makeup is applied heavier than everyday makeup in performances – due to the lighting and effects used on stage, dancers can look ‘washed out’, with their features not distinguishable if makeup is too light. There are photo examples of the concert hair and makeup on the noticeboard in the studio foyer.
While it is important that dancers are backstage with adequate time before their performances, we ask that students are not left back stage when they are not preparing to perform. Students will be supervised in the green room immediately before performing, but will not be supervised by staff while in change rooms.
Men in changerooms
As per previous years, we are requesting that no non-dancing males enter the backstage area or change rooms.
This can be a sensitive issue – we are in no way attempting to be derogatory or discriminatory and are happy to allocate separate dressing rooms for students who need to be assisted by their father or male relative. Please contact us if you require these arrangements to be made.
Concert DVD orders
DVDs of the concert are available for purchase! They are a fantastic souvenir of the day and make a great keep sake that can be watched in the years to come.
To pre-order a DVD, please place $35.00 in an envelope clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Our annual photo day will be taking place on Saturday the 18th of November at the studio. The schedule for this day is on the noticeboard.
Photos will be available for purchase at the studio on Tuesday 28th of November, between 4:00-6:00pm.
