General Information

Due to the unpredictable & serious nature of COVID-19, we do not believe that dance schools can safely put on live audience shows as we traditionally do (especially with the recent cases in the Wollondilly). The risk to our performers, staff & audience members is too great as social distancing cannot be adhered to. We also do not want venerable people (immune-compromised or elderly) to have to miss out on such a special event. 

So...

We are taking things to the next level....

We are making our students feel like stars, giving them a professionally filmed concert experience. We have award winning country music video creator Jay Seeney coming in to create a music video for each class, equiped with state of the art custom lighting tailored for each class. Each student will be featured within the film along with wide shots, so you get to see plenty of your child shining on film. You can check out some of Jay's videos here.

Turn over should be 1-2 weeks maximum on the entire film, each family will receive a streamable and downloadable copy so it can be kept and accessed forever.

Please see a video example below which is some of our teachers filmed by Jay. 

And to take things to the next level... again...

We will be hosting VIP premier nights as soon as the films are complete, so students get to see themselves on the big screen for the very first time, with a red carpet and paparazzi to complete the experience. 

"Bloom" our 2020 concert theme

We feel as though 2020 was a year that for us, as a studio, we felt like we had to re-start... re-bloom. We have named the concert Bloom as we feel as though we have flourished out of some pretty dark days & the concert is reflective of this with some feel-good, happy dances and music. 

 

DATE: 5th & 6th of December

LOCATION & SCHEDULE

Friday: Tahmoor Studio

Saturday & Sunday : Chevalier College

Drop off instructions:

Sticking to our COVID safe plan & having the least amount of people within the centre as possible, we ask that parents to a kiss & drop outside. Our staff will be out the front to assist with getting students within the community centre. 

Rough Schedule (subject to change):

5th of 6th of December

Each dance will take about 20-30 minutes to film with about 6 takes required.

If students have an extended break between dances, students are welcome to stay & we will be sure to keep them occupied. 

Please note Boys Crew, Singing & Musical Theatre classes will be  held on the 4th of December at the Tahmoor studio

COST ASSISTANCE

How have we already subsidised the cost and what can you do to help?

Chocolates

We are asking that students take home a box of fundraising chocolates to sell to assist in the production (keeping the cost as low as possible for you). These will be handed out in week 2 of term 4 & we will need the money back in week 4 of term 4.

Sponsorshop

We are also looking for some class sponsors - $50 per class & your add will be placed at the beginning of the specific class video. Please contact us if you are interested or know someone who might be. 

As you can imagine, the cost of the film alone, plus lighting & staff wages is astronomical, so we are trying to raise as much money as we can to keep the cost low for our families. 

STAY UP TO DATE!

We have just released our Industry Dance Co. App - available on the itunes apple store and android googleplay. 

ITUNES: download here

GOOGLEPLAY: download here

We encourage you to download the app and login using your parent portal (contact us if you need help) as concert information and reminders will be updated on the app.

We also have a parents page which allows you to connect and ask questions to other families, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1695415627428027
