When: Sunday, the 26th of November
Student Arrival: 11:15 am with a rehearsal following
Showtime: 2 pm
Approximate Conclusion: 3:30 pm
Run-Through of the Day: Students will be dropped off at the side stage door at their arrival time to be checked-in, they will be escorted by staff to their change room. Parents are to leave the venue and return at approx. 1.30 to find their ticketed seat. During this time students will run a stage and costume rehearsal to get them familiar with the space and plot their dances on the stage (it gives our teachers the opportunity to build some serious confidence before the big show!). This is students opportunity to watch eacother's performance and for our photographer to grab some snaps. Students will then head back to their change rooms with their room leaders & assistants to do any hair and make up touches and prepare for their performance. After their performance students are able to be collected from the foyer to take photos with their families and teachers.
Ticketing: Our tickets will go on sale on the 27th of October at 10am. These will be available via the IPAC Box Office on this link. Please ensure you purchase tickets for the correct concert and please be quick to buy your tickets, as last year we sold out faster then the Taylor Swift Concert (not quite, but they did get snapped up quickly!). If you have any uncertainties, please reach out to us for confirmation. For any ticketing issues, please contact the IPAC Box Office as we, the studio, have no control over the ticketing process. Ticket prices are $45 for adults & $38 for children.
Hair and Makeup:
Hair - Please have your dancer’s hair in a middle part, straight, sleek low ponytail. Use plenty of Hairspray and/or Gel to insure there are no fly-away's and each students hair is extremely neat. If your child's hair is too short for this style, please let us know, and we are happy to discuss an alternative. Click here for a hair tutorial.
Boys - We would like them to come with neat hair. Whether this means tying back longer hair or styling short hair with gel. Please reach out if you have any questions regarding this.
