Dreams in Motion - Where dreams come to dance.
Hair and Makeup:
Hair - For out Twirlers it is required that they come hair in a slick high ponytail at the top of their head. If you are comfortable, please use hair spray or gel to help with slicking. If your little one has too short hair to achieve this hairstyle, please let us know, and we're happy to discuss alternatives. Here is a link if you need any help with getting a slick pony tail or the placement.
For our Twirler boys, we would like them to come with neat hair. Whether this means tying back longer hair or styling short hair with gel.
Makeup - Makeup for our Twirlers is 100% at the discretion of parents and whatever they are most comfortable with. Please do as little or as much as you are comfortable with. Pink lips only if you are doing lipstick. We have a dance makeup kit's available for purchase through the studio which includes foundation, setting powder, beauty blender, eye shadow, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrow pencil & pink lipstick for $80. Please see us in the studio to purchase so we can colour match your child. Here is a link for appropriate make up (just no red lipstick please!)
Shoes & Stockings:
Stockings and dance shoes are available for purchase in the studio. Please let us know if you require shoes or stockings. Purchase what you need as soon as possible as we are likely to sell out. Here is a list of the required accessories:
Mini Twirlers (18 months to 3 years): Black Jazz Shoes & Tan Stockings
Tiny Twirler Jazz (3 to 5 years): Black Jazz Shoes & Tan Stockings
Tiny Twirler Ballet (3 to 5 years): Ballet Shoes & Pink Ballet Stockings
Tiny Acro & Little Tiny Monkeys: Tan Stockings & Bare Feet
All shoes & stockings can be purchased in the studio.
In the first few weeks of Term 4, your dancer will begin trying on their dance costumes. If you're away during this time, please reach out to schedule a fitting. Once your dancer is sized up, we will begin bagging the costumes with your child's name and a Disney princess on the bag. Our Disney princess labelling coincides with our room allocations at our end-of-year concert. Each room will have an allocated Disney princess. On the day, we'd like your little one to come dressed in their first costume. Here is a link to the show run order. Having them dressed in their first costume allows for a smooth handover, and we won't need to rush to get the kids dressed. Please do not wear your costume at home as any damage is irreplaceable. You must also bring a spare pair of clothing in a bag to go home in as we will be taking the costumes off students at the conclusion of the concert.
T-Shirt Ordering: Purchase one of our 2024 concert t-shirts that you may wear to & from the concert and to our finale. Please contact the studio if you haven't already ordered (& been charged) for a shirt and you would like one.
Please put your Twirler’s name on all items they will bring to the concert. Last year, we had a massive bag of lost property that most items never found their way back home. This includes labelling dance bags, all IDC uniforms, individual shoes, stockings, drink bottles, etc.
Costume Bag and All Costumes and Accessories
Correct Jazz and Ballet Shoes
Some Hair and Makeup Touch-Up Equipment
Mess-Free Snack and Water Bottle
IDC Uniform to go home in, e.g., Concert T-shirt & Tights or Shorts
If students do not arrive with the correct shoes or stockings we will be emergency hiring out our studio pairs and will need to be paid for at the conclusion of the concert.
Industry Dance Co. presents 'Wildest Dreams' for our Mini and Tiny Twirlers concert at Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. (Click here for map & address) Proudly sponsored by JSA Carpentry

Student Arrival: 9:45 am at the side stage door for check-in
Showtime: 10:30 am
Approximate Conclusion: 11:30 am
If your dancer is one of our Mini Twirlers (18 months - 3 years), please note that your student's dance will be one of the opening number's of the concert. We will have a short intermission after the the mini's performances so our smallest dancers can be picked up straight away and watch the rest of the show or head home. Mini's are to be checked-out from they foyer area. We do this to ensure the day isn't too long or overwhelming for our Mini Twirlers.
Students will be dropped off at the stage door & checked in. Parents will escort their children to their designated change room & meet their Room Leader & Disney Princess (they are going to be lucky enough to meet the real Moana & Elsa!) Parents will then leave to find their assigned seat in the audience. Please note no parents are permitted in the change-room areas as it is a requirement of the theatre. Students will then play games, practice their dance & prepare. They will then perform their number's - if they are in 2 numbers our staff and assistants will get them changed. All students will then be collected from they foyer area for photos with their families and teachers.
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.
Media Package and Photo Day:
Signing up for our 2023 Media Package is still available. This includes x5 edited individual dance portraits in costumes, a copy of the concert video & all stage photos for $75 or is capped at $100 if you have more than one child wanting the package. The photo day will be on November 19. All elements of the media package will be emailed to our families who purchased approximately 2-3 weeks after the concert. Registration has officially closed, please contact the studio if you have any Questions.
Practice: We would love for our Twirlers to practice their routines at home! Here is the link that contains both their music and in-class videos. If you have any difficulties, please reach out.
Make use of our Facebook Parents Page and reach out to our veteran dance parents for advice.
Calm those nerves! Have everything packed and organised the week before the concert. We want this performance to be easy for parents and fun for performers. So, make sure you keep the day stress-free and use us teachers for help if needed.
Please rest assured that your little ones are in our best care at the concert. If at any time they become distressed or anything is to happen, we will be sure to call you right away.
