Missing out... it won't happen
We have ensured that there will be enough seating for all family and friends to attend, no one will miss out on seeing the show. In addition, there is no limit on ticket purchases per family, we expect to be under the capacity for the venue under COVID conditions as we have reduced the number of performers per show.
Is participation in the production compulsory?
No, participation in our annual production is not compulsory, however it is something that all students look forward to and is a great opportunity for them to dance on stage in fantastic costumes. We encourage all students to take part in our annual production as it is very rewarding and their chance to use their skills they have learned throughout the year. Please be aware that learning choreography for the annual production is part of general class lesson time.
I will be away during part of term 3 and/or 4, is that a problem?
Please inform us of the dates you will be away. We will check your absent dates with our teachers and respond as to your participation or an alternative which may include private lessons and/or make up classes where possible.
I will miss one/some of the rehearsals, can I still participate?
Please inform us of the rehearsals you will miss. We will check your absent dates with our teachers and respond as to your participation or an alternative which may include private lessons. All rehearsals are improtant so that all students in your group feel confident on stage. The venue rehearsal is particularly important as this is the only opportunity to practise on stage and to familiarise students with the venue.
I have a little one in the concert and not sure if she/he will go on stage?
With our young dancers 4 and under, we have older students helping them on stage. This is so they feel a little more confident having a big person with them. Our older students also take part in the young dancers rehearsals so they become familiar with the other. We never force a students to go on stage as we want the experience to be a pleasent and long lasting one. If you feel unsure as to whether your dancer is ok for stage please check with your class teacher.
I've heard dance concerts go on forever, how long does your concert go for?
In 2020 each concert show will run for approximately 65 minutes with no interval.
Do you know what show my dancer will be in and the rehearsal times?
Until we have final participant numbers we are not able to work out rehearsal schedules and which show your dancer may be performing in. We do apologise for this as we understand you are juggling many activities and committments. If you have a specific time clash please contact us with details.
Please contact MDA if you have additional questions.
