Summer Performance information !
The most exiting event of the year is coming! Saturday 17th of June and Saturday 8th of July our little ballerinas will perform on a fabulous stage in front of an audience 🙂
Participation in the stage performance is a great way to build a child’s confidence and improve their self-esteem along with overcoming shyness. It also gives them an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
All kids will participate in a performance, apart from ‘baby and mummy’ classes, as they are still too little to do the stage show, but there time will come ;).
Please buy your tickets in advance, as we need to know how many beautiful costumes to prepare for the show.
Here is some information you need to know about the performance.
The performance usually combines:
- A Ballet Demonstration – with participation of all our students, to show their learning achievements. Kids who prepared for their ballet exams will demonstrate the exercises from the exams, so you will have the opportunity to see their skills.
- A Short interval. So kids have time to change into their special dance costumes.
- Show time – This is the actual stage show, where kids will be dressed up in costumes and dance on stage. Unlike most of other dance schools in UK we don’t ask our students to buy stage costumes (which are generally £40-£50 each) to participate in a show. We offer our children free use of costumes on the day of the performance . The costumes will be handed out to children on the dress rehearsal and should be returned to the school staff straight after the performance. The failure to return the outfits will lead to a replacement cost of £50.00 per costume.
After the “Show time” each child will be required to come back and put their costume into their bag, so we can confirm that the costume with all its accessories is there.
You can prepare kids with nice makeup, using lipstick, eyeliner, mascara etc., as they are now performing artists! 🙂
Uniform: Ballet skirt, Leotard, Ballet Shoes, Ballet Tights and Pink Hairnet.
Their Hair should be properly brushed and tied back in a bun. Use many clips and hair gel to make hairstyle neat and pretty. Here is the video tutorial how to do classical hair bun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SfN2LFiWQ0
Jewelry must not be worn during the rehearsal and performance!
Please supply your child with a bottle of water during the rehearsal and performance, as it is a very long day. Write the name of your child on a bottle. (No juice or food is allowed, as kids can make spots on costumes and in that case you will need to cover dry cleaning cost).
Dress Rehearsal prior to the Performance:
It is important for your child to attend the rehearsal before the performance, so your little one will feel more confident to dance on stage.
This year we have invited again a professional photography company, who specializes in Quality Photography of Children, to ensure you can get stunning photos of your child from the show. Professional portraits will be taken in their costume during the dress rehearsal. The photos will be then printed and available for purchasing before the show (Stratford) or online (Kingston, Edmonton & Wood Green). Buying photographs is entirely optional, but If you would like to buy the photographs please remember to bring cash with you.
Please bring your child to the event 30 min before the performance, fully dressed in the clean ballet uniform and with perfect hairstyle!
