COVID-19 – Studio Safety Protocols
We highly encourage our dancers to participate at photo shoots during the 2021/22 year. These pictures are optional to purchase.
Students will have a costume for all performance classes. Parents are responsible for the full cost of dance costumes – regardless of whether or not the class is able to perform – and will only be received once they have been paid in full. Costume deposits are due in October 2021 for ITP classes performing in competitions and January 2022 for General and ITP classes performing in our year end show. The balance is due in the new year once invoiced to your accounts.
HAIR & MAKE-UP
Hair & Make-up is the final touch to complete a costume and is a mandatory application for all dancers participating in a stage performance. Students will receive an outline of required hair & make-up with their costumes.
STAGE ORIENTATION & DRESS REHEARSALS
It is mandatory for all students to attend stage rehearsals at the Sid William Theatre prior to Festival and the year-end show. This gives the performer an opportunity to get a feel for the stage, dancing with stage lighting and space their dance(s) prior to performing.
· Our Year End Recital is scheduled for May 25th to 29th, 2022 at the Sid Williams Theatre.
· We eagerly accept the help of parent volunteers for costume and backstage help. A sign-up sheet will be posted in the lobby closer to the show – Pleases feel free to volunteer.
- Examinations in RAD Ballet generally take place in the fall and/or spring.
- AIDT Tap exams take place in June.
- Teachers will use their discretion as to whether or not a student or group is ready for an exam. A second year in one level may be required in order for students to properly master the work and achieve strong results
