The Dance Sensations End Of Year Concert is one of the studio’s most exciting events of the year! Every class gets a chance to showcase their new routines and show off all of the new skills that they have been developing throughout terms 3 and 4. It can be a very busy time of year, so to take one thing off of your to-do list here is a guide on what to pack for concert and rehearsal day!
Stockings are sold at Shellharbour studio for $15 each!
Ballet and RAD – Pink ballet stockings
Cheer – No stockings
Contemporary – Convertable tan stockings
All other styles – Tan jazz stockings
DS Minis – All minis will wear tan jazz stockings regardless of class style to make costume changes easier!
Cheer – Plain white joggers
Hip Hop – Any coloured joggers
Jazz – Tan jazz shoes
Musical Theatre – Tan jazz shoes
Ballet – Pink ballet shoes
Contemporary – Bare feet
Acro- Bare feet
Tap – Black lace up tap shoes (currently transitioning from tan ones so tan are still okay too!)
Troupe – Same shoes as they compete in!
It is important to stay hydrated as students will have a very busy and tiring day! At Dance Sensations, we recommend bringing water as your only drink. Other drinks like juice can be messy (especially if they get spilled on costumes) and won’t keep you properly hydrated. Bring 1 big bottle of water or even two bottles of water if you are going to be performing multiple shows.
You will most likely be backstage for some time waiting to dance during the concert, and it is important to keep your body fueled so you can dance with lots of energy on stage! It’s a good idea to bring some small snacks to munch on in your break time. We recommend things like crackers, bananas, apples, muesli bars etc. as they’re both healthy and unlikely to make a mess!
Some items that will come in handy include bobby pins, a hair brush and hairspray (non-aerosol preferred due to asthma) to neaten up hair for children in multiple dances/shows. Makeup-wise students are welcome to bring lipstick and any other makeup items to touch up but this is not compulsory!
Minis – Concert shirts are ready to pick up at the studio from today! You will need to bring your shirt on concert day to wear during the finale with any bright coloured bottoms.
All other age groups – You will receive a T-shirt at the rehearsal that you will need to bring on concert day to wear during the finale. This shirt is yours to keep and you will need to bring your own choice of bottoms to wear with it!
