DROP OFF AND SUPERVISION PROCEDURE FOR WEDNESDAY 12th DECEMBER & ALL PERFORMANCES
Once again this year we are very pleased to announce that we have enlisted previous students from our dance schools to help with supervision and looking after all students during the rehearsal and performances at Shore School. This will allow all parents and caregivers the freedom to watch the whole of the concert guilt free!
There will be a strictly NO PARENTS backstage and in the dressing room area. Please don’t be offended if you are asked to leave the area.
Drop off for all students for the rehearsal and performances will be near the foyer. There will be no access to the dressing rooms via any other door. Enter via the large green gates on William St at the top of Blue St. Signs will lead you to the stage door. From here your child will be taken to their dressing room and their teacher. Please make sure your child is ready dressed in costume with hair and make up done.
