2019 CONCERT DATES

Wednesday 4th December Dress Rehearsal at Shore Theatre

Saturday 14th & 15th December Four Shows at Shore Theatre

Tap & Acrobatics Classes Term 4

As most of you may remember from last year, at LCDA we split our school into two show groups, RED & WHITE.

The Red Show Group, consisting of Kindergarten, Year 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10+ (school years) students, perform in two shows on Saturday 14th December, 11am & 4pm.

The White Show Group, consisting of Year 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 10+ (school years) students, perform in two shows on Sunday 15th December, 11am & 4pm.

As our Tap & Acrobatics classes are made up of a mixture of students from different years, in Term 4 we would like them to work together in their show groups. The following timetable will start from the beginning of Term 4:

Friday 18th October; 4:00-5:30pm Acrobatics Red Group (school years 2, 4, 6, 8, 10+)

4:30-5:30pm Tap White Group (school years 3, 5, 7, 9, 10+)

5:30-6:30pm Tap Red Group (school years 2, 4, 6, 8, 10+) 5:30-7:00pm

Acrobatics White Group (school years 3, 5, 7, 9, 10+)

 

This timetable is also for our Saturday Acrobatics class to join. There will be no Saturday Acrobatics in Term 4. There will be no extra charge for the extra 30mins of Acrobatics lesson time.
If you have any questions please dont hesitate to contact us.

Concert Opt Out

The Academy has an OPT OUT policy regarding participation in the end of year performance. This means we assume all students will participate in ALL performances for the academy they are enrolled in and a costume deposit of $40 has been applied to each of the classes your child is enrolled for Term 2. The balance for your costume/s will be added to your Term 4 invoice.

If your children are NOT available on concert dates or you DO NOT WISH them to participate, the onus is on you to tell us. PLEASE advise by email (lcda@lcda.com.au) before 1st June 2019 if your child will not be involved in the end of year concert. The Costume Deposit charged will be adjusted on your invoice on receipt of the email notice. Payment of the costume deposit secures your place in the concert.

 

What happens if you do not advise us that your child will not be in the concert before 1st June 2019?

Costumes require a considerable lead time to ensure they arrive before the concert dates. Most costumes are custom made overseas and unless ordered early, cannot be re-ordered with sufficient time to arrive before the performance dates. If you do not advise the Academy by 1st June 2019, the Academy assumes you will be in the concert and a costume will be ordered. Once ordered, the full cost of the costume will be payable by you.
