COSTUMES

All troupe members need a costume for each troupe they perform in. Costumes vary and cost is between $50 to $100 per costume. This includes dressmaking, material, haberdashery. This fee may  include some beading, trim & sequins. Tutus are an external order and will cost more.

Students will receive an invoice for costumes required throughout the year. Payment is required by the set invoice date. All students requiring costumes must have paid invoice in full by required date to ensure your material is brought and costumes are made in time for performances. Please note that Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Vocal Group & Vocal soloists may only be required to wear their own clothing i.e, Jeans, Tshirt, Dresses

Attitudes staff design all costumes. Dressmaking is available for troupes & solos. However if you wish to sew your own costumes you will need to notify the office when you recieve your invoice. Please note that there is a small charge if you require a pattern. Material will be purchased and distributed to you less dressmaking & haberdashery charge.

All troupe costumes are made for you to purchase, saving you time and money, however any beading and sequence are the purchaser's responsibility.

R.A.D EXAMINATIONS & PERFORMANCES

We offer Classical Ballet exams in the Royal Academy Of Dance R.A.D Syllabus. Students are encouraged to participate in completing these examinations from Pre Primary through to grade 8 and vocational examinations of Intermediate to Advanced 2.

All students are required to attend at least one Ballet class a week if wishing to perform in competition work. Students will be assessed and placed into appropriate classes.

Students wishing to aim for an exam are required to do a minimum of 2 classes per week. However only selected students who we feel are ready will be able to enter exam. The R.A.D sets a very high standard withing which we pride our students for doing well and achieving the highest marks.

Selected students will also be asked to participate in various work shops through out Victoria, such as the VCA winter workshops, Tania Peason workshops, Guest workshops and the Attitudes pre-exam workshops.

R.A.D classes are compulsory for all students wishing to compete, as this is the backbone to all forms of dance. 

Students who do not want to enter exams or compete have the option of participating in RAD classes for technique only.

Note:

 Uniforms and headpieces for exams are to be hired from the studio when students are selected to enter exams. Cost is $40 in which $15 is refunded upon  uniform return.

 

COMPETITIONS

Students in competition classes will be entered twice a year. Performances run on Sundays of 1st term & the end of term  3 in the first week of school holidays.

Students must notify us immediately if they cannot commit to these dates, at least 2 months notice must be given prior to competition.  

Students will be charged $4 per troupe entry at any competition they are entered in. This covers the cost of student entry, student passes, student solo CD's, troupe lighting, smoke machine, cloth back drop, prop transportation and extra troupe rehearsals during comp time. This fee is spread evenly between comp costs.

 Students are required to attend all stage rehearsals  for competition work. This is for safety purposes as well as stage craft, awareness and technique. These are compulsory rehearsals and cannot be missed. Commitment is the key!!

Cost of stage rehearsal varies from venues, as venue hire also varies. Family discounts will be given.
