WHAT TO WEAR:
We always suggest that students purchase a classical leotard that will stand out amongst the crowd. No white or pale blue leotards to be used please as they fade into the crowd and don’t stand out. Below is some pictures of suggestions from the Energetiks and Bloch websites at www.energetiks.com.au and Bloch.com.au. Best to match the leotard to bring out the child’s natural colouring.
Registration on the Day
Students are to register at the registration desk in the entrance foyer. Each class will have an allocated registration time. We ask that students arrive at their designated registration time and not before. If you attempt to register before your designated arrival time, you will be asked to return at your specified time. We ask that parents and teachers do not enter the warm up rooms to avoid congestion, with the exception of Section AA and A who may have one parent per student accompany them in the warm up room. We ask that if you are not staying to watch, you please drop and go to avoid unnecessary large crowds.
Finalists and Semi Finalists are selected at the discretion of the adjudicators. No discussion will be entered into with parents or teachers.
Parents and friends are welcome to view the auditions this year. Tickets per class are $10 adults and $5 students, children or concession (pensioners etc.) and can be purchased from the ticket sales desk at reception. As with last year, the Sections held at Australian Academy of Dance will have card payments available, though we will also be accepting cash payments. All payments at Glen Iris School of Dance will be cash only.
Students participating in a section are not allowed to view an audition class in their section unless they have already completed their audition.
Registered teachers receive one complimentary ticket (valid for one class only). You can collect this from the ticket sales desk at reception. You can purchase tickets for $5 per class thereafter.
No skirts or warm up clothes are to be worn in class. Appropriate ballet attire is to be worn by all participants. Please ensure hair is neat and secured out of students' faces. There is no pointe work for any audition classes. Please arrive ready to participate. We ask that students only bring items needed to participate into the venue (shoes, water bottle, warm clothes for travelling to and from the venue). If a student would like to wear a mask while dancing, this is allowed and will not influence adjudication.
A first aid box will be available at the registration desk. Students with existing medical conditions or injuries participate at their own risk and must have a parent or guardian present at all times. Please inform our volunteers at check in if this applies to you or get in touch prior to the event if you have any concerns.
No photographs or videos may be taken during the audition classes. If you are caught taking photographs or video, you will be asked to leave immediately.
BTW t-shirts ($25) will be available to purchase on the day.
Covid-19 and other illness
As is common practice now, if you are unwell or exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19, please stay home. While we are thrilled to be back to in person events we still place the health and safety of all participants at the forefront of our minds and ask that you all consider others when deciding on whether or not to attend if exhibiting symptoms of any kind.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to seeing you and your students at the end of month!
