Is my child the right age to attend?

The workshops have been designed for dedicated dance students from 8 years upwards. Classes will be based on age groups (junior, intermediate and senior).

What level of experience is required?

To gain the most from the summer school classes, students should be currently enrolled at a dance studio where they take weekly dance classes.

What if a dancer doesn't tap?

Given the very specific technical skills required to participate in a tap workshop of this level, only students who currently learn tap at a dance studio are able to participate in the tap classes. Students who do not study tap will be offered an alternative class in lieu. Students are able to participate in all other classes regardless of prior experience with that particular genre.

Where is the event being held?

The summer school is being held at The Rockhampton Grammar School's professional dance studios. The fully air-conditioned studios have sprung dance floors, full length mirrors, barres and professional sound systems and are all located in one modern building within the main campus of The Rockhampton Grammar School.

What are the start and finish times?

Classes commences at 9:30am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 8:45am on Friday. Students are asked to arrive at 8.30am each day to engage in activities such as registration, information sessions, photo sessions and warm-up. Classes will conclude each day at 4.30pm Monday through to Thursday. On Friday the program will conclude at 4:00pm, after the Showcase. A detailed schedule of classes, including break times will be emailed to participants in the lead up to the summer school.

What are the supervision arrangements ?

Your child will be fully supervised during classes by the dance tutors and during breaks by staff of The Rockhampton Grammar School. Dancers are required to stay on campus at The Rockhampton Grammar School for the duration of the summer school day.

What are the food/drink arrangements?

Dancers must bring adequate food each day (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea). Dancers must bring their own named water bottle each day which can be refilled as needed on site.

Will I be able to see what the students have worked on during the summer school?

Yes, students will present a Showcase on the final day in The Rockhampton Grammar School Theatre.

What attire is acceptable?

Appropriate dance shoes must be worn for each genre. Sneakers are not appropriate for use on the professional sprung floors. Tap shoes are essential if participating in tap classes.

Students are required to wear suitable dance and active wear. Crop tops should be covered with singlets or over-shirts. Hair should be off the face.

When should I get my ticket?

You should get your tickets ASAP! There are only a limited number of tickets available and with such an impressive line-up of tutors, the event is likely to sell out quickly. Don't miss out on the amazing Early Bird Price of $410. Book your tickets by 15 October 2018 to save money!

What payment methods are available?

Credit/debit card is the only payment method available. Our booking system is all online and very easy to navigate. Using this payment method will allow you to finalise your booking and payment efficiently. This payment method has been selected as it ensures the security of all transactions and protects your privacy.
