I am writing to inform you of the Dance Showcase taking place on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th of November at 7:00pm at Wigston College. There will also be a matinee performance on one of those days.
This event is compulsory for GCSE and A Level dance students and will be an extremely beneficial performance for them in preparation for their practical exams. Your son/daughter has committed to this event and will be expected to attend all rehearsals including the technical and dress rehearsal in the week of the showcase. As well as performances towards their exams, we have other choreographers working with the students and so it is vital that they attend all rehearsals and fully commit to the process.
The technical and dress rehearsals will take place on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th November. I will send out further information nearer the time regarding the exact times of these rehearsals. All students must make sure they attend.
All students involved will be given a costume and/or props list and will be asked to bring full costume and all props to the dress rehearsal. Please can you check with your child(ren) what they will require and contact the dance department if there are any problems.
Tickets will be available to purchase soon from Wigston Academy and Wigston College as well as online. They are priced at £6 for Adults, £4 for concession/senior citizens/students and a family ticket (2x Adults and 2x Concessions) will be available for £16. We hope that you will be able to join us in supporting our dancers.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Dance department should you have a query with regard to the process leading up to the Showcase and please let us know ASAP if any of the above times are going to be a problem.
Thank you for your continued support. It looks to be an excellent evening showcasing the talent of the students.
Miss Jade Askew
