In week 8 of Term 2 (20 June), students will present an Open Class for parents, family and friends at the CQCM Theatre. Students are expected to wear their Con Academy uniform and class times are as per normal. Concert & costume information will be distributed at this class.
Week 9 of Term 3 (12 & 13 September), the students will present an end of term concert for the Conservatorium Academy. Dress rehearsal for all students will be on Saturday 12 September from 9:00am to 3:00pm in the CQCM Theatre. There will be two public performances on Sunday 13 September in the CQCM Theatre at 1pm and 4pm. Costs and booking information will be provided at the beginning of Semester 2. All further concert information will be conveyed at the Open Class in Term 2.
All students will be required to wear the Conservatorium Academy uniform. This consists of:
Conservatorium Academy Polo Shirt
Girls: Black jazz pants, leggings or shorts (available at any dance wear shop)
Boys: Black shorts or comfortable long pants
Girls & boys: Black Elasta Booties
Shoes are available at any dance wear shop
Parents are required to purchase stage make-up for their child. This is usually a one-off purchase and can be used for several years. If your child already owns make-up for drama or dance, then this will be suitable for Conservatorium Academy performances. Most students will be able to wear heavy day make-up. Students in Senior Theatre may need to wear false eyelashes. False eyelashes are not required for students of Junior or Intermediate Theatre.
Parents are responsible for the cost of their child's costume. While every effort is made to source costumes at an affordable rate, it is expected that this will not exceed $100. Some costumes may be sourced much more cheaply then this, or there may be a hire fee.
Students will mostly wear their usual class shoes for performances. Parents will be required to provide appropriate socks or tights for class and performance.
The end of year concert will require a small amount of stage and personal props. Parents are asked to help source these props and students will need to use these during the year as required.
During class, please ensure your child's hair is tied back off the face.
