Parents please read…

Keep your dancers costumes clean and tidy. We recommend that if your dancer is in multiple dances with multiple costumes, that you clearly label them with your child’s name. Also, just like a school day please can you pack a ‘non messy lunch’ for example sandwiches, snack bars, fruit, raisons etc. Please AVOID NUTS, avoid yogurts and wet or crumbly food. There won’t be an opportunity to warm any dinners or use a kettle for your child’s lunch.

Time is of the essence so please drop your child off on time at the Theatre. You will receive an email with more details of this nearer the time.
