GDANCE will be presenting 2 acts – The first will be Mary Poppins and the second act will be an exciting combination of various genres of dance for your entertainment.

Students need to be available for all rehearsals and all performances. (Sorry, you cant just be in one show).

The duration of the concert is approximately 2 and 1/2 hours including an interval.

Backstage helpers will be allocated to groups and may be required to assist more than one group of students. This is a great way to be more ‘hands-on’ and help the students behind the scenes. Please indicate on the form if you wish to volunteer. You must have a Working With Vulnerable People licence. Volunteer numbers are strictly limited so we apologise if you miss out.

Students can be both dropped off and picked up at the stage door with assistance from the group supervisor and door person. There are no exceptions due to theatre regulations and working with children legislation.
