All students will participate in the Concert.
The Concert is a showcase for all the work the students have put into their classes during the year. Hopefully there will be a 'story ballet' this year.
In the past our story ballets have included 'The Snow Maiden', A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘Hansel & Gretel', The Faraway tree’, ‘The Adventures of Madeline’, ‘The Willow Pattern Story’, ‘Pandora’s Box’ and revivals of 'Aladdin' and 'Ocean Dream' to mention just a few. In 2011 our Concert was a special 20th Anniversary celebration. The 2019 Concert story ballet was 'The Diamond Castle' which was a ballet loosely based on the Disney story.
Rosatutu Studios has a magnificent costume wardrobe. Costumes are hired to all students for the Concert. Hire charges are kept to a minimum at $15 - $20 per costume with a reduction in price if students are in 3 or more items. The costumes remain the property of Rosatutu Studios are not to be taken from the Concert venue after the Concert. To see samples of some of our costumes from the costume wardrobe, please see the gallery page. Our Gallery pages are currently being updated!
A DVD is made of the Concert and these are available for purchase along with your Concert tickets.
Just before or just after the Concert we have a Photo afternoon where the children can have their photos taken in their costumes for the Concert. Costs of the photos are kept to a minimum. Photos are generally really for collection at the beginning of the following year after the holidays. Photo Day for 2020 Concert might be organised for early February 2021 after the ballet year has re-commenced.
Also after the Concert we have an afternoon where the students can present their own dances in our Choreographic Festival. This is a valuable experience and conducted in a supportive and encouraging enviroment. The festival is followed by an 'end-of-year' informal bring-a-plate party.
We have Performance Groups for Classical Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz. Membership of the Performance groups is by selection and invitation. There are weekly rehearsal classes and additional rehearsals are scheduled prior to major events. The criteria for membership of Performance Groups can be seen on the document under this link Performance Groups criteria
The Groups perform at several events during the year.
The Groups also participate in local Eisteddfods and some individuals within the groups are also invited to do Solo Eisteddfod work.
As well as Eisteddfods, we give small Concerts for residents at local nursing and retirement homes such as Buckland House and Uniting Care Home. These dance presentations are all regular items in the calendar.
Parents and Grandparents and relatives are invited to watch all classes at the end of Term 2. These days are designed to help children with their performance skills in a supportive atmosphere. It also helps those students preparing for exams to work to an ‘audience’.
