Costumes will NOT be required for the show rehearsal

Parents can leave the theatre after children have been dropped off. All students (excluding baby classes) will be required to stay for the duration of the rehearsal for a full run through of the show.

Yes, parents are welcome to stay but will only be permitted in the foyer area. The show is our secret!

Only Simply Dance staff are authorised backstage. Every member of staff is DBS checked for safeguarding.

Please bring drinks and sufficient snacks for them to have whilst watching the show run.

IMPORTANT : Strictly no nuts, chocolate or fizzy drinks please. This is for the safety of all our students with nut allergies and clothing protection.

This information is required on the Show Registration and Health & Safety Form. All information provided will be readily available and staff will be made aware of any medical issues with the children.

IMPORTANT: If your child has an EpiPen, Inhaler or any other medication, please ensure that this is marked clearly with their full name and is secure.

Please ensure that every item of clothing, water bottles, packed lunch boxes, toys, electronics etc are clearly marked on the front with your child’s name. This will also help things be located quickly.

Simply Dance cannot accept any responsibility for items lost or stolen. If anything is of value, we would recommend it is left at home where possible.

Signing out for the rehearsal and shows will require your safe password. You will be required to provide this on the Registration/Health & Safety Form which will be sent to you once registration is open.

The rehearsal will give all students the opportunity to watch the full show and do a practice run of the bows, curtseys and finale. It’s a very exciting day for everyone!

REMEMBER: Children cannot perform WITHOUT completing the Show Registration & Health & Safety Form. One form is required for each child. This is generally sent out 3 to 5 months prior to the event. Here you will find the link for the 2024 Registration Form.
