The Fairy Feet Dance Club End of Year Concert is an opportunity for my little Fairy Dancers to dress up in a special costume and perform a dance routine for their family and friends – without some of the normal hype or type of demands that you may expect from a dance concert (like over-the-top hair and make up requirements or evening performances!).
Performing on stage is a wonderful way to build self confidence in children – but I understand that not every child is the same and that some may be intimidated by the thought – and participation is by no means compulsory.
All concert performers will receive a special award on stage to congratulate them on their achievement. My aim is for this to be a fun, memorable and enjoyable experience for both you and your child!

What do students wear? Will I have to sew or purchase a costume?
No sewing or costume purchasing is required!

This fee covers hire AND laundering. Costume Hire is automatically included on your invoice for Term 4 fees. Costumes remain the property of Fairy Feet Dance Club and under no circumstances can they be taken home.
Will my child have to wear makeup?
No!…I believe that all of our little dancers are beautiful just the way and I have no desire to make them look older than their age.
How do the wear their hair? No fancy hair requirements – hair just needs to pulled back off their face so we can see their beautiful smiling faces up on stage.

Does my child sit with me during the Concert?
All students are required to stay in their class groups and are unable to sit in the audience area during the concert. Each group has a dedicated Fairy Feet Concert Helper to look after them – and they must remain with their group and Concert Helper at all times. Once performers have changed into costume they will remain backstage with their group until the start of the concert. During the concert they will be seated in the hall with their groups and then return to the stage for our finale number at the conclusion of the Concert.
