November 2018

OH….EM….GEE! November is here and the Main St Funk concert is knocking on our door. We would like to thank you all for an amazing year of hard work, dedication and fun.  Please see below a few friendly reminders in relation to the end of year events!

DVD

We are excited to welcome professional videographer Nick from MODE Video Productions to film our Matinee show. MODE are an experienced and reputable company who film many dance concerts and other events each year. Nick’s philosophy is to ensure all children on stage can be seen on the screen (he doesn’t like to crop kids out) and he ensures a high quality product with a fast turn around! Woohoo! DVD’s are $36 each and can be ordered and paid for online. Please do so before concert day. They make beautiful keepsakes and great Christmas presents for relatives.

Thank you once again for your efforts on photo day. Bianca from Zelie Imaging is busy editing your prints. These will be available to purchase in the weeks leading up to concert as well as at rehearsal and concert day. Photos are $12 each or 6 for $60 and digital copies of your purchases are available for $25. Each year your photos are just stunning and this year is no different. You are going to LOVE your 2018 photos.

There are still great seats available for our two concerts – it’s not too late for your friends and family to come along. Online ticket sales will close on November 30.

COMPULSORY THEATRE REHEARSAL

Don’t forget about our rehearsal at the theatre on Wednesday the 5th of December starting at 4pm sharp. This is our one and only compulsory event for the year and attendance is mandatory for all students who are participating in the concert/s. No parents will be required but all students under the age of 16 will need to be signed in by their parents on arrival and signed out once dismissed.

CONCERT DAY

Please ensure you are punctual and organised on concert day. Any lost or damaged costume items will need to be replaced by you prior to the performance. Students are to arrive with their hair and makeup done, in loose comfortable clothing with all costume items packed. We recommend separate snaplock bags for each costume and a tub/bucket instead of a bag for all costumes. This means costumes can be piled in neatly and will be easy to locate.

BACKSTAGE BUDDY SYSTEM

All mini and tiny students will be buddied up with an older student who will care for them backstage and help them get ready for each dance. Junior students will be buddied up with a classmate to help each other get ready. All students will be well cared for and supervised throughout both shows and the rehearsal. Parents are not permitted backstage or in the dressing room at any time throughout the concert or rehearsal including during interval and between the Matinee and Evening Show. Please ensure your child packs something to eat (nothing too messy), lots of water, make up and hairspray for touch ups and for those who are only in a few dances, a colouring book (no textas) or book to read would be handy to have as well. If your child requires medication please place in a snaplock bag clearly labelled with the child’s name and dosage and place somewhere where it will be easy to find OR hand it in to an MSF team member. In the event that your child does need you, we can always give you a call but we have never had to do that in 12 years of concerts! So sit back, relax, enjoy the show and know that your kids are in good hands.

ORIENTATION WEEK

Don’t disappear after the concert! Main St Funk invites you to a fun and FREE week of dance at our very first Orientation Week!
