June 2019 – MID-YEAR CONCERT FAQ

Time flies when you’re having fun, we have hit the halfway point already! We have lots of exciting things happening both in and out of the studio in the coming months. Coming up fast is our Mid-Year Concert “In the Making”. We have been so impressed by the work ethic and teamwork we have seen from all ages, as they push to help us create an amazing show. Keep it up, kids! At concert time we get lots of questions, which we welcome! We have put together a list of FAQ to help make the day a little easier for you.

CAN I STILL GET TICKETS?:
There are still plenty of seats available. If using your phone to purchase, make sure you zoom out and swipe to see all of the available seats. After ordering your tickets, they will be available to collect at the studio. You can order tickets here: https://www.trybooking.com/BCGYA

WHAT DO STUDENTS WEAR TO THE MID-YEAR CONCERT?
Full uniform, including hair and shoes, are required from all students. If your child performs in multiple dances, we recommend layering, to make outfit changes easier for them. For example, if your child does hip hop and ballet and their hip hop dance is first, please put on ballet stockings and leotard and then your hip hop uniform (leggings and MSF tee) over the top. The concert order has been posted up on the studio walls where you can check what dance you/your child has first. Students who do ballet, as well as other classes, will keep their hair in a ballet bun for the entire show. A full outline of uniform, hair and shoe requirements can be found here: https://mainstfunk.com/uniform-shoe-hair-requirements/

DO THE STUDENTS NEED TO WEAR MAKEUP?
No, makeup is not required for the mid-year concert. If you do choose to wear makeup (or put makeup on your child) for the mid-year concert, we recommend a light, natural look, using neutral tones to highlight the natural features. Use as little or as much makeup as you like but be mindful, as there are no stage lights, a full face of stage makeup can be very confronting, especially on little people.

CAN WE RECORD AND TAKE PHOTOS DURING THE CONCERT?
NO.
Main St Funk has a strict “no photos and no videos during classes and concerts” policy. This is in line with national child safety laws and copyright laws and is a policy that all families agreed to upon enrollment. Rules aside, it is also very distracting to our young performers, many of whom are performing for the first time ever, to look out to a sea of phones and flashes. We understand the importance of capturing this special day so we encourage you to take photos of your child before and after the show and we will be providing all families with digital footage of the concert, at no charge to you! So switch your devices off, sit back, relax, be in the moment and enjoy the show! Your little one will be so excited to look out into the audience and see your smiling face!

IS THERE CLASS THE WEEK AFTER THE CONCERT?
Yes, there is one more week of term left, after the concert and classes will run as normal from Monday, June 24th – Saturday, June 29th. This is PJ Week AND Bring a Friend Week! Dress up in your comfiest and cutest PJs and bring along a buddy to dance in your class for free. This week is also open to the public as a free trial week. If you’ve got a friend who wouldn’t be suitable to your age group, but they would like to try a class, get them to get in touch so we can find the right class time for them.

HAVE YOU GOT A QUESTION THAT ISN’T LISTED ABOVE?
There’s no such thing as a silly question, please get in touch with The MSF Team, so we can help you out.
