Empire Dance Company offer an Opportunity for every Student to Perform at the end of the year Recital. This year our Recital is on Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday the 8th of December held at the Nelson Theatre Royal. 


This is a huge event each year, students will have the excitement of performing inside the beautiful Theatre Royal, but will also learn about how productions and shows run inside a Theatre.  We would like all student to take part in this amazing experience. Below is some information about our how that will help you prepare for the show. 


Is my child in the Show?

Every Child has the opportunity to perform in the show, every Dance Genre Class will perform a routine in the show with the exclusion of Stretch and Conditioning. Each student also has the opportunity to be in the Opening and Closing number of the show as well. 


My Child only does Stretch and Conditioning?

Although this class don't have their own routine we offer for these students to be apart of the Opening Number and Closing number in the show. This is still a great experience to be apart of a show like this.


My Child is in Pre School and Mini Classes will the be in the show?

We want all students no matter how small feel like they get an opportunity to be apart of the show. Pre School Students will be in the 1st Half of the Show only and Minis will be spread between the both and can have the Option to Opt-in for the Opening and Closing Numbers.


Do I need to stay with my Mini and Preschool Children during the show and Practice?

We have fun friendly dressers and childminders to look after our Mini and Pre School students. If you would like to be with your children during rehearsals and the show please offer to be a dresser or childminder. As you can understand we will not be able to have everyone out the back due to a limit on space.


What does my child need?

Attached is an Essential list which will list all that is required for your child, if you need help with these please head to our website or Contact Okiwi Via Email. 


What is an Opening Number Top?

Each year Empire Dance Company has a new top for students to wear. The students wear these for the Opening and Closing Numbers of the show. If your student would like to be apart of the Opening and Closing Number of the show one of these Tops will need to be purchased. 


Does my child need to tan/make up?

All Junior, Intermediate and Senior Students need to apply Fake Tan for the Show and Photo Call. We have teamed up with Queen st Pharmacy to help make all you tan and Makeup needs easier to acquire. Please see Okiwi for an Empire Student card to use at  Queen St Pharmacy. Attached is the Empire Dance Company Makeup list 


What extra commitments are required to be apart of the show?

Attached is a rehearsal schedule for some weekend rehearsals as well as the Tech and Show Day rehearsals. These rehearsals are very important and we urge parents to make these a priority as there is a lot of time in the studio needed to make sure that everyone is feeling confident and ready to Perform for his or her friends and Families


Are there any other Costs?

We try to keep cost's down for you guys, The Empire Opening Number Top and essentials are all that you need to outlay. There will be no charge for costumes used in the show
