Well seeing as the shops have started its only fair that we do….IT’S NEARLY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!(kind of!)
Below you will find all the info you need to know for our Christmas show on 21st December and other dance school updates.
This is the first time we have ever put on a show at this time of year and want it to be as relaxed and fun as possible with a really nice family concert feel. The theatre is small and can only hold 100 in the audience so if you want tickets its best to order sooner rather than later at class to avoid disappointment. The show is a great way for pupils to show off what they have learnt this term and gives them something to work on over the next couple of months so we would love as many pupils as possible to get involved. Please tell us if you will NOT be participating in this event so we can ensure classes and routines are planned accordingly.
Rhythm Junkiez Dance Company
A Very Hip Hop Christmas…
When: Saturday 21st December
Where: The Custard Factory Theatre, Gibb Street, Digbeth, B9 4AA
Times: 2pm show & 4pm show (performers will be needed from 9am)
Duration: Aprox 60minutes
Tickets: £6 adults £4 under 12’s. Available in class or online from 21st November.
Costumes will be simply Rhythm Junkiez uniform so please make sure if you haven’t already got a new design RJ’s Tshirt you order one with thesecretary. They are £15 and needed for class, other performances and exams so will definitely be used! All outstanding uniform orders will be ready by the end of this week and the new order will be placed 14th November.
Extra rehearsals: Sat 14th December – 10am-3pm, Friday 20th December 5-7pm (time slots will be given to each group)
We aim for each student to be in a couple of routines but this is not guaranteed, we don’t want this show to be a stressful experience for performers involved.
Plans on the day:
All Junior and Senior students need to arrive at 9am prompt to the Custard Factory Theatre in RJ’s uniform (T-shirt and black joggers or leggings with clean black shoes, girls are to wear their hair in any style as long as it is off their face with stage make up applied)
3-7yrs classes need to arrive at 12pm prompt in the same attire with lunch or snacks if already eaten and plenty of water – NO FIZZY DRINKS!
You are welcome to pack games to keep students occupied when not dancing but try to refrain from packing any expensive gadgets etc. as we will not be able to accept liability if anything gets lost.
Due to space parents/guardians will not be able to stay during dress rehearsal. For any adults staying in the area the theatre is a 5minute walk to the Bullring and there are Cafe’s in the Custard Factory area also.
We are trying to see if we can find anywhere to hold an after party so everyone can have a boogie but this is still tbc!
OTHER UPDATES – Payment
Our classes are now all pay monthly. This can either be done via the website www.rhythmjunkiez.co.uk/payment or at THE START of each month with the secretary at class. We are getting fed up of having to remind pupils to pay for their classes. We have issued invoices for outstanding payments and anybody who continues to refrain from paying will be denied entry to classes unless they have made arrangements with us.
– Junior & Senior team
– Your monthly fee is now £38 per month for Monday class and Tuesday/Thursday team sessions. This has been discounted from pay weekly fees.
NO CASH PAYMENTS OTHER THAN MONTHLY FEES WILL BE TAKEN AT TEAM AS OF 1ST NOVEMBER.
– Private lessons
Cash for private lessons is still accepted however if you cancel a session with less than 24hrs warning you will be charged for half of the session to cover hall costs (we still have to pay this as the slot has been booked for you)
-We will be holding our exams on Saturday 8th February; these are open to all students.
-The show will be around the same time, we are hoping for Sat 12th July but this will be confirmed ASAP!
– Teams should know bookings and comps for the 2013/14 season, please get in touch if you need this in written or email format.
