Additional Costs…

Costumes – We source all the main items for each student, though we may ask you to provide certain smaller items such as tights. All items may be taken home by dancers after the final performance. Please keep them neat, as from next year we will be embarking on a ‘sell on’ scheme.

Stage tights – No more than £10.00: Most groups will require a pair of stage tights – we will confirm this nearer the time.

Footwear (e.g. ballet shoes, tap shoes, jazz shoes) – This is dependent on which style of dance students are having – this will be confirmed in line with costumes.

Make Up – This is the same as our last show, specific details will be on our next letter. Most students will have their hair in a bun for the show, so hair gel, a bun net, grips etc. will also be required.

Rehearsals – There is a fee for all rehearsals that take place in addition to regular lessons.

Attendance & commitment…

Students must uphold a high level of attendance throughout the show work period; this applies to everyone. Every single Fiery Feeter counts in making our show as fabulous as possible, so being in lessons each week is very important.

Building that all-important team atmosphere can be hard if students are missing, and likewise with so much to cover each week catching up can be difficult.

Licensed Children…

Children who perform with multiple theatre groups/professional productions within the same 6 months of the Fiery Feet show may require a license, and a licensed chaperone to supervise them backstage. This does not include school or WAGS productions, but may include anything like panto (performances to the paying public at professional theatres etc.) Please let us know if this might apply to your child as soon as possible. Should your child require a license, you as their parent will be required to obtain a chaperone’s license and supervise them backstage.

Show makers…

It takes a whole team volunteers to run the show – dressers, chaperones, runners and security – there’s a role for everyone!

We are so grateful to those of you who volunteer year on year, but if you’re new to the Fiery Feet Family please step up and offer to help. There are 70 slots to fill, split across the dress rehearsal and performances if you can do just one it is a huge help.

We are an all female cast this year, therefore we are only looking for female help back stage, but we welcome male volunteers to the security team.

Please email: if you are able to help, the more people the merrier!

Costume & Rehearsal Payments
