CHANGE SPACE
We have several areas of change space for this event and it will change day to day, please see staff for help.

FOYER AREA – SHOES ON!
There is a bar area close to the front foyer – which means SHOES ON for all dancers in this area – this is basic safety and health as Bars contain glass and glass can break causing kids to step on it and then off to hospital you go! – just pack slippers or those boot thingys to slip over feet when in this area!

VIEWING
Dancers with rego passes can view any action on the stages (except Gala night and when we are full – the main theatre holds 900+ people, if that fills we may ask dancers to leave to accommodate for paying parents). All viewing tickets can be purchased at the box office.

RED CARPET BALL
This event is for Champion of Champion dancers and their families. The Champs kids will all gather in the hallway while the parents and supporters go into the showroom seating area, the room will accommodate around 200 seats, any extras will need to stand to watch. The champs kids then all walk the red carpet down the stage to their area, and after that we will call some judges on stage to chat to and finally groups of champs kids to draw their running order for Champs day. Filming/Photography is welcomed at this event.

DREAM DANCE CO
