"Everyone had a fabulous time at the Presentation Day this morning. My daughter Layla loved it." - Nicole

Mummy & Me Classes

Does 'Mum' participate in the Mummy & Me Presentation Day class?

Yes, to keep things the same as your regular class and to assist when needed. Having Mum within arm's length at all times makes this a very safe and secure environment for your child to perform at their best!

What should 'Mum' wear for the Presentation Day class?

Try and wear all black, that way you will not stand out and allow the children to take the limelight!

Can Dad participate in the Mummy & Me Presentation Day performance instead of Mum?

Certainly, and it doesn't have to be the person who normally comes to class to assist. If you are planning for someone else to assist on the day then we strongly encourage them to come along to a few classes to get the hang of it, so you can support your child properly on the day!

Payment

How much does it cost?

The Presentation Day Fee is $45 per child for 'Mummy & Me', 'Tots' and 'Kiddies' classes, $50 for 'Preppies classes (as they hire an extra costume).

How do we pay?

The Presentation Day Fee is charged along with Term 4 fees, so it will be included with your Term 4 invoice.

I'm not sure if my child will participate...

The best thing to do is to pay the Presentation Day Fee along with your Term 4 fees, then see how you go in the lead-up to Presentation Day. You won't have to stress about having already paid the money and worring that you might not end-up doing it because if you let us know at least a week before the scheduled start time of your Presentation Day class we will refund your Presentation Day fee to you - without hassle! Please allow a couple of weeks for the refund as its a really busy time of year. Also note that you must actually contact us, leaving a voice message or sending an email that we cannot find does not count as contacting us, so allow time for us to reply to you confirming that we have received and acted upon your message.

What if we don't want to do Presentation Day?

Its best just to pay the Presentation Day fee with your Term 4 fees and rely on the guarantee above if your change your mind, but if you are adamant that you will not attend Presentation Day they you can just pay for the rest of the term.

Please contact us as soon as possible and we will make a note in your record and have the fee taken off your invoice. Please note that if you later change your mind and decide to go ahead with Presentation Day, there will be a $10 additional fee for these changes to invoicing and having the extra costumes and medals sent out to the teacher. We do not guarantee your place if you do change your mind as we might not have a costume and medal or cannot get it to the teacher in time.

"We've just had the most amazing time at Rose's presentation day - Miss Emily had the girls all well trained and organised and importantly, Rose just loved it! She was so proud to show us what she had been learning this year." - Nicole


Costume

How do you know the costume will fit?

We purchase costumes in 4 different sizes. We select a style (and quality) of costume which achieves a good fit on children of varying sizes and shapes. We ask all teachers to categorize each of their students so we can allocate costumes of different sizes. We supply extra costumes to allow for surprises. We have done this successfully for nearly 13,000 students over past 9 years.

When do we get the costume?

You will be given your costume when you arrive at the venue on Presentation Day - all you need to do is put it on. The teacher will have spares just in case there are any issues with the size.

Can we pick-up the costume the previous week?

Only if you are not doing Presentation Day and have made arrangements as such.

Do we get to keep the costume and medal?

Yes, you sure do!

What if I don't want to keep the costume?

You can never have enough dress-ups! Many students wear their Presentation Day costumes to class throughout the following year. If you really don't want it, you can return it to your teacher or drop it in at our office and we will make sure it is given to someone in need this Christmas.

 

We send the costumes on to the "Connections - Christmas Food and Gift Appeal", which is a part of Uniting care, a very worthy charity who we are proud to be able to support. Please check out their website, maybe you will be also help out some families in need this Christmas: Connections - Christmas Food and Gift Appeal

We won't be able to attend Presentation Day, can we still get a costume and medal?

Yes, you might be able to pick them up from the teacher the week before, pick them up from our office or we can post them out (please allow $7.95 for postage and handling).

Can I purchase an extra costume and medal?

Most likely, it will depend on what we have left after all of the Presentation Day performances are finished. Please contact our office or visit our Online Store.

We did Presentation Day last year, can we just wear the same costume this year?

No, the costumes are different for each group, each year, so your child would be the only one in a different costume.

"Wow! We just loved presentation day! Miss Kat, the costume and the medal. Dolly had all of her aunties and proud Grandparents attend..." -


Audience

How many people can we bring?

We allow for 4 audience members per student.

Does that include 'Mum' for Mummy & Me classes?

'Mum' in the 'Mummy & Me' class performances is considered a 'performer' so she would not count as an audience member.

What if I bring my baby along, does that count?

Very young children don't count in the total if they will not take up a seat.

Why are only 4 people allowed?

We want to keep the audience small so as not to overwhelm our very young performers. We also want to keep the performance in our regular venue where possible for familiarity.

What if we need to bring more people?

Most likely you will be able to, please discuss it with the teacher. It will depend on the size of the class, size of the venue (some venues do have maximums which cannot be exceeded for health and safty reasons), and whether other people from the same class have also requested to bring along extra people. Also remember that we don't want a huge audience - the larger the audience the more overwhelming it will be for the little ones.

What if we don't have four people to attend - can we get a partial refund?

No.

Do we need tickets to attend Presentation Day?

No one requires tickets to attend our Presentation Day classes.

What if we have more than one child in the class, can we bring more people along?

We allow for 4 audience members per student, so if you have 2 children participating in the performance then you can bring 8 people.

Photos/Video

Can I take photos and/or video during the performance?

You are welcome to take whatever photos and video you like as long as it is used for non-commercial purposes only.

What if I don't want people taking photos and/or video of my child?

In this case it would be best not to participate in Presentation Day.

What is the Presentation Day Photo Competition?

It's a competition we run each year, prizes are awarded to the best photos we receive from Presentation Day. The wonderful images you see on this page were all taken by parents and submitted to the photo comp. What you see are images of very happy children who have had a wonderful time at their Presentation Days! Find out more...

"Thank you for a great day, Maisy absolutely loved it, and really came out of her shell to show her family what she has been learning. She loves Miss Natalie, who is lovely with the children and somehow manages to keep them all focussed and having a ball! The little girls looked beautiful in their tutus, and I really appreciate that your school is relaxed and fun, and doesn’t make the children wear make up or have to spend hours waiting for their turn on performance day. I recommend Kinder Ballet to my friends, and Maisy will continue to come along next year to Miss Natalie’s class." - Tracy


Preparation

What should my child wear to come to class on Presentation Day?

Children can arrive in their regular clothes.

What do we need to bring?

Ballet shoes, tights (or socks), camera (or iPads and phones). A new/clean pair of tights will look nice during the performance and in photos. You can purchase from our Online Store

Do we have to have hair in a ballet bun?

Only if you (and your child) want to, we don't require all the children to have their hair the same.

Do we need to get new ballet shoes and tights?

Only if their current shoes and tights are a bit messy looking - its totally up to you.

"We LOVED the end of year Christmas concert!! A big thank you to Miss Chelsea who has been wonderful all term and made ballet class so much fun for Ellie (and mummy). Ellie has learnt about dance and co-ordination and self confidence. She has learnt to listen to the teacher and to have lots of fun. She always loves going to class and we often play ballet at home for fun. My parents and husband loved watching Ellie at the end of year concert. Thanks to kinder ballet for the costume and medal!! What a great year we have had. Thanks Kinderballet and Miss Chelsea." - Veronica
