All the bits and bobs our dancers need to know for their end of year show...

The 2019 Pump Dance production is ‘Around the World in 80 Days’, which will be held on Saturday 26th October at the Wellington Opera House. There is a Matinee Show at 3pm and an Evening Show at 7pm. The show is 2.5 hours long (plus a 15 minute interval). Tickets are currently on sale through Ticketmaster!

We are super excited to work on such an epic show with our students and we just know it’s going to be an experience they will never forget!

All students enrolled with Pump Dance by the beginning of term three are invited to perform in the show. Students need to commit to certain rehearsals and to being available for the full day and evening of the show, in order to participate.

Combined Rehearsals Calendar

All classes have some combined rehearsals so that they can practise performing alongside other groups of dancers and become familiar with the spacing onstage. Check out the combined rehearsals calendar below.


Parents must give permission for their child to take part in our show. Give us a yay or nay as soon as you can so we can get onto sourcing costumes and planning positions onstage.

Concert Info Email

Want to get into the nitty gritty details? In term two, we sent out a detailed email to all dancers, regarding the show. If you missed it for any reason, don't worry we've got your back.

Full Cast Rehearsal

Our very important full cast rehearsal is on Sunday 20th October November from 12:30pm - 4:15pm at Wellington High School Tinbull Gym. All dancers must attend this rehearsal if they are involved in the show. It’s our only chance to pull the whole show together before the actual day. If you are in the Intro or Finale dances you will be asked to arrive at 11:30am. We will also hold a prize giving at the end of this rehearsal so parents are invited to pop in from 4pm. There are no costumes worn at this rehearsal.

Costume Days

We handed out and checked all costumes at our Costume Days in September. If any dancers were not able to attend, they need to contact us urgently, so we can arrange another time for a costume trial.

Cast Teeshirts

We are selling beautiful cast teeshirts which our dancers are welcome to purchase and wear to classes, rehearsals and the show day itself. Get in touch to order your cast tee now!
