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

The 2017 Pump Dance production is ‘The Wizard of Oz’, which will be held on Saturday 4th November in the Wellington Opera House. There is a Matinee Show at 3pm and an Evening Show at 7pm. The show is roughly 2 hours 30min long (including a 15min interval). Tickets details are below.

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 before Monday 21 August are invited to perform in the show. Students need to commit to certain rehearsals and to being available the full day and evening of the show, in order to participate. If you would like the concert information sent to you, please contact us.

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 by clicking here

Costume Days

We have handed out the costumes to all students at our Costume Days at the start of September. If any dancers did not attend, they need to contact us, so we can arrange a time for your costume trial.

Full Cast Rehearsal

Our very important full cast rehearsal is on Sunday 29th October 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 Finale you have been asked to arrive at 11:45am. We will also hold a prize giving at the end of this rehearsal so parents are invited to pop in from 4pm.

Cast Teeshirts

We have designed some wonderful cast teeshirts which our dancers are welcome to purchase and wear to all classes, rehearsals and the show day itself. The first order will arrive at the start of term 4. If you’d like to order a teeshirt, please email us by 5pm on Friday 6th October.
