At the end of each year IPAS holds several performances for you to appear in and for family and friends to see how much you have achieved in the year. While these performances are not compulsory it is suggested everyone participates as it not only teaches team work but gives the stage performance experience no other medium can match. Performing in front of an audience is a skill that is a major part of the performing arts.
There are usually 2 extra rehearsals near the concerts which will be for the professional photo shoot, dress and technical rehearsals. If you are in the shows these are compulsory events.
The shows are divided into two events
End of year Showcase – NOVEMBER. Gladstone Park Secondary College, one show only.
This show usually incorporates the weeknight dance classes, singing, acting, acro and VET Dance.
End of year Concert – DECEMBER. Plenty Ranges Arts and Convention Centre, two shows.
This show incorporates the Saturday dance classes and Elite Performance Teams.
Throughout the year we also have small performances usually held at the studio for acting, singing, Elite teams, Private lesson students and VET Dance.
Private lesson students and Elite teams have many performance opportunities thought the year and this is documented in the Elite Team Prospectus on the website.
