The countdown continues.   Tickets go on sale from Thursday, November 9th.  They are available in person from the Box Office at DRTCC.  Box Office opens at 9.30am. They can also be purchased online . We cannot stress enough the importance of getting in early to avoid disappointment.  In previous years shows have sold out very quickly.  We now offer a third show and also have alleviated the amount of children in each show by having our gorgeous little Angelina’s perform in only one show.  We know they will put their best foot forward. It is therefore imperative that Angelina parents purchase their tickets on the first day of ticket sales.

Performance Shows for Angelina’s are as follows;
Saturday, 2rd December  2pm  - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9.45am classes
Sunday, 3rd Dec 11am- Friday 9.45am class
Sunday, 3rd Dec 5pm – All Saturday Angelina classes
A reminder that tickets are charged at $30 for Adults and $28 for concession.  If your child would like to watch the show before or after their performance, they will need to have a ticket purchased for them. 

Costumes for Angelina students were measured Saturday, 21st October and deposits paid.  It is imperative that all students measurements are made available to us ASAP if you didn’t go to Measurement Day or make other arrangements.  Please inbox Stepping Out Facebook page or email

It’s time to get really excited because after all of our hard work in class we are now about to step on to stage for our very first stage rehearsal.  Our stage rehearsals will be held on Sunday, 12th November at Dubbo Regional Theatre, Darling St.  The students are asked to please enter through the backstage entrance at Carrington Ave and mark your child’s name off the roll.  This is a closed rehearsal and only performers will be allowed entry beyond stage doors and area.
Stagecraft Rehearsals prepare the students for the correct manner to enter and exit the stage, the stage dimensions and other important features of Performance.  They are an important and exciting lead up to Dress Rehearsals and our Concert and are sure to combat all the nerves and ensure the performers are feeling prepared, confident and most importantly, very excited about their performance. Students should come dressed in dancewear and the entire faculty will be present on the day to keep a watchful eye over our stars.  Please collect your child from the backstage entrance at the close of their rehearsal.

9.15- 10am Saturday 9.30am Angelina class, Saturday 10.15am Angelina class

In the coming weeks, we will also be sending home notes regarding our Dress Rehearsal on Thursday 30th November and Friday 1st Dec( we have decided to run our rehearsal over two days to ensure it runs more smoothly.  Angelina students will all be on Thursday 30th November , 3.30- 4.30pm. First half performers will then run from 5-8pm. Second half performers will rehearse on Friday 1st Dec.  We will also be sending home an invitation for all Angelina students and their families to attend their special Presentation on the 9th December. As soon as order of appearance is finalized, students will be notified and we now invite expressions of interest from anyone who may be interested in volunteering assistance in the countdown and on the Concert and rehearsal days. Notes regarding Costume Balances and the organization of both Dress Rehearsal and Concert Day will be sent home closer to each event.

Our 2017 Presentation will be at the close of our 5pm show for all students other than our Angelina’s .  Colin Rouse will be filming and taking photos of all three shows.  Order forms for DVD's will be available at the studio and be sent home with students.  We ask that all orders be sent directly to Colin Rouse and not left at the studio.  All information will be available on the order envelopes. 

We understand it’s a lot of information and we thank all our studio families once again for the support and enthusiasm you are so kindly extending to us.
We hope you will enjoy the show as much as we have enjoyed producing it.  It truly is a magical and memorable time for our performers and we feel very blessed that you have chosen us to contribute to your children’s precious childhood memories.

Happy Dancing,
