Port Macquarie Performing Arts would like to celebrate a wonderful first semester and show how hard our students are working in class with a Mid Year Showcase on Sunday 25th June at the GLASSHOUSE. There are many reasons why we do this. All students have worked incredibly hard over the 6 months in classes, it is important that everyone has the opportunity to perform and enjoy the process of working as a team. We are very lucky to have a beautiful theatre to be able to do this, which makes it all the more exciting. This year we will be having two shows the first starting at 2pm and the second at 4pm. Thank you for all your support.
Tickets go on sale 6th June 2022 and all studio accounts (tuition, costumes, etc.) must be paid in full before family members may purchase Mid Year Showcase tickets.

A big part of dance training is learning through performance. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. The performing experience helps build self-esteem and self-confidence and can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future university or job opportunities.
Students, It is also very important for your self-esteem to have the chance to show your parents/ carers and friends what you have been working towards throughout the past two terms. Working towards a performance is a long process but an integral part of a dancer’s life as a performer. The process of rehearsal, costume, production and show is a measure of patience, discipline & hard work but most of all joy when you finally get to dance and perform for an audience.
Some of you may have already had the privilege of performing on a stage at eisteddfods etc , but for some this will be your first time. It is an exciting time and it is important that you all realise, this is a great opportunity for you to shine as a person, a dancer and a team. It is also a great chance for us as a new school to present ourselves to the community in a professional theatre and atmosphere. I know you will all do your best and I hope you enjoy every moment.
Dedication to the Mid Year Showcase commitments are the responsibility of both students and their parents. We’ve created this handbook in an effort to clarify what we expect from you in terms of commitments and responsibility to the annual Mid Year Showcase, the school, and other students and parents
