First Time Performer

At some stage everyone has been a first time performer.

It can be a bit daunting knowing what class is best, what level to start at or even what to wear.

 

Don’t worry, we can help. First things first, all trial classes are free and

there is no obligation to continue. This is for all classes and genres we have.

On top of that we will chat with you about what experience (or none) you might have

and what genre would be best for you given your likes.

Then we place you on the roll and you come to a class for a trial.

 

We will tell you when the class is on, who the teacher is, and what to wear.

As a general rule for a trial class it is best to wear something that allows free movement and is comfortable.

Please read our F.A.Q. page HERE as it may answer some questions or

fill out trial form HERE.

Then when you love the class (we bet you do) you can either fill out an

enrolment form in the office or you can do it online on our website.

 

Simple as that.

EXAMS

   

 

Geronimo Performing Arts offers exams for Ballet, Jazz and Tap. Our other genres do not take exams.

 

Ballet exams are held at the end of Term 1 each year. Jazz/Tap exams exams are generally held in the second half of Term 3 each year. Dates for entries and exams are confirmed closer to the time.

 

As exams are organised externally, at the head office for each genre, entries and fees need to be finalized well in advance.

All teachers work to enhance individual progress and provide incentive for improvement while working towards an exam, and eligible students are encouraged to take exams, although they are in no way compulsory. Students are entered strictly at the teacher’s discretion.

 

To ensure a high standard, extra classes will be held at the studio close to exam time. These classes are compulsory for students entered into exams at a cost that will be advised at the time and that is extra to the standard term fees.

For more detailed information regarding exams, please see HERE.

 

Shows

END OF YEAR

 

At the end of every year Geronimo Performing Arts showcases the wonderful students and all the 

work they have done during the year in a spectacular performance. 

While participation by students is not compulsory it is highly encouraged so the students can

participate in the fun and excitement of the 'on stage' experience.

Our show is a huge undertaking by students and faculty with over 2000 costumes, around 450

students, elaborate lighting and many props.

A show of this size allows students to feel the excitement of live performance and to

experience the 'backstage' buzz of all involved. There is just something amazing about

walking onto stage and having the audience applause.

 

Furthermore, students get to understand what goes into large productions and 

the work involved. Many students help with costume making, set building and seniors sometimes

get to be involved with choreography and concept design.

Shows are held at in the Theatre of Sacred Heart College, in Glendowie.

Our shows truly are the highlight of the year.

MID YEAR

At the end of term 2 we have an in house show case for contemporary and hip hop students.

This is a recognition of the progress for the year and to let friends and family 

experience the 'in class' feel. This normally consists of a series 

of pre-prepared dance routines.

Further to this, Musical Theatre will have their 'Jr' production from the Broadway Junior Collection.

Broadway Junior®musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals,

Disney favorites and modern works, custom-tailored to the needs of young people and schools. 

Rainbow Connection - our studio café

Nestled inside Geronimo Performing Arts is a little coffee haven called Rainbow Connection.

While you can obviously get your caffeine fix here ... we have other refreshments and snacks on sale too.


We sell hot and iced teas, milkshakes, juices and often have special drinks for the season. Plus water of course in case you forget your water bottle. On top of that we have lots of yummy treats including cupcakes and slices, chips, popcorn and chocolate bars.

We also have some gluten-free and vegan treats. Our GF brownie is legendary.

So next time you're in, treat yourself or your dancer and come visit the Rainbow Connection!
