COMMOTION TROUPE NEWS

2020. Blink and you'll miss it. Can you believe we're literally more than halfway through Term One? I can't! For those of you who are new to Troupe at Commotion this year, welcome :) Our teams have been hard at work in class preparing for the upcoming performance season. 

CAMDEN SHOW

A long-standing tradition for us. This year the 6's, 8's, 10's and 12's will perform at Camden Show - along with some of our RSD students. We're performing on Saturday the 28th March. Arrival is 3:30pm at the NAB stage. Performance is scheduled for 4pm. Performers will receive a free ticket to Camden Show.

ROYAL EASTER SHOW

Thanks to a successful audition from our 8/u Troupe last year, we have been invited back to perform at the esteemed Royal Easter Show. Our performance will be on Saturday 4th April at 3:00pm. Arrival time is 2:30pm at the Amphitheatre. Performers  will receive a free ticket to Royal Easter Show. All age groups will perform, from 6's to Seniors, as well as Project Revolution.

COSTUME FOR PUBLIC PERFORMANCES

This year I want for our students to perform in a unison outfit for all of their public performances (eg. fetes, community events etc.) The outfit will consist of the 2019 black Commotion t-shirt - (must be unaltered) and our special black & white print leggings, which are available to purchase from reception for a discounted price of $28. This is worn with white high-top sneakers, and white socks.

If your child doesn't have a black 2019 Commotion t-shirt (the Finale one), then please order one at reception ASAP! (By the end of this week at the latest.) They are $30.

COSTUMES

JACKETS

At the end of this term we are ordering a new batch of troupe jackets. They are $78 and can be ordered from reception. The design is matching the previous years' ones, and the only change is our new logo - so unless your child has lost or grown out of there's you won't need to invest in a new jacket yet if they already own one. But for those new to Troupe, the jacket is a must for arriving to competitions and performances etc.
