ALL INFO CAN BE DOWNLOADED NOW. PLEASE SEE LINKS ON THIS PAGE AND ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL REQUIRED INFO :-)
Friday 8th March; 7pm (all dancers from Jedburgh, Duns, Melrose + Kelso Senior classes)
Saturday 9th March; 6pm (all Kelso dancers only)
With the range of classes at the school growing it is not possible for so many dancers to perform cross two nights so this year I am trying it this way again- splitting the branches and Kelso into separate shows. The different ways I arrange show have different advantages so never expect the same year to year.
All dancers are welcome to take part. If your dancer is junior, inter or senior class it is assumed that they will perform unless you’d like to opt them out. If this is the case I must receive written confirmation of this. Please understand that I have 433 pupils, if you tell me face to face one day during a class changeover its very likely that my head was actually elsewhere…
If you dancer is MINI or INFANT you MUST opt them IN TO PERFORM. This was a change for this year after feedback of the evening being too late for many little ones. Therefore if you’d like to let your child perform you must fill out an online permission slip which can be found at mpulsivedance.com/parents-hub
Springwood Hall, Kelso. After our first year at this venue in 2018 I am bringing the show back here and ironing out any initial teething problems which come with organising such large events in such a large venue… We have booked in a higher stage for improved viewing and there will be different heaters, a sound monitor and a carpet back stage for better comfort. I am keeping a large audience but limiting tickets slightly more to allow a little more space for audience. Unfortunately I can’t book dry weather on the night or the lead up so we may just need to take the venues pre-show advice and park in town and walk over the bridge if you’d like to avoid the mud J I haven’t assessed the weather to be any reason to move the performance as the venue and time of year worked really well for the kids.
Tickets will be limited to 3 per family in first instance. Please stick to this. If anyone is noticed to have purchased extra then they will be cancelled and void.
Tickets go on sale at ticketsource.co.uk/mpulsivedance on Sat 26th Jan 8.30am
There will be NO physical over the counter sales, and there will be no entry without a barcoded ticket
All dancers will be costumed for the show. In January a file will be published online with all classes and what they’ll be asked to wear. I always keep costs as low as possible and keep costumes basic but effective. In any case where more extreme costuming is required our fundraising committee may can step in. you’ll be told if your costume is being supplied or funded. Unfortunately they can’t all be due to time, cost and space of storage…
