What to Wear
To Rehearsal – Wear anything that is comfortable that you can move in! Wear joggers and comfortable clothes that you feel good in.
At Recital – To participate our Daddies are required to wear a dark suit, white shirt, light coloured tie matching their ballerina’s tutu and dark / black shoes.
Please note – there will be no change facilities available at the recital venues so we recommend you arrive looking fabulous in your suit ready to dance! Our ballerinas will wear their special recital costume so the dance looks magical.
Tiny Tutus embraces an ‘Open Door’ policy which opens classes to everyone to share with their ballerina. But this is a very special and unique class just for Daddies to share with their ballerinas.
As such all Daddy Daughter Dance rehearsals are “Closed Rehearsals”, meaning Mums, friends and family may not watch the Daddy Daughter rehearsals. The magic of seeing them together on stage at recital is such a fabulous moment and worth the suspense!
Registrations for our 2020 Daddy Daughter Dance open on Monday 3rd August.
Please complete the “Request to Participate Form” via our website at this time.
Once submitted, your request will be processed by our Memberships Coordinator. Confirmation of your participation will be sent to you via email within 3 working days of receiving your request.
Fee to participate includes all rehearsals, stage rehearsal and access online to the choreography video and notes. Fee is payable at the time of registration.
Siblings will need there own participating adult to dance with be it Dad, Uncle or Granddad and will both have time to twirl with dad on stage.
No. Grandfathers, Uncles, Older brothers, or a family friend can substitute!
It is absolutely encouraged to attend all three class rehearsals. However we understand how busy life can be so the minimum requirement is two class practices as well as the compulsory Stage Rehearsal.
It’s important to practice at home (either with or without your ballerina).
A child’s response in class and on stage can be very different. The Daddy Daughter dance is an experience that will last a lifetime and spending time at rehearsal and working through tricky situations with your daughter is as significant as performing the actual dance. Try to remember this important fact if you feel confused, frustrated and tired so this can be the best experience possible.
Dads sit in the audience and watch the recital as usual. The Daddy Daughter dance is usually the second last song. We will ask for the Dads to come back stage during the performance. Dads will all meet at the stage doors right before the performance and we will bring their daughters to them. Don’t worry – we walk through everything at stage rehearsal before recital. This is why attendance at stage rehearsal is compulsory.
YES! We know this is what you are here for! The Daddy Daughter Dance is one of the last items, so dads can re-join their families in the audience for the finale.
