Q: How much will tickets cost for the showcases? 

A: We will confirm this in the 2 weeks leading to tickets going on sale but we can tell you the prices at the last showcase ranged between £32-£36 per adult and £20-£24 per child inclusive of the meal. Please note due to inflation these prices may vary but this will provide a rough idea.  

Q: How many seats are on a table? 

A: 12. 

Q: What time does my child need to arrive? 

A: Please refer to your information email which informs you which showcase your child is attending - as this will explain arrival times.  You will be able to stay at the venue bar while you wait for the showcase to start, if you wish. 

Q: Will my child only be in one dance?

Q: How many tickets am I allowed to buy?


Q: How can I ensure I sit with my friend?

A: The easiest way is for one person to book all the tickets (the system will allow you to do this).

Q: Do I need to purchase costumes for either Showcases? 

A: No, we tried to keep costs to a minimum.  As this is an event purely for the children to have a celebration of their hard work throughout the year children only need to dance in Aspire uniform and then change into party outfits once they have danced.

Street dance and Drama: ANY Aspire uniform, e.g Aspire joggers, Aspire baseball shirt, any style Aspire crop top, Aspire shorts, Aspire leggings

Footwear: Black trainers or jazz shoes

Ballet / Tap: Aspire leotard with Aspire shorts, or for our younger students (prep/primary) Aspire leotard with skirt.

Ballet Footwear: Ballet tights and ballet shoes

Tap Footwear: Black ankle socks and black tap shoes

Lyrical / contemporary / modern: Aspire leotard with Aspire shorts (and Aspire crop top if required)

Footwear: Bare feet or Foot undies / Pirouette shoes (only if you prefer to wear them rather than bare feet)

Hair in a low pony tail for all dances.


Q: I can’t afford to buy ball gowns or prom type dresses for my family, what do I do?

A: You may dress as THEME NEEDED HERE showcase, or of course simply smart dress.  We do not expect anyone to purchase expensive outfits.

Q: The tickets are more expensive on the front row, why is this?

A: We tried to make the event as affordable as we possibly could for everyone and as similar to theatre settings we didn’t feel it fair to charge people sitting on the back row of tables the same price as those tables with a front row view. This isn’t staggered seating like it is at the shows so thought this was the fairest way.


Q: Can my child just attend to perform and then leave?

A: Unfortunately this isn’t possible as we have secured the event and prices on the basis people attend the entire evening.


Q: Can we attend without having to purchase the meal?

A: As above unfortunately no, the venue is secured with the meal inclusive.


Q: Do we get to choose our meal?

A: The meal choices will be listed with ticket type so please select which option you would prefer. You can also find the food options at the bottom of this page.


Q: Can my child attend on their own?

A: The venue has confirmed that anyone aged 16 or under would require a chaperone so a minimum of one ticketed adult would need to attend with each child.

Q: What time do I need to start queuing?

A: The great news is the seats are already chosen so no one need arrive earlier than necessary - please see your child's showcase poster for arrival times and doors opening times

Q: I won a trophy at the last showcase, do I need to return this?

A: No. All showcase trophies are for the award winners to keep.

Q: Will there be a DVD of this showcase?

A: No, but you're welcome to record your child dancing, just please do not post any footage of any other children to social media as some parents do not give their consent for this.
