Rehearsals

Most rehearsals take place at Poltair School in St Austell. They start a couple of weeks or so after auditions on receipt of a letter informing you if you were successful in the audition. They are weekly and take place on most days of the Spring Half Term.

Volunteers

The dancers are only the tip of the iceberg. A multitude of different tasks need to be carried out for every performance; from needlework to being a chaperone(see note above), all are carried out by volunteers. Some tasks take only a few minutes while the successful completion of others is dependant on a lifetimes interest. All help is gratefully received.
