Undoubtedly the most exciting day on the Jazz Factory calendar is Concert Day. Usually held in November, our concerts are held at the Greenhalgh Theatre at the UTS Ku-ring-gai in Lindfield.
Although the theatre seats 1100 odd people, Jazz Factory needs to perform two concerts in order to fit in all our audience members and all the dances that the students have prepared. We do one morning and one afternoon concert. Rather than having a Junior and a Senior concert as is done at many dance schools, for the audience’s enjoyment, both the morning and the afternoon concerts display the talents of students of a range of ages. All general jazz students will dance in either the morning or the afternoon concert, with senior students and performance troupes dancing in both concerts.
Our concert finales are a highlight every year, showcasing the talents of every performer in the concert. Around 350 performers dancing on stage, down the aisles and throughout the audience is quite a sight to behold! Past finale ‘themes’ have included: the Olympics, Grease, Queen, Bat out of Hell, Hair, Showbusiness, Moulin Rouge, Chicago, Tribute to ABBA, Dare to Dream (following the story of a young dancer’s path to stardom), 70’s Disco Fever!, Evolution of Rock ‘n’ Roll! West Side Story. Tribute to Michael Jackson in under 7 minutes, "Hairspray" and in 2011 we brought Disney Magic to the stage. 2012 was a New York City inspired Finale. What does our audience have to look forward to in our 2013 finale?! You’ll have to wait and see!
