We host a variety of events at the studio for community to get involved. Check them out.
Mid Year Performance
Each year toward the end of Term 2, we host a mid year performance celebrating everything students have learnt in the first half of the year. This is an energetic performance where everyone is trying something new.
The Mid Year Concert is hosted on the first or second weekend of July.
End of Year Performance
This is the big performance everyone awaits with anticipation. During the 6 month lead up to the show, we focus on an important social justice matter educating our students on issues that help improve their wellbeing and connection to community. These important lessons are then weaved into their performance.
The End of Year Concert is performed on either the first or second weekend of December.
Students attending private lessons are welcome to compete in local and interstate competitions.
Our advanced performance teams enter local competitions.
To date our students have qualified for and won national titles.
Australian Schools Challenge
Rockit is proud to perform in Australia's newest major event, the Australian Schools Challenge. Public, private and independent schools create powerful storytelling works to inspire each other.
Each school competes for a variety of prizes rewarding positive growth mind set.
Workshops with Industry Professionals
We believe it is important for our students to meet, talk and learn from industry professionals. Each year we have a number of guests coming to the studio to share stories of their life as well as leading workshops for students to participate in.
Some of these guests have included:
Rejane Linford-Garcia (Dance Alive UK), Marnie Josefine Fiebig (WAAPA), Liesl Bourke (TUI Cruises Germany), Jorja Warburton (Dynamite QLD), Brooklyn Thornhill (Footings QLD), Penelope Shum (Soul Council SA), Jasmine Lynch (Independent Kpop Artist SA), Bboy Dreaded (Kings Only SA), Sarah Wilson (Lewis Major and Co), Melski Mel (original Adelaide Bgirl), Bboy Ma Moose (QLD), Locking Nai (NSW), Bboy Monsta (QLD), Stefaan Morrow (Lewis Major and Co), Melski Mel (Adelaide original Bgirl), Jazz Hriskin (Independent Dance Artist SA) and David Booth (Aboriginal Artist SA).
Meet and Greets
Along with workshops, we also run important meet and greets. These opportunities allow our students to meet people who have successfully achieved outstanding goals in the performing arts industry. These meet and greets serve as a reminder to our students, that with hard work, you can achieve amazing things. Some of our guests have included: the Rybka Twins (WA), the Dream Team (QLD), Candy Apples (“Dance Moms” USA), Ella Havelka (The Ella Foundation, Australian Ballet Company and Bangarra Dance Theatre), Josef Brown (Sydney Dance Company, Neighbours Television Show and MDM), Liesl Bourke (TUI Cruises Germany), Jennifer Barry (founding member of Australian Dance Theatre), Yolande Brown (Bangarra Dance Theatre).
Throughout the year students are able to participate in exciting dance battles. These events help students step outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves. They are also important moments allowing young people to hang out together and express themselves as individuals.
We are big fans of the annual Mount Barker Christmas pageant, and march every year as the Rockit Reindeers. Look out for our gigantic truck carrying all our tiny reindeers as the older students lead the way on foot. This is such a fun community event which everyone loves to get involved in.
The Mount Barker pageant takes place the first Saturday of December.
At the end of Term 1 and Term 3, we invite family and friends into the studio to come and watch students in class. This is a wonderful way for students to show their families what they have been learning, and proudly show off their new skills.
Rockit's Got Talent
A talent performance where students take over and present works they have created themselves. Some students work in larger groups, others have selected to work in duos and trios whilst some brave students present solos.
Parents and friends are invited to come and see the students creations in a welcoming performance where the students take pride in the work they have created. This project is fabulous for team building, confidence building plus communication and creative development skills.
Adelaide Christmas Pageant
Rockit is honoured to march in the Adelaide Christmas pageant alongside our incredible team of drummers, the Heathfield Renegades.
Students look forward to this day each year as they truly enjoy the interactive dance routines performed along the pageant route.
