We are thrilled to announce that the new “Adelaide Theatre Academy” uniforms are ready to order! We expect them to arrive in time for the commencement of Term 3.
The uniform is specifically designed for our high school age students attending classes for Senior Musical Theatre, Advanced Senior Musical Theatre, Senior Dance, Performance Troupe and Showstoppers.
The new tops were designed following feedback from our senior students that they wanted a uniform which was more reflective of their age and that they were proud to wear. They told us that they felt the Theatre Bugs logo was more suitable for a younger age group.
As such, we have responded with a more mature styling and expanded the use of theAdelaide Theatre Academy logo to encompass our high-school age classes. Both the singlet and the polo tops are made from a good quality fabric and feature an embroidered logo to maximise longevity.
Adelaide Theatre Academy uniforms are discounted to only $29.50 until the end of this financial year, 30th June 2018 (usually $35)
Orders received after this date may not be received until August in Term 3.
Please note we are unable to hold excess stock, and once a term we will place an order for the number of uniforms purchased. Once it arrives we will send it out to your child’s class unless collected beforehand.
A few parents have asked, “Why does Theatre Bugs have a uniform?”
Like most sporting, drama and dancing clubs and schools, Theatre Bugs has a uniform. The reasons we have a uniform include:
Health & Safety
We need our Teachers to speedily recognise all of their students. This is particularly important at pick-up and drop off times to ensure that students are easily accounted for and in the appropriate company of an adult. This is even more important at sites where there are other community groups sharing a venue.
Inclusiveness and a Sense of Belonging
After 20 years of teaching performing arts to Adelaide’s children, we have learned that our uniform helps children to feel a sense of belonging within their class group and their Theatre Bugs peers. Wearing the uniform promotes a sense of ‘team’ which maximises a culture of inclusiveness in which each child is an equally important member of the group. Our uniforms allow students to define themselves by their personalities, instead of how they dress.
Focussed Learning Environments
Further to our children having a really good and fun time in class, is a shared desire for our students to understand and strive to continually improve their skills, confidence and capability. The Theatre Bugs uniforms help students to keep a focus on these objectives.
Comfortable and Practical
Wearing practical and comfortable clothing enables students to successfully achieve the physical demands of a Theatre Bugs class. School uniforms and items of casual attire can make it difficult for students to move freely. This can restrict progress and impact confidence.
We invest in a quality product for our uniforms which, if treated properly, will retain their shape and designs well. You can observe many of our students wearing shirts with the original Theatre Bugs logo which changed nearly two years ago. Many of these shirts have been handed down from one sibling to another as they grow up with Theatre Bugs.
