Two Recitals!! and community performances too!
Dancers LOVE to get into costume and make-up and perform on stage...so we don't wait until June to do so! This past year we put on a Christmas recital called "Broadway Dance Company Christmas Spectacular, " modeled after the Radio City Rockette's Christmas Spectacular. It was quite a show...from reindeer to dolls to a live nativity, everything Christmas came to life on our stage. We even had a bunch of our most awesome "dance dads" dancing in Santa costumes! You will find that this is the only dance studio in the area to put on a major Christmas recital...and the dancers love it!
Finally, dancers and tumblers will celebrate their year by performing in another recital at the end of April. Two springs ago the theme was Disney, and last year we celebrated the movies in "Red Carpet, Silver Screen." This year the students performed their little hearts out in "Never Grow Up." Each new recital the audience says "it's the best one yet!" The spring recital is the final reward for a year of fun, hard work and learning routines. Dancers and tumblers love receiving their participation medals too. Each dancer performs in two or more routines, and tumblers perform one. We have had very large audiences given the size of our studio...our last recital had about 900 in attendance for a show with 110 students.
Students may have other local performance opportunities throughout the year. For example, in June we will perform again... for a great cause... at Relay For Life. We have also danced at Park Terrace, Greenbriar Meadows, and Haws Memorial nursing/assisted living homes. These additional performance opportunities help the dancers grow as performers in their self-confidence while also giving to the community through dance. Competition dancers have even more performance opportunities competing at regionals in Nashville, Memphis, and St. Louis.
