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! Every other year or so we put on a Christmas recital called "Broadway Dance Company Christmas Spectacular, " modeled after the Radio City Rockette's Christmas Spectacular. It is quite a show...from reindeer to dolls to a live nativity, everything Christmas comes to life on our stage. We even have a bunch of our most awesome "dance dads" dancing in Santa costumes! Other years we have done "A Christmas Carol" and "The Nutcracker," "Seussical," and a show with all music celebrating Jesus's birth. 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 in the spring. This past year, the theme was an audience favorite- Disney, and once we celebrated the movies in "Red Carpet, Silver Screen." Another year the students performed their little hearts out in "Channel Surfing," a TV-themed show. 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 dance and tumbling class performs! We have had very large audiences given the size of our studio- even selling out the theater- proving that the shows are so good each dancer brings a large group of family, friends, and school teachers to see them!
Students may have other local performance opportunities throughout the year. For example, we have performed multiple times for Relay For Life. In September, we dance in the Twin Cities' Banana Festival grand parade! We have also danced in The Soybean Festival Parade, and 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 while competing at regional competitions in Nashville, Memphis, and St. Louis.
