Winter Wonderland Showcase
Academy of Dance holds an informal all school demonstration, “Winter Wonderland”, in December each year. This short performance is held at a local auditorium or our studios. Students have the opportunity to show families & friends various techniques they’ve learned in class from the beginning of the year.
June Formal Recital
Academy of Dance holds our all-school formal dance recital every June at a Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available for purchase in advance (refer to Calender of Events) and the day of recital. Costumes are ordered before winter demonstrations and are an extra expense that we collect by December. There is a mandatory dress rehearsal for this recital.
Professional photographers take class and individual pictures of students in their recital costumes. Academy of Dance encourages all classmates to attend whether purchasing pictures or not, as these photographs are creating memories for a lifetime!
Special classes and camps are held in addition to our regulary scheduled classes and is a great time for new and existing students to dance. Parents are encouraged to attend the last week of classes for demonstrations and Awards.
