Small Fry Dance Club Performances

Every June and December, Small Fry Dance Club offers our dancers in the Dance & Performance levels to take the stage at the Cubberley Community Theatre in Palo Alto, Ca. It’s the first time on stage for many of our dancers. We offer a unique experience that is age appropriate for the dancers, and fun for the whole family. 

Performance Participation Registration Open: 2/5/18 – 3/15/18
Late show Registration (add $10 to fee): 3/16/18 – 3/23/18 @ 5:00pm
Extra Tickets on sale: Monday 5/28/18
Preschool tickets mailed home: Monday 6/11/18
Show Day! Saturday 6/30/18



Each June and December our Small Frys have the opportunity to take the stage and show off what they have been working on in class. Our performances are designed to be stress free for both your dancer and the entire family. Your dancers will be on stage for the entirety of the performance, which will last roughly 30 minutes. It’s a great way to expose your little one to the stage and boost their confidence!

We are proud to announce the featured number will be to “It’s a hard knock life.” from Annie! You will start to hear that song in classes soon.

General Performance Curriculum Notes: Our performance curriculum for Dance and Performance classes (45 and 60 minute classes) will be focused on musical theatre from now through the end of June.

Please note participating in the show is optional, but very fun!

Although we have a 6-week registration period shows do fill up.  Once a show hour reaches 33 performers we will close the show. You can only add your dancer to a show wait-list if they are signed up for an alternate hour.   Wait-listing for this purpose means you would like to move to a different show hour.  Everybody on a waitlist is in the show. We simply switch your hour if space becomes available in your primary time choice.  The changes tend to happen close to show day if at all.

Participation Fee
$95 per performer
2 Family tickets (your dancer does not need a ticket)

All items listed are provided by Small Fry and are yours to keep

Navy blue Motionwear biketard
Gray half apron
Bandana – hair or head

Chino Shorts

All performers will be barefoot.
No shoes for the costume this round.

Hair and Make up
Hairstyle for this show is up to you and your dancer.  We do recommend pulling hair back, away from the face.  Wearing make up to the show is also up to you and your dancer.  It is common to enhance features so dancers can be seen on stage.   For example; lips and blush.  You can decide as a family when you want to add this element.   


Please note, failure to follow costume and footwear requirements will result in ineligibility for participation in future shows.  If you have any questions, please ask.

This is a great learning experience for the Small Fry’s.  Our rules and requirements are in place for safety, confident and comfortable dancers, and reinforcement of classroom curriculum.  Please trust our guidance as professional teachers and dancers. We want your children to have a wonderful experience and the details count!

Need a dance class but not under age 5? PCPA is our dance program for ages 5 to adults.

PCPA is a creative and performing arts program that requires dancers to be both athletes and artists. Our ultimate goal is to instill dance intensity and drive inspired by much more than trophies and sequins. We believe in building strong fundamentals, technique, and discipline through dance training and performance experience. You can count on building a respect and love for dance whether you are training for personal or professional goals.
