Upcoming Performance Information

REGISTRATION FOR OUR JUNE 2022 SHOW HAS NOW OPENED! READ DETAILS BELOW.

Our performances are the culmination of the previous 6 months of instruction. It is your dancer’s chance to show off everything they have been learning in class. We are holding our next performance at Zohar School of Dance in Palo Alto, CA.  This will be a scaled-back version of our usual performances, but it’s a big step towards getting back to normal.

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

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

My dancer has never been on stage before. What can I expect?
Our performances are a wonderful, stress-free way to introduce your dancer to theatre and stage. The experience will build their confidence and give them a better understanding of what to expect as they progress to older programs. The dancers will be lead by up to 5 teachers on stage, and will always have someone close by to help. While every dancer will react differently to being on stage, the majority of the kids (and parents) have a great experience.

How long are the performances?
Each performance lasts about 30 minutes.

How many dancers are on stage at once?
We allow a maximum of 25 dancers on stage per showtime.

Are there extra rehearsals outside of class?
No. All preparations for the performance will happen in class.

What are the current covid protocols at the venue?
The performance venue currently requires all performers, audience, and staff to be fully vaccinated (if age eligible) to participate in the shows.  We will be checking vaccine cards at the entrance. Masks are also required for all. These rules are subject to change (and we expect they will) and we will keep you posted if things change between now and the show date.
