DANCE PERFORMANCES

After a 2 year hiatus, we are going back on stage! We are super excited to bring these performances back. Our performances are the culmination of the previous 6 months of instruction. It 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.

All dancers enrolled in our Dance & Performance classes are eligible to take part in our bi-annual performances. These performances take place each June and December. They are family friendly, age appropriate shows. Each lasts roughly 30 minutes, with each dancer being on stage for the majority of the show.

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

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 20 dancers on stage per show time.

Are there extra rehearsals outside of class?
No. Everything they will need for the stage, they will learn in class. 

You may use the button above to register. The button will go active on 9/15/21. If you click on it before then, nothing will happen. We will email all enrolled families when the sign up for is live.

Wearing makeup to the show is 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.

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.
