Spring Dance SpectacularOur year end show (the beginning of May) is so wonderful, so entertaining and so professional that it has been described by many in the dance industry as “by far the best recital featuring amateur dancers in the country!” We believe that dance, in its fullest meaning, is a performing art and at seasons end we encourage all of our students to participate in our lavish spring stage show. Our Spring Dance Spectacular features elaborate themed productions with creative dance ideas and costuming, professional sound, lighting and scenery. All of our students, from our youngest to our most advanced are well prepared for the Spectacular and perform with confidence, precision and enthusiasm. Each student is fully rehearsed for their performance and knows their choreography. This gala event is a joy to invite family and friends to attend.
