Performance Opportunities

**We are planning a return to regular performances for the 2021-22 season! The preliminary performance group schedule is below. All TBD, based on pandemic status.**

 

SPRING SHOWCASE

Downtown Dance offers students several performance opportunities each year. Children's classes present an end of term demonstration for friends and family during class time on the last day of Fall and Winter terms. All students (age 3-adult) are encouraged to participate in the Spring Showcase each June at the Corvallis High School Theatre.

Our Spring term culminates in this performance at the CHS Theater in June. Students are not required to participate, but classes will focus more on this process in spring than previous terms. There are many benefits to being part of the showcase and we strongly encourage participation. It not only serves as an educational tool, but as a way to explore dance as a performance art…and it is fun!

While preparations for the show do not begin until Winter term, it is our intention that students participate in classes for the full year, with an opportunity for in class performances in fall and winter to prepare for the final performance at the end of spring term. The fall and winter terms offer a foundation of technique, while the spring term focuses primarily on the performance. Students not enrolled in a class by winter term may not be able to join during spring term.

Example Spring Showcase Timeline (2022)

  • Mid-February- commitment form and initial costume fee due, classes begin work on showcase material
  • March- Costumes ordered
  • April- classes increase time spent on showcase material
  • May- final costume fee due, classes continue preparations for the show

REPERTORY GROUPS -   **2021-22  Season is happening!**

We have several Repertory Groups that are open to students  enrolled in at least one class each term. These performance groups are by audition and they perform in various local dance performances. Our season will kick off at the Majestic Theatre in "Making Spirits Bright: A Winter Dance Concert",  December 4th, 2021. Other performance opportunities may include Terpsichore in March 12th, 2022 at the Majestic and our Spring Showcase June 17 & 18, 2022 at CHS.
