Performance Opportunity Benefits

Rising Star and Spotlight dancers are part of a special program that fosters

teamwork, confidence, and expression. In the Rising Star and Spotlight

program, just like sports, your weekly classes are your practice and the

performances are the game. Rising Stars learn to work and bond as a team.

By rehearsing and performing together, dancers learn the value of

cooperation and how to be a supportive team player. These dancers

increase self-esteem with additional performance opportunities by

showcasing their hard work and celebrating their progress on stage.

Rising Star and Spotlight Dancers will grow and thrive within a structured

environment that engages students in fun and creative ways to bring out

the best within each and every dancer.

Rehearsals

Students will learn their initial Choreography in their weekly ballet classes starting in January.

Students will have additional rehearsals for spacing and cleaning purposes based on their ballet level on Saturdays from February - March. This is to help all Rising Star and Spotlight Dancers get to know each other and work as a team outside of their normal class times.

 

  • January: Begin Practicing Choreography in Class

  • February: Saturday Rehearsals

  • March: Saturday Rehearsals

  • April-May 1st: Competitions

  • May 2nd: Season Ends

 

*Please note that the performance team will not perform their dance in the June recital. This gives them Saturdays off during the months of May and June.

Performance Requirements

  • Competition Showcase at Secrest Auditorium. This acts as a practice run for competitions.

  • Rising Star and Spotlight Dancers will attend 3 local dance competitions at Secrest Auditorium in April.

    • If your student is unable to commit to a performance opportunity, written notice and approval are required by December 18th. We will begin choreographing dances in December over break for the students to begin in class in January. We will use any known absences to adjust choreography and plan accordingly.

  • Consistent class attendance fosters confidence in each student and a strong sense of community in our performing groups. We ask that all Rising Star and Spotlight Students maintain good attendance in class and rehearsal so they feel confident and prepared to perform.

    • Parents will be provided notice if a student is falling behind on choreography due to absences. If a student is under prepared to perform due to frequent absences, they may be asked to withhold from an upcoming performance.

Performance Calendar

The Performance Team is a 3 month season. Students practice on Saturdays during February and March and have performance and competition opportunities in April.
