CHOREOGRAPHY – Dancers in all classes will be starting holiday dance combinations beginning in November. Holiday dance combinations have been a part of our class repertoire for years. All dancers take part in learning the choreography whether or not they choose to be involved in the Holiday Showcase. Please note: Dancers who choose not to participate in the Holiday Showcase are not exempt from November and December classes! We spend a very limited amount of time on holiday choreography.

STAGING REHEARSALS – In early December, after dancers have learned their holiday dance combinations in November, we put dancers together from all different classes during our group staging rehearsals at the studio. Group staging rehearsals are scheduled outside of the dancers’ regular class times and are held at various times on the dates listed below:

  • SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2nd – Afternoon through early evening
  • SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3rd – After 11:00 a.m.
  • SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9th – Afternoon through early evening
  • SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10th – After 11:00 a.m.

The rehearsal schedule for Saturday & Sunday, December 2nd & 3rd will be available before Saturday, November 18th. The rehearsal schedule for Saturday & Sunday, December 9th & 10th will be available on Monday, December 4th.

COSTUMING – Costuming for the Holiday Showcase is simple! We do not charge a specific costume fee, as each dance number will have a different style of costume. Costume cost is minimal and for some groups, no cost at all! Next week you will receive a costuming list attached to your next Holiday Showcase note.

ALL Young Dance Academy dancers will be receiving Holiday Showcase updates via email leading up to our Holiday Showcase performances on Saturday, December 16th. Holiday Showcase information will be available in hard copy upon request only. Information will be emailed and available on both our website and on the Young Dance Academy app!

We are so excited to begin the holiday season with you! Sign up to perform in our 10th annual Holiday Showcase TODAY!
