Let’s Dance and SHOWTIME Spring Performances

Dance Connection offers “Let’s Dance!” and “SHOWTIME!” performances each spring as an end of the season performance opportunity. Let’s Dance performances are held on the odd years, and SHOWTIME performances are on the even years. The SHOWTIME performances are fully costumed, and the Let’s Dance performances utilize dance wear as costuming. These performances compliment the spring ballet performances. We offer a fully costumed ballet production as our recital on the odd years that include Cinderella, Coppelia, and Sleeping Beauty. The even ballet years include a simple concert utilizing the graded ballet leotards.

There are four performances which include a preschool show, a matinee show for younger elementary age dancers, and two evening performances. Specific performance and costume information is listed in each dancer’s online dance account. Tickets are sold as admission to the performances in advance online through our website a month before the performance date. Tickets are available at the door at a slightly higher rate.

SHOWTIME 2020 Performances

With our theatre performances cancelled, we contracted with HDZ Productions to produce our virtual SHOWTIME and Ballet Concerts last spring. Our competition dancers are familiar with HDZ Productions because they are the company that provides the tech and staging support for the dance competitions and conventions we have attended.

Unfortunately, after spending thousands of dollars on the video editing for our live stream production, the job is not complete. We received the final links of our performances at the end of October to preview before a live stream, and found several problems with each performance. Issues include missing several routines, missing dancers within a routine, routines showing one dancer and the rest hidden behind, music incorrect, and more.

We have not abandoned the process, and will continue to seek a resolution even if it involves hiring another company to fix and finish the job. We thank our families for their patience.

Due to COVID-19, changes may apply to all performances. Please see our policy regarding the DC plan of action for all classes and events.
