Information On Our Newly Formatted Dual Annual 2017
All Studio Dance Concert Dedicated to the Arts!

Our annual Spring Dance Concerts are a culmination of all the hard work put in this year by everyone at Summers Academy of Dance. This is where ALL of our students get the opportunity to perform one dance, choreographed by their Instructor from each of their classes that they take at the studio. This performance is so special and unique to our audience members because they are able to visually see the “progressions” between levels at our studio and the high caliber of education we offer and how truly talented and extraordinary each of our students is.

11. Will I be able to order a DVD of my dancer(s) performance(s)?

Yes. However, there is no individual recording or photography during any performance as it is dangerous for the dancers and creates a major commotion for those trying to enjoy their child’s performance.

12. Will there be flowers or other dance concert memorabilia that we may purchase during the shows?

We are looking into florists so families will have the opportunity to purchase beautiful June blooms for the dancer(s).
