Shows and Events

Holiday Showcase

Our annual Holiday Showcase is a treat for friends and family. There will be raffle prizes, a yummy bake sale table and tons of dances that will put everyone the holiday spirit.

The Nutcracker Tea

Each year our ballet students work together to put on a production of the Nutcracker in the form of a tea. This is their opportunity to learn how to put on a production from start to finish - including set design, tickets, event management, stage management and baking (you need treats for a tea!). This is an exciting project that Dance Adventure has done since opening in 1999. It is also a wonderful afternoon of dance and delicious goodies!

Benefits & Community Performances

Each year our dancers are asked to perform at a variety of local shows and benefits. Please watch for signs at the studio for more information.
