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.

Year End Show

Friends and family are welcome to attend Dance Adventure's Year-End Show at Humanities Theatre in Waterloo. All students will perform at each of the exciting and entertaining shows that you won't want to miss!

We’re often asked if there is a way for people to purchase gift cards for dance (e.g., if Grandma wants to help pay for costumes for Christmas). We’ve now added the ability to purchase electronic-gift cards which can be purchased by clicking the button to the left. Gift cards can only be used for studio items (e.g., term fees, costumes), but not for fundraising or comp-team related items.
