Performance Series

Dance 101’s spectacular student performance showcase
“I’d Rather Be Dancing!” Season 22 hits the stage November 15-17th, 2024!

Our performance pieces are beautifully staged and choreographed for all dance levels. This is NOT a recital! This is a dance showcase with concert grade sound and lighting production, presented in a nightclub/theater style setting.  Each performance typically sells out to a supportive and enthusiastic audience. The energy is explosive – come be a part of the experience!

General information about the Performance Series at dance 101!

  • Registration opens one month prior to the first rehearsal.
  • Rehearsals are 8 weeks plus 1 Dress Rehearsal and 1 Show Rehearsal.
  • No audition required. However, we do require that you commit to having this experience and prioritize attending rehearsals.
  • Show Choreographers are teachers on faculty at dance 101.
  • We strongly suggest you become familiar with the Choreographer’s work prior to signing up. This means: take their classes! Learn their style and taste in music.
  • During registration week, show choreographers will teach a segment of their show choreography in their classes. This gives you the opportunity to be doubly sure of your commitment… because there are no refunds!
  • Registration will close once a piece hits its capacity or by the first rehearsal, whichever happens first.

PRO TIP: Make sure you’ve opted into our weekly newsletter (The 101) to be the most informed regarding piece availability as well as studio happenings. Never miss a beat!

The cost of the Performance Series is $295 for active dance 101 students and $355 for non-active dance 101 students.

No refunds if you register incorrectly.

This cost will include 1 dance piece of your choice, eight 90 minute rehearsals* (in addition to dress, show and tech rehearsals), 4 performances, and 2 tickets to the show of your choosing (to be determined at dress rehearsal). Costumes and additional tickets are not included.


*Rehearsal Etiquette:

  • Plan to arrive 15 minutes early so you can warm up and be ready to maximize every minute of your rehearsal.
  • Expect to be given practice homework every week!
  • Do your homework. Very important! Rehearsals are not for reviewing, they are for progressing.
  • For maximum stage time, attend all rehearsals. You can not be inserted into a formation if you are absent on the day it was set.
  • Respect the creative process and decisions your choreographer makes. This is NOT a recital to showcase what you’ve learned. It is an artistic expression of message through movement.. Do not expect a solo (although you might get one if its relevant to the storyline).
  • Come to rehearsals prepared and rested and with intention and gratitude.

You are about to have one of the most amazing experiences of your life! Be all in!
