Performance Series
Dance 101's spectacular student performance showcase
"I'd Rather Be Dancing!" Season 19 is coming July 14th - 16th, 2023! 

Our performance pieces are beautifully staged and choreographed for all dance levels. This is NOT a recital!
This is a dance showcase (and an experience of a lifetime!) with concert grade lighting and an audience of up to 160 people each night!

The line-up of participating choreographers for the Summer Show will be announced on Friday April 14th with registration opening at our IRBD Summer Kickoff Party on Friday April 21st!
No audition required however previous attendance in the corresponding class is STRONGLY suggested prior to registration. One piece per person! Registration will close once a piece hits its capacity or Sunday April 30th, whichever happens first. Once the line-up is live, it will be listed here.
Weekly rehearsals will be throughout the week at dance 101, times will be posted next to each corresponding piece. Each rehearsal is 90 minutes long and will start the week of May 1st!

ADDITIONAL REHEARSALS (in addition to the rehearsal period and covered under Performance Series tuition):
We've added a separate Show Rehearsal this Season between Dress Rehearsal and Tech Rehearsal! This will give performers the opportunity to rehearse in show order AND in dress prior to opening night, as well as to watch the show!
-Dress rehearsal Friday June 30th at 6:30pm
-Show Rehearsal Friday July 7th at 6:30pm
-Tech rehearsal Friday July 14th at 3pm

-Friday July 14th at 8pm
-Saturday July 15th at 5pm (Matinee show for dance 101 students only)
-Saturday July 15th at 8pm
-Sunday July 16th at 6pm 

The cost of the Performance Series is $275 for active dance 101 students and $325 for non-active dance 101 students. Active is defined as having a current class card or membership at time of registration. Active student status will be verfied.
This cost will include 1 dance piece of your choice, eight 90 minute rehearsals (in addition to a dress, show and tech rehearsal), 4 performances, and 2 tickets to the show of your choosing (to be determined at dress rehearsal). Costumes and additional tickets are not included. 
*NEW ADD-ON: a commemorative IRBD show t-shirt to be delivered by show weekend (price TBD)!

Each piece will be capped at 8-12 dancers (will depend on style). Again do not sign up for a class/instructor that you are not familiar with as this will affect your experience and those around you. Once a piece is full there's no switching to another piece. No refunds will be issued for missed rehearsals or dropouts - so doublecheck the dates and make sure you can commit! One piece per person. 
WAIT LISTS: If the piece you're interested in is full, please add yourself to the waitlist!
