WINTER PERFORMANCE 2021 UPDATE: The Christmas Carol: DEAC Interpretation
Choreography has begun for our 2021 Winter Performance. The Performance date has been updated to SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021 MATINEES. The times are TBA. We have adjusted our date to accommodate our studio size, give more room for social distancing, and the need to possibly have 2 shows. In addition, we had growing concerns over school events that were scheduled for Monday Evening.
2021 Winter Performance Participation
The following classes will be participating:
- Intro to Dance SAT, TUES, THUR
- Pre Dance MON, THURS, TUES
- LEVEL 1 Combo TUES & THURS
- Ballet 2 Secondary
- Ballet 2A
- Ballet 3C
- Ballet 3E

- Hip Hop 1+2 Thurs (7p and 7:30p)
- Hip Hop 3+4
- Lyrical Dance 2A & 2 Secondary
- Contemporary 3C & 3E
- Jazz 6+7
These showcases are casual events structured to give our dancers additional performance experience & highlights what they are learning in class. In addition, this is a great “ice breaker” for our little dancers and new dancers to our school. It provides an opportunity to learn what happens in preparation for a performance, backstage, and while on stage. the dancers become familiar with our venue, where the bathrooms are located, and senior dancers & staff they may not see on a normal occasion.
Costume Selections for DEAC’s 2021 Winter Performance
The Winter Performance is a “Do-It-Yourself” Concept. The goal is for our families to find what they need from their closets as well as creativity. The base for all costumes is a black leotard and tights. DEAC will provide for certain classes: tutus, skirting, bows, hats, jackets, as needed.
Tickets for the winter showcase will begin on MONDAY DECEMBER 6 at 4:30.
Tickets will only be sold to dance families whose accounts are current.
Tickets for the event are $10 each and are not assigned. Please remember the June showcase will have seating selected at the time of purchase.
IF your dancer is NOT participating, please inform the studio VIA email asap! [email protected]
Additional information and details regarding costuming, ticket purchases, event times & breakdown will be announced at the end of October.

DRESS CODE REMINDER
Uniformed dancers allow for a better structured & disciplined classroom. Solid color leotards & tights are required for all classes. Sports bras, bike shorts, dance shorts, or biketards are acceptable for all classes with the exception of ballet. Leg warmers, fitted cover-ups are permitted during the winter months. Any outfit, within reason, is acceptable for tap & hip hop provided it does not interfere with movement and provides adequate coverage. Hair MUST be pulled back for ALL CLASSES. A bun for ballet is a must and other hairstyles such as a ponytail or braids for other classes.
Intro to Dance & Pre Dance: Leather Ballet shoes, Tap Buckle Shoes, Leotard & Tights. Please make sure your dancer’s name is on the outside of their bag and each item has their name or initials inside.\
Ballet: All ballet classes must wear a leotard & tight as well as hair secured in a bun.
LEVEL 2 BALLET AND UP:
When signing your child up for ballet, you are signing them up for lessons in discipline & hard work; With that, comes the ballet dress code. Although it may seem unnecessary to parents or people unfamiliar with the dance world, ballet dress code has been around for centuries.
