Class Performance Opportunities
Winter Showcase: Enjoy an informal showing of work by all of our classes during the last week of the fall session, right before the holiday break. The students will perform for their parents at the studio in lieu of their regular classes. Refreshments follow! Each student will receive two tickets to the showcase during the last two weeks before the showcase. The 2017 Winter Showcase Week Winter will take place during our last week of classes before Winter Break, Saturday, December 16th through Friday, December 22nd.
Spring Showcase: Our end-of-the-year Spring Showcase, held at the Rouse Theatre, is a wonderful experience for all dancers to share their skills with parents, families and friends. All students from ages 3 to adult are encouraged to participate. A $30 performance fee for the first class, and $10 for each additional class, covers the costs for costume rental and maintainance (a significant savings over the expensive costume purchases required by many studios). Fees are due at registration. Tickets for the performance are $10 general admission, $15 for both shows. Participating students are given a performer’s ticket to watch the half of the show they are not in.
Parent Observation and Bring a Friend Week
Parents are always invited to watch class through our observation windows. In October, we will open our doors to friends who may want to try a dance class as a part of Bring a Friend to Dance Week. During this week, students are invited to bring a friend or two to the studio to try a free dance class.
Fundraising at Kinetics
As a non-profit organization, Kinetics Dance Theatre relies on parents’ and students’ support of our yearly fundraisers, such as the Annual Fund Fall Campaign, ticket sales to our five concerts per year, recital program shout-outs/ads, t-shirt and trophy sales, our holiday basket raffle, flowers at the recital and much more! Monies from these fundraisers help Kinetics pay for theatre rentals, exciting programs and workshops, new costumes, guest teachers and choreographers.
Dance Workshops, Field Trips, and Projects
Watch for notices in our newsletter, on our website and posted around the studio. Each year we offer our students enrichment opportunities, including group tickets to professional dance concerts, fun dance workshops for the whole family, and dance projects for our students.
Kinetics welcomes volunteers! If you would like to help us with specific events, provide general assistance, or share a skill with us, we often need help through the year with performances, workshop events, chaperoning, fundraising, costumes, photography, music, and more. Please let us know!
Don’t forget to ask us about our birthday parties!!! Celebrate your birthday and have a blast dancing with up to 20 of your friends! Each party includes 45 minutes of supervised dance instruction and games with one of our dance instructors and 45 minutes for presents and goodies. Fees: $220 for non-Kinetics families; $200 for Kinetics families. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a date. Contact the studio for more information (410) 480-1686.
