Our annual Spring Concert is the culmination of a year’s worth of study for our students. This is the moment of synthesis, an opportunity for students to share technique and skill sets learned in the studio with family, friends, and community members on a professional stage. Spring Concert is also our biggest fundraiser of the year, which helps us cover operating expenses and allows us to bring quality programming to the community year-round.


date   Friday, April 24 and Saturday, April 25

place  Stuart’s Opera House, Nelsonville, OH


who is involved  Students enrolled in Tech 1B, Tap 1, and Tech 2 through Tech 6. Students will learn choreography for their Spring Concert piece during Winter Semester classes (some class times will be lengthened to incorporate rehearsal times). Performing in the annual Spring Concert is not mandatory, but is highly encouraged. Should a student not wish to participate, please inform the Artistic Director at the beginning of Winter Semester.






Consistency and Class Attendance Year-Round

As Spring Concert is a year-end cumulative event, consistency among classes is important. Fundamentals and technique built over the course of both Fall and Winter Semesters are reflected in choreography, and student confidence is encouraged and strengthened through the mastering of skill sets. Consequently, students are expected to enroll in the Fall Semester classes that they wish to perform in during Spring Concert. Please speak with the Artistic Director if you have any questions or non-adjustable fall conflicts.
