Miss Amy (+ guest choreographers) will be choreographing a group finale, which is open to all students who wish to participate, ages 7 and up. We will cap this at 50 performers – so sign up early! Our Finale will be a 50's inspired routine, with multiple styles (jazz, hip hop, tap, contemporary) and will be split into 3 rehearsal groups (see costumes above). The three rehearsal groups will be determined by our director and teachers based on experience level (beginning, intermediate, advanced). The finale number will be the final performance in all 4 shows, prior to final bows.
What are the requirements to be part of Finale?
Dancers participating in Finale are required to be at ALL FOUR shows the weekend of June 24th-25th. Shows are at 12:00pm and 5:00pm on both June 24th and June 25th.
Dancers are also required to participate in weekly rehearsals. We will start rehearsals for Finale in mid-April, with small groups meeting on Friday evenings, and the entire group rehearsing together on Saturday afternoons. We will have rehearsals every week until the week prior to recital (6/18). These are MANDATORY rehearsals so please make sure you consider the time commitment prior to making your decision.

What does it cost to participate?
The total cost to participate is $145. This includes a participation fee of $65/student. The participation fee covers the cost of all Friday and Saturday rehearsals (roughly 20+ hours of rehearsal), which will take place every week from April through June. The remaining fee of $80 covers the dancer's costume and a pair of tights.
Is participation in Finale required?
Participation in our Finale number is completely optional! We realize that not every dancer is able to make the time commitment, or financial commitment. However, we highly encourage participation for those dancers interested! It is a great opportunity for our dancers to work with different teachers, and to dance with new groups of dancers! PLUS they get to close out the show!
