Throughout the year all classes will have the opportunity to perform at Deerfield Park District events such as halftime of the boys/girls basketball games at the Sachs Recreation Center. The last day of each session is also parent watch week where you
can come the last 15 minutes of class to watch the choreography students have learned. We also feature a unique recital at the end of the year. An Energy DJ spins the music and along with fantastic lighting effects, a magical event occurs –and your kids are the stars! in addition to the end of year performances there are many small performances at Deerfield events.
All costumes for performances for our regular dance classes are simple clothing items that your child most-likely already owns so there is no extra costume fees for you!
Students should wear comfortable, body forming clothing. no baggy clothes permitted. Dance shoes or gym shoes recommended. Breakdancers should wear sweats or warm up pants, no shorts.
Our instructors have years of dancing and teaching experience.
