With 41 years of developing dance opportunities for dancers, Michele’s Dance Academy is proud to provide a program designed for dancers with diverse interests such as jazz, tap, singing and acting with a vehicle to perform locally. Many times we are asked to perform for local businesses, organizations or civic groups only to have to disappoint them because we typically stage only large ballets. As a smaller and more versatile performance group, Michele’s Showstoppers will be able to accommodate their wishes and at the same time, give your children the opportunity to shine!
Michele’s Showstoppers is a “musical theatre performance” class for dancers ages 9-13. It will meet Tuesdays from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The class is designed to teach and rehearse routines. In order to participate in the Showstoppers Class, students must be enrolled in a musical theatre class and at least two other classes (ballet, jazz or tap). ALL Showstoppers will perform in the year-end recital. Not all Showstoppers will be in all the dances, but each will be given an opportunity to perform in those routines which best suit their talents. We consider the Showstoppers a preparation for the Las Cruces Chamber Ballet, and therefore, the same rules that apply to the LCCB will apply to the Showstoppers. Attendance at all classes and rehearsals is very important!
Showstoppers musical theatre performance class will be an additional $15.00/month added to your existing tuition. We will have one general “performance costume” that we will add props to as needed. We understand children are very expensive and we will do our best to keep costs as low as possible when choosing costume requirements. Michele’s Dance Academy will provide all studio time, choreography and music. The goal is to have each Showstopper performing as often as possible and we will do everything to assist in this area.
Mrs. Laura has a Theatre Degree with an emphasis in acting from California State University, San Bernardino, where she specialized in musical theatre. All activities will also be under the supervision of Mr. Kevin.
The audition for Michele’s Showstoppers has been set for September 10, 2019 (Tuesday) at 5:00 p.m. The audition fee is $15, which will be placed into the Showstopper account to help defer future group costs. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask Mrs. Laura at the Academy at 527-1893, or by email at email@example.com We hope to see you there!
