Productions for the 2018-2019 Season
JUNE [Jungle Book]
As we continue to promote pre-professional dance education and training,
we try to give our dancers the ability to use their training in the
entertainment industry and beyond. The skills and discipline our dancers learn
in the dance classroom will apply to various venues they may encounter
in their youth and perhaps into adulthood. We want to give our dancers
an encouraging yet challenging environment to stimulate growth
and progression with a good hand & a good heart.

Q & A
Are there classes each week? DO you follow the Volusia County School Schedule?
Classes meet weekly. Preps follows the Volusia County School Schedule. Please check our calendar for more details.
do all classes Particapte in an end of the Recital? What are the costs involved?
Yes! But instead of having a recital, our dancers participate in our June Production that is held in the Historical Athens Theatre in Downtown DeLand. This gives our students the opportunity to experience what it is like to perform in a real theatre, and a little taste of fame. There is no production fee, but there are costumes fees: 1 costume per class. Costumes range $65-$90 per costume. Parents purchase tickets to our Annual June Production through the Athens Theatre (www.athensdeland.com). Dancers will also have the opportunity to take pictures in their costume(s) during Picture Call in May (Exulting Images) and for On-Stage Rehearsal in June (Oxley Photography). We will also have a DVD available.
Not sure what the difference between a recital & a production is? Check out a video clip below of our 2nd Annual Production "Untamed" from Edson Pacheco.
WHat is the difference between the Company & School?
All of our dancers are considered a part of Preps Dance School and participate in one large production in June. Preps Dance Company is our intensive pre-professional track for our School dancers who are interested in becoming professional dancers. Company dancers can dance up to 20 hours a week, participate on average 50 events throughout the season, and will compete 1-4 times a year including a National Competition. Company is a large commitment for the dancer and their family, and is by Director Invite only.
There is a more information about each level with our Schedule.
