Productions for the 2019-2020 Season
JUNE [Dem’ Yankees]
promoting pre-professional PERFORMANCE education
in an environment that inspires creativity always. We teach skills that stimulate confidence, growth, and curiosity, while also instilling discipline and professionalism. We strive for excellence, but create a place where it is ok to fall because that is when learning happens. All the while, remembering that all it takes for a new combination is 5, 6, 7, 8. giving our dancers the ability to use their training in the entertainment industry and beyond.
What you need to know!?!
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.
WHat people Say?
“This is my daughters 3rd year and I could not be more pleased with everything about Preps! Teachers have always treated her with true compassion and provided structure. This has grown a true respect in my daughter for each teacher. Her love for dance has grown each year and to see her and all the other students do such a fantastic job on their production makes me realize I made the right choice several years ago. Keep up the amazing work Lyndsay and thank you for pouring yourself into my daughter and others.”
“Confidence, perseverance, discipline, and leadership all qualities taught, modeled and embodied by Preps Dance School and Company. Having a child attend from a young age and watch not only her dance skills grow but her personal ones as well, we have the owner Miss Lyndsay and every staff member / volunteer / dancer to thank for this. Through the multiple community performances, competitions and breathtaking productions this dance school and company teaches elements beyond dance...!”
“Simply the best.....coming from a grandmother whose mother was a ballerina dancing at the Hamburg German Staatsoper!”
“You run a first class operation from top to bottom and all your merits and accomplishments are certainly well deserved. I couldn’t be happier that you and your talented kids…”
“We enjoyed ourselves at [black] studio but there’s nothing like Preps!!”
