The Dance Asylum puts on two productions each year. Each show has a 5 month rehearsal process with a Friday and Saturday of
performances. "The Nutcracker" begins rehearsals in July and performs in November. "Alice in Wonderland" begins practicing in January and performs in June.
Both productions are modified versions which feature not only ballet, but also tap, jazz, contemporary and hip hop. These are not regular
dance classes. We don’t teach technique in these rehearsals. Instead, these programs focus on interpreting music to tell a story and dancing as a
character as opposed to performing in a regular recital or showcase. This is a performance program for students who want to perform in a show.
No previous dance experience is needed, although it is helpful. This is a really fun way for students to experiment in other styles of dance while making new dance friends
and working on really creative show. This program is open to anyone who wishes to participate! It is not necessary to be a Dance Asylum student to take
part in the Nutcracker or Alice in Wonderland Production.
There are parts available for all ages in all styles of dance. Most dancers will be in multiple dance routines and perform as more than one character. Parts are
assigned according to the dancer’s age and styles of dance they may be familiar with. Practices are held at the Dance Asylum. For “Nutcracker” They are
Tuesdays late afternoon/early evening all summer starting in late June, and move to Saturdays in the morning once school starts in September.
For “Alice in Wonderland” They are Fridays after school or Saturday mornings. The performances are at Saugatuck High School Auditorium.
Registration for “The Nutcracker” is open from April to Mid-July. Registration for “Alice in Wonderland” is open December and January.
Tuition for our performance programs is $40 per month for any student, ages 3 to 6.5 (Pre School/Level One) and $68 per month for students ages 7 and up.
(These fees are determined by how many dances your dancer may be dancing in) There is a 10% discount for parents who pay the entire 5 months in full.
There is no registration fee or costume fees for this program. You may be asked to provide your own leotard, dance tights or black pants for performances.
