DAS Harvest Sale

Prepare yourself for our first ever DAS HARVEST SALE coming on Sunday October 1 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm! We LOVE autumn here at Dance Alive Studios, and we have a fun day planned to celebrate! This student-run event is organized and managed by our very own DAS members, and proceeds of this sale will go towards supporting our dancers in covering their training and performance expenses. We are also thrilled to welcome outside vendors and volunteers who want to be a part of the magic. So far we have a handful of activities planned, but more will be added as we get closer to the event:


FARMER’S MARKET – Purchase fresh produce and pumpkins in plenty of time for Thanksgiving and Halloween

WHIMSICAL WARES – Shop locally made arts & crafts items to get you in the mood for spooky season!

HOUSEPLANT BUY & SELL – Sell a plant, buy a plant! We take donations or plants on consignment if you want to drop something off, and then browse to find the perfect replacement

You can expect to see some group pieces that were performed in our June Show DANCING FREE, as well as some solo and duet works from our one-of-a-kind Path to Performance program. We are also introducing Works in Progress as an opportunity for our dancers to perform pieces that aren’t quite finished so they can gain audience feedback to help inform the creative process! This event is an interactive, informative experience where audience members are invited to ask questions and give feedback during the show. Join us for a pleasant evening visiting with the performers, sharing in their process, and checking out our registration options for the Fall! Read more for event details and ticket sales:

Ballet Exam Demonstration

We are proud to announce our first ever Ballet Exam Demonstration! Our ballet exam students have been working hard this year to learn and perfect their exam work from the Royal Academy of Dance vocational syllabi! Admission to this event is by donation, and all proceeds will go directly to the dancers to help offset their cost of training. It is very time-consuming and expensive to train in RAD exam work, including the cost of lessons, exam applications, and necessary equipment (like bodysuits and pointe shoes!). Your attendance and donation will go a long way to help support dancers in our community who want to study this beautiful artform in more depth.

The Royal Academy of Dance is an international organization that holds standardized exams all over the world. Some of our dancers are performing their exam with the RAD and some have chosen to learn the work for the purposes of self-study and personal achievement. This demonstration is an opportunity for those performing their exam to get some audience exposure, and for those not performing their exam to still have a milestone and a celebration for completing their training! Please see below for more details on schedule and event registration:
