Special events are organized annually to allow for our dancers to gain new experiences and develop their team spirit while participating in activities outside of the classroom.

Dance A Thon Sleepover (November)
Dancers have the opportunity to collect pledges for our 8-hour dance a thon that is scheduled as a fundraiser to assist dancers with their dance fees.
