Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We're hard at work coordinating costumes, choreographers, and routines. Please visit this link to look at our scheduled dates for this year's Dance Festival season.
If your dancer's school is sold out, please:
1) Ask at the school level to see if any extra tickets are available. Families will purchase tickets and sometimes later find members of their party cannot attend.
2) Attendees with tickets not being used are asked to bring them to the Dance Festival and check them in at the Box Office table in the lobby. Everyone needing tickets is also asked to check in at the Box Office table. Festival staff will be there to match up extra tickets with attendees needing tickets. In most cases, we are able to get auditorium seats for those that want them.
Once Dance Festival Concerts have sold out, we will offer a closed-circuit TV option on location to provide additional viewing space while adhering to fire code regulations. Parents will be ushered into the auditorium to see their dancer's school perform live, and will be ushered back to the closed-circuit TV broadcast location afterwards. There is no charge for this. ALL PARENTS WILL SEE THEIR DANCER(S) PERFORM LIVE.
The AACPS Dance Festivals are hosted in January/February of each year as performance opportunities for elementary though high school students. For all but the middle and high school gala concerts, students arrive after school for stage rehearsal and performances. For the gala concerts, selected Dance Company students take master classes during the academic day and perform in the evening Gala. Festival t-shirt preorders are placed through your student's school.
