Production Based Studio
Come Be A Part of Our Story!
IDA is a production and performance based studio. Each Spring our entire studio participates in a fun Broadway-style production! Our productions create meaningful stage opportunities for each dancer to show off their talents and share their passion for such a beautiful art form with all their family and friends. This time brings a feeling of accomplishment that boosts self-confidence, self-esteem and even relationships as we support one another.
We pride our studio on having productions that are enjoyable for the entire family. This is done by creating an uplifting and beautiful atmosphere with backdrops and costumes, choreographing well thought out numbers that highlight each dancer and that uses tasteful, age-appropriate music, and professionally narrations with a unique and purposeful storyline that all ages can relate to. This recipe, plus our dancers’ powerful and motivating love of dance, has our audience members leaving with a smile on their face every time.
Productions in the past have included: Tinker-Bell’s Tale of Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, Where the Wild Things Are, The Little Match Girl, 12 Dancing Princesses, Ariel’s Adventures, Dancing Through Africa, Rewrite The Stars, and our upcoming 2020 Production of “Cinderella: Have Courage and Be Kind”.
Dance Dress Code
We strive to have a clean, all black, uniformed look in all of our dance classes. As a matter of etiquette and to demonstrate respect for the art of dance, the instructor and each other we ask all students to adhere to our dress code. Students are required to have appropriate attire by the second week of class. Please see our “Classes” section for the specific attire requirement for each class.
Dancers ages 10+ interested in additional performing opportunities in the production can audition for our Character Cast for the Spring Production! Auditions are held in the Winter for the Spring Production Character Cast. Dancers who plan on auditioning for a Character Cast part must enroll in a specified number of classes as well as register for the Performing Technique class. Performing Technique is a year long course designed to enhance stage presence, facial expressions, and all-around performance quality. All Character Cast rehearsals will take place during this class. Character Cast dancers will receive one-on-one instruction and feedback as they work closely with other cast members and staff to create a dynamic and artistic production experience!
IDA Performing Companies
IDA Performing Company is for dancers who want additional performance, workshop, competition, and choreography opportunities. The purpose of our IDA Performing Companies is to give our dancers as many opportunities as possible to perform outside of the regular studio classes. This will help dancers grow technically, gain the invaluable lessons of good sportsmanship, friendships, team unity, and instill a deeper love for dance. Our companies are performance-focused and provide our dancers with additional workshops, masterclasses and performances throughout the season. Being a member of our companies is a great experience that will help you to become a more well rounded dancer by growing your talents and technique!
