One of our favorite traditions at Prairie School of Dance is our annual Christmas show and this year we had two (both Rec and Performing Arts dancers had their own shows!) Two times the fun, two times the dancers, two times the guests in attendance and two times the JOY shared this wondrous Christmas season. Our theme was “JOY!” and earlier this month, we asked our dancers, “What brings you joy?” We were thrilled with their thoughtful responses and Program Director Sarah Steichen created a beautiful montage to capture it all (that video will be uploaded to Facebook yet this week).
Dancers of all ages auditioned to take part in Mrs. Quie’s “Special Parts”, learning Christmas songs to lead and Scripture to share during the Recreational Show. Their rendition of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” was a crowd favorite!
Our fabulous Rec dancers took the stage with a wide range of festive music and costumes.
Backstage, dancers were sharing Christmas spirit!
Our Performing Arts show featured Hip Hop and Musical Theater companies, both new this year.
All six levels of Performing Arts as well as Pre-Performing Arts dancers performed a variety of Sacred, Jazz and Ballet.
Prairie School of Dance was OVERJOYED by the generosity of our families, we collected $1,081 to donate to PROP (People Reaching Out to Other People), a local organization which serves families in financial transition.
We hope you enjoyed these photo highlights we captured Saturday… we are so grateful for each and every one of our beautiful dancers and their families!
Merry Christmas from Director, Sarah Linner Quie and the entire PSOD Teaching Staff!
