Performing is a vital element of dance training, therefore performance opportunities are available for all students. We produce two dance concerts a year, one in January and one in July. All students are encouraged to participate and will learn routines in their weekly classes. Performances take place in the Ruth Chapman Performing Arts Center at Eastlake High School.
