Events

We offer a variety of performance opportunities 

Annual Recital

This is traditionally held on the Saturday following Memorial Day.

Dress Rehearsals take place the week prior to the performance. Dress Rehearsal is mandatory for all Recital students, unless the Studio director has authorized a student to miss it. We currently run two shows – an Early Show featuring our youngest dancers, and a Late Show featuring our older dancers.

Winter Showcase

This November AOD will be hosting a winter showcase with select soloists/dances. Showcase rehearsals will occur Saturdays from September - the performance in November. The show will be approximately 1-1.25 hours long.

Founders Day Parade

In mid-July, the City of Farmington puts on this annual parade and we are invited to participate. We will hold two rehearsals to teach the marching pattern. These generally take place in late June, early July. We try to schedule them for weekday evenings or Saturday. We do not perform dance routines, just a simple marching pattern and all of our dancers are welcome to take part. If the dancer is too young to learn the marching pattern, they can follow behind the group and/or hand out candy down the parade route. There is no costume to be purchased. We generally ask participants to wear their own shorts/pants (which we will specify) and the studio provides a tee shirt of some kind and/or accessories.

Competition Teams

These teams are for more serious dancers and require high levels of commitment to class and other events. Any student interested in competing should review the Competition Team contract (found on the website) to learn the details on competing with AOD. Any dancer is welcome to join a team, as long as they are willing to make the required commitments.
