Please note - some classes are filling up and we are creating a waiting list on certain classes. If you are interested, please let us know so we can plan.

DanceWorks will also be excited to be hosting another Fall Family Classic. Interested students wanting key dance/drama roles are asked to contact the studio for private auditions in early September. Auditions will be held during the first week or two in September so we ask auditioners to please sign up over the summer and into that first week of September.


A Hobbit's tale

Fall Family Classic

DanceWorks and Candlewick present their annual Fall Family Classic this November 16 and 17 with a fun adventure in Middle Earth. The production features a story woven together by the Xplor Drama 1 & 2 classes along with a number of our dance classes who weave together an original tale. The production is meant to uniquely intigrate drama and dance disciplines to help bring the story to life on stage.

Auditions for key acting and dancing roles are planned for September 13 and are by appointment only. Please contact Vanessa at the DanceWorks Studio to make an appointment: 204-822-9981.

Proceeds of the production go to the continued refurbishing of the Kenmor Theatre.
