We offer two types of performance: Theatrical and Showcase. Learn more about these exciting opportunities below.
Broadway style theatrical shows
These original theatrical performances are unique to DanceSportVA in the Hampton Roads area. Theatrical shows normally take place in September and offer a chance for a little acting as we bring a story alive in dance.
Our next show is The Pirates of Port Royal.
PLOT SUMMARY: Port Royal was located in what is now Kingston Harbor in Jamaica. It was founded by the Spanish, though natives had been using the spot long before. Spain continued to hold the town until the English invaded it. Fearful the Spanish would return the acting Governor at the time hired buccaneers, known as the Brethren of the Coast, to attack Spanish ships. A fort was built in harbor and the town was never invaded again. The Brethren were essentially legal privateers. In time, however they were not needed and the privateers either found new work, returned home or became pirates.
As our story opens the privateers have gained a safe haven and the merchants and shop keepers have become very wealthy off of the pirated loot that was flooding into Port Royal. Captain Van der Meer (Martin), the Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica has been charged with protecting Port Royal. Pirates and privateers are no longer needed for the protection of the town- but not all pirates are having it. As the show opens the pirate Calico Pete (Cameron), is in the stocks and chains, awaiting execution by hanging. Calico Pete, contemplates how he got here.
