Let’s Do It
Dance performance is a fun way to advance your dancing skills. Whether you are a social dancer who just wants to look better on the dance floor, or a competitor who wants to add that flair to your dance appearance; dance performances might be for you!
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 February 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.
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 hired buccaneers, known as the Brethren of the Coast, to attack Spanish ships. A fort was built in and the town was never invaded again. The Brethren were given letters of marque and became sanctioned and legal privateers. In time, however less letters were given out and the privateers either found new work, returned home or became pirates. Captain Morgan, a privateer was recalled to England to answer questions about his conduct.
Traditional Ballroom Dance Showcases
Our Fall Showcases are the more traditional ballroom showcases that are typical in ballroom dance studios. You can dance with your instructor (Pro/Am) or with another student (Am/Am). This showcase gives you the most flexibility in choosing your dance and music (obviously we would like to have the greatest variety of dances, so sign up soon!). Typically this is done with your instructor. You also have the most flexibility in costumes. The questionnaire is used to develop your introduction, so please complete and return to the front desk.
Our next fall showcase is 'Take Me To The Show'. The students will bring to life all your Movies and Shows with these exciting dance performances!
