We are re-designing our Holiday Show this season and are excited to return to a stage with a live performance on Saturday, December 4th at Peace University's Kenan Auditorium. Here's a few things you need to know:

  • In years past, everyone in 1st Grade and older classes participated in our Holiday Show. This year, we invite dancers and families to make the choice to perform by participating in one of the Sparkle Squad opportunities listed below. This frees up classes to continue focusing on student technique and growth but still provides a performance opportunity for dancers who want one.

  • PreSchool and Kinder dancers will once again prepare for informal in-studio Holiday Sharings for families. These sharings will take place during one of your regular class times in December. We'll have more details for you soon.

  • The Holiday Show, "The Most PUNderful Time of the Year!," will feature various pieces performed by the Open Arts Performance Company, Senior Student Choreography work, our Sparkle Squad numbers, AND we will also highlight TWO pieces from our Open Talent Night in November (more details on that next week!). PLUS our Middle School and High School Musical Theater students will be hosting a separate musical production, "Emma," earlier in the day. So even if you choose not to perform, save the date to come enjoy a festive and fun day of dance & the arts with us.

  • We will continue to develop performance plans for dancers and monitor local guidelines which may determine how we are able to allow audiences into the theater. We'll have more specific details closer to the performance time.

Remember, if you wish to perform in the Holiday Show, you will need to register for one of the following Sparkle Squad opportunities. Under each Sparkle Squad you will see a list of required rehearsal dates. Please be sure you can commit to every date listed before you register. The Event Fee includes the rehearsal, production, and tech fees, a performance costume*, and (2) two tickets to the show.

You can register for a Sparkle Squad under the Events Section of your Online Account. Having trouble finding it? Just sent us an e-mail to director@openartsnc.com and we will get your dancers registered.
