PERFORMANCES & OPPORTUNITIES

At our studio we know that developing well rounded and versatile dancers means that education and opporutnies must reach beyond our walls.  Here are some ways that we've grown as dancers, developed our performance abilities, and have given back to our community an others in the process. 

MASTER CLASSES, CONVENTIONS & WORKSHOPS

Guest artists make their way to FSAD multiple times a year.  Students have had the ability to take classes in the comfort of their home studio with performers from Royal Carribian Cruse Lines, The New York Theatre Ballet Company, and working successful professionals from New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and even Denmark! 

Our Company members travel annually to Dance Masters of America workshops across Wisconsin and Illinois.  By Aligning ur selves with these organizations, our students have gotten additional advanced education from "So You Think You Can Dance" alumni, Joffrey Ballet company members, American Ballet Theatre company members, Broadway professionals, Radio City Rockettes, and many more! 

Conventions and workshops are amazing opportunities for our dancers to grow with their technique and skills as well as growing together as a team and a family. 

COMMUNITY PERFORMANCES & SERVICE

Many of our additional performances for Junior, Apprentice and Senior companies revolve around our passion to give back to our community.  From holiday performances at local nursing homes in the area to community arts festivals, performing for our community is our way to give back to the same community that loves and supports us. 

Our Senior Jazz Troupe is a select group of dancers that showcases as united community by gathering dancers from all surrounding school systems.  These dancers showcase their talents at high school basketball games throughout the area each spring.

The First Street Academy of Dance is the only local studio with a recital that is professionally produced by Majic Entertainment.  With professional theatrical lighting, sound and production, our audiences are left in awe, and our students get an idea of what working in a professional environment is like!
