By mid-February, we are all ready for a vacation to someplace tropical!  Find some relief with TDS during our Hawaiian Tropics Spirit Week.  


Dancers are encouraged to wear Hawaiian/beach/summer themed clothes to classes this week, as long they can still dance in their choice of outfits and all possibly distracting accessories can be removed if need be.


We will be using Hawaiian beach themed music in class and will learn a hula dance or two!

 Inclement Weather Class Cancellations
Class cancellations due to inclement weather will always be posted on our Facebook page and at the top of the TDS website.  Families are also notified via email.  Class cancellations typically follow Oak Park District 97 school closures, but we may decide to cancel classes on Sundays or if evening weather conditions deem necessary, even when school is in session. Many of our students and teachers travel long distances to attend class, and we try to take weather and commute conditions into consideration.  Be sure to check class status before leaving home in the case of inclement weather.  We want to keep everyone safe!

This year we will be holding four separate shows - a Friday night "Big Show," Saturday matinee "Red Show" and "Blue Show," and a Saturday evening "Company Showcase."  


The "Company Showcase" includes our complete repertoire from our award winning youth ensembles' competition season.  This show highlights our most polished routines and is the perfect opportunity for our younger dancers to check out our competition teams in action.  Tickets to this show are sold at reduced rates, so bring everyone you know!


The Friday evening recital, or "Big Show," will be a stellar show comprised of our intermediate and advanced level classes and professional guest artists.


The Saturday matinee recitals, the "Red Show" and "Blue Show," feature our beginning level dancers and select company routines in order to provide a shorter, more comfortable recital experience for our little ones and their families.  Your dancer's class will only perform in one of the two matinee recitals.


Recital packets confirming classes' assigned show, dress rehearsal schedule, photo, video, and ticket sales information will be handed out in class in the coming weeks.  Please confirm which show your dancer is participating in by checking your recital packet prior to purchasing tickets.  


Tickets go on pre-sale to recital volunteers Sunday, April 13.  

Tickets go on sale to the public Sunday, April 20.
