History of Dance Revelation:
Fourteen years ago, Dance Revelation was founded to create a place for children, teens, and adults to come together to receive quality dance education. Not only did we desire to provide excellent dance instruction, but we wanted to create an environment that was full of love, encouragement, hope, and respect. We have seen alumni graduate and go on to follow their dreams and be successful in their chosen fields. Some alumni have studied and graduated in dance at universities such as Pointe Park University or professional training programs such as NYC Joffrey. Others have gone on to have success in the medical field and business field. Whether your child dreams to be a part of dance for most of their life or they know their training in dance will end after DR, we know that our culture, curriculum, and value system will help launch your child into whatever comes next.
21-22 Season's Concept:
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!
This year's concept focuses on fostering students' growth towards healthy bodies, souls, and minds. As the year has progressed, we have been moving in the direction of peace, love, and joy, creating a positive momentum forward.
Our students have grown in their responses to facing difficult situations, and we've seen positive growth in their character. We've recognized our own struggles and cheered each other on, remaining unified in being vulnerable, authentic, and true to ourselves. We've listened more carefully and watched more closely. We've treasured our time together in this common ground, our safe space, the dance floor.
Together we've become healthier individuals, and we've soared above our highest expectations. We can accomplish great things when we are together, and we are certainly better together!
“I don’t care how hard being together is, nothing is worse than being apart.”
― Josephine Angelini
About Our Annual Performance:
Dance Revelation’s Annual Performance allows our students to present the results of a year’s hard work, dedication, and progress. We invite family, friends, neighbors, teachers, and mentors to join us at our Annual Performance showcasing the talent of our students.
Performing, in general, is a positive experience for all students, helping to build self-esteem, self-confidence, and well-being. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. That onstage experience can result in better school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.
Commitment to the performing is the responsibility of both students and their parents. As part of a professional performance, a lot goes into making our students shine on stage. This includes: rehearsal time and space, theater rental, lighting/sound/stage technicians, staff development, costumes/shoes/accessory selection, ordering, and distribution, stage-managing, ticketing, backstage assisting, and more!
