Before we dive into the logistics of our end of year concert, read on about the benefits of performing in such an event.
Taking part in a recital or performance helps dancers to overcome shyness, fear, anxiety and stage fright. It gives students a chance to showcase all of their hard work, dedication, and progress from throughout the year. As children experience getting on stage, performing for an audience, and applauded for their efforts, they gain self-confidence that will carry with them in all aspects of school and life.
By working with their fellow dancers on a group performance, dancers learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best result. Teamwork and camaraderie are skills needed in and outside the dance class. Because this is a fundamental skill necessary in all aspects of life, it is never to early to start learning! Concert performances provide a fantastic opportunity for dancers to learn that anything one can do; a group can do better.
Athletes have tournaments and games, and dancers have performances. The weeks/months spent preparing for a concert teaches students how to work towards a goal! Dancers take pride in conquering new steps, and knowing that they’ll be showing their moves off to friends and family gives them the added encouragement to work hard!
Preparing for a recital is a way for dancers to work on retention/memorisation skills, rhythm, technique, and much more. For students who have never performed before, performing in the concert introduces new terminology and also the basics of stage direction.
Danzart Concert memories are lifelong memories. Our end of year performances provides Danzart dancers with the opportunity to share what they have been learning with their friends and families. Costumes become treasured keepsakes, and concert videos become the highlight of the summer holidays. For our families, Danzart's end of year performances are a time to celebrate their dancer’s achievements, and for dancers, the concert instils a passion for the art of dancing and performing.
