LOCAL PERFORMANCE SERVICES

Downstage Dance Company consists of a group of talented young dancers from ages 6-18 years old. Our students travel to hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes, and local events to give free performances during the holiday season or at any time of your choice. Our shows are no longer then 30 minutes in length and can adapt to your facility. We are available to perform on weekends, or during school breaks. All we require is a clean open space and a room nearby where the girls can change their clothes and costumes. We do the rest! This is a wonderful opportunity to bring music and dance into peoples lives, and a great way for our kids to give back to their community.
