Class by class celebrations make for a unique performance experience

Maranatha Dance was honored to celebrate all that our students have been learning this season with unique, class-by-class celebrations over the weekend. Each student in Levels 1 and under performed with a special celebration with their class for a small group of families. Dance genres in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, and acro were represented.

Unprecedented times called for us to reimagine what our recitals might look like. It was a bit different than our usual 600-seat auditorium shows, but our families were very supportive and enjoyed the more intimate atmosphere and special recognition of each dancer.

Prior to the celebrations, many of our students had learned their dances and continued to practice at home through our Maranatha Connections virtual platform, which we pivoted to in late March when our studio moved to online instruction. Our teachers worked tirelessly to provide choreography through YouTube videos so that each dancer could stay connected.
