The June Recital
Each year the students focus their skills to perform in the June Recital. The recital typically takes place in a fully equipped local theater with lighting, sound, costumes, and makeup. Students perform before an enthusiastic audience of extended family and friends.
Step-by-step the choreography comes together to produce each memorable number and make best use of everyone's talent and training. Everyone sparkles.
Moscow Ballet is looking for local ballet students to perform in children’s roles!
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is coming to Saratoga School of Dance each season and they look for local ballet students to perform alongside the professionals. Youths (ages 6 to 18) are invited to audition to be Party Children, Small Mice, Snowflakes, Russian Snow Maidens and more roles through Moscow Ballet’s community engagement “Dance with Us” program.

Each year during National Dance Week, many of our students dance in a public performance produced by the sjDANCEco Festival. Typically the festival is produced at a large, public venue like Santana Row shopping center, Eastridge, etc. Our dance teams are always crowd pleasers. Here is one of the dance teams backstage ready to go on.
The Saratoga School of Dance has three competition teams: The Mini, The Petites, and The Senior/Legacy team.
A Lyrical Winning Performance
Performing In The Community
We are always on the lookout for the chance for our students to perform in the community, which offers valuable stage experience, builds teamwork and confidence, and is fun, fun, fun. No one is required to perform. Here is a picture of two of our dancers on-stage at a Christmas in the Park performance.
During a normal summer (mid-June to the end of July) unencumbered by Covid-19, The Saratoga School of Dance offer 8 to 13 summer camps. The camps have different themes. For example, Dance and Art, Princess Dance Camp, Pamper Me Princess Camp, Glam Girls Camp, and others. For the summer of 2020 we are exploring the possibility of virtual camps.

At the moment, our dance instruction is also via Zoom, which is working quite well. We very much look forward to returning to in-person interaction and to providing a variety of summer/school-break camps.
"Dance develops mental and physical focus. The skills learned through dance enhance many other life skills—college, employment, imagination, health, interpersonal relations, and much more. As my students grow in confidence and self-esteem, I know they will carry that with them wherever they go. Those who study dance, at whatever level, simply walk taller throughout their lives." - Miss Valerie
