Jumping into new programs during uncertain times can be daunting. Rest assured that the health and well-being of our VDP dancers and families is always our first priority. This includes lessons and performances.  We are working diligently to keep our dancers safe, learning, active and having fun!  If that is your priority too  – The VDP Performance Teams are the perfect fit!

Our Performance Team members, ages 5-14, are chosen through a 3-day audition process.  Dancers take at least 2 classes each week, including one performance team routine class and one base class; Either a recreational class or a Birchwood Ballet technique class. Also available are optional Performance Team tap, hip hop and jazz technique classes.

Our teams perform 4-6 times each year, including performing for Alex’s Lemonade Stand at the Eden Prairie Center, the Edina Dance Team Invitational, our VDP recital, a Minnesota Lynx or Timberwolves game, at one recreational competition, and several others.  We are actively securing Covid-19 socially distancing safe performances, such as outdoor performances at Senior Centers.

The 2020-21 Audition Workshop will take place on August 17-19, with auditions on August 19th.  Dancers may take the workshop online via Zoom or socially distanced in the studio.  Audition will be in studio on August 19, during the last 30 minutes of each class.
