Theatre/Performance Opportunities



SAFD has a cumulative performance for all dancers in age 5 classes through advanced annually in May at the Tennessee Theatre and have the opportunity to participate in our StARTS for the STAGE musical theatre program that has two in-studio shows per year. Dancers enrolled in Ballet V and above are encouraged to audition for GO! Contemporary Dance Works, a non-profit youth contemporary ballet ensemble that operates out of SAFD's facility.




Directed by Kimberly Heagarty, this is a musical theatre program which provides workshops offered at SAFD that includes an in-studio performance of abbreviated shows such as Annie or Aristocats!  Students ages 8 through 16 are given the opportunity to learn acting, voice and theatre dance while also learning the production aspect of theatre, making their own props and designing their costumes!   Two

productions are offered each year.
