The first week of each semester (February, June and October) is Watch Week. Students are encouraged to invite parents, relatives and friends to observe the classes during this week.
One special workshop is scheduled each semester to focus on one area of dance. These workshops may also feature a guest instructor. Students are invited to attend and experience a new area of dance to expand on their interest area.
Dance conventions provide all dance students and teachers the chance to learn a variety of dance techniques taught by professional and famous dance teachers all over the country. This is a wonderful experience and we encourage all dancers to participate at conventions. Conventions are held throughout the year.
Recitals are an excellent opportunity for all students to perform the dance skills and techniques they have learned throughout the year. All classes have the opportunity to perform in our yearly recital. Recitals are held in the summer.
Dance competitions are a great experience for a dancer. Competitions are for the dedicated dancer. The owners/directors audition to determine which routines and students participate in competition. Competition requires mandatory rehearsals, costumes and additional dance classes per week. Any student interested in participating in competitions MUST be enrolled in a ballet class.
Our Dynamite Dancers are our competitive group of dancers, which are auditioned on a yearly basis. This group represents our school at competitions and performs at various events throughout the year.
This group of acrobat students represents our school in the National Acrobat Competition (NAC). Competition for NAC begins in the fall semester with Championships in the winter semester. Any student enrolled in a acrobat class may participate in NAC.
These students are a dynamite group. Our TNT Tumblers consists of an elite tumbling group that are picked by the owners/directors. This group performs in various shows throughout the year including the Comets games!
MELROE'S SCHOOL OF DANCE also performs in community shows, parades, holiday shows and special events throughout the year.
