Dancers’ Forum: Sat 4/22 @ 8pm:
The Dancers’ Forum is an event where dancers can share in an ‘open mike’ format:
-Work in progress
-Thoughts/concepts on dance
-The creative process
Similar to “Inside the Actor’s Studio”, but instead for dancers, this event is casual, intimate and inspiring. Enjoy presentations by Rebecca, Yuriy & Kris, John & Diane and more. Attendees will get an inside look into dance and its creation while participating in a interactive way.

Ballroom/Latin Dance Rounds & Test Prep
Saturdays 6:30-7:30pm / $18 or punchcard
A “round” is when all the dances in a particular style (Ballroom/Latin) are played one after the next with a 20 second gap in between. The best way to learn your routines and work on your stamina at the same time is to add rounds to your practice routine. You can prepare for your test, work with a partner or use it for part of your practice. Whatever your goals, do not miss it.
For ADC students level 1 or higher / Proper dance shoes required.
Questions call 408-824-0074 / No rounds Sat. 4/22
Broadway Jazz Workshop, Sat. 6/24 @ 7:30pm:
Jazz dance is an American genre of dance which enables a dancer to move to popular and broadway music. It has its own technique and special feel. Join us for a beginning jazz dance workshop which will introduce you to the basics. We’ll cover warm ups, across the floor work, turns and a short combination. This workshop is perfect for getting to know how to dance solo and includes tips on many techniques for improving your dancing!
Jazz shoes or ballet slippers required. $30 per person.
Popsicle Challenge Team Match, Sat. 7/22 @ 1:45pm
OUR BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR
Join us for an all day event of dancing, friendly competition, social events and general merriment, the Popsicle Classic Team Match & Showcase. This event is open to the public. Tickets will be sold beforehand and may become sold out, so please order your tickets early.
What is a “Team Match”?
A Team Match is an intra-studio (inside the studio) competition between four teams. The teams are made up of all levels of students. Students from the teams then compete against each other at their own level, winning points for first, second, third and fourth places. Students are cheered on by their teammates, friends and family, so this event can become loud and crazy! These points are then added up at the end of the match and the team with the most points wins. A scholarship prize of $1000, custom skirts for each lady and a new pair of shoes for each man is then awarded to the winning team.
Performances by couples, our ballet classes and the professionals are also featured throughout the day.
This event is open to the public. Please feel free to join us for the entire day. Food and drink will be provided and there are in-and-out privileges for ticket holders. General admission is $20. Proper footwear is required for all those who will be dancing.
Admission: $20 per person
