Join us for our Opening Number Performance!
Each of our Annual Showcase performances always starts off with a special performance and we want YOU to be a part of it! We are celebrating Ohana's fifth year as a studio & all the wonderful things that makes this studio shine: our dancers! All Ohana dancers age 6+ can be part of the routine (I'm talkin' to YOU too, Adult dancers!).

What's an "Opening Number?"
It's how we kick off each show!
The "Opening Number" is the first routine of both of our Showcases. That means, if you're in this routine, you're in EVERY show! We rehearse for approximately 6 weeks prior to the show - these are extra rehearsals on top of your regular classes. But they're special! You get to work with many dancers your age and others whom you may never have met! It will include a variety of styles of dance and dancers of all ages and abilities! You don't want to miss it!
"I want to be a part of it!"
We're so psyched you're joining us! Here is the scoop:
No audition is required, but you MUST pre-register! It is $60 per dancer to participate in the opening number. This covers studio overhead and rehearsal time with the choreographers. This will be an extra commitment on top of your regular weekly classes. It will be SO MUCH FUN!
Dancers will learn their section of the routine both virtually AND in separate rehearsals, and will then be asked to practice at home! We will have all-group rehearsals in June, and you must attend them! If you miss rehearsals and don’t know the routine, you will be unable to perform with the group! :( This policy must be enforced because we will only have a select amount of rehearsals before the show!
Rehearsals will be on the weekends beginning on Saturday, May 8th from 12-4PM. This rehearsal is mandatory for all participants! Any participant that wants to join who has a prior commitment on this date must understand there may be parts they won't be able to participate in due to their absence. The rehearsal schedule will be shared after the first rehearsal. Dancers will be allowed to miss 1 of their scheduled rehearsals only. If you have conflicts & still want to participate, or questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org asap!
