Encore Dancers is a community dance performance and competition company designed to heighten the performance experience for students at Act Two Studios. Students are encouraged to participate in workshops, conventions, competitions, and community performances to increase their exposure and love of dance. In the spring of 2019 many of these dancers will attend a week long international dance festival in Los Angeles including an opportunity to perform at Disneyland.
As part of our last season, Encore Dancers attended a number national workshops and four competitions as well as numerous National Dance Week performances, and more community performances than can be listed here! The Encore Dancers organization sponsor a biennial Nutcracker performance by the San Diego Ballet, utilizing dancers from throughout the city.
Parents of Act Two Studios performers can help support Encore Dancers in several ways. Most importantly, they can volunteer to work with the parent booster organization in fundraising efforts either as a consumer or a volunteer.
Activities sponsored by the parent support group include assisting with our after recital party, hosting “Pancakes and Pirouettes” gala dance performance in January, providing ice cream at our park shows, and handling flower sales for the recital. The Encore Dancers Parent Association is proud to sponsor the San Diego Ballet Nutcracker, returning to Cheyenne in December 2020. This year they will provide support to Act Two Studios in partnership with The Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker.
If you are interested in in participating as an Encore Dancer volunteer, please contact Jodi Weppner, organization president, through the studio.
