FDS 2020 end of the year Outdoor Concert
“What Life Should Be” based on the poem by Pat A. Fleming
Saturday, December 19th at 12:30pm
*Please note that this performance will be held outside this year.*
As we reflect on the year of 2020, we can't help but feel grateful for the opportunity to continue dancing together, in whatever capacity. Yes, it has been quite a year with many challenges and obstacles; however, we want to celebrate that through everything, we are still able to come together and dance, even if we look a little different with masks this year!
This end of the year concert will be held outside at our new facility at 2500 Old Middlefield Way. Like any other Fantasy Dance Studio production, we will be putting on a "one of a kind" and unique show but renting and building a stage for our students to perform outside, maintaining a safe distance apart. We have greatly appreciated all of the support and patience our families have shown as we navigate this unique year, but are thrilled to showcase our students' hard work. We will also be coordinating ways to have an audience as well (also taking serious precautions and considerations due to COVID-19).
In-Person Dancers - What to Expect:
On the day of the performance, all dancers will be required to have their temperature taken before exiting their vehicles and answer the standard questions asked before coming into class.
On the day of the performance, masks will be required to be worn by any student 6 years of age or older at all times. Please note that uniform masks or face shields may potentially be required during their dance on stage, but more information will be released when confirmed.
Dancers must stay with their class at all times as well as maintain 6 feet apart as marked on the ground. This will also be practiced during the weeks of rehearsals. Dancers will be prohibited from mingling with other classes as this time to maintain the stable groups.
Virtual Dancers - What to Expect:
If any dancers who have been participating in classes over zoom want to participate in person for the concert, dancers MUST attend the two weeks of rehearsal before the concert in person.
For dancers that wish to participate virtually, please note that we will be doing test runs and our absolute best with given circumstances to provide the best quality for students to perform virtually. At this time, we may have a tv screen placed somewhere on stage that the student will be displayed on. Students will connect through zoom like with their classes to perform in real-time with their classmates.
Costumes will either be sent or delivered to the student, and they will be required to have stage makeup and hair ready for their performance.
Dancers may choose a space in or outside of their house to perform. If you and your family are having difficulty in finding a space, please reach out to us to discuss individually.
Attendance Members - What to Expect:
All audience members will have their temperatures taken upon arrival and standard COVID-19 questions asked before taking their seats.
All audience members (6 years and older) will be required to wear a mask for the performance's entirety.
Families will purchase tickets per household and sit with a family that lives within their own household. For example, if you have 4 family members from the same household attending, 4 tickets will be purchased. 4 chairs in one group will be set up for your family and will be at least 6 feet away from the next household.
Tickets will not be handed out in paper form this year and will be delivered through email.
Please note that this performance will be our way of showing appreciation and love for all of our students and families that have been with us throughout this time. We will be closely monitoring (and potentially making adjustments) based on the recommendations by the County of Santa Clara and the state of California. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and really can't wait to see our students shine on stage, even if it looks slightly different this year!
Annual Concert Information
At Fantasy Dance Studio, we love to perform!
We feel that performing is such an excellent way for self-confidence and self-esteem to grow!
The students learn the joy of working hard and then receiving a natural and fulfilling reward for their efforts and hard work. There is a beautiful joy, and the natural high that is felt when performing that teaches students appropriate and healthy ways to find joy in life!
We seek out many Community performance opportunities such as festivals,
parades, community events, the Festival of Trees, etc.
We also hold our Winter Show in December and Annual Concert in June.
All students in performing classes are encouraged and expected to participate in the performances. The students work hard all year long and the performances are the pinnacle point of the season. The classes learn to work together and rely on each other.
Any student who wishes not to be included in the performances must inform the office by January in written format before they begin to learn the dances that will be performed.
All performance fees, costume fees, and tuition must be paid in order to perform.
Tuition needs to be current, up through the date of the performance to participate.

FDS is excited to announce that our Thumbelina - the themed concert will take place in 2021. Although the current public health guidelines may not allow us to have the usual concert experience, we will not let that stop us from putting on an unforgettable show. Our team has decided to keep the theme of Thumbelina but for our 2021 concert. This decision came as specific students were chosen to play these characters and we want to see their magic, light, and talent brought to life on a full production stage with everyone in attendance.
