Our first Montana recital at the old Whitefish Middle School Auditorium. Our talented dancers were so excited to perform in their first recital. The audience and families loved our ACRO and Jazz dancers.
Our second showed showcased a huge improvement in all of the dancers. Lauren Beach and Britney Groves were our graduating Seniors and they performed a jazz duo to L-O-V-E. The Dad's Dance was King Tut and did not disappoint with them dressed in togas and having too much fun.
Our third show was in Kalispell at the high school as the Wf Performing arts Center was being constructed. Our show was upbeat fast fun and used a huge variety of music. The dancers were so experienced and fun to watch. Crowd favorites were Get up on Ya Feet, Rollercoaster, Little Red Riding Hood, Cha Cha Heels, All That Jazz, I Believe, Everybody Hurts, ABC, the Dad's Dance was It's Raining Men and they were so good umbrellas and all. Mandy McFadden senior solo was One Moment More.
Our fourth show was music and routines taking you across the USA. We had such talented dancers this show was one of my favorites to choreograph. The jazz routines were high energy, the clogging routines were huge and rocked the stage, our littles were adorable and the acro routines had so many talented tumblers. Every song and dance were so good. Our Dad's took it to the next level with their epic Elvis Lives Dance. They made the front page of the paper the morning after the show.
Our fifth show we had smaller classes of really dedicated dancers and it showed. Our dancers took the audience around the world with dance styles and music. some favorites were Welcome to the Jungle, Copperhead Road, The Can Can Spectacular, Tokyo Drift, Kung Fu Fighting, Latin Mix and our Dancin Dads performed a Cowboy Mix that was great.
Our sixth show we used the Columbia Falls High Theater and Carley Jo was our graduating Senior and performed Holding Out for a Hero. We had a lot of older dancers at this show and they performed beautifully in all of their genres.
2013 was the first show for Bigfork DANCE to join us and was all about celebrating, parties, and of course the CIRCUS. Shay Darner performed a beautiful acro dance routine to I Hope You Think of Me. Crowd favorites include Mickey Mouse's Birthday Party, Don't Stop the Party, and all of our Circus Dances, the little Oopsy the Wonder clowns, Afro Circus, Send in the Clowns, and Entry of the Gladiators. The Dads this year joined their dancers in an adorable routine to My Boyfriend's Back.
This show was our 15th year in business and we did a tribute show looking back to favorite songs from our previous recitals with new choreography. Some favorite dances were Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Follow the Leader, Will You Be There, Sweet Home Mashup, Royals, and Our Wild Things. We showed clips from the previous shows pres-how/intermtermission/post-shows and the Dads Elvis Dance. Our alumni dancers wrote small statements about their experience dancing with us and we shared some of them on
This show was absolutely amazing with so many show stopping songs and dances. I had never choreographed dances to so many inspiring Broadway Hits. Grease Live, Lion King, Shrek, Hair Spray, Follies, Seussical, Peter Pan, Matilda, The Waitress, Wicked, Beautiful, Sweet Charity, Something Rotten, and Hamilton. The dancers loved it and the audience was entertained so much. This year we started having our brave dads do small pieces of their own daughters dances and it does not disappoint.
Our show in 2019 was everything Powerful...Superheroes, Villians, Zombies+Cheerleaders, Rainbows+Friends, Love and $. Kyra Schiff was our graduating Senior and she performed a beautiful solo to This Song is for You that was written and sung by her cousin. Our dads were amazing performing their Broadway Songs! Everyone was crying and laughing.
