Fall Dance-a-thon Fundraiser
Each November, VDA dancers take pledges and dance their hearts out during an hours-long dance-a-thon where older dancers teach the younger dancers choreography in a variety of styles, including modern, ballet and hip hop. The fundraiser lasts well into the night as the younger dancers head home for dinner. It's an Island tradition and a great way to raise scholarship funds.
Dance!Vashon produces our yearly show each spring. VDA families join together, volunteering their time to make our productions some of Vashon's most memorable shows.
Our incredible performances include impressive sets, elaborate costumes and,of course, stunning choreography from our teachers and dancers who train.
Check out our Gallery of shows we have produced over the years, including:
The Wizard of Oz 2019
Snow White 2017
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2016
Mary Poppins 2015
Wizard of Oz 2012
Peter Pan 2011
In 2020, because of the pandemic, we were unable to host a live production, but in 2021 we knew we couldn't go another year without somehow sharing all of the hard work the dancers had put into learning choreography and technique. So we created a less thematic showcase, yet a still-dynamic performance. With social distancing in the audience and mask-wearing for all unvaccinated dancers, we were still able to create a show we were extremely proud of.
We are looking forward to having full sets, lighting and costumes in 2022, with our well-known, professional quality productions.
Do you have a talent to share? Can you sew? Do you make posters or do lighting?
