Fun Opening Number Ideas and Getting Older Dancers to Participate

I have taught the opening number for my studio’s recital for about six years. When I took over, my studio was already doing auditions to be in the piece. We continued that up until now.

Over the years, I’ve tried doing something different to keep people’s interests. For example, mixing songs together and incorporating Tap and Jazz instead of just tap. These pieces have always tied into the theme of the recital.

In particular, there is waning interest in my advanced dancers. I’m looking for some fresh ideas to help refresh interest and make it an exciting piece!

Any suggestions are welcome!

Thank you!
