The professional dance division students perform in two public productions each year. In December, Holiday Dance features favorite highlights from the Nutcracker ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s majestic score.
The second major production, Dance of Spring, is presented in early June and showcases the many genres of dance that students have studied over the past year, including ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, hip hop and more. In addition, Dance of Spring Showcase features highlights from such classic ballets as Giselle, Paquita, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, and has recently presented works displaying the Bournonville method of ballet as taught at QBSC by master instructor Henning Albrechtsen.
