Studio Wide Performances: 

PAW holds bi-annual performances: the beloved holiday classic, the Nutcracker, and our school - wide Spring Performance. Students work diligently year - round to prepare for these annual events. PAW Studio Company, our in-house not-for-profit outreach organization brings sections of these performances to elderly care facilities in the area to share the joy we experience dancing with others. 

Performing Arts Workshop not only features its students in these performances, but also allows them the opportunity to create their own work, and perform it onstage with their peers. We do not hold auditions for any rolls. All participants perform in significant parts of our performances. Senior dancers work with hired professional dancers in many of our major solo rolls. 

UPCOMING... 

PAW Students are busy preparing for our annual Spring Performance the 9th and 10th of June 2018 at the Truax Theatre in Oceanside.

Fresh Dances

 

In 2017 we began a very successful series of performances at the San Diego Dance Theatre White Box Theatre in Liberty Station called Fresh Dances. The purpose of this performance series is not only to show diverse and exciting quality work from a group of choreographers and dancers, but to fund artists, to continue to build personal and professional connections among our community, to educate audiences through great dance making and programming, to challenge expectation, and to provide a platform for critical feedback. 

6 - 15 Artists will be chosen to present works 2 - 15 minutes in length on August 24th, 25th, and 26th 2018 based on quality of dancemaking, depth of artistic inquiry, and ability to work well with others. This is a paid opportunity.
