As part of our recreational dance curriculum, C2D provides several opportunities for dancers to showcase what they are learning.  For dancers that participate in our school year recreational classes, a fall program will be held in October, a winter program in December, and a Valentine program in February. For dancers that participate in our summer session, a summer program will be held the last week of summer class. These programs allow parents to attend their students’ classes to see their progress and watch them perform.  Programs provide a comfortable and fun way for our dancers to practice performing for others and to grow and build their self-confidence!

Spring Recital

At the end of each school year a spring recital is held at a performing arts center to showcase the C2D Dancers’ hard work and accomplishments. Recital is not required, but all students are encouraged to participate.  Recital costumes are ordered in January and there is a recital fee due in May.  

Chance 2 Dance Special Needs Class 2015-2016 Recital Dance

Special Needs

C2D feels everyone should be able to experience the joy of dance! This program is a great way for children with special needs to get involved in an extracurricular activity while improving motor skills, confidence, and socialization. The “Chance 2 Dance” class is a 30-40 minute class where students learn the basics of movement, rhythm, and the fundamentals of ballet (such as the five feet positions), as well as reinforcing and practicing basic academic skills (letters, numbers, shapes, etc.). Stretching, dancing with props, enjoying music and expressing emotion will be a part of every class.

Give a Chance2Dance!

The mission of Give a Child the Chance 2 Dance is to give an opportunity to community members to not only help support local talent, but to make a child’s dream come true. This program allows sponsors to help dancers with financial need to attend Chance 2 Dance Studio classes and participate in the end of the year dance recital. You can of course contribute any amount or you can opt to donate a semester tuition or a full year tuition (based on the dancer taking one class per week). Every penny goes directly towards current and future dancers’ tuition and dance school fees. Donations may or may not be tax deductible; consult your accountant. Sponsors will have special seating at the end of the year dance recital and will be listed in the recital program. You can donate online, mail your donation to the studio, or drop by the studio to make a donation. If you have any questions about the program please contact C2D by phone or e-mail.

Competition Team

Chance 2 Dance Studio offers multiple programs for dancers interested in performing and competing. We have teams for dancers of all skill levels and commitment levels. Auditions are held in early June.


The C2D Company is a competition group for girls and boys ages 6 to 19. This program is for students that show an exceptional dedication and talent for dance. These dancers are selected through an audition process and extensively train in all areas of dance. Company dancers will grow both technically and stylistically each year with their participation. The C2D Company performs at various competitions and conventions, including a national dance competition.

Apprentice Company

The C2D Apprentice Company is a competition group for boys and girls ages 3 to 19. The Apprentice Company is specifically designed for dancers who desire an overall stronger commitment to dance outside of a recreational program. This is a competition team for dancers at the beginning and intermediate level. The Apprentice Company competes locally two times per season with minimal travel and no national competitions.

Performance Team

The C2D Performance team is a performance group for boys and girls ages 6-19. This talented group of dancers represent C2D out in the community. Their performances are all located in Crawford and Sebastian county and include festivals, parades, pageants, nursing homes, and so much more. This group of dancers is the face of Chance 2 Dance out in the communities that give so much to us!
