The WSOTA Dance Companies are by audition only and are highlighted in dance performances throughout the year. We are always looking for new and unique performance opportunities to extend to our Dance Company members. Some of these performances may be a once in a lifetime experience for many of the dancers, leaving them with memories that will last a lifetime. Some examples of featured performances for our Company members include:
The halftime show for the Harlem Globetrottersat the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. WSOTA was the exclusive featured performance during the half time show at this event with thousands of guests in attendance.
Disney Performing Arts, center stage performace at Downtown Disney with VIP access to behind the scenes at Disney. Our dancers were officially Disney Cast Members for the day.
Christmas in Clay County. WSOTA Company dancers are exclusively highlighted throughout this large scale annual event, sponsored by Wehner's School of the Arts, First Baptist Church OP, and the Clay County Community Band. Our dancers have over 30 minutes of spotlighted time on the stage in front of an audience of over 1000 guests. This event features over 285 local performers of all ages and is definitely a highlight of any season!
Orange Park Fall Festival. We have an annual time slot in the Orange Park Fall Festival at Town Hall. This is our first public performace each year and a fun way to introduce our Company dancers to the community.
In addition to the many unique performace opportunities presented to our Dance Company members each season, we also offer in-house workshopsby well known professional dancers from accross the country in various dance styles. Our Company members are also regularly invited to participate in free, professional workshops and masterclasses hosted by our friends and neighbor, Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts.
