BDSOPA Fa-La-Lollies Holiday Show!

What better way to celebrate student progress and spread holiday cheer than with a holiday showcase? We've found that our students are eager to get onstage after just a few months in class--and so the Fa-La-Lollies was born. It's a cherished BDSOPA holiday tradition that's fun for the whole family.

Students in eligible classes will prepare a short holiday piece for their friends and family! In an effort to keep participating in this showcase as simple and low-cost as possible, we select costumes using dance basics that you can keep wearing to class after the performances. Families pay one fee that includes 3 tickets, a costume, and a holiday photo! Families will be able to purchase additional tickets. Click below to sign-up for the Fa-La-Lollies this year! (Not sure if your class is participating? Check with your teacher or give us a call!)

BDSOPA Follies: Saturday, June 18th, 2022

The BDSOPA Follies is our annual dance recital! It is a fantastic opportunity for all of our performers to show off their hard work over the school year, and is a highlight of the spring for all who participate and attend. Unless otherwise noted, all classes work to prepare a dance for this recital.

The Follies will take place on Saturday, June 18th at the Haverford School. We will have a dress rehearsal at the Haverford School on Friday, June 17th.

All students must fill out and return our Follies Recital Agreement and Costume Form by Monday, November 1st. You can find this form by clicking below or stop by the office to pick up a copy. Parents are responsible for measuring their child for costumes. Payment for costumes is due along with the Costume Form. You may pay for costumes this year with cash, check, or credit/debit card!
