The Culkin School has performance opportunities throughout the year. The school performs at local schools, assisted living facilities, churches, weddings, embassies, pubs, and have even performed at Wolftrap, Strathmore and The Kennedy Center. Participating in performances is a great way to get more involved in the Culkin community and meet other dancers. Performing helps dancers gain confidence while having fun!
We book many different types of shows. Some clients may request a teaching element as part of the program and others may just want to see younger dancers. Venue types and sizes vary and some shows are relaxed while others require a level of professionalism. More high profile shows are reserved for our championship level dancers, who have more experience performing. We have all types of performance opportunities that are appropriate for all of our dancers. Show information and invitations will go out via the Yahoo! Group and will also be listed on the website. Each show will list the level of dancers invited to participate.
HOW DO I KNOW ABOUT & SIGN UP FOR A PERFORMANCE?

- Once a show is in the SignUpGenius system, an announcement is also posted on our school Yahoo! Group. If your dancer is interested in performing, please make sure to check our Yahoo!

All levels are determined by what material has been mastered to date. Please take note of which level your dancer is so that you know when he/she is eligible to perform. The list of levels is below. You will see an increase in performance opportunities in
February and March, which is St. Patrick’s Day season.
Please note that all dancers, regardless of their level, are welcome to march/dance in the Gaithersburg Parade and Washington, DC St. Patrick’s Day Parades. All your dancer needs for the parades is a black Culkin Sweatshirt, black pants, a white turtle neck and sneakers.
