2017 Spring Showcase

Join us at 6:30pm on May 26th for our Spring Showcase recital. This is their chance to show their artistry, commitment, and how much they have improved over the past year. Don't miss this chance to see all of them in their element. Refreshments to follow.


Dance for the music! Support our Summer scholarships.

Each year we send the Primavera Artists to world-renowned intensive summer programs where they meet and perform with some of the most enviable names in music! Last summer they were coached by the concertmasters of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Buffalo Philharmonic, and performed with Sarah Chang and other giants. Come out and dance to raise funds for our summer scholarships. Each dancer will receive a Primavera Fund t-shirt and there will be special prizes for the person who dances the longest and the person who raises the most for us!
