What a magical week of dance it was at the Barclay Theatre! Thank you to all of our outstanding and supportive audience members for coming out to watch the FOCUS dancers while they shared their hard work, accomplishments, and talents from their season of training, through the art of performance.

Here’s to our coordinators and volunteers for the outstanding backstage help in keeping everything running so smoothly for the dress rehearsals and concerts. Their dedication, organization, and enthusiasm created such a positive atmosphere to work in, and we are so grateful to them for giving so generously of their time, kindness, and TLC!

We are so proud of all our FOCUS dancers and teachers for their true dedication, commitment, teamwork, passion, and love of dance and the arts.
