Holiday Break Hours

The holiday season is here and FOCUS is filled with gratitude for all our students!

Please note that FOCUS will be on break from December 22, 2019, through January 5, 2020. Classes will resume on January 6, 2020.

To those joining us for the first time in January, welcome to the FOCUS Family! To those returning in January, we look forward to welcoming you back! Thank you for all your commitment, passion, love for dance, and for making FOCUS your home away from home. It is your presence and positive energy that makes it a special place indeed. We celebrate all of you this season and always, and appreciate your wonderful FOCUS Family team spirit and kindness.

See you in 2020 for more fun and memory-making!

Save the Date June 15-20, 2020

Preparations are in the works, for the Prestigious FOCUS Concert Series “Honors Performance”

Dancers get ready to take a much-deserved Bow!

Season 2019-2020 FOCUS Concert Series Honors Performance will be held at the Irvine Barclay theatre June 15 through June 20, 2020, and presents all FOCUS dancers who completed their season of training! You will witness all the tenacity and hard work these performers put in through the season to earn the honor and prestige of participating in this outstanding Concert Series. Along with the sheer entertainment of our students’ performance, they will showcase their growing confidence, strong and poised athleticism, perseverance, unique individuality and appreciation for teamwork FOCUS instill in them.

It takes quite the courage to walk out and just stand in front of an audience. It takes even more courage and confidence to do that and perform! Our students at FOCUS do just that, all the while expressing appropriate emotions, executing intricate moves, remembering all the choreography, counting steps, stretching ever so much for the effect, and making it look effortless and having fun doing it.

Please join us and celebrate their accomplishments! The performers will be praised and honored and receive a Certificate of Participation for their hard work throughout the season.

We look forward to having you join us as they take their bow.

Capture Memories of Your Dancer in Costume!

Pictures will be taken Monday, June 3, through Saturday, June 8, during regularly scheduled classes at FOCUS. Though purchasing photos, is not required, it is a great opportunity to get the perfect pictures for your family photo albums, and become part of FOCUS history.

We are pleased to announce that we are working again this year with Da Silva Photography. Da Silva Photography will be coming to FOCUS to photograph each dancer during their class, and to give everyone the opportunity to get a professional solo shot, as well as a group photo of their dance in their costume with make-up already applied.

If you are interested in purchasing individual and/or group photos, Da Silva Studios is now offering  an online portal for families to pre-register for the opportunity to have individual and group photos taken without having to choose picture packages before viewing the product. This new opportunity will decrease wait times and give you more flexibility when choosing your photo package. Pre-registration will include a $25 non-refunable deposit.

ALL DANCERS need to attend classes during Photo Week and come in full costume and make-up to take the group photo even if you do not plan to purchase a photo for yourself. More information to come; don’t miss out! Competing Dance pictures will be taken during the same week.
NOTE: The Irvine Barclay Theatre doesn’t allow still photo cameras to be used in the theater. You may take pictures outside and backstage but not in the theater, so Photo Week is your perfect opportunity to get a professional photo to cherish for a lifetime!
