The Dazzler Dance Company
The Dazzler Dance Company has been wowing audiences across the country for over twenty years. The children involved in the company range in ages from 7 to 18 and are selected through an annual audition process. The company provides the dancers with numerous local and national performance opportunities. This experience has been instrumental in the company proudly producing several alumni that are currently performing professionally on Broadway, cruise ships and at Disney World.
Each year the Dazzlers perform at the Illinois Building during the Illinois State Fair and this year they are honored to be the opening act of the Fair! In the past the company has performed at Walt Disney World and Disney Land. They have been invited back to perform several times and have appeared on the stages of the Magic Kingdom in total three times.
They have also performed aboard Carnival Cruise lines MS. Sensation and MS. Fantasy, Norwegian’s MS. Dreamward, Royal Caribbean’s MS. Explorer of the Seas, Celebrity’s MS. Horizon and at the Bermuda Naval Dockyard.
Locally the Company performs at several nursing homes each season, participates in parades for various holidays, and has been know to lend their dancing feet to charity events for organizations such as local food pantries. They have also entertained audiences at the Miss Capitol City and Miss Springfield Pageants in the past years. In addition, each year the company performs in Jan’s Dance Studio’s spring recital at Rochester High School.
In 2014, the Dazzlers became a nationally ranked team. Our Junior group “Diamonds” was ranked 2nd highest scoring number in our region and “White Room”, our Teen group number, was ranked 7th overall!
The Dazzler team returned from traveling to Las Vegas in Summer 2014 to take part in the Dance Awards- an international dance convention and competition. Two of our dancers (Lauren Calvin and Hannah Tharp) were honored to compete against 100 of the world’s best dancers for the title of “Best Dancer”!
The Dazzler Competition Team won several overall titles last year at regional competitions including- 1st Place Overall Senior Solo, 1st Place Overall Mini Solo, 1st Place Overall Junior Small Group, 1st Place Overall Teen Duet/Trio, 1st Place Overall Junior Large Group- just to name a few!
Come see the Dazzler Dance Company performance at the Festival of Trees on Friday 23rd at 1 pm at the Orr Building at the State Fair. This charity event is a holiday favorite with Holiday activities for the entire family.
