Servicing dance studios, dance companies, & all other artists looking for alternative performance options in and around New Jersey.
Are you looking for a new (social distancing friendly) option for your show? Recitals, showcases, competitions & other events have been cancelled or transformed as a result of the current pandemic. As a company director, I wanted to explore every new option that would allow my group to continue working. My philosophy tells me never to settle, but to find the most exciting response to any hurdles we're given. That's when I began exploring the idea of a drive-in movie version of our next show!

The "Show Week" Hype
Costumes. Tech rehearsal. Dress rehearsal. Those final runs are almost as exciting as the show itself!
