Celebrating 18 Years in the Peoria and Washington Area!
Water Street Dance Company began in downtown Peoria, IL on Water Street. After 8 years of success on Water Street, we relocated to Washington, IL. Although the studio is now called “Just Dance,” our Competitive performers still use the team name “Water Street Dance Company” to honor our 18 years of competition achievement.
The 18th Annual Dance Show will now be Sunday May 23rd at Five Points Washington 3pm. Our staff has been working on ideas for our spring dance show coming up to ensure the safety of our dancers & families, while also putting on a great show!
Due to Five Points Theater being only allowed 25% capacity at this time for COVID restrictions we feel it’s best to divide the show into 2 separate shows. One show will be earlier around noon and a second show early evening around 4pm. Our staff is still working out all of those details at this time, but we would like you to be sure and block off that entire day on your calendars until we announce which show you will be in. There could possibly be a few dancers or families that will need to be in both shows, but most dancers will only need to attend one and your tickets will only be for one show. This is to optimize the amount of people able to be in attendance.
We also wanted to make sure you’re aware each dance family would only be allowed a minimum number of tickets to ensure we stay within capacity and that every family has tickets. We are hoping that the amount will most likely be around 3-4 tickets depending on how many families are in each show.
However, we will be selling additional tickets to a virtual live feed where you will be sent a link via email to go watch the shows on a live Facebook private page. This is something friends and family can do from the comfort of their own homes.
As you know, Covid restrictions and protocols continue to make situations change and we may need to adjust again. The theater capacity could perhaps even change by then but for now we feel that this is our best option to keep our dancers and families safe. At this time we feel dividing the show into 2 smaller and shorter shows is our best option. Please be watching for more details to come throughout the remainder of the dance season.
