HHPD Company Dancers (Performance)
Due to IHSA rules and regulations, the performance jazz/lyrical will not be competing in any way. They will perform in the recital and possibly other performances that will not violate the IHSA rules.

Performance A - D will still be considered competition classes that will compete at IPDDC competitions.

A performance dancer will be able to take part in the following activities depending on your own schedule and commitment:
Required Performances:
Weekend dance performance in Chicago (approximately cost is $40 per dance per dancer), Midwest Nationals (approximately cost is $46 per dance per dancer plus transportation and lodging). There will also be 3-4 Park District competitions at a cost of approximately $13 each.
Optional Performances: Weekend dance convention in Chicago (approximately cost per dancer is $200), and a performance at Great America (approximately cost per dancer is $35). In the past HHPD dancers have performed at Great America, Disney World, Disneyland, the children’s division of the Joffrey Nutcracker and Dance Chicago.

In order to be on our performance team it is required that you take at least one other class (tap, ballet, lyrical, jazz, hip hop, or technique) with us. You cannot take just performance.
