The Beth Fowler Dance Company Presents “The Nutcracker Movie”

Beth Fowler Dance Supporters
The Beth Fowler Dance Company has been presenting the holiday classic, “The Nutcracker” at Dekalb’s Egyptian Theatre for 27 years and at the St. Charles North High School for 8 years.
Obviously this 2020 Nutcracker Holiday Season is a challenge since the Live Theatres are not open.
I am very excited to announce that because of our commitment to this community and our talented youth, we are thinking outside the box to guarantee that the community and our dancers have a safe Nutcracker event!
We are converting our 27th Annual Nutcracker into a “Nutcracker Movie” with an extended storyline, dialogue and green-screen effects that will give both our dancers and our community a unique experience!
The Egyptian Movie Theatre is working very closely with the Health Department to hold a safe and enjoyable event complete with Red Carpet Appearances for our local Movie Stars!
With the additional expenses related to the Movie Producers, Camera Crew and Theatre Rental, we have many Sponsorship and Fund Raising options and would greatly appreciate your support!
Below you will see many different levels of advertising on the big screen before the Nutcracker Movie starts.  We have a built-in audience of all our dance families as well as a large following from the community.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your consideration.

Beth Fowler School of Dance of Genoa and St. Charles

Beth Fowler’s Background- Beth Fowler Dance Company est. 1994

Beth Fowler studied with the Milwaukee Ballet and was a principle dancer with Rockford Dance Company and the Judith Svalander Dance Theatre of Crystal Lake. She established her school of dance in Genoa in 1983 at the age of 15. As her school grew and established its excellent reputation, she developed the Beth Fowler Dance Company in 1994. This pre-professional dance company requires dancers to execute difficult tasks at a professional level in an audition.

Beth Fowler’s Students Accomplishments

She has developed dancers who have danced with professional dance companies, MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew and with the Chicago Bulls Luvabulls. Her students have received scholarships to study with the Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theater, The Milwaukee Ballet and college dance programs.

Performing Opportunities- “The Nutcracker”

The Beth Fowler Dance Company presents annual performances each December of “The Nutcracker.” Children from the Beth Fowler School of Dance perform the children’s roles. All students age 4 and up that wish to perform are accepted into “The Nutcracker” productions. All students age 3 and up have opportunities to perform in the annual Spring/Summer productions. The Beth Fowler School of Dance and Dance Company is unique in that it owns and provides all costumes and props and never charges for extra rehearsals outside of class.

Performing Opportunities- Spring/Summer

The School has a repertoire of alternating Spring/Summer productions. Ballet productions include “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Swan Lake,” etc. Jazz productions include “Grease,” “Fame,” “Dancing Thru The Decades,” etc. Lyrical productions include “West Side Story,” “The Wizard Of Oz,” etc.

Dance School Structure

Beth Fowler teaches at least one class in each level, beginning through professional (ages 3 through adult). For the dancers this creates a consistency from level to level, accomplishes progressive goals and sets a strong foundation. Once the dancers reach advanced levels, they work with Mrs. Fowler and guest teachers, many who are college professors of dance. This is the time for diversity.

Beth Fowler School of Dance Faculty

The dance faculty at the school have excellent backgrounds in dance training, performing and teaching experience. The teachers themselves started their dance training as young children with Beth Fowler and progressed through the school’s programs. This supports the need for consistency in the staff from level to level focusing on continuous progression. Additionally, teachers are chosen for their ability to connect and relate to the typical needs of the students.

Hip Hop Program

Leading the Hip Hop program is Robert Lewis, who recently performed and competed on the popular MTV series America’s Best Dance Crew with the Xtreme Dance Force crew. As a child, Robert trained in ballet and jazz with Beth Fowler.
