CALLING ALL BOYS!!

 “West Side Story” June 9th , 10th, 11th 2023  

Egyptian Theatre

 Beth Fowler School of Dance

On Friday March 24th at the Genoa Studio we are holding a special trial day for all boys ages 4 and up in both the Genoa and St. Charles areas. Any boys interested in possibly performing in our production of “West Side Story” can do so for free!

This Trial Day will be an opportunity for boys to watch a video of what they will be doing, and to learn some of the choreography. The boys can let us know at the end of the evening if they would be interested. We always have many boys interested in performing these “boy friendly” productions.  They will also be taught and trained to stretch as well as learn choreography. In the past high school coaches have noticed a great improvement in these boys after they started this program with us. This program is FREE! Rehearsals are required once per week. Many of the scenes are clever choreographed fight scenes through dance to the dramatic West Side Story music from the motion picture starring Natalie Wood. The story opens with a flashback to when the boys and girls were younger. This opens the opportunity for boys (and girls) of all ages. Please sign up HERE if you are interested in coming to the trial day.

“Wizard of Oz Movie & More” Tickets Available Here!

“Wizard of Oz Movie” Opportunity at Beth Fowler Dance!

New Dance Session Starts March 1st!

Monday, March 1st a new Dance Session of Classes starts at the Beth Fowler School of Dance (BFSD) at both its Genoa and St. Charles Locations.  Classes starting March 1st are open to new students from the ages of 3 and up.  All styles of dance are offered as well as an opportunity to be in a Movie!  Beth Fowler will be working with Movie Producer, Dan Kapper for the 2nd time as plans are set to film “The Wizard of Oz Movie & More!”  New classes start March 1st which will give the dancers 3 months to prepare before filming June 1st through June 6th.  “The Wizard of Oz Movie & More” will have several movie showings on the Egyptian Movie Theatre’s big screen throughout the month of July 2021.  Students are also welcomed to just attend dance classes in-person and/or online.  Movie participation is optional.

Fowler and Kapper collaborated last Fall to convert Fowler’s 27th annual Production of The Nutcracker into “The Nutcracker Movie” which was filmed in early November of 2020.  After movie editing completion, it hit the Egyptian Movie Theatre’s big screen last month.  Dancers received Movie Star treatment with Red Carpet Interviews for all ages (3 and up).  The Beth Fowler Dance Company arrived at their 1st Movie Premiere in a stretch limousine after a joy ride through town, and before stepping onto the Red Carpet at the Theatre to be interviewed.  All Red-Carpet Appearances in the front lobby were lived streamed on the big movie screen that audience members could enjoy from their seats.

It was filmed and shown safely under the Health Department guidelines as The Egyptian Theatre and Beth Fowler worked closely with the Health Department throughout the entire process.  This included filming in small groups over an 8-day period among other safety regulations.  Movie Showings were at less than an 8% capacity rate with staggered entrance and exit schedules in and out of the Theatre.  The Egyptian Movie Theatre and Beth Fowler continue to exceed Health Department guidelines which led this exciting and unique experience to a Zero Covid-19 Case Rate.  After succeeding with a safe and enjoyable Nutcracker Movie, it was decided that BFSD would make a “Wizard of Oz Movie!”

On March 12th, 2020, the Beth Fowler School of Dance had just finished their final dress rehearsal of “The Wizard of Oz” and their flying lessons with Vertigo, a hired rigging company to provide flying effects for the production.  The show was ready for a live audience but just hours before opening night, the show had to be canceled as the start of the COVID-19 pandemic began.  This was devastating for the entire cast as this production was postponed much longer than ever anticipated.  Fowler vowed to come up with a plan, no matter what it took, to guarantee that these dancers would never have the rug pulled out from underneath them ever again.  Hiring a Movie Producer was the answer to see that these young dancers and artists would safely have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that would turn a challenge into a blessing.  We know that this pandemic has been difficult on our young people and we are hoping to bring excitement to as many children as possible as we light their fires again.  We are inviting children ages 3 and over to be apart of this exciting opportunity as we present, “The Wizard of Oz Movie” Take 2!

For more information and registration for the March 1st, 2021 new dance session.  Visit the “Contact Us” page at their website BethFowlerSchoolOfDance.com  Or call the Genoa Office (815) 784-5658, or the St. Charles Office at (630) 945-3344.
