On behalf of the entire Veracity Dance Project Family, we are so honored and excited to begin this inaugural season of VDP on Janesville's West Side! What started as a funny "what if", quickly came into fruition for us in a matter of months. When we finally convinced each other we were setting out on this journey together, we sat down and discussed what our overall vision and intentions were for our studio. We kept coming back to the words "true" and "honest". True technique. Honest training. We wanted to create an establishment that was respected and valued within the community. A sanctuary to express and learn. A place people were confident sending their children because they knew they were receiving a proper dance education. These conversations led us to our name: Veracity. Webster's dictionary defines it as: "conformity to truth or fact; accuracy". Synonyms include: honesty, integrity, credibility - Veracity Dance Project was born. Our logo represents our four core focuses: Artistry, Focus, Performance, Precision.
At VDP, we aren't only creating well rounded young artists, but also great people. And that is important. They may not ever desire to pursue dance professionally and that's ok! They're choosing to dance now though. It is our job to create a structured, nurturing environment while they train their minds, bodies, and souls. The life skills they walk away with (whenever that may be!) from taking dance will help them every day for the rest of their lives. We consider it an honor to be a part of your child's life and take that job very seriously. And if they DO want to pursue dance or theater as a career, we have them covered there too! We will help them every step of the way with our amazing pool of industry professionals throughout the country. From professional performers currently working from Broadway to LA, agents, casting directors, choreographers, college dance team coaches, and competition judges, we'll make sure you're getting the opportunities and feedback they need to be successful in their pursuit.
We are beyond thrilled to get our summer program underway with our Early Childhood Development Program. Registration will be at our Open House on June 11th, 2017 from 1pm-3pm. We are so excited to get started with our littlest artists! Their schedule is now up on the website. Also, mark your calendar for all the new dad's in your life for our Father's Day Babywearing Dance Class! (Family members, please remember to bring your camera/phone for the last 5 minutes. You won't want to miss this performance!) More information is available on our website under "EVENTS". VDP: The Company auditions follow in July for ages 5-18. This elite group of dancers will train and compete together throughout the 2017/2018 season. With Ballet Master Jacob Brooks at the helm of their ballet technique, we are confident in the amazing growth each dancer is going to make this season. They will begin classes the week of July 22nd, 2017, followed by ballet bootie camp with Miss Callie Marik of Chicago's Underground Allegro. They'll finish up their summer session on August 20th with a professional photo shoot with Levi Walker from Las Vegas (Please see "EVENTS" on the website for more details on this AMAZING talent.), followed by the 1st Annual VDP Pig Pickin' BBQ (because we're country and we love it... vegetarian options available)!
Our full curriculum will be up and running in September! Thank you for bearing with us during this start up period. We decided to take the summer and get our feet wet. We want to make sure we are providing the quality of service the community expects and deserves before we dive in head first! In the meantime, ENJOY YOUR SUMMER! Go outside! Try something new! We can't wait to hear all about your adventures in September! We will keep everyone posted on fall registration via facebook, instagram, and the website.
Thank you so much for being a part of our journey and we can't wait to share all that VDP has to offer you! DREAM BIG!
