At Pacific DanceArts we value the importance of live performances, as it is a vital part of dance training for every aspiring dance student. Pacific DanceArts holds seasonal performances throughout the year. All students at Pacific DanceArts are invited and encouraged to take part in the school’s annual "Winter Solstice" performance in December and "Solstice Performance," the Year-End performance, in early June each year.
