Final Bow announces Registration for Season Four

Final Bow Center for Children’s Performing Arts, entering into their fourth year, is pleased to announce our winter season. Dance classes will begin September 5th, and Final Bow Company, our theatre troupe, will begin rehearsals for their Christmas play, A Seussified Christmas Carol on September 7th.

A Seussified Christmas Carol is a whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with—if he ever had his way with the story. Anyone in Grades K-12 may audition. Everyone who auditions will receive a part. Performances are December 1st and 2nd at Memorial Hall.

This September, Final Bow will again be offering dance classes in Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Pre-Ballet, Tap, Jazz/Contemporary, Hip Hop and Tumbling. The dance season runs from the Tuesday after Labor Day until the week of December 11th, ending with an in-studio performance. Hip Hop classes will begin learning the choreography for their very own music video. This year’s Hip Hop 3 and 4 classes have partnered up with Tangle’s Salon. Stay tuned for their video to be released around the end of November.

Co-directors Hillary Holzapfel and Becky Hootman are pleased to announce two new additions to their class schedule this season. Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Final Bow have partnered up to bring the performing arts to adults and children with disabilities and current Final Bow students. Artistic Variations, an integrated class for Final Bow students age 12 and up and adults with disabilities, has already performed twice for July and August’s First Friday events. More events are in the works for this group of talented adults and teens. We are adding this year a children’s version of this called Kendall’s Music Crew. About three years ago, a little girl named Kendall Rogers registered for classes. Kendall was just like all 3 year old little girls; into Hello Kitty, the color purple and sparkle! But there was one difference; Kendall used a wheelchair. Kendall adapted the class to fit her needs and with the help of another student she danced and moved around the stage just like the rest of the girls. This inspired us to include all children in a class, encouraging them to work together. Final Bow was so inspired by Kendall, they named a class after her and Kendall’s Music Crew was born! This class is for any current Final Bow student age 6 and up and children with disabilities up to the age of 18. These classes are free to all students, children and adults, however, class space is limited. Final Bow is looking for sponsors for these programs to help keep the cost low. For information on how to donate or sponsor these groups please call Hillary at 937-459-8078

Final Bow is located at 107 West Main Street, Greenville, Ohio. An Open House and Registration for new and current students will be held August 7th, 8th, and 9th from 4-7 pm at their downtown studio. Richmond’s Uptown Dancewear will be fitting shoes and have leotards and tights for purchase on Tuesday, August 8th from 4-7pm. Cash or check only. Any questions or for additional registration times, please call 937-459-8078.

Final Bow is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Final Bow’s mission is to inspire children through the performing arts to reach their full potential and to be a positive influence in our community. Final Bow has two main stage performances a year, numerous small in-studio performances, and small stage opportunities throughout the year giving the kids many options to experience the performing arts.
