Ever wanted to know how Pride of Cincinnati approaches technique and training with our cast? This season we will offer an incredible way you can watch and follow along!
Join us for “Practice with Pride,” a series of virtual dance classes and equipment warm-ups and training along with the 2021 cast. With the purchase of a “Practice with Pride Package,” you can gain access to eight weeks of the technical portions of our virtual rehearsals. If you can’t commit to all eight weeks, you will be able to purchase individual weeks as well.
“Practice with Pride” is a great way to sharpen your skills this winter and also is perfect for young instructors looking for more insight to help develop your technical program.
“Practice with Pride” sessions will be on the following Sundays: Sun Nov 15 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 3:30 PM (ET) Sun Nov 22 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 3:30 PM (ET) Sun Dec 6 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 2:00 PM (ET) Sun Dec 13 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 2:00 PM (ET) Sun Jan 10 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 1:30 PM (ET) Sun Jan 17 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 1:30 PM (ET) Sun Jan 24 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 1:30 PM (ET) Sun Jan 31 Virtual Rehearsal – 12:00 – Aprox 1:30 PM (ET)
For those who can’t join during the timeframe above, a recording of the rehearsal will be available.
Due to the global health crisis and the current restrictions on “mass gatherings” at indoor facilities in Ohio, the Pride of Cincinnati is proud to announce a brand new member experience. Not only will this season offer an exceptional educational experience for the 2021 cast, but it will also be a crucial element in the 40th Anniversary celebration of Pride of Cincinnati.
Members will participate in a mostly virtual, limited schedule of rehearsal, and two unique performance experiences. Virtual rehearsals, combined with a limited number of in-person interactions designed with safety as the highest priority, will create a season like no other.
Members will become the cast of a unique video project for submission to the recently announced 2021 WGI non-competitive class – “eShowcase”. The seven-time World Championship Pride of Cincinnati creative staff is teaming up with professional videographers and editors to combine member-submitted videos and small group recordings into something exceptional.
The season will culminate with a “never done before” immersive in-person performance “MASKerade: Celebrating 40 years of Pride!” held in early May 2021. This is something you will not want to miss!
THANK YOU! We MORE THAN doubled our Pride! Thanks to alum, fans and supporters like you who gave $8,210 and three generous donors who matched Pride’s initial $5,000 fundraising goal, together we’ve raised $13,210 for Pride.
Though the Double Your Pride fundraising campaign has ended our work has just begun and your continued support is important to Pride. If you missed out on giving through Double Your Pride you can still contribute to Pride’s ultimate goal of raising $100,000 for the 2021 season. Donate HERE!
Pride needs your help to secure critical resources to keep alive its mission of providing a safe haven where youth can collaborate, create, and develop lifelong skills through the performing arts.
