2022 Summer Finale

10th Annual Summer Finale | June 10-12, 2022
Nechita Center for the Arts | Orange Lutheran High School

The OCPAA Finale is the ultimate showcase for our dancers and lets them demonstrate to friends and family how much they have learned and grown throughout the year. Performing in the Finale is an award for all of their hardwork. Participation in the Finale is not mandatory. However, once you commit to performing by purchasing a costume you are required to participate in PICTURE DAY, DRESS REHEARSAL and ALL PERFORMANCES YOUR CLASS IS SCHEDULED IN. Please keep in mind that over the next several weeks most dance classes will be spent learning and rehearsing routines for the Finale. Make sure your email is up to date on the portal so you can be sure to receive the many and important communications about the Finale.
