Variety Show

The Belle Aire Variety Show is a longstanding Belle Aire tradition and is a great way for our students to showcase their talents in front of their families and peers! All Belle Aire students are welcome to participate, whether in a solo or group act.

Does your student love to sing, dance, tumble, play instruments, perform magic, demonstrate martial arts skills, recite poetry or tell hilarious jokes? Now is the time to get creative and put those performing arts talents to action!

We cannot wait to cheer on all of our talented Bulldogs!

  • Please sign up for only one act per student to allow everyone an opportunity to perform. (NOT including the 6th grade closing act).
  • All music to be used must be vetted by the Committee who hold the final decision on whether appropriate – more details and deadlines to come.

  • Participants must act respectful while using the venue space and clean up all trash and belongings after the rehearsal/show.

We plan to hold a mandatory dress rehearsal at Herrick on Wednesday, May 17th from 4:30-6:30pm so the students can practice and view the stage and space for their performances prior to the big night. Students in kindergarten through 2nd grade will perform first in the line up with the show to end with any 6th graders who wish to perform in their traditional finale.

There is no cost to sign up and we hope to have some opportunities to raise money at the event by providing small items for sale and purchase of “good luck/encouragement” ads in the program to be printed for the show. More details to come on this soon.
