Parades

Washougal Lighted Holiday Parade

Experience a high energy, fun, full-costume parade with choreography while representing DDANW in the community!  Please see the drop-down tab below for all the details, including themes, rehearsal days and parade performance details. 

Washougal Lighted Holiday Parade
  • Dec 2024

Costume

  • Each dancer must be lit in order to participate. (Lighted necklaces, headbands, tutus, etc….obviously battery operated w/ small battery packs if you must use battery packs).  Please no glow stick necklaces.  They don’t stay on very well and they leave little rubber pieces lying around in the streets. 
  • Our color palette is white, off-white, light pastels (Snow bunny look). Please do not wear hot pink, flashy bright colors, black etc.   This is helpful so that we can see all the lights and our dancers have a “glow” effect.
  • Hats, scarves, gloves, are all acceptable and also (weather dependent) can make or break a dancer’s experience and comfortability.  
  • Shoes should be black tennis shoes.  (Please no dirty, worn-out shoes.  Remember that this is also a performance and we would like to maintain that a performance that is entertaining as well as pleasing on all accounts). 
  • Hair and Make-up is up to the dancers, but should not be a deterrence from their performance.  Make-up does not need to be full stage make-up. 
 
 

Fundraisers

Fundraisers are offered to Dancers for help in alleviating some of the costs for Accelerated/IDC Performing Arts Education. Utilizing these opportunities to the fullest will significantly decrease costs for specialty events.  Please see the drop-down tab below for details about each fundraiser offered.  Note: Moving Arts Show Photo Shoot and All Winter Show-related events are mandatory for Accelerated and IDC dancers.
