Student group travel cannot be any easier than a dance performance trip to Branson, Missouri. Snuggled right in the heart of the Ozarks, Branson is a beautiful destination with amazing opportunities to play, learn and just have a great time. We have created an amazing itinerary for your dance group to take advantage of every minute of their visit. Your group will have the opportunity to take part in clinics with professionals from the Branson Entertainment Scene as well as perform prior to your show of choice to a packed audience in one of over 40 professional theatres. On certain dates you will have the opportunity to showcase your group’s talents in a day of competition with adjudication and awards provided for top performances. Your group will be entertained by Branson’s finest shows, enjoy student favorite attractions and restaurants and have plenty of time for fun, so you will leave with plenty of memories of your time in Branson.
Arrive in Branson and meet your Kaleidoscope Adventures tour director. Your professional tour director will be with you throughout your visit to guide and assist you in any way. Check-in at the Branson Towers hotel and then head to dinner at the Grand Country Buffet. The first night you will be able to choose your favorite Branson show to get a taste of the caliber of talent found in this area. When you return to the hotel, you will be greeted by an Ice Cream Social welcome reception held at the bottom of the grand staircase. And, you are just getting started!
After waking from your comfortable night’s rest at the Branson Towers, you will join your group for a Deluxe Continental Breakfast. You will then head to the theatre for a Dance Clinic where you will learn choreography from one of the top Dance shows in Branson, such as #1 Hits of the 60’s, Clay Cooper’s Country Music Express, or Hooray for Hollywood at the Branson Variety Theatre. Your clinic will be facilitated by one of the actual performers in the show. There will also be time to ask plenty of questions and find out just what it takes to become a professional dancer. After the clinic you will have lunch at the Uptown Café, before returning to the theatre where your group will be showcased in a special pre-show performance prior to the show. Following the show you will return to the hotel to freshen up before heading to dinner at the Fall Creek Steakhouse and evening at The Track Family Fun Park. Enjoy classic go-karts for all ages, the high-speed sprint track, laser tag, bumper boats, bumper cars, kids’ rides, and the 100-foot-tall skycoaster. Having fun yet?
Wake up to another delicious breakfast followed by a second Dance Clinic. This dance clinic is designed to fit your group needs. The clinician will provide a full body warm-up, followed by technical training in several specific areas of dance. If your group travels during our competition dates, you will be scheduled throughout the day to perform, receive notes from our talented panel of judges, and celebrate with a closing ceremony where awards will be presented to the top performers. After the award ceremony you will return to the hotel prior to a mouthwatering dinner at McFarlain’s Family Restaurant and a visit to the RFD-Theatre where you will experience The Haygoods. This talented group of 7 brothers and 1 sister is the REAL DEAL! The Haygoods bring the house down night after night with incredibly tight harmonies, innovative, energetic choreography, and amazing performances on over 20 different instruments!
After an amazing three days of clinics, performances and competition, today is the day to let your hair down and have a little more fun in Branson. After breakfast and hotel check-out you will experience the city like you never have as you Ride the Ducks. This tour will take you through Branson and into the Ozarks before splashing down in Table Rock Lake. You may even have the chance to drive a duck. Lunch is at Mel’s Hard Luck Diner, a Branson favorite famous for its singing wait staff. After lunch your group will head home with a lifetime of memories from their trip to Branson.
There is so much more to see and do in Branson. We are happy to extend your trip as long as you would like and work with your group to customize a trip that fits your needs. If you are not traveling during our competition dates we are happy to make arrangements for multiple performance opportunities.
