With our shows being sold out every year it continues to be the beloved Christmas production children and adults alike look forward to attending.

Studio 4 Dance Theater was a dream of Artistic Director Tammie Lee that came to fruition in 2010. After performing the first Petite Version of The Nutcracker in 2008 the company was formed, but it was not until 2010 that it became established as a non-profit dance company. Studio 4 Dance Theater is the resident company of Studio 4 School of Dance.

Studio 4 Dance Theater produces a Spring Showcase which features works choreographed by Mrs. Lee that have included Alice’s Adventures, Peter and the Wolf, Sleeping Beauty’s Wedding, Pictures at an Exhibition, Carnival of Animals and many more.

Studio 4 Dance Theater also produces a student showcase. This production highlights performances in jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary and hip hop. Many of our junior and senior dancers choreograph for this showcase and we provide our senior dancers with the opportunity to help in directing, graphic design for posters and programs, budgeting and much more.

Studio 4 Dance Theater and Studio 4 School of Dance are involved with our community, performing in Murphy’s Irish Days Parade, Children’s Frog Jump Parade, Miss Calaveras Pageant, Angels Camp Christmas Parade, Murphy’s Open House & Christmas Parade and many other functions throughout the year.

Our commitment to our community also includes scholarships.

The Studio 4 Dance Theater Scholarship is awarded to one senior at the Bret Harte Scholarship Night and at the Miss Calaveras Pageant. We also hold auditions the second week of May for dancers and artists in our community. We give up to four scholarships at this audition for any serious artists that would like to attend a summer intensive.

Our mission at Studio 4 Dance Theater:
To educate children and adults in the performing arts through public performance in all genres of dance and performance art and to carry on other educational activities associated with this mission.

Our vision at Studio 4 Dance Theater:
To have a space where children and adults can come and create, express themselves through dance, imagine and fulfill dreams, build self-esteem and develop meaningful friendships that will last a lifetime.
11/15/2019 - Calaveras Football Thanks the Seniors Event Tomorrow Night
Valley Springs, CA...Calaveras Football came to an abrupt end on Wednesday and assuming some folks around the county might be free Friday night due to that, stop by Brew’gers this Friday night to congratulate the 2019 Calaveras Football Team on a hard fought season. All players, coaches, family, students, alumni and general public who have supported us since the beginning we hope to see you there. Please help share this as it’s short notice of course. Thank you again for your continued support.


From Calaveras High School....

"Due to an unfortunate clerical error, the 2019 Calaveras Football season has come to an end. Unknowing to coaches and administrators in the Calaveras Football Organization an ineligible player played in the closing minutes of our first round playoff game this past Friday night. Therefore, Calaveras has been forced by the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section to forfeit the aforementioned contest ultimately ending the 2019 Football season for Calaveras Football.

First and foremost, we sincerely apologize to the the Calaveras Senior Football Players for this tragic mistake. As Football coaches we will be able to coach under the lights again, but for those seniors, they may never be under the bright lights again. Due to a minor infraction, these student athletes received the harshest punishment imaginable. It’s a ruling that truly does not match the infraction committed. Most of you seniors will never play this game again and we are truly sorry it ended this way.

Secondly, we would like to apologize to the parents, supporters and alumni of Calaveras Football. You’re unwavering support throughout the season for our players and coaches leaves us forever grateful. The moments experienced this season by these young men will be memories they carry with them for life. Thank you for the time and effort you put forth this season we are truly blessed as a coaching staff to have such a supportive community.

To close, the Calaveras Football Coaching Staff will do everything in its power to ensure something like this never happens again. Although we disagree with the results of this decision, we understand the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section’s stance in this matter. However, the error of a few must not infringe on a student athletes opportunity to pursue and achieve academic and athletic excellence.

Thank you to everyone involved in the Calaveras Football Program and the Calaveras Football Community for your continued support."
