The Rhythm Factory is always striving to give performance opportunities to students who want more than just a recreational weekly class. These featured singers, dancers and actors are able to showcase their talents for various local and regional events throughout the year through Rhythmic Youth, a performance-based team here at TRF. Some of our students have been seen and heard on the Carson Center stage as many as 3 times in one week! TRF is honored to have been a part of some very noteworthy events such as:
The Lion's Club Telethon of Stars
Stomp Towards a Cure
BBQ on the River
The Great Russian Nutcracker
Relay for Life
Dancing With Our Stars
The Harlem Globetrotters halftime entertainment
Lowertown Arts & Music Festival
Patti's 1880's Settlement's Christmas Festival of Lights
Live on the River
WPSD/Paducah Sun Christmas Social
Mid-South Youth Talent
Anyone 8 years of age and over has the opportunity to be a Rhythmic Youth Performer, and all are encouraged to attend our "LEGEND-ary" camp this July as well as given the chance to audition for 3 to 5 different performances that TRF is a part of each year.
REWiND: a youth variety spectacular is a TRF-exclusive variety show put on every winter to raise money for the TRF Scholarship Fund, Inc. and other non-profit charities. We proudly partner and share the stage with Allen Music to bring 2 hours of nonstop live music, dancing and skits from the 1940's through today! All students in REWiND play a lead role in this unique, high-energy production!
Select Rhythmic Youth students will also attend one competition and/or one convention each year.
Rhythmic Youth is not only a team that encourages discipline and hard work in each child, but it is where tons of fun is had and valuable friendships are made by all! It is truly a special part of TRF.
