Fairmount Center for the Arts is excited to announce a unique dance and arts event which will be held at the Mayfield Road Drive-In Theater on Friday, May 21 at 8 pm.  “The Show Goes On” includes pop-up dance performances from the Fairmount Dance Company and art activities, a showing of a film created that showcases Fairmount’s dance and arts community and a showing of the 2016 animated film “Leap.”

“We are thrilled to celebrate and showcase the students at Fairmount Center for the Arts,” shared Jeannie Fleming-Gifford, executive director. “Although the last year has had its challenges, we are so proud of the resilience of this community and excited to showcase our dancers and other students on the big screen at the Mayfield Road Drive-In.” 

Fleming-Gifford also shared gratitude for the sponsors of The Show Goes On which include the following: marquee sponsor: Marshall Carpet One; presenting sponsors: Jan Jones, Kinetico Water Systems, Perky Kettle, Wenger Orthodontics; and associate sponsors: Fit Learning Cleveland and the Graves Family. 

This event serves as an alternative to Fairmount’s traditional dance recital which generally takes place in May.  “The opportunity to record and create this unique program also provides us the chance to showcase the entire Fairmount arts community, not just the dance program,” Fleming-Gifford continued. 

Tickets for the event are on sale at and all are welcome to be part of this unique arts celebration.  The price is $30 per carload or individuals may purchase a parent patron ticket for $75 which includes the opportunity to share one image which will be shown on the screen with a brief message.  Concessions and restrooms will be available at the Mayfield Road Drive-In Theater which is located at 12100 State Route 322 in Chardon.
