Dynamic Dance Ararat has been hard at work rehearsing for their upcoming performances on Friday December 3 and Saturday December 4.
The theme for the concert is 'Art In Motion', with routines inspired by artwork.
Ararat's Dynamic Dance Studio principal Laura Cameron said the students were "really excited" to get back on the stage.
"Especially after all of the COVID-19 lockdowns, we didn't expect this would be happening," she said.
"Hopefully it is going to be really wonderful."

Mrs Cameron said the dancers had been working really hard throughout the whole year in preparation for the shows.
"Over 70 dancers will hit the stage to perform in styles including Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop," she said.
"They are very excited to be back at the Town Hall venue to perform to a live audience this year.
"Although we created a performance last year, COVID restrictions meant it was filmed without an audience.
"The dancers have been working hard to get their stamina and flexibility back and remember all of their routines for next weekend."
Mrs Cameron said she wouldn't have been able to prepare her dancers for the concerts without her fellow teachers.
"I would like to say a big thank-you to studio manager and teacher Rachel Koenig," she said.
"She has gone above and beyond this year while following lockdown requirements.
"Rachel has spent almost half the year teaching zoom from her living room, but has supported the dancers to still excel in all their routines.
"Teachers Charlotte Hamilton and Ella Bedggood have done exceptionally well choreographing and creating some amazing pieces for the students to perform.
"Our assistant teachers Jac Grayling, Alicia Linsley, Imy Pinniger, Jenae Marr, Emma Lavery and Holly Allgood have also been such a big help and support throughout the year.
"We look forward to finishing 2021 with a bang, and commencing 2022 with even more dance fun."

On Monday October 29 Dynamic Dance will also be presenting their exam students with their results and awards at the Town Hall.
"Unfortunately the last two years have provided limited opportunities to perform live at competitions and eisteddfods, so this will be a wonderful opportunity for them to hit the stage again," Mrs Cameron said.
"Solo and duo artists showcasing their talents will follow the exam presentations.
This event is free to attend, however people attending must reserve a seat on trybooking to assist with numbers."
Tickets for the performances will go on sale on try booking on Monday November 29.
