2021 Spring Showcase Information / FAQ's

General Information

 

We are so excited for our 4th annual Spring Showcase!

At the end of every dance season we put on a showcase to feature our dancers and everything they have learned throughout the year. This performance gives them a chance to share their talents, new skills and love of dance with friends and family. Nothing is more exciting than getting dressed in a costume and performing a piece that has been crafted just for them, by our choreographers.

Participation in the Spring Showcase is not required, however most dancers choose to participate as it is the exciting culmination to a year of hard work and wonderful moments.

Showcases are a big deal. It’s our end of the year production with lots of things to accomplish and many moving pieces to make it a successful event for your dancer. To make sure everything runs smoothly we ask that you read through ALL the information you receive.
