If you haven’t been up on our Facebook feed lately, let me catch you up… We have our Spring Showcase coming up this Sunday the 15th. What is Spring Showcase? It’s the evening when our students show off the routines they’ve been working on for the past few months. It’s when we all gather to dance, cheer, enjoy a great show, celebrate our students’ accomplishments, and chow down on an amazing dinner at the Ritz Charles. In short, it’s our favorite day of the year!
Stepping up to participate in a showcase can be a scary thing. We get it. We also know there is no better feeling than setting a goal, working towards it, and seeing a dream through to a reality with your peers alongside cheering you on! So what motivates us to get over our fears and get out there and dance a routine? Although simply cutting loose on a dance floor is fun in its own right, performing a showcase piece allows us to tell a story with our dance. We get to pick a song that moves us, we add our personal flavor and expression, and we design a piece that is special because it has meaning to us. We have the opportunity to create a fun and lasting memory. With the practice and repetition it takes to learn a routine, comes fluidity, confidence, comfort, mastery and poise that all dancers covet. And, perhaps of a bit more benefit to ladies than men, is the bonus benefit of having the perfect excuse to buy that cute new pair of dance shoes we’ve been eying…and, of course, the matching dress and earring!
We’re just beyond excited for our Showcase on Sunday and we can’t wait to watch our students shine! We’re so proud of all of them! And p.s., it’s not too late to get your ticket, so call the studio to reserve your spot for what’s sure to be an amazing night! We’ll see you Sunday!
