Routine Feedback Sessions!
Register a solo, duo, or trio to receive direct feedback from our esteemed master teachers & turn your routine up a notch for competition season! The showcase will take place in the main ballroom immediately following the meet and greet at the conclusion of the convention. Dancers will perform their routine for our master teachers and will receive verbal critiques that will be recorded and provided to studio directors. Dancers will also get the opportunity to speak one on one with the master teachers and receive live feedback on the spot. This is a great opportunity for dancers to receive feedback from a professional panel before the start of the competitive season. No awards will be presented. The showcase focuses on the opportunity to perform and working to improve your routine! Costumes can be worn but are not required. Routines must be registered and paid for at least 20 days prior to the event. This will be a closed showcase and is only open to registered dancers, their parents, and their teachers. This is strictly a performance opportunity and not a competition.
