Step 1: Understand What Showcase Is

Understand What The Showcase Is So That You Feel Comfortable

An event such as the showcase is often a ‘first’ for many families and their young dancer.  Our showcase is a celebration, not a competition. We want everyone feeling comfortable, confident and excited! Dance To EvOLvE has specialized in this age group since 2008. We create a fun, inviting, age-appropriate and non-intimidating showcase day for our dancers and families to remember.

When the performance outfit is delivered in class in May, it will include an informational letter that will explain all the details you need. This includes: outfit care and instructions, hair & make-up tips, safety procedures and show times. 

Tip:  Be flexible and plan sleeping and meal times accordingly so we get the best out of our dancers. (Remember that class parents will bring snacks.)
