Florida Dance Workshop presents: SHOWTIME 2019

Hi everyone!  Wow this year is flying by!  Showtime ‘19 is just around the corner!  Attendance is so important now as well as at home practice for your Showtime routines and variations! Most of the Showtime costumes have been given out, please be sure to store in a safe place, and check that you have all accessories.  We need your help for Showtime 2019! If you would like to be a part of the committee, please sign up here: https://floridadanceworkshop.wufoo.com/forms/r1inqtcu1axeide/ . We still need volunteers to help with props, front of house & the Kinderdance room, click the link above for more information.  We couldn’t put on a show of our caliber without the help of our wonderful committee.  Thank you!

It’s that time of year! We are ready to do group photos of each class this year for the Showtime program! Individual pictures should also be taken in your class timeslot as the photographer will not be at the dress rehearsal as in previous years. Please be sure that you have all of your shoes & tights in the correct colors. Pictures will be taken at Nickolsons Portrait Studio at 983 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, FL 33953.  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your time slot “ready to go.” Pictures will be taken in showtime costumes with full stage makeup and hair! Please check the schedule posted in the dance studio for your class time!

We would like to remind everyone to please do your part in keeping the studio neat & clean.  Dispose of garbage, papers & food.  Be sure to wear cover ups going to & from the building, please respect the studio dress code!  Thank you!    Check the website and or check with teachers to be sure you have the right color shoes & tights for Showtime.  We will begin taking pictures for our program booklet, so please be sure to dress appropriately for all classes!
