Annual Showtime Production
Annual Showtime Productions are held at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda, Florida the first weekend of June each year.
Florida Dance Company
The Florida Dance Company is a not-for-profit, charitable performing group of young dancers, ages 12 through young adult. Our mission is to spread cultural enrichment and a love for the performing arts throughout Charlotte County and its surrounding areas. We have presented performances in all performing arts styles, as well as lecture demonstrations on the arts to local schools, libraries, civic organizations, and community audiences since 1993. We have organized and run benefit performances to fight Cancer, performed at events such as “For Love of Kids” dinners, and we perform annually in the “Relay for Life”. When our dancers have reached a certain level of technical ability, they are invited to become members of this elite, performing troupe which is pleased to service its community.
Ovations Competition Team
The Ovations Competition Team is an elite competition team which consists of members of all ages who have mastered the ability to execute technically challenging steps and combinations. These dancers participate in regional and national dance competitions. At Florida Dance Workshop the emphasis is placed on learning and performing, therefore, involvement in competitions is held to a healthy minimum. You can read more about our approach to competition at the bottom of our policies & philosophy page.
