April 2020 Dance News: Showtime Updates & More!

Hello dancers and families!!

We can’t tell you how much we miss you all and like everyone, we look so forward to get back to our normal lives! We understand everybody has had so many adjustments to make during this time, and dance is no different! We LOVE seeing the majority of you on ZOOM each week, and thankful to have technology to keep us engaged! It’s so important to stay in shape, but also have some sense of normalcy keeping dance as an outlet during these times.

Showtime 2020 Updates

We know everyone is just as anxious as we are to get working on Showtime 2020, and we are doing just that! We are EXCITED to announce that we have secured a NEW DATE!!! Due to lack of rehearsal time, and the possibility of facilities still being closed, we are fortunate enough to have been able to reserve JULY 31-AUG 1 for SHOWTIME 2020 “EMERGE”!!! This will be in lieu of our regular summer classes, as we will stick to our normal schedule for June and July. After Showtime, we will take a break to adjust to getting back to school.

Tickets for the show will go on sale soon, we are just waiting to see what social distancing guidelines may be needed.

We understand some may have summer vacations plans, and if they are still allowed to happen, of course you can still partake, and ensure your spot in Showtime! We will send out our “back on the dance floor” schedule as soon as we are able to get back in the studio. (The schedule will basically remain the same as the previous, with a few adjustments for Ovations group rehearsals, which may change times slightly).

Showtime 2020 Committee Sign Up

It’s time to sign up for the Showtime Committee. Tickets will be on sale as well! We couldn’t put on a show of our caliber without the help of our amazing committee! That you so much, please visit: https://floridadanceworkshop.wufoo.com/forms/r1inqtcu1axeide/
