We hope you enjoyed you winter break and are ready to jump back in to the second half of our season and to start preparing for SHOWTIME 2021! if you haven’t done so already, mark your calendars for Saturday May 22 to Sunday, May 23, 2021. We will have schedule and venue details for you soon.

We have another show staring our OVATIONS Competition Team in their 2021 Fundraising Showcase, SUNDAY January 24th, 2021 at the North Port High School Performing Arts Center (6400 Price Blvd). The show starts at 6:00pm. Tickets can be purchased online at  www.FloridaDanceWorkshop.com (click “Event Tickets” on the main menu).  This is a great event that helps our competition team get ready for the upcoming season, while raising money to help decrease the cost of competitions for the families. **Masks and social distancing guidelines are in place for the event**
