Youth Showcase A Big Success
For several days prior to the Showcase, we had 28 young dancers from both studios practicing very diligently on their dance routines. They came in groups, duos, trios and soloists. Some tapped, some did jazz, others danced ballroom and some even had vocal numbers. There was a buzz of excitement felt inside both studios all week.
A quick recap - As Saturday evening finally arrived, parents, children and friends began to fill our studio. The kids went upstairs to change into their costumes and prepare for their performances. The audience was treated to a sumptuous pasta dinner while waiting for the show to begin.
Soon it was time, the show started and one by one they came out in spectacular fashion performing their numbers. We were entertained to Jazz, Ballet, Samba, Vocal and Lyrical numbers. Their hours of training & rehearsing were paying off. These young dancers showed a great deal of poise and maturity throughout the entire evening. What a show!
Veronica and Dorothea are very fortunate to have a large group of brilliant young dancers. Veronica rewarded them by presenting each dancer with a souvenir shoe bag and a participation trophy for their performances. Also, as a special Thank You, the dancers were invited to attend a “cast party” the following evening at our studio.
Sunday evening the kids reunited again for the fun filled "cast party". They played games, they danced, ate cotton candy & pizza, and simply spent timing socializing with each other
The Youth Showcase was well attended and is growing in popularity. It is almost as big as our adult Showcases. I hope you can come support these kids the next time we have a Youth Showcase. It really is a good show.
