Our students take pride in their dedication to dance and we respect the hard work they put into mastering dance steps and routines. We love giving them opportunities to show their accomplishments to the world.
That next opportunity arrives Saturday, Aug. 6, with our annual showcase – Big Stage Ballroom – at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie.
Every year students have the chance to participate in our full onstage production that highlights their talent and perseverance as well as that of our professional dance instructors. Each year our showcase is centered around a chosen theme and the students select their own song, as well as costuming and makeup. Our world-class professional coaches and choreographers craft a dance routine for every student. Practice begins in earnest for both student and professional and leads all the way up to show time.
As our newer students work up to events like Big Stage Ballroom, we provide other ballroom dance occasions, such as Newcomers Mini Match, to allow them to test their developing skills and enjoy the spotlight in a supportive and energetic setting.
Newcomers Mini Match takes place twice a year and it’s always a huge success! The next Mini Match is Friday, Aug. 19 at 7:30 pm at the St. Charles Fred Astaire Dance Studio.
New students from all over the Chicagoland region are encouraged to participate in Mini Match as their first event. It’s a wonderful way to experience the excitement, camaraderie and true team spirit of our dance events alongside other new students from throughout Chicagoland, all in the company of friends, family and staff. Non-participants are encouraged to take part in supporting and cheering on the new dancers. It’s wild and the enthusiasm is contagious! And admission to be a cheerleader is only $5 (cash, at the door).
Join us for these exciting events in August and be inspired!
