On Thursday, June 21, we have a Mini Boot Camp from 6:30-8 p.m. with Ben, who is the dance director many of the Houston studios. The Mini Boot Camp will include rounds of Smooth and Rhythm dance styles.
Relax after the Mini Boot Camp with our Under the Sea Ice Cream Social at 8 p.m. Yum! Enjoy some ice cream, social dancing and demonstrations. This event is open to the public. Dress for the theme and get entered into a raffle for prizes. This will also be a potluck, so bring a favorite dish and get entered in the drawing for free lessons.
We’ve scheduled a doubleheader for Friday, June 22. There’s Dancing under the Stars at the Sugarland Town Square in front of City Hall, where we will be teaching an open class to the public – the theme will be Latin dances – and it’s FREE!
Then, at 9 p.m., we’ve got the Student Social Club. This is a meet-up for students – students and staff pick a place to go out dancing for a fun night out on the town! The group will meet in front of town hall after the Dancing under the Stars event.
There are also a couple of regional dance events of interest coming up.
On Saturday, June 16, there’s HOUSTON’S GOT TALENT at The Improv Houston – this is the “finale” to our Summer Festival Period. The talent show is hosted by FADS Houston and anyone (even if they are not a FADS member) can enter.
The winner will walk away with a $500 cash prize or 10 free private lessons! Space is limited to 20 contestants. Call us for more info!
The other biggie is the Dance Derby on June 29 (Friday) and 30 (Saturday) at the Airport Marriot in Houston. This is a regional competition with food, drinks, and lots of dancing. Friday night will be Team Match stakes and professional competition. Saturday night will be the Gala and the theme is “psychedelic”, so bring out the bright colors, bell bottoms, and peace signs! There will be a professional show to close out the night.
Good times await. We’ll be looking for you.
