Special Events

Practice Rounds – Tuesday, January 15th

Location: Brookfield Studio – 6:45pm

Join us for this once a month event!

Practice Rounds are designed to provide a DanceSport practice in the same format as it is organized during competition events. There are, however, a few fundamental differences: practice rounds are not judged, costuming is replaced with stylish practice-wear, and the all-time goal is to practice your program, instead of putting on a perfect performance. As pro-am dance teams take the floor with other dancers, they have an opportunity to work on their technique, partnership, endurance, stamina, breathing, floor craft, performance and presentation in front of a small audience.

Spectators are welcome free of charge
