From the Danceworks Studio Student/Parent Handbook:

Students who have missed more than 20% of the session’s classes may not be allowed to participate in the annual showcase as recommended by their instructor. Any student in threat of not meeting this requirement will be notified at least one month before the show. A final decision regarding the student participating in the showcase shall be determined and communicated to the student/parent at least two weeks before the show. It is mandatory that students attend the last three weeks of class leading up to the showcase performance, as well as the dress rehearsal.


Please note that the showcase is a ticketed event and everyone attending must purchase a ticket. Tickets will be available for purchase on this page in late spring. One complimentary ticket to the showcase performance of your choice is provided to showcase volunteers. Interested in volunteering? Check out our volunteer opportunities here.
