Showcase Participation Fee

The showcase participation fee goes towards costume pieces, a Danceworks t-shirt for your child, and support the cost of production. Participation fees are due no later than March 11th to complete the process of ordering costumes on time.
If you have not paid the showcase fee by March 11th your child may miss out on the opportunity to be part of the Showcase. Please reach out to Amy Brinkman-Sustache before the payment deadline to discuss any concerns or barriers that may impact your ability to pay the showcase fee. Danceworks would like all children to participate regardless of their ability to pay the showcase fee.

 

Pay Participation Fee Here
Once you pay the fee, this will confirm to us that you’re child will be participating. More details regarding the participation form and costume orders will be sent to you in a few weeks.

 

Cost Breakdown:

  • $55 for one dancer in one class
  • $85 for one dancer in two classes or two dancers in one family
  • $115 for three classes.
  • When we decide which class will perform in which show many factors go into that decision. The goals are always to have a show that is not longer than one hour and 20 minutes, to have a variety of dance styles and levels in each show, and to do our best to have children from one family in the same show. It’s not always possible to arrange for a child/children who take different classes to be in the same show. If this applies to you, please know that we will be providing 2 free tickets to those who have to attend two different shows to see their dancers. It will be your responsibility to notify me to reserve those tickets. This does not apply to the higher-level classes who are performing in all three shows or to members of our youth performance company.

FAQs

What classes are invited to perform in the Showcase?

ALL classes, with the exception of the Tiny Dancer class (ages 2.5-3) on Wednesday at 3:30 pm, are invited to perform in the annual showcase. We feel that our Tiny Dancers are just a little too young to be part of this performance opportunity but we hope to see those Dancers in the audience on Showcase day.


Is the Showcase a ticketed event?

Yes, anyone attending the showcase performance will need a ticket. However, dancers in the show do not need a ticket. More info on ticket sales will be coming soon.
