January 9 | School of Dance Virtual Student Choreography Showcase | Virtual Showing – FREE
Because we can’t bring the audience to the dance, we’ve decided to take the dance to our audience by hosting this year’s event online. Choreographers must be students of the School of Dance and will be permitted to work on their projects at home or in-studio while following health and safety guidelines.
This virtual event will be shared with fellow dancers, family members, and within our School of Dance community during our Winter Open House Dance Celebration. Spend your holiday enjoying these unique performances. See you there!
