It is with great pleasure that I announce that I will be taking over the duties of director for Flashdance. My mother Marlene will slowly transition herself out and plan her retirement. I have been part of this competition since its inception in 1999 and have never missed one event.
I have made changes that will benefit all participants, studio owners, and parents and family. We have daily raffles, Overall Cash awards for top studio, Flashdance Cup Award for highest scoring solo/duo/trio and for groups, lines/ext lines. We have also hired a professional MC that makes each award session fun, exciting and rewarding for all.
Flashdance 2016 was another amazing year with incredibly talented dancers and over $110,000 in cash and prizes awarded. We want to thank the dancers, teachers, studio owners, and parents who continue to attend and support our dance competitions year after year, it is all of you that have made this possible, and we truly appreciate it and I hope that you will continue your support and join me at one of our venues for 2017.
Each year our mission is to provide a dance experience that is unique, fun, stress-free, and rewarding, where everyone who attends leaves with memories to last a lifetime.
As we approach our 19th season, we are hard at work to ensure that we continue to present a competition where dancers of all ages can display their talent in a fair, positive, and uplifting environment. We are committed to providing an atmosphere that allows the dancers to improve their stage presence and showmanship, boost their self-confidence, and expose them to new choreography keeping the creation of art alive and flourishing.
Thanks again to all the studios who participated in 2016 for making it a year to remember and I hope that you will once again be a part of the Flashdance experience in our 2017 season and support me as the new owner and director. I invite you to join me and help to create more memories as we share in the celebration that is DANCE!
Don't miss out, register early.
