Our Gala is a showcase where performers dance in front of our faculty as we cheer them on! The emphasis is about encouraging the love of performance not trophies and placement. The reward for performing is an invitation to our red carpet and faculty Q&A.



As a performer in our Gala you are invited to walk our red carpet and pose with our faculty so we can wish you MERDE. We are celebrating you as a dancer, studio owner and choreographer. Studio's who are performing will get a call time to walk our carpet.



Only performers are invited to attend our close door Q&A. Giving dancers the opportunity to connect with our faculty, ask questions ranging from how to break into the industry, collegiate opportunities, etc! In leu of an awards ceremony we give students an investment in their future.
