TBD: Block of senior solos Friday evening
Chanhassen High School Performing Arts Center
These are one-day events and WILL sell out. We cap the number of entries we will take for each location based on size of the theatre and dressing areas to keep everyone happy and sane.
Select locations may use a Friday evening block of solos to help keep the day event shorter. If you have a dancer with constraints, let us know – our super smart scheduling software will handle it.
Place your RSVP for just $100 (it goes toward your entry fees) and give us an estimated number of entries you’re bringing to save your space and secure a 15% discount.

Working the late shift?
Dance studio life can leave you with weird pockets of time to get stuff done. We get it! While we’re not quite 24/7 we are definitely available ‘after hours’ and respond quickly. Reach out by email, text, or Facebook–whatever works best for you.
