Dance Works 2017


All —

With just over a week before our announced registration deadline, your Dance Works steering committee has been working to resolve an issue with facility scheduling. We want to find the best solution and will know more early this coming week.
For now, please hold on to your registration forms and payments, rather than mailing or bringing them in. We’ll let you know as soon as we can that the event is back on schedule.
Thanks for your patience as we work to create the best possible event for the dance community.

Dancers Invited for Festival of Classes and Performance

It’s becoming a tradition in Berkeley County for dozens of young dance students to gather in early spring at Musselman High for the Dance Works festival. This year’s event—the fourth— will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and 26. Sponsored by the Berkeley Arts Council, with the support of MBC Parks and Recreation, dance instructors will feature their specialties during classes over the two days.

On Sunday afternoon, a gala performance will bring students from area dance schools and companies to the spotlight as parents, friends and the public enjoy classical ballet, contemporary, jazz, hiphop and more.

Registration information is available now

Dance organizations can get all the details by downloading the registration packet. It is provided in ZIP format, and includes information pages, forms for the studio to complete and a Conduct and Release form for students and their parents to sign. A roster of attending students goes on a spreadsheet that we use a lot, so we appreciate receiving it by email as an XLS file.
