Emotions Dance Studio Presents “Create & Inspire” 2017

2nd Annual Dance Showcase

Welcome to the 2017 EDS Dance Showcase Packet! Included in these next few pages is everything you could possibly need to know in order to be fully prepared for our Showcase in May. Please read through this carefully as it is very detailed. If you have any questions please contact Miss Larissa.

Date & Location

For our second year we will be holding our 2017 Dance Showcase at The Abbey (100 S Eola Dr. Orlando, FL 32801) Studio on Sunday May 21, 2017 at 4pm.

Tickets can be purchased with cash or check at the studio or at the door for $20. Sorry no credit cards can be accepted.


Participation in the 2017 Dance Showcase is mandatory. We want our students here at EDS to get the most out of their dance training and we feel performance experience is a crucial part of their education. If you cannot participate in the Dance Showcase this year due to an uncontrollable circumstance please see Miss Larissa.

Tech Rehearsal

Our 2nd annual showcase will be at 4pm on Sunday May 21 at the Abbey. All level 1-4 dancers need to be dropped off (at front main entrance) and checked in (with costume, hair, makeup, tights, and shoes) by 1:30pm. All Dance Babe and Intro classes need to be dropped off (with costume, hair, makeup, tights, and shoes) by 2:30pm. Doors will open at 3:30pm and show will begin at 4pm. There is garage parking as well as street parking. Valet parking is also available for $8. Please plan accordingly for parking.

A reminder that this is a closed tech rehearsal. Parents will be allowed in at 3:30pm when doors open. Please have your dancer come with water and a snack. We will have games, videos, etc to keep them busy backstage.


Video of the dance concert will be available either for download ($20) or via DVD ($30). After the concert, video will be available for download ($25) or via DVD ($35). We encourage you to preorder your video.

There will be no photography and video of any kind during the performance. We will be very strict about this rule as it can be distracting to dancers and violates studio policy. You are more than welcome to take photos after the show with your dancer.

Costumes and Makeup

All costumes will be handed out prior to picture day. We are still waiting on a few items to be shipped. If for some reason they do not arrive by picture day, our photographer will make sure to get group and individual shots at the showcase so we can capture the beauty of your dancer.

Along with your costumes, you will receive a handout with each dancers specific class requirements; colored tights needed, shoes, misc etc. Please make sure you have all necessary tights, shoes (in proper colors). One pair of tights will be given as part of your costume package.

Youtube links to “How to make a Sock Bun” and “Stage Makeup 101” will be coming soon. Please look for these helpful videos in a future email. All dancers will be required to wear their hair in a sock bun for the entire showcase. All dancers will need some form of stage makeup. Dancers in our intro and dance babe classes will just need a little blush, lipstick, and minimal “smoky” eye. Dancers in our level 1-4 classes (except for hip hop) will be required to have full stage makeup (including eyelashes) and hair in a sock bun. Hip Hop classes are not required to have lashes, unless they are in multiple classes.
