Dear Dance Colleagues,
We are so excited to be hosting the SCDAncing Festival in 2018. The Festival will be held Saturday, March 17th through Sunday, March 18th at The Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville, SC. The South Carolina Dance Association, in conjunction with the dance department of Governor’s School for the Arts, presents the Festival. The two-day Festival will welcome dancers from all over the state ranging from beginner dancers to professionals. Note that all dance studios, companies, and public dance schools are welcome to attend but must be members of SCDA.
The Festival is two days of sharing, learning, performing, and dancing with friends and colleagues from across the state. The Festival will include 2 adjudicated performances, and classes taught by local, state, and nationally recognized teachers.
The Festival also offers a scholarship audition to high school juniors and high school seniors who plan on majoring in dance at an in state institution, as well as current college dance majors. We are super excited to announce Sekou McMiller as our special guest artist, along with other amazing faculty who await to inspire you!
The Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, which is the host site, is located in beautiful downtown Greenville. It is just a short walk from amazing dining, shopping, and cultural experiences.
We strongly encourage registration early; however, onsite registration will also be available. Students will be separated for classes based on age and ability due to safety and liability purposes. If you are interested in performing, please note that choreographic works to be considered should send materials (DVD or Dropbox) by December 1, 2017.
The SCDAncing Festival is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talent of our students and the wonderful dance programs in South Carolina. The Festival is dedicated to promoting and inspiring growth and artistry in all styles of dance in the state of South Carolina. We welcome the challenges of bringing the 2018 SCDAncing Festival to you and look forward to hearing from you soon.
