CIS Dance Fest
Date: Tuesday - March 07, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Location: Front and Centre Academy
Kindly save the date in your school calendars for the 8th annual CIS Dance Fest to be held on Tuesday, March 7, 2016 @ 9:00am-4:00pm.
We are excited to announce the festival will take place at that Front and Centre Academy! http://www.frontandcentredance.com/
Located at 1200 Castlefield Ave the academy has a brand new 11,000 square foot facility including:
- 5 studios
- 3 lunch rooms (complete with microwave, tables, chairs and drinking fountains)
- Change rooms: 1 male and 1 female
- Bathrooms: male, female, handicap
- Parking on premises
Changes for this year:
1) $50 per student (due to full-day instead of half-day of workshops and adjudication)
2) Students bring own lunch. Snacks provided as usual.
3) Different styles of dance workshops to choose from!
4) 2 separate/ simultaneous shows* (gr.6-8 & gr.9-12)
*Due to space limitations grade 6-8 will perform/watch in one studio and grade 9-12 in an adjacent one. There would be a separate judge/adadjudication for each. Benefit: This allows for more students to perform while keeping show time to a reasonable length.
