Reserved Admission for Small Studios

We’ve just added a limited number of reserve admission tickets to the workshops at our smallest venues. For most of our workshops and venues, space is not an issue, and we can accommodate all the dancers that want to participate. However, some of our smaller studios have limits of about 30 dancers or less. In years past, we’ve had to turn away some dancers from workshops at these small venues. This year we’ve decided to offer a small number of “reserved admission” tickets for these workshops. For a small fee, you are guaranteed a spot in the workshop if you are present on time. If you’re not present on time, your spot will be given away to a walk-in dancer and no refund will be issued.

Please understand that even for the workshops offering reserved admission tickets, the vast majority of spots in the class will be held for day of walk-ins. For example, Major Moment Studio has a capacity of 30 dancers per workshop. Only 10 tickets are available for reserve, leaving at least 20 spots for free walk-ins. As always, if you’re going to be a walk-in to any of the workshops, we advise you to arrive early to secure your spot.

You can find links to reserve admission tickets on the Workshop Schedule. Reserved tickets will be available for sale until noon on the Friday before Dance Day.

Learn the National Dance Day Routines on July 26

If you’re a fan of the Fox TV reality series, “So You Think You Can Dance?” you might already know that producers and choreographers involved with this show spearheaded the creation of National Dance Day. And, as part of their efforts to encourage this national celebration of dance, they post routines for the public to learn through the Dizzy Feet Foundation.

Since we also happen to love this show and all things dancing, we always make sure to include these routines in our Philadelphia Dance Day schedule. So, here’s where you can learn them this year:

Everybody Dance Routine

A jazzy line dance set to “Too Cool To Dance” by Eden xo, and choreographed by SYTYCD co-creator, executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe. Also, find a seated variation of the routine here.

Learn it in Philly:  11 a.m. as part of a beginner jazz workshop at the CEG Performing Arts Academy at Broad and Fairmount Streets. (684 N. Broad St.) Instructed by Diamond Edmonds, the current Miss Philadephia.

Official Hip-Hop Master Class Routine

A more challenging hip-hop piece by SYTYCD choreographer Chris Scott to Mark Ballas’ “Get My Name.”
