Dear Friends of the Dance Community,

Sole City Dance is pleased to share with you information and registration materials for our annual celebration of dance to be held on Saturday, March 23rd and Sunday, March 24th. Dance Northeast! features performance opportunities, a student choreography showcase, and master classes. Performances will be held at the Rochester Opera House, located in downtown Rochester and master classes will take place at the Sole City Dance studios located at 187 Route 108 in Somersworth.

Don’t miss your opportunity to participate! There is room for 9 companies to be featured in our evening concert Saturday at 7:00 pm at the Opera House. Because this is a non-competitive celebration of the art of dance, studios, and companies that do not participate in dance competitions will be given first priority. High school, college, pre-professional and professional companies may perform up to eight minutes of choreography. A second performance opportunity for younger and second companies, as well as student choreographers, will be in an afternoon showcase also held at the Opera House at 2:00 pm. All solos must submit an audition video. Email for more info.

Master classes will be on Sunday and are open to the public, so be sure and reserve your space by registering early. The full master class schedule will be released soon!

All registration forms for companies, student choreographers, and individual dancers are included in this attachment and must be returned to Sole City Dance by February 23, 2019, in addition to music.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Alex via email at alex@solecitydance.org or Moriah via email at moriah@solecitydance.org. We hope you can join us for this exciting community dance event!

Sincerely,
