What is SOUL?

Soul is a groundbreaking, non-competitive, experience for dancers, their parents and teachers to immerse themselves in all that dance has to offer. There are movement classes, special workshops, seminars, exhibitors and celebrations designed to inspire a new appreciation for the art of dance and ALL dancers.

Soul will build confidence and help dancers, parents and teachers better understand that the dance journey can take us all on a path to ultimate success and fulfillment.

This was a great event! All my dancers felt comfortable enough to try new styles of dance and my own daughter got in the car, said she had so much fun and fell asleep. No talking about awards, no why, how, next time, just pure FUN! Thank you for that! 💖💙
