"Square One; A starting point. An initial stage or step." Kick off the 2023 season with this unique new experience!
With two options available, the full experience or intensive only, we have options for every dancer at every level!
Square One is not a competition. The focus of the weekend is exposure, feedback, and growth.
Dancers will perform their solo to receive verbal feedback from three judges, as well as have the opportunity to work with amazing leaders in the dance industry through 4 hours of master classes with Rapture Dance Intensive. Dancers may register independently for the intensive only, or for the full experience through their Studio/Director/Coach. Selected soloists will perform in the finale showcase. This is a two-day event, with Solo performances on Saturday, and the Intensive and Showcase on Sunday.
$165 per person / $150 Early Bird Rate through September 30th, 2022 (FULL EXPERIENCE)
$100 per person / $90 Early Bird Rate through September 30th, 2022 (4 HOUR INTENSIVE ONLY)
Registering for any Dance Force Xpress event indicates that the participant and legal guardian
have reviewed and accepted the terms of the participant waiver in it's entirety.
