SDA’s Endeavor Tap Ensemble been invited to perform in Disney’s Dance the Magic Showcase on Broadway this November 2019 in New York City. Please support this incredible group of young tappers Broadway dreams.
SDA’s Endeavor Tap Ensemble is a hand picked group of young tap dancers that study at Shreveport Dance Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana. These girls learn choreography for up to four dances and practice year round. They compete in three competitions a year in addition to their regular dance schedule of ballet, tap, jazz and some RAD classes. Many of the dancers are also members of the Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet.
Their hard work and dedication has been rewarded as they have been invited to perform in Disney’s Dance the Magic Showcase on Broadway this November 2019 in New York City. This is a huge honor for these dancers and a testament to their many hours of hard work and skill level. The were one of two groups chosen at the Dance Makers completion in Baton Rouge this spring.
The cost per dancer to attend this event is $2,000 each, plus travel expenses and we are asking for your help to get all of our 30 talented tappers there. While in New York they will attend choreography workshops with Disney choreographers to rehearse the routine they have already been sent and practicing. With the Disney choreographers they will attend a Broadway performance of Frozen, have a question and answer period backstage with the cast and learn about working and performing in a Broadway production. They will also attend a dance workshop with the world famous Rockettes and attend their holiday performance. This trip is exciting not only for the change to dance on Broadway but also all the knowledge and experience they will gain from meeting these incredible working professionals.
The Tap Ensemble is hosting a large number of local fundraisers throughout the Shreveport Bossier area. Our multi faceted fundraisers include spirit nights at local restaurants, a jambalaya plate dinner, a rummage sale, three babysitting nights where parents will be able to drop their children off for a fun night of dance and crafts, as well as some exciting raffles. It is important that our dancers participate in the fundraising effort for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
