Schedule & Workshops


Dancers of all ages should arrive on the Capitol steps, sporting individual dance school memorabilia, ready for a jazz stretch warm-up. The warm-up should last approximately 15 to 20 minutes. A short kickline routine will be taught to all dancers, preparing them for the actual kickline at 1:00 pm. Dancers should wear comfortable seasonal clothing, i.e. sweatshirts, stretch pants and sneakers. In the event of rain, the kickline will be canceled. Dancers of all ages are welcome. This portion of the event is FREE and does not require preregistration.


Immediately following the Capitol Kickline, master class workshops will be conducted by international, national and local choreographers in contemporary ballet, tap and tourography at the Harrisburg Hilton and Towers in downtown Harrisburg. Dancers ages eight through adult are welcome. Preregistration ONLINE is required. The cost is $45.00 for Junior, Intermediate and Advanced workshops. Prices include snack, workshop, facility rental, and an awesome time. All dancers should wear dancewear and proper shoes. The workshop will be closed to the public, except for the last 15 minutes when everyone is welcome to observe the choreography that has been learned.
