Perform at Dance Day!

Heat up the “stage” this summer at the Philadelphia Dance Day showcase on Saturday, July 30!

This amazing nonprofit community festival has brought hundreds of people out to dance in past years, and we’re so pumped for the 13th(!!!) annual event! After a day filled with free dance workshops, the festival culminates with an evening showcase featuring a fabulously eclectic mix of routines performed by local instructors, semi-professional dancers and student groups.

Philly Dance Fitness is the primary organizer of this volunteer-run event, and it’s always a highlight of the summer. This year, our instructors will be putting together student routines in tap, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, pop jazz, ballet and Bollywood. Whether you’re a beginner or a longtime dancer, we’ve got a place for you to shine on stage! 

Dance Day Performance Series

The following routines will be taught during 60-minute sessions held over only 4 or 5 weeks of rehearsals. Most are open to all levels.

Rehearsal absences can greatly impact blocking for the rest of the group, so please make sure you can commit to the entire series as well as the performance date when signing up. The showcase will be held at 7:30 p.m. on July 30 at Plays & Players Theatre. 

Space is limited by the size of the stage, so sign up early to get your moment in the limelight!
