About The Event
Be a part of Dupree Dance's 40 Year Anniversary Tour!
The quality of each Dupree Dance event is reflected on the faces and in the sentiment of every attendee! Dupree Dance brings an amazing faculty of six successful, industry-clad dancers and choreographers who teach a wide variety of dynamic master classes throughout each day of the workshop. The class content for each level will include (but is not limited to) Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Jazz Funk, Lyrical/Contemporary, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Technique. There are a total of 5 class levels to choose from depending on both the age and ability of each registered dancer.
Classes will run from 8 am until 2 pm on both Saturday and Sunday. You may click on the sample schedule or exact class schedule below. Sample schedules are replaced by the exact class schedule no later than one month prior to each event.
We have an optional competition for convention-registered dancers that will begin between 2-3 PM on Saturday and is free to all observers! In most cities, we also hold a Friday competition that will likely contain a portion or all of the solo and duo/trio entries. It is also possible that some of our age division group, line and/or production routines will also compete on Friday. Make sure to inform your dancers and dance families so they can plan ahead for a potential Friday competition start. Dupree will communicate with registrants via email within one week post-registration deadline as to our general competition details at your event.
In addition to learning amazing technique and innovative choreography, dancers of all ages and abilities will learn to surrender any worry, fear, and ego and to trust and honor their own uniqueness. Students and teachers will undoubtedly leave our conventions and competitions with wonderful memories and a refreshed outlook on the artistry of dance.
Feel free to explore our website to obtain further details about both our convention and competition under General Information.
