East Coast Edge is a locally hosted, one day Dance Convention bringing Nationally and Internationally recognized dance educators to the South Shore of Boston. Taking place in Taunton, MA – EAST COAST EDGE will celebrate their 7th year in November 2016. We are proud and yet sad to say that last year we maxed out in the Senior room! We pride ourselves on bringing in TEACHERS WHO ARE IN IT FOR THE EDUCATION AND THE LOVE OF WHAT THEY DO. You will find every staff member there with a smile and a kind word for every student! We mix the BIG NAMES with TRUE EDUCATORS. So, even if you haven’t “heard” of one of our staff members, after the Convention, they will be engrained in your memory forever!
Last year, we added a GALA performance on the eve of the convention. The GALA consists of solo, duo, trio and small group entries who dance for CRITIQUES ONLY. There are no scores and NO COSTUMES. Each student leaves with a disc from each judge with critiques to help them in the upcoming 2017 competition season. The students will also receive LIVE VERBAL critiques in front of the audience after their performance. We are very particular on who we choose to judge this event. They give valuable honest critiques while giving positive feedback to each performer.This year, our 2016 EAST COAST EDGE GALA will be held Saturday, November 12th from 2pm to 7pm. Registration is on a first come first serve basis and last year, being our first year, we SOLD OUT and had rave reviews after the event. We absolutely anticipate selling out again this year. We will have two GALA SESSIONS you can sign up for. SESSION ONE will be from 2-4:30 and session TWO will be from 4:30 to 7pm. AGAIN – this is on a first come first serve basis so if you have a session preference, register EARLY! Following the GALA on Saturday evening will be the first MASTER CLASS of the weekend which will be announced as we get close to the event. We do charge for entrance into the gala - observers ($10). Dancer’s are not charged. Also, if you purchase a weekend observer pass for the Gala and the Convention, the fee for both is $25. Individual observer fees for the Convention only are $25.
