Orlando Dance Convention – A Blast
Integrity company attended its third “The Beat Dance Convention” in Orlando and what an ABSOLUTE Rockin’ Weekend!
Message from Ms.Maria …
The Beat Convention was once again one for the records!! Thank you to all my dancers for ROCKING OUT, FULL OUT and showing off your true potential!! You embraced every class, every teacher and every moment to the fullest. I am a very proud teacher tonight, not only for those that were recognized but for ALL MY DANCERS!! There was never a moment I walked in class and saw slackers, you all pushed yourselves, lived, loved, and allowed yourselves to grow more!! THANK YOU!! LOVE MY DANCERS WITH INTEGRITY BEYOND WORDS!!!!
SCHOLARSHIPS and Top 20!
Congratulations to our selected Top 20 Beat Showcase Dancers Austin L and Rita S, way to represent! Congratulations also to Kaitlyn B and Austin L for being selected to participate in The Beat Hollywood Tour and last but not least Lolita N who also received a scholarship for The Beat Dance Convention!! So proud!!
Integrity will sure be there for the 4th time in 2015…..
The Beat was started by Courtney Galiano (SYTYCD Season 4, top 4 finalist and returning ALL STAR) and her family. There are 4 cities currently on The Beat’s tour schedule: Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta and Long Island. The faculty is FULL of SYTYCD faculty and the show’s producer, Jeff Thacker, attends.
Courtney, Jeff and the rest of the faculty and staff have such wonderful insights and words of wisdom to share…they are humble, down to earth, and work you to the bone… Never do things feel rushed or stressful, it is a rather relaxing/energetic kinda feeling. Parent’s observer bands are included in their child’s tuition (my what a thought!) and the weekend is competitively priced with other conventions… but… because of the cap on number of attendees, the number is never overwhelming…. Scholarships are given at the end of the weekend and a portion of the proceeds go to benefit MS. What’s not to love!
