Dance United School of Dance’s End of Year Showcase will be held in early November at The Doncaster Secondary College (123 Church Road, Doncaster). The End of Year Showcase is a fantastic opportunity for students to perform & show off all their hard work from throughout the year. There will be a compulsory Showcase Rehearsal at The Doncaster Secondary College the week before. All classes participate in the Showcase excluding Exam & Technique Classes. However, while highly recommended it is not compulsory to participate in the Showcase. It is the parents responsibility to make us aware if their child will not participate at the Showcase upon enrolment.
