Showtime Promotions is dedicated to promoting young talent in dance across Canada. We have 40 years experience in the dance community and have been organizing Dance Festivals for over 25 years. We were the first Canadian Festival offering training levels so that dancers are adjudicated according to their training and providing a fair and encouraging atmosphere in which they can progress from the beginner stages right through to professional careers. We only use the foremost adjudicators who are current performers and choreographers in the professional dance field. Each season we present over $100,000.00 in cash awards and scholarships to deserving young talent. We are the ONLY festival series that send two outstanding dancers from each event to Los Angeles on a full scholarship to the Edge Performing Arts Center in Hollywood, California.
Currently we host different competition and festival formats across Canada, along with the Crystal Classic Grand Championships held in Kelowna, BC. We wrap up each season with our ULTIMATE summer dance camp the Rocky Mountain Dance Project in Jasper, AB.
We feel that all performers deserve one on one adjudication regardless of results and at both our Festivals and Competitions, marks and medal placements are awarded to each performance. At the Evergreen, Dance Extreme and Dream Team Festivals, special awards are presented for “Outstanding”, “Most Promising” and “Adjudicators Choice” in each category in addition to medal placements based upon their level. At the Great Canadian Dance Challenge (a competition style format) 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place Awards are presented in addition to medal placements. Choreography Awards are presented in every group category at all of our events. We feel it is important to support and promote the choreographers and teachers who dedicate themselves to excellence!
OVER $100,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
All HIGH SILVER (or higher) recipients from any Showtime Promotions event qualify for our Crystal Classic Grand Championships held every year in July in Kelowna, BC. At this event large cash awards for soloists, duets, groups and choreography are presented. Summer training scholarships in Canada and the US are also awarded.
Our season ends with the most exciting summer camp with fantastic choreographers! The “Rocky Mountain Dance Project” is a six day, action packed summer camp held in beautiful Jasper, AB. It includes meals, accommodation, supervision, white water rafting and unlimited training with our fabulous faculty of professionals.
Showtime Promotions is always looking for new ways to provide opportunities for emerging talent and to share our love of dance with the community!
