In addition, select "Epic Dancers" will be considered for assisting our esteemed choreographers during classes at Epic Conventions and will be considered to perform their award winning routine during the Showcase at the convention!!! Please contact Epic staff for more details.
Check-in will begin one hour before the first event on Friday night. Student/Teacher wrist bands and observer bands will be available for purchase/pick-up before class begins each day. Wrist bands should be picked up by the person who registered the group. If that person will be unavailable, please let us know in advance.

There is no video/flash photography allowed inside the ballrooms!!! Failure to comply to this rule will result in eviction from the ballroom. No exceptions!!!

There is absolutely no food or drink allowed in the ballrooms, nor the lobby. Please bring bottled water only to class. Water will be provided daily in each ballroom as well.
Wrist bands must be worn by all teachers, students and observers. No one will be allowed to enter a ballroom without the appropriate band. Bands will be checked upon entering each ballroom. Teachers have the freedom to dance or observe in ANY ballroom. Lost wrist bands cannot be replaced, so please keep your band on your wrist at all times!
Epic Dance Showcase will not refund any fees unless we are responsible for the cancellation of the convention.

Epic Dance Showcase recommends the following age limits for class, but it is up to the teacher's discretion as to where to place their students. Competitive 5-8 yrs, Advanced 9-12 yrs, Elite 13 yrs and up (Teachers must be at least 18 yrs of age).
Parents, siblings, and/or fans who aren't participating in class, may purchase an observer band and observe in ballrooms during class. This band will also grant admission to the Showcase, but does not allow one to dance. Any child over the age of 3 will require an observer band. While we welcome everyone to enjoy the classes, please be respectful of the dancers, teachers and choreographers. Keep any talking to a minimum, don't obstruct the viewing of others, no food or drink allowed, and NO VIDEO OR FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY!
There will be a showcase during the convention in which the all-star, guest choreographers will perform. Select dancers may be chosen to perform the choreography they learned in class that day! This will be an exciting event you will not want to miss!!! YOU MUST HAVE A STUDENT/TEACHER OR OBSERVER WRIST BAND IN ORDER TO ENTER THE SHOWCASE. If you don't have a wrist band, a ticket for the show can be purchased for $5.00.
All faculty is scheduled to teach at each convention in every level. In the event one of our scheduled master teachers is not able to attend a convention, a teacher of comparable notoriety will be substituted.
There will be a 10-15 minute break between each one hour class. There will be a lunch break each day and a dinner break as well, on the night of the Showcase. These breaks will be noted on the schedule. Please remember, no food or drink is allowed in the hotel lobby or ballrooms!
A detailed schedule will be posted at a later date.
