Rhythm and Moves Dance Intensive Has All the Right Moves

My living room has become a stage of sorts. Since my daughter started dance lessons, the room that used to be for guests is now a nightly performance venue and I am a captive audience. Sigh. Fortunately, I’ve found an amazing opportunity for her to showcase and fine tune her dance skills- without breaking a lamp! If you’re looking for an exciting, comprehensive dance event, the Rhythm and Moves Dance Intensive has all the right moves.

What is Rhythm and Moves?

Once recital season is over, pack up your dance shoes and head to the stunning Ozarks. Branson, MO is home to the Rhythm and Moves Dance Intensive this July 22-26, 2019. Branson’s top performers share their skills and expertise during master classes and workshops in an encouraging, family-friendly environment. Classes will be held at local dance studios. As a bonus, dancers will showcase their talents in front of a national audience when they perform on the Silver Dollar City stage.



What’s Included?

Tina Cooper (Clay Cooper Express), Mara, Jason and Carina Hughes (The Hughes Brothers) and Jay McManus (Kings Castle Theatre) are just a few of the performers lending their talents to this exclusive event. Master classes in ballet and hip hop and workshops highlighting choreography, acting for dancers, jazz, theatre, tap, intro to Irish dancing and audition skills are included. There are even tickets to three evening shows guaranteed to dazzle your dancer. It’s a star-powered dance event different from anything you’ve experienced before!

Kaleidoscope of Dance in Branson

This past weekend I took my daughter to the local dancers closet for our annual gouging I mean shopping trip in preparation for dance season. While she enjoys dancing and looks forward to getting back to class, I find myself appreciating her interest on a recreational level. In other words, I can still afford to feed my family!

Those who truly know and love dance on a fundamental level will pay any price for the experience of performing. Its a passion and an art form, one that is embraced with dedication, endless hours of hard work and patience. Opportunities abound to showcase those hard-earned skills, usually at a premium fee. Students and studios plan, prepare and fundraise well in advance to participate in these types of events. As you begin thinking about the 2018 season, consider the Kaleidoscope of Dance in Branson, MO as a fabulous option for highlighting your dancers talents- at an incredible price point!

Kaleidoscope of Dance will take place June 11-15, 2018, and will feature masterclasses and workshops with some of Bransons top performers. Following a week of intensive instruction, dancers will take the stage in front of a national audience at Silver Dollar City.

The iconic Mansion Theatre (which has hosted greats such as Wynonna Judd, the Oak Ridge Boys, Clint Black and Sara Evans) will be home base for the week. Students will participate in ballet and hip-hop master classes, workshops in choreography, jazz/theatre, tap and acting for dancers. Theyll have an intro to Irish dancing, fine tune audition skills, and engage with one of Bransons local celebrities for a Life of a Performer Q&A.

Once dancers have wrapped up a week of rigorous instruction, theyll be spotlighted on the Silver Dollar City stage for the showcase performance of a lifetime. This 1880s theme park in the heartland of America is nestled in abundant shade and offers exceptional entertainment and thrilling rides (cool side note- the new Time Traveler, the worlds fastest, steepest and tallest spinning roller coaster, opens in the spring). Starring on the Silver Dollar City stage as featured performers promises to be a life-changing experience!

The Kaleidoscope of Dance program is an exceptional value at $524/person- especially when you consider it includes 5 hotel nights (quad occupancy), 5 breakfasts, 3 lunches and a meal voucher for Silver Dollar City. It ALSO includes 3 evening shows, 3 pre-shows (if available), a 2-day pass to Silver Dollar City and a free student gift. I spent almost as much on shoes and leotards over the weekend!

As you begin thinking about presentation opportunities for your dedicated dancers, remember that the Kaleidoscope of Dance in Branson, MO is a performers dream. Its an amazing event in a fun and friendly town with tons of great attractions geared specifically for students.
