The second annual East Coast Edge Dance Convention, a day of master classes for dancers ages 8 to 18, has been scheduled for October 23 from 8am to 5pm at the Taunton Inn and Conference Center, Taunton, Massachusetts.
Director Carolyn Pereira, owner of the Dancer’s Edge retail dancewear store, founded the convention last year to offer a local alternative for Southeastern Massachusetts dance students who travel to dance conventions in Boston and New York City.
Faculty will includes dance stars from show such as So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With the Stars, and America’s Best Dance Crew. Classes will be offered in contemporary, hip-hop, Broadway, tap, and more. Motivational speaker Sandi Duncan will discuss self-esteem, confidence, and goal setting for pre-teens and teens.
Early-bird tuition registration is $95 until September 1 (after September 1, tuition is $105). Observation fee is $20. There is no charge for studio owners accompanying students. The event is limited to 160 students per age division: 8 to 12, or 13 and over. For more information, visit www.eastcoastedgemass.com or call 508.822.0011.
