Showcase Event

Date: Saturday, May 27, 2023


RockPointe Theatre, Bearspaw
255024 Lochend Rd
Calgary, AB T3L 2R2

Time: TBA

*We suggest that you plan well in advance so that you arrive in plenty of time, taking traffic and parking into account.


Cost: $25.00 each, plus service fees
*Dancers are also charged a participation fee to participate in the Year-end Showcase. This fee is per child, will be charged in early Spring, and is non-refundable. Specifics will be included on your Year-end Showcase newsletter.


Seating is on a first-come basis, and fire regulations dictate that children two years of age and older require their own seat and may not sit on a parent’s lap.

We will put on more than one show in an effort to keep them at a family-friendly length! Your child will participate in only one of the two shows if he/she is in two or fewer classes/dances. If your child is in three or more classes they will participate in more than one show time. ALL Competition team dancers will perform in multiple shows. If you have siblings at MDA they may participate in different shows from one another, we do try our best to accommodate this but it is just simply not always possible. Tickets are required for each show you attend.

We will share which show(s) your child is in when we release the running order. This will be well in advance of the showcase and ticket purchasing so you can plan your day.

*Please do not request your child performs at a particular show time, as there are too many factors that go into creating the showcase schedule to accommodate individual requests. Thank you for your understanding.


An important element in our Year-End Showcase is the costumes that add color, vibrancy, and beauty to the stage.

We ask if minor costume alterations need to be made that perhaps a parent, neighbor or friend can make these alterations for you as there has been no added charge with which to cover the cost of a seamstress.

Costumes will be given out in class in April/May. A costume Dress Requirement sheet with information regarding costume, hair, make-up, shoes, etc. will be posted well in advance so you can purchase the required items.

Photo Days

Photo days give each and every child the opportunity to shine! Dancers get to wear their costume and make-up and smile for the cameras. Solo photos and classes photos will both be taken with the option to order the photos, making a beautiful keepsake! Dates / times and further details to follow.

Digital Video

MDA is using the services of a professional video company that is able to offer a digital video of the Shoawcase; you will receive an online link and which you can share with family! It makes a great keepsake! All dancers share equally in the cost.

Our Committment to Your Dancers!

We are committed to making your child’s experience the best it possibly can be!

  1. You can order a beautifully wrapped rose to gift to your child following his / her performance.
  2. Help us to say a big thank you to our amazing teachers! Teacher appreciation donation option will be made available to you.
  3. Please volunteer to help make the show the best it can be. We rely on parent participation and help in order to run the show and the practice rehearsal run smoothly.

The Year-End Showcase is a celebration of the dancers’ hard work, progress and enjoyment of dance and we look forward to seeing our dancers shine on the stage💖
