The “United Dance Showcase” is an event where dancers come together to share with everyone their dance and unite to create a visually enticing experience.
This was my first time organizing an event. The event was a dance showcase. The cause was to spread the art of dance to a new audience and raise money for the theater and science department at Barrington High School. A big thank you to everyone who helped on the show. The credits are in the video and the order of some of the performances listed below.
Although I appreciate everyone who helped in any way, shape or form; I want to take this time to highlight some people.
To Darian Wallace; I don’t know if it’s his awesome personality or charisma. But every time I reach out to him or we link up, we don’t miss a beat, he’s a cool cat. He introduced me to amazing dancers and got his own crew together.
To Chris “Whoopie” Maisoh, he was massive help a couple of days before the showcase. Helped me organized the show, get some dancers, and helped one of the performers get to the show on time.
To Jean Villar who I met through the showcase, we connected right away and gave great support.
To Mike Alyward, a big supporter of the show, helped get word out locally and has a wonderful enthusiasm for art.
To Stephanie Spaziano, without her the event wouldn’t have been possible. She is a passionate woman and I learned a lot from her.
Again a warm thanks to everyone who supported, came out, helped out and performed at the showcase.

Creating The “United Dance Showcase”
The concept I created and wanted for the “United Dance Showcase” was to show a variety a dance styles under one “united” roof. The “United Dance Showcase” is an event where dancers come together to share with everyone their dance, while uniting with other dancers to create moments of visually enticing euphoria.
I went out and met dancers at a couple of studios and art clubs and reached out to dancers on social media. It was a beautiful experience to meet such talented and vibrant people.
Again this being my first time producing a event I quickly learned how much hard work, leading and planning goes into creating events. I faced some bumps in the roads and a few arguments here and there, but ultimately things got taken care of and I’m proud of how I handle the direction of the event.
The night turned out great; everyone there had a blast and everyone involved did their part and it all came together to create a night that was quite refreshing. I learned a bit about artistic direction and directing through this event.
