Show-Me State Showcase
Larkspur Dance & Choreography was pleased to sponsor the Show-Me State Showcase with the NKC Stingers in their beautiful new state of the art facility on February 8th, 2020! We saw a need for an event that is fun, low stress and positive where teams and coaches can get valuable feedback on their routines as they prepare for subsequent competitions. So many positives from that day!
Since it was a showcase, and not a competition, it was not counted as one of a dance team’s allotted competitions by MSHSAA. The Show-Me State Showcase was sanctioned by MSHSAA and approved by KSHSAA. It was a qualifier for the Missouri State Dance Team Championship. Verbal feedback was given from each judge, providing teams and coaches with concrete suggestions for improvement. Soloists and coaches got a sneak peek at the facility in which the Missouri State Solo Competition will be held. A safety interpreter was present, alerting teams if there were issues with moves in their routine. It was a great performance opportunity without placements, which provided a more positive mindset for teams and coaches, while still getting feedback. The culminating activity for the event was a selection of routines performed that day that really stood out to the judges. These routines were performed for the other participants of the Showcase after a prize drawing for the coaches! Another highlight of the day: an amazing hip hop class with Kreative Force Choreo!
