At the end of the week, all three Beth Fowler School of Dance (BFSD) age groups were asked to compete in the National Showdown which is the “Best of the Best Final Competition.” The Juniors (ages 11-12) took 1 st Place in the Showdown with Jazz Dance “Wind It Up” choreographed by Brooke Fowler. This made “Wind It Up” undefeatable all season! This is the 2 nd year in a row for the BFSD Junior Team to be undefeated all season long! The Teens (ages 13-15) also took 1 st Place in the Showdown with Lyrical dance “Heroes” choreographed by Brooke Fowler.
All BFSD Group Dances that competed received the highest Platinum Awards!
Beth Fowler said, “Our motto is Proper Start….. Successful Future. Our main focus is not competition but we do well in it because our main focus is getting our dancers off to a great start with a stepping stone progressive dance training program. Our main focus and most rewarding accomplishment is not the awards we win but watching the dancers progress through the different levels putting good technique and performing in the theatre as our first priority. From there, the dancers are prepared to successfully take on any challenge.”
Beth Fowler School of Dance has been training dancers from ages 3 thru adult for over 33 years. However; the school just started competing in 2013 and has taken 1 st place over all every year. All Beth Fowler competitive dancers have received their dance training from the Beth Fowler School of Dance. The dance school’s program focuses on training dancers for excellent technique and performance artistry. This training has enabled the dancers to secede at a high level of competition in a short time. All students have the opportunity to learn the skills needed for the competitive style of dance even if they do not wish to compete or perform. This is through a class titled, “Turns & Tricks.” The dance school also added Acrobatics which has enhanced the dancer’s abilities to achieve additional skills.
The Beth Fowler School of Dance presents 3 dance productions a year at the Egyptian Theatre and has an additional Performing Group for community events and competitions as a bonus performing opportunity.
Auditions for next season’s teams are set for August 6th and 7th 2016 at both the Genoa and St. Charles BFSD locations. A make-up date has been set for August 17th . Also the Beth Fowler Dance Company (non-competitive company) is also holding auditions at the end of the summer in Summer Camp Workshop D. The Beth Fowler School of Dance is currently taking enrollment for 1 and 2 week Summer Dance Camps. Summer Camps are strongly recommended, especially if wishing to audition for both or either group.
