DANCE EVENT | 24seven Dance Convention 

The popularity of TV shows like "Dance Moms" and "Glee" have brought dancing lessons back in the public eye. If your son or daughter, grandchild, or niece or nephew has been bitten by the dancing bug, the 24SEVEN Dance Convention is an opportunity for them to showcase their talent and receive constructive feedback. The convention will include three days of classes and competition, running Friday, January 4, through Sunday, January 6. For those who cannot commit to the whole weekend, there is a one-day workshop option. (Note, however, that dancers who choose this option cannot participate in the competition.)

The event features a teaching faculty with experience with the Los Angeles Ballet, Julliard, The Broadway Dance Center, The New York/Seoul International Dance Festival, and more. The goal is to provide young dancers with a diverse, well-rounded experience. Performance divisions include jazz, ballet, hip-hop, tap, contemporary, lyrical, musical theater, and improvisation. For those dance aficionados who aren't so light on their feet, there is also an observer pass option for the entire weekend for $40. Admission to the 24 SEVEN Competition and Closing Show is free.

The convention will take place at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, 123 E. Main St. Dancer and teacher registration fees range from $95 to $325, and dancers must be registered with a specific studio to participate. For more information and to register, visit
