Alchemy Dance Solo Showcase

We are VERY EXCITED to announce that we are having our first annual Solo Showcase!

Our competitive team dancers not only compete their groups all season, but they also spend many hours of their own time practicing solos, duos, and trios that we never have the opportunity to share with our friends, family, and community!

Come out on June 22nd for an entertaining evening featuring some of their favourite solos, duos, and trios from the 2021/22 season!
