THE PULSE FINAL NIGHT GALA
Sunday, July 27th—The PULSE Final Night Gala is the finale to not only our PULSE Summer NYC, but our entire PULSE Season! Filled with surprises and special guests, the show will also showcase dancers from our private faculty intensives, our PULSE Protégé Program, and top Choreographer’s Picks from entire seasons Performance Showcase. We will also be announcing our Elite PULSE Protégés for the 2014-2015 season. The performance will be held in the main ballroom on Sunday, July 27th at 8:30pm. Tickets to this event are $30 each. If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please email Registration@thepulseontour.com.
NOTE: Not all dancers who attend the PULSE are featured in the Gala. This special performance is an opportunity for our participants and their families to get dressed up, sit back and relax, and enjoy an incredible night of dance!
Dancers may pick up a number during check in. We do not have a traditional closed audition. Instead, PULSE Faculty choose to reward dancers who catch their eye in classes- whether it’s recognizing technique, drive, style or enthusiasm. This process not only permits more class time, but also allows for a controlled, creative, casual atmosphere. We ask that you wear your scholarship number throughout the entire weekend so each faculty can get the chance to see you during your class performance! The PULSE gives away over $30,000 in scholarships at EACH event including PULSE Convention Scholarships, PULSE Summer Scholarships, Training Scholarships to studios and more! All registered participants are eligible for scholarships!
Every great dancer needs a great headshot! Headshots are now color in the dance industry. Use this headshot for your next audition, school event, or local newspaper. A professional resident photographer will take your picture right at The PULSE for an exclusive discounted rate! Sign up for your desired time slot on-site (keep in mind it may be before, between, or after classes) and receive your professional digital negatives and contact sheet before you leave! PRICE: $150 per participant.
TEACHERS AND STUDIO OWNERS
Education is our number one goal at The PULSE and we know it’s your number one goal at your studios too! One of our favorite parts of being on tour is meeting and hosting dance educators, teachers, and instructors from across the country. We value and appreciate every one of you and the work you do; we want to make sure you get the most out of your weekend as a teacher at our event.
14th Annual Teacher Workshop is running alongside our PULSE Summer NYC. Advance your incredible weekend of dance and take any class offered in either PULSE Summer NYC or Teacher Workshop! We offer a special discount for those teachers interested in taking both workshops. As a PULSE Teacher you can purchase our Teacher Workshop Upgrade for an additional $100.
