Top 10 Groups Challenge for Charity
Our TOP 10 GROUPS – CHALLENGE FOR CHARITY puts a new twist on our former charity showcase making it the exciting finale of each event so more dancers can participate in giving back to the community through dance. On the final evening of each festival 10 groups, representing 10 studios, based on the highest score from each, will perform to raise funds in support of Ronald McDonald House BC/ YUKON. One group will be chosen by our adjudicators at the end of the show as that event’s TOP GROUP and earn its members exclusive access to our annual TOP 10 Intensive. Group scores will be posted and updated throughout the event and we will do our best to announce the TOP 10 GROUPS performing a day in advance. Only COMPETITIVE and ELITE groups are eligible and it will be a ticketed event with proceeds going to charity.
Proceeds from every event go back into our communities.
Since 2016 we have participated regularly in the Ronald McDonald House Family Meal Program, using proceeds from our charitable events to purchase, prepare and serve meals to families staying at the house while receiving treatment. We give dancers a chance to give back through performance opportunities, and invite parents, teachers and dancers 19+ to join us at an upcoming family meal.
Dancers In Need Scholarships
We believe in making competition accessible to all dancers. Through our Dancers In Need Scholarships, dancers who are unable to participate in competition due to financial restraints are eligible for assistance with Shine Dance Festival competition fees. To apply, please complete the online application form and include a letter of support from your studio/ program director by November 1st prior to the event season. Dancers are eleigible to apply every 2nd year and directors are asked to consider strong attendance and commitment to the team when determining who to recommend.
