SAS Dance Exchange 2017


December 16, 2016

Dear High School Parents,

Shanghai American School Pudong Campus is pleased to host the fifth SAS Dance Exchange. This event will be held at Shanghai American School Pudong Campus on Saturday, January 14th 2017. All Middle and High School students are welcome to join us for this amazing day of dance, regardless of previous dance experience of whether they are currently part of the SAS Dance program.

We have four fantastic dance instructors who will lead workshops in a variety of different styles.

We are excited to invite back Elisa Montalvo from the USA, who taught at our first ever dance exchange and is now the head choreographer for Shanghai Disney. Our instructors are all distinguished performers and amazing choreographers, so our students are sure to be inspired!

The event will begin with introductions and a warm-up in the auditorium, followed by workshops around the campus. To conclude the event, students will all participate in an informal performance, showcasing to each other the pieces they have learned from their sessions throughout the day. A closing celebration dinner will follow afterward.

Please register for this event at by Friday, January 8 2017 and submit 100RMB registration fee by the beginning of next semester to the Dance Coaches.

If you or any family members would like to join us for dinner we ask you to enclose 50RMB per person to cover catering costs.

Please feel free to contact all dance coaches directly if you have any questions of concerns related to child’s participation in this event.
