Semi-Formal Awards GALA
Back to AmeriCup
Unique to DX events, the Semi-Formal Awards Gala has always been a favorite of attendees. The evening features recognition for coaches, individuals, as well as, academic excellence.
Tickets must be purchased in advance through the organization's account. Guests wanting to attend should contact the director/coach directly. Cost is $39 per person. All people entering the Gala require a ticket.
Announcements for All American and Performer of the Year take place during the show. Therefore, AA and POY candidates are required to attend the Awards Gala.
Admission tickets to the Awards Gala include: a formal sit-down dinner and awards program..
National Performer of the Year winners will debut their award winning routines live during the evening's festivities. Coaches may recognize one individual to represent their program for the DX Distinguished Leadership Award. Dance Coach of the Year and DX Hall of Fame Inductees will be recognized, along with the Andrew Lawrence Sportsmanship Honor. The night's event is all about recognition and rewarding those who've accomplished so much in the field of dance.
It is strongly encouraged that attendees wear church type clothing to prom dresses. Men are encouraged to wear shirts with ties. Jackets are optional. This is your chance to dress-up like a prince or princess and shine. Often dancers come to Minneapolis and go to the Mall of American to purchase their dresses for prom. Minnesota does not have sales tax on clothing.
