Semi-Formal Awards GALA

Back to AmeriCup

Updated 07.31.17

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. Children under 5 are free, but will not have a seat (chair) at the table.  All seats require a ticket. Feel free to have them sit on your lap..

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.

The fine linens are set out for all DX guests.  A formal place setting and delicious dinner complete the atmosphere for the Semi-Formal Awards Gala.

Dress for the occasion. Prom dresses or church-type clothing is very appropriate. Guys should wear shirt and ties.  

Don't forget your camera.
