the 2019 summer event

July 26-31 | dallas, tx


welcome to the 2019 summer event

Directed by Justin Giles and the elite SoulEscape company, artists age 12 and up will get the opportunity to spend a week training with this prestigious company. Your time will include 6 hours of workshop classes a day, guided by Justin and a special group of guest artists. You will also learn, rehearse and perform the Company’s 2019 work which you will view on opening night! Additionally, each evening we offer special events ranging from an improv workshop to our popular Solo Showcase. Here, we provide a non-competitive setting for you to perform a solo for your peers. Justin and the SE company will personally offer their feedback for you to take home with you. Your work will then be on display at our closing night show as you become the performer. This is a healthy, positive and professional environment set aside for those who are serious about the art of dance. In order to ensure the integrity of this event, we will be limiting registration. 

As we enter our 12th Summer Event, we are elated to return to Dance Industry Performing Arts Center in Plano, TX for this summer’s event.

performance costuming

Costuming for SoulEscape Student Performance will be simple with the exception of a few things that will be provided for certain pieces. However, in order to maintain a somewhat uniform, professional, and clean look, please bring as many of the following items with you as possible:

  • Girls: Sold colored white dresses, pants, tops. Flesh colored undergarments if necessary

  • Boys: Navy/Black t-shirt, tan pants/shorts, as well as all white options

The more of these items you bring, the more we will be able to mix and match to make everyone look good. If you don’t have some of these items or if you are confused about what something is, don’t worry. Just bring anything that comes close to what is listed above. We will notify you with more specific details regarding costuming as the event approaches.

Dancers are welcome to wear anything they’d like to class and rehearsals.

Professionalism during SoulEscape is of the utmost importance. Professional conduct is required at all times. This is not a convention, workshop, or dance showcase. This is a professional production. Also, it is the participants’ responsibility to remember the choreography from day to day. The company and mentors are here for YOU. We look forward to a memorable week!

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any further questions regarding the Summer Event!
