The Final Night Gala is the finale to not only our Summer Las Vegas, but our entire PULSE, Camp PULSE and Open Call Season! Filled with surprises and special guests, the show will also showcase dancers from our private Faculty Invitationals, our PULSE Protégé Program, Camp PULSE Counselor Program, Principal Lead Role Winners, Guest Performances and the top routines from our Battle Royale Finals! We will also be announcing our Elite PULSE Protégés and Lead Camp Counselors for the 2017-2018 Season.
The PULSE Summer Gala Invitational is an extraordinary workshop, where selected dancers have the opportunity to work with one of our world-famous choreographers in an intimate classroom setting, where they will learn a piece to perform in the Final Night Gala. These six pieces will be choreographed and directed by Mollee Gray, Jaimie Goodwin, Cris Judd, Blake McGrath, Dave Scott, and Matt Steffanina!
The PULSE Protégé Program and the Camp PULSE Counselor Program are both opportunities for dancers to train with our world-renowned choreographers in every regional city with free tuition for a full calendar year! These dancers have the opportunity to work with the staff in order to gain perspective on all avenues of the dance industry. Dancers are selected in each level during all of our tour stops. During our Summer Las Vegas event these dancers will be competing for the title of Elite Protege and Lead Counselor, the highest honors at The PULSE & Camp PULSE! Our Proteges will be showcased in a piece choreographed and set by Dean Lee and our Counselors will be showcased in a piece choreographed by Rosero McCoy!
Elite Protégé and Lead Counselor are the highest form of scholarships we offer at The PULSE and Camp PULSE, traveling the country as assistants for our amazing faculty. Eighteen lucky dancers are chosen. We handle all travel arrangements and accommodations for select dancers. These dancers truly become part of our family. Becoming a PULSE Elite Protégé or a Camp PULSE Lead Counselor is certainly a once in a lifetime experience! Our past Elites and Leads can be seen dancing and working on today’s hit TV shows, movie sets, and hottest recording artist's tours.
