2014 UDMA Dance Resource/Costume Shows

UDMA 2014 Dance Resource & Costume Show TourThis fall, the United Dance Merchants of America (UDMA) Dance Resource and Costume Show will return to Georgia, New Jersey and Illinois featuring more than 10,000 costumes and hundreds of products and services.


The UDMA Dance Resource and Costume Show will bring master teachers, leading costume designers and innovative dance professionals together under one roof, giving dance teachers and studio owners a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with the industry’s most-trusted experts.


More than a trade show, the UDMA Dance Resource and Show has become a celebrated tradition for teachers and studio owners who look forward to the weekend as an opportunity to breathe new life into their businesses and season planning.


Like a catalogue come-to-life, guests will have the rare opportunity to see the season’s most-inspired costumes modeled by dancers, experience how the fabrics move and the sequins shimmer. Attendees will have a chance to talk with vendors about the newest products and services.


Dance teachers can also take part in a one-of-a-kind workshop focused on the art of teaching led by different master teachers, with Peff Modelski in Atlanta, Patricia Dickenson in New Jersey and Roni Mahler in Chicago.


UDMA Dance Resource and Costume ShowLori Weil, a regularly attending guest and representative of the Creative Dance and Music Studio, said, “We started attending the UDMA Dance Resource and Costume Show four years ago and cannot imagine recital planning without it! Not only do we get to see and feel our costumes, but we meet our vendors and other studio owners and teachers. Last year, we were lucky enough to win UDMA Gift Bucks. That was a nice surprise for sure! We can’t wait to start planning again this October at UDMA, and see so many of our friends!”


This year, guests will have the opportunity to take part in UDMA’s most popular contest: a sweepstakes to win $4,000 in UDMA Gift Bucks, the ultimate dance shopping spree. There will also be drawings to win prizes like an Apple iPad, free passes to the highly-attended workshops or a free hotel stay to attend the show.


The UDMA Dance Resource and Costume Show tour will bring all of this and more to Georgia on October 4-5, New Jersey on October 11-12, and Illinois on October 18-19.
