FLY at Miller Dance Contest

Calling all dancers! Houston’s own Fly Dance Company is coming to Miller on Friday, September 30th, and we want to see your best moves. To enter, email a video of you dancing (30 seconds or less) to with the subject "FLY at Miller Dance Contest", and include your name, age, and email address. All styles of dance/music are welcome, just make sure it’s CLEAN-CUT and FAMILY FRIENDLY. The person submitting must be the featured dancer in the video, and if you are under 18 years old, a parent/guardian permission slip must be sent in, as well. Only one entry per person.


The afternoon of Friday, September 23rd, all videos will be uploaded to the Miller Outdoor Theatre Facebook page, and voting will commence. Just hit "Like" to vote for your favorite dance: each "Like" is a vote, so be sure to share with your friends! 

Facebook voting will end on Wednesday, September 28th at noon, and the "Likes" will be tallied. The three videos with the most likes will be notified and invited to Friday's Fly Dance Company performance, wherein the winner will be decided! 

During intermission, the top three videos will be shown on Miller's screen and the audience will vote for their favorite via mobile phone voting. Be sure to invite your friends and family to the show because the video with the most votes from that night will be the winner and receive tickets to an upcoming Miller show! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call 832-487-7124.

We look forward to seeing your FLY style!
