Competitions & Showcases

Everyone deserves a chance to shine. All levels of dancers can take part in competitions and showcases. Participating in these activities are a fun way to improve your technique and style. Create a goal and dance in a competition or showcase in the new year. 

Start planning your showcase piece. Do you have a favorite song you have been wanting to dance to? Showcases are the perfect way to have your teacher choreograph something special just for you, to be performed for friends, family, and other dance enthusiasts. The Find the Star Within Showcase in September is an especially wonderful and supportive environment for dancers of all levels to perform.
