The Show Dance Competition’s mission is to create an inspiring atmosphere for all performers to showcase individual talents and strengths. Our commitment to developing new and old relationships while supporting studio directors and dancers in a stress-free environment.

Our competition is fast-paced and relaxed. We do our best to stay on schedule and thus occasionally run solos on the Friday evening prior to the competition due to time constraints.
