Plans are underway for the 2023-2024 Competition. Couples age 8-25 are invited to participate, competing for dance scholarships and cash prizes! Even if you’ve never danced before, we’ll teach you all you need to know.

New for this year: A Beginning Young Adult category for dancers 18-25 years of age.

Save the Dates: We will have three workshops, September 30, October 21 and November 18. Prelims are December 2. Finals are February 24.

If you’re considering competing in Fall of 2023, download the Information Packet to see how the program works. Get the Registration Form to sign up for the competition.
