Dance Off

The Elite Dance Challenge Dance Off takes place on Sunday, July 30th. National’s judges select routines for the Dance Off based upon entertainment value. Approximately 10 routines from each division Junior (12 and under) and Senior (13 and over) will be selected.

Routines selected for the Dance Off will be announced on Saturday, July 29th. Solos are not eligible to participate in the Dance Off. There is no cost to participate in or attend the Dance Off.

Grand Champion of the Dance Off will receive $1,000 and a 6-foot trophy.

Junior and Senior Dance Off Winners will each receive $500 and a 4-foot trophy.

Elite Team

Elite Dance Challenge judges and staff will select outstanding routines from each of our regional competitions. Any dancer who is in a selected routine is invited to be a part of our Elite Performance Team at Nationals for that year.

This is your opportunity to meet new friends, work with a different choreographer, and learn new choreography. Your studio does not have to attend our National for you to come and be part of the Elite Performance Team.

Remember: If you are selected for the Elite Performance Team you must accept your invitation by turning the paperwork into your Competition Team Director to be mailed into Elite Dance Challenge by June 10, 2017 with fee enclosed.
