"Your competition is so special as it really unites all the teams together, and competing becomes only a small part of the huge and magnificent experience your nationals week offers." Claire C.
Our National finals is not just a competition, but a summer experience like NO OTHER.
Your dancers will have the best week of the summer. In fact, more than a few dancers told
me that they had the best week of their lives!
Because of the relationships, friendships and camaraderie we promote along with the performance experience.
Our dance companies, seminars and special events truly "dare to be different". They are designed to encourage
all dancers to create friendships,networks, and think of everyone at Nationals as one big dance community.
We strive to assist our dancers in creating fun, lasting relationships that last for years to come.

Dancer's Training Seminars
How it works:
National Companies are by invitation only. Invitations are given at all regional competitions 2017.
The Next Stage Seminars are open to all competitors attending Nationals.
Most rehearsals start Tuesday. Click on the pictures above for rehearsal schedules.
National Company dancers continue meeting Wed-Sat. in the mornings from 8:00- noon.
Competition then starts Wednesday, at 1:00 p.m.
The Next Stage Seminars run all through the days, and never conflict with competition. The junior
seminars are held during senior solos, and the senior seminars are held during junior solos to avoid any
conflicts with competing.
National companies perform before awards on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Dance Television
Company performs for a live audience Saturday, but mostly performs on "location shoots" that are "filming"
during the week. Dance Television videos will be edited and will premiere on line in August.
All dancers in the National Dance Companies (Dance Spectacular, Fashion Show, DTV, Heart & Soul, CRU Crew and Elite Petite, On Broadway) must be registered for the competition and must be in at least one dance in the competition. Independent dancers coming without their studios can come as "Independents".
