Be Awesome

Get ready for a fresh new approach to dance competitions. We’ve created a magical experience for students, parents & studios alike.  We like to say it’s a competition by studios, for studios, because it was designed by voices like yours!

Unique Competition Features

Free T-Shirts

Free Programs

Our beautiful glossy programs are provided for FREE. Parents have raved over how much they love this perk, and we have to agree!

Video Adjudication

Every entry is filmed in HD and individual judge’s critiques are overlaid on the video so you can see and hear the feedback. Videos are mobile friendly too, so you can easily review and share with your competition teams & staff members on the go.


Dance studio life can leave you with weird pockets of time to get ‘er done. We get it! Reach out by  email, text, or facebook. While we’re not quite 24/7, we are definitely available “after hours” and respond quickly.
