A little bit about us.  You belong here.


We are in our 18th year of creating events just for dancers.  Our dedicated and experienced team consists of dancers, business owners, moms and a former studio director - so we know what you are looking for.  We provide organized, efficient events with a positive, nurturing atmosphere.  Our awards, schedule structures and judges are carefully selected to ensure the best possible experience for dancers, instructors and parents.

Since 2001, we have grown to 10 competitions throughout the Vancouver Lower Mainland, Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Check out some of the feedback we have received here.



See you on stage.
