About Nationals

I'm so happy to bring this competition to this region, giving young professionals and adults an opportunity, to showcase their hard work and abilities. As a person who frequently travels, and have had these experiences with other dancers around the world, I'm proud to bring this opportunity normally set on another continent, to this region!

Lets experience the next level of dance together, and compete with great intentions.
