Ignite Dance Competition is making its debut in 2021 as a brand new addition to the competitive dance world. Here at Ignite we are driven by dance, fueled by passion, and inspired by you!
Our weekends bring together dancers, teachers, and studio owners from across the region to share their love for dance in a positive environment where community, kindness, and respect are of great importance. In order to provide dancers with the best experience, we offer opportunities for them to grow in their craft while gaining valuable insight from industry professionals.
With our affordable entry fees, we look forward to seeing dancers showcase their talent and receive feedback and critiques from our panel of professional judges. Each dance will receive an adjudication as well as awards for a high score, technique, and choreography. We offer an improv and a title competition where dancers have more opportunities to take the stage each weekend.
Ignite offers free convention classes in various styles throughout the weekend to give dancers the opportunity to continue to grow in their craft. These classes are instructed by experienced teachers and artists who have performed, taught, and choreographed in the industry and are assisted by our ambassador team.
Our Ambassador program is something special to us because we get to work closely with a group of up-and-coming dancers looking to gain more from the average dance competition experience. These dancers can be seen welcoming you to each city, helping at awards ceremonies, taking over our social media, assisting in convention classes, and much more.
With the current circumstances of a global pandemic, we are extremely grateful to be able to host in-person events for dancers, studios, and families to attend, however, we hold your health and safety as our top priority. Ignite has implemented both general public health and state guidelines to ensure the safety of our dancers, studios, and families. Our weekends will run by a block schedule where each studio has its own time slot to compete, use the dressing room, and receive awards, including proper sanitation of facilities both before and after. Due to the block schedule and the restriction on large gatherings, we now offer a free Livestream where dances on stage can be watched from anywhere.
We are looking forward to an amazing season ahead, and we cannot wait to dance with all of you!
