We offer free convention-style classes throughout each weekend taught by our judges. Classes will be divided by age and will vary in dance style. A dancer must be competing with Ignite that weekend in order to take one of our free convention classes. The number of free convention classes offered depends on the schedule and will vary each weekend. See your cities schedule for all convention class times. You do not need to preregiser for these classes.
The ambassador program gives dancers the opportunity to represent Ignite Dance Competition. There is a two part application process and ambassadors are hand-selected by the executive director. Top soloists and regional improv winners are also invited to apply. Ambassadors get to travel with Ignite when we are on tour, help with awards, assist in convention classes, and join the Ignite Team in Charleston, SC for an exclusive ambassador weekend. Learn More.
