FREE Convention classes
Each weekend you will find free convention-style classes from one of our highly-esteemed judges throughout the schedule. Styles will vary and dancers will be divided by age. Look at your studio's weekend schedule for more details on our classes each weekend.
Every competition weekend, Ignite Livestreams the competition, at no charge. We want to provide families and friends the option to virtually join to see their dancers perform.
No Deposit Down
We know it's been a crazy year and that is why you can reserve a spot for you and your dancers at any of our 2021 Tour cities with no deposit down until the early bird deadline (90 days prior) at which time we will ask you to reserve your spot with a monetary deposit.
Full Refunds due to COVID
If we have to cancel any event this season, due to COVID and we are unable to provide a rescheduled date that works for your studio's schedule, we will provide you with a full refund.
Ignite offers flexible payment plans up until 30 days before the event. This allows you to see your studio's balance in your DanceBug Account and make payments as frequently as you would like until the balance is paid in full. All balances must be paid 30 days before the first day of the competition.
Building the Dance Community
Positively building the Dance Community is a priority for Ignite. With our core values, we provide an uplifting atmosphere on and off stage for dancers to grow and thrive in.
Health and Safety
The Ignite Team continues to work diligently to keep dancers, families, and staff safe. The health and safety of all participants and attendees is a top priority. We are making every effort to minimize the risk to compete again while complying with local, state, and CDC guidelines. To learn more about what we are doing to keep our dancers and families safe, you can view our Health and Safety Protocols for 2021.
Professional Judges & Faculty
Our judges and faculty are not only dancers and performers, they are educators and are invested in the next generation of dancers. At Ignite, we aim to make each weekend one you will remember.
Teacher and Director of VIP Area
We know first hand how long dance competition and convention weekends can be. Teachers and Studio Owners will have access to our VIP room throughout the weekend filled with refreshments and snacks to keep you energized.
No more late-nights or early mornings
Ignite commits to no late-night awards show or starting before 8 AM. We will cap the number of routines that can register in each city to make this possible. We want our dancers and families to feel refreshed and recharged during and after a long weekend of competing.
Regional Title Competition
In every city, Ignite crowns Solo Title Winners. This competition is open to dancers competing in the Competitive or Elite category. Solo Title Winners will be invited to apply for our 2022 Ignite Ambassadorship.
Ignite holds an Improv Competition each weekend which provides the opportunity for dancers to showcase their musicality, technique, and performance. Dancers will compete in the categories of 12 & under and 13 & over. Winners of each category will be named as Regional Improv Winner and will be invited to apply for our 2022 Ignite Ambassadorship.
Ignite hands out Best in Category, Overall High Scores, Judges Awards, Top Choreography, and Technical Excellence throughout the weekend. Through these awards, we want to recognize the hard work and dedication the dancers and dance teachers put into each routine.
