Building the Dance Community
Positively building the Dance Community is a priority for Ignite Dance Competition. We provide an uplifting atmosphere on and off stage for dancers to grow and thrive in.
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.
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.
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.
No more late nights or early mornings
Ignite commits to no late-night award shows or early morning starts. We 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.
Mental Wellness Certified
We always have at least 3 staff members onsite that have gone through Danscend's training and are Certified Mental Wellness Dance Educators.
In every city, Ignite will crown Regional Champions, our solo title competition. This competition is open to dancers competing in the Competitive or Elite category.
Ignite holds an Improv Competition each weekend which provides the opportunity for dancers to showcase their musicality, technique, and performance. Dancers will compete in their age divisions of Mini/Petite, Junior, Teen, and Senior. If a division is smaller than 5 dancers, age divisions may be combined. Winners of each category will be named as Regional Improv Winner.
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.
