Welcome to Flashdance Dance Championships!

Flashdance 2016 was another amazing year with incredibly talented dancers and over $110,000 in cash and prizes awarded. We want to thank the dancers, teachers, studio owners, and parents who continue to attend and support our dance competitions year after year, it is you that have made this possible, and we truly appreciate it and we hope that you will continue your support and join us at one of our venues for 2017.

The changes we made for 2017 will benefit all participants, studio owners, parents and family. We have daily raffles, Overall Cash awards for Top Studio. 2 Flashdance Cup Awards, one for highest scoring Solo/Duo/Trio and one for Groups, Lines/Ext Lines. We have a professional MC that makes each award session fun, exciting and rewarding for all. We have a backstage manager to ensure we run on time, that all dancers are signed in and ready to perform at their scheduled times enabling us to run smoothly.

Each year our mission is to provide a dance experience that is unique, fun, stress-free, and rewarding, where everyone who attends leaves with memories to last a lifetime.

As we approach our 19th season, we are hard at work to ensure that we continue to present a competition where dancers of all ages can display their talent in a fair, positive, and uplifting environment. We are committed to providing an atmosphere that allows the dancers to improve their stage presence and showmanship, boost their self-confidence, and expose them to new choreography keeping the creation of art alive and flourishing.

Thanks again to all the studios who participated in 2016 for making it a year to remember and I hope that you will once again be a part of the Flashdance experience in our 2017 season. We invite you to join us and help to create more memories as we share in the celebration that is DANCE!
