Going into our 18th season, Platinum National Dance Competition provides dancers a positive, inspiring experience, while also delivering an organized, on time, and entertaining experience for Studio Owners, Teachers, and Parents alike. We pride ourselves on leading with positivity first. We offer adjudications, overall awards, special judges awards, choreography awards, sportsmanship awards, top studio awards, and top honors to the most entertaining act of the weekend. Our competition has 3 levels, and we encourage our judging panel to bump dances into an appropriate level based on their experience. We are a trustworthy competition leading the industry in setting the standards for today's dance competition.
Now in our 5th season, the Platinum Dance Collective is an inspiring 3-day Competition/Convention event. Our faculty is focused on providing exceptional education with age and level appropriate curriculum. Classes are broken into 4 age groups on Saturday and Sunday with additional open classes on Friday night. There is also a dedicated Teacher Room with classes geared towards Teachers. All registered Teachers are FREE, without a minimum number of dancers required. Competition occurs on Friday and Saturday evenings. There is a Closing Show on Sunday following classes that includes an Opening Number performance by dancers who learned the routine over the weekend, scholarship presentations, Solo Battles, and encore performances from some of the Competition numbers.
The Platinum Dance Experience is our 1-Day Convention occurring in the Fall, taught by our education-focused Faculty of Platinum Judges and Staff.
