Don’t let the downtime between competition seasons drag on! Dance conventions are an easy and effective way to brush up on your skills, learn new ones, and make new friends! Dancing is an art, and artists are always striving to be better and better. What better way to do that than to surround yourself with talented dancers and choreographers that can share their tips and experience with you?

1. Learn From the Hottest Choreographers in the Industry!

Our faculty can be seen on the sets of SYTYCD, America’s Got Talent, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and Glee. You can see their amazing performances on awards shows, in today’s top music videos, movies, commercials, Broadway shows, ballet companies, and more! Each of our instructors offers something unique and provides a different perspective.
You will finish the weekend feeling inspired, motivated, and educated!

2. Dance on Extra-Large, Professional Dance Floors

Ballroom floors aren’t always safe for dancers to dance on. We bring our own professional, dance floors to ensure everyone has a safe and fun time! Don’t worry about feeling squished, with plenty of flooring in each room there is space for everyone to bust a move! Stuck in the back? We have large monitors on the side of each stage displaying our instructors so you don’t miss a beat!

3. Free Bonus Classes

YES – FREE! We know you’re all super well-rounded and that your talents probably aren’t limited to dance, so we offer tons of bonus classes at no extra charge! From pom pom and belly dancing to acting and voice, we have something for everyone!

4. The Best Tween Program Ever!

Our tween program is a dance program specifically designed for 6 to 9 year olds! At Showstopper, we offer a unique and original dance program that allows younger dancers to express their individuality, build confidence, and most of all: have fun! This program is for young dancers who may have started competing but aren’t quite ready yet for the full convention – they’re in be-“tween!” While we strive to make the weekend incredibly fun for you, you are still learning under the best instructors in the industry—we just specifically design the classes for dancers ages 6 to 9! Not only will you learn jazz, tap, hip hop, song & dance, and even pom pom, you will also get to participate in fun and creative arts and crafts projects! And if you thought the weekend couldn’t get better, all “tweens” get a free gift bag!

5. Shop the Latest and Most Fabulous Showstopper Merchandise

Don’t forget to leave room in your suitcase! Every convention weekend is an opportunity to get dancewear, accessories, and more for prices as fabulous as the clothes themselves! Don’t forget to pick up a Showstopper souvenir shirt to remember all the fun you had.

6. Teachers Receive a Free Welcome Gift AND Get a Free Hotel Room for Every 15 Students They Bring!

Teachers get free welcome gifts and a free hotel room night for every 15 paid students (based on our advertised room rates at our host hotel). So, if you register 30 dancers, we’ll reimburse you the cost of 2 nights at our host hotel (no matter where you stay!) You’re responsible for booking your own hotel room, but either way you’ll automatically be sent a reimbursement check the week before the convention based on your registration numbers.

7. No Observation Fees! Ever.

At Showstopper, there are no parents observation fees. So, bring the whole squad! We want all your dance moms and dance dads to be able to watch their kids dance, learn, and have the best weekend of their lives.

8. Attend One-of-a-Kind Teacher’s Seminars

Get tips on everything from insuring your studio and writing to creating the most fabulous competition costumes and creating a powerful social media presence. This is also the perfect opportunity to network with other teachers and to share ideas for everything from lesson plans to lobby decor! Our talented seminar speakers have ideas for every single detail of running a dance studio.
