The holidays are right around the corner, and as you prepare for everything from turkey traditions and gifts to major shopping holidays, it might feel like dance is drifting to the sidelines. Once Nutcracker and holiday recitals have passed, we need more dance! Showstopper’s latest tour addition is the perfect time to bring all of your holiday spirit to the stage.

Join Showstopper in its hometown, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for an all-new holiday tradition, the Showstopper Holiday Dance Classic Competition. Setup like a Showstopper regional competition with fun and festive extras, the Holiday Dance Classic is the final must-attend competition of the year!

Along with the expansive stages, LED screens, and Showstopper’s coveted trophies and medals, the Holiday Dance Classic will feature a holiday-themed Opening Number performed by 2023 Showstopper Finals All-Stars from across the country, and a holiday competition category for your snow, candy cane, and celebration-filled routines. Plus, the top Competitive-level soloist will qualify as All-Stars for 2024 Finals.

Beyond the competition, dancers and teachers can enjoy a visit from Santa, pink Christmas trees throughout the venue, and a merchandise sale. There will also be a holiday-themed Teacher Suite for sugarplum breaks between routines, a wine and cheese bar with an outdoor firepit, food trucks, and more!

The Holiday Dance Classic is December 9-10, 2023! Attending is as easy as registering with your studio at! You can even book your room through the Showstopper room block. See you soon, dancers!
