It’s a Party at the Kalahari

When we’re in Ohio, Showstopper dances at the Kalahari Water Park Resort. You’ll be dancing through the resort all weekend! When you aren’t tapping or twirling with our fabulous instructors, Ohio’s largest indoor waterpark is full of adventures, excitement, and experiences. Even lunch breaks are an adventure when the Kalahari’s dining options have something for everyone with numerous different dining options!

Some of Our Favorite Things to Do Outside of Class:

  • Splash around on endless water rides
  • Get lost in 100s of the best arcade games
  • Experience mini-bowling, blacklight mini-golf, laser tag, 7-D motion theater, and more!
  • Enjoy dining options like B-Lux Grill and Bar, Marketplace Buffet, Ivory Coast Restaurant, and the Candy Hut!

Dance It Out

With classes for Juniors, Seniors, and Tweens every hour, the weekend is packed from Saturday morning through Sunday evening with all of your favorite dance styles! From kickline Rockettes style to funky jazz and enough hip hop to keep you dancing all weekend, there’s something for every dancer. Feeling adventurous? You can also explore bonus classes in voice, acting, song and dance, leaps and turns, cheerleading, auditioning, and more!

What to Expect:

  • Extra-large, cushioned, professional dance floors
  • The best Tween program with innovative classes and time for creative expression with arts and crafts
  • Free autograph poster for every dancer
  • No observation fees
