The Dance Effect Competition

TDE 2020 Competition Schedule is coming soon!! Be ready!

The Dance Effect Competitions are a unique, fun, fair and positive experience.  We strive to make everyone feel just as important no matter what skill level they bring to the stage.  TDE offers 3 levels of competitiveness: Desire, Ambition & Legacy.  We also have a Solo Motivational Title in which soloist may choose to enter, a Photogenic Contest and a Most Moving Costume Contest.  You can find more details on these and awards in the links below.

Also at every Competition we award a 5' tall trophy to the studio that shows the most Sportsmanship.  We look for dancers, teachers and parents to represent acts of kindness.  Whether you are lending a pair of shoes to another dancer, a dance mom helping fix a costume last minute, a teacher loaning a speaker or someone complementing another dancer's costume or dance - it all works to make a difference in helping one another.

​The Dance Effect takes pride in this day being for the dancers!  So we came up with Move Across the Floor.  Move Across the Floor takes place before every awards ceremony and allows you to do just that - Freestyle Across the Stage!  We have dancers, teachers, siblings and even dance dads take part in the fun!  This is a favorite to all that attend TDE Competitions!  You don't want to miss it!  

The Dance Effect Judges are handpicked!  TDE hires Judges who believe in building the dancers up while still giving them positive developmental feedback.  The Judges verbal critiques will accompany a video of the routine within a couple days of competition.
