The Ultimate Challenge

America's Ultimate Studio

Recognizing versatility in the training of your dancers 

 

At American Dance Awards, we value the wide range of quality dance education offered to your students. Many schools strive to create a well-rounded program, and we feel that should be rewarded! Each year at our National Championships, one studio will win a $1,000 cash prize and be named America’s Ultimate Studio. 

Could it be you?

 

To qualify, your studio must have at least ONE entry in each of the following 10 categories (at both Regionals and Nationals):

 

12 & Under

Tap

Jazz

Ballet

Contemporary or Lyrical or Modern

Hip-Hop or Musical Theatre or Acro

 

13 & Over

Tap

Jazz

Ballet

Contemporary or Lyrical or Modern

Hip-Hop or Musical Theatre or Acro

 

At Nationals, you will nominate the 10 (ten) routines from these prerequisite entries that you would like to go toward your composite score (using scores from the National Championship competition). You may only denote 1 (one) from each age and genre to be considered. For example, you will not have multiple 13 & over Contemporary scores factoring in. You will denote which routines you will enter through our Ultimate Studio Nomination Form. This must be submitted prior to the start of National Championship competition.

 

The top 5 studio nominees will be announced prior to the 13 & over Dance-Off,

with the Ultimate Studio being awarded at the 13 & Over Gala!
