The Final Callback Dance Off
The highest scoring Junior (11 & younger) and Senior (12 & older) group/line from each participating studio is invited back to the stage to compete for top awards before the final awards session.
Dancers improvise a one minute solo in the style of their choosing. Dancers can choose from Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical and Hip Hop, Wanna Dance? staff will select songs. Judges will select their top three dancers in each age group (Junior 11 & younger and Senior 12 & older) who will compete again in the Final Callback Dance-Off.
Our adjudicators teach master classes in the morning prior to the competition. This is a great way to get in-class feedback from the adjudicators and a great way to get warmed up for the day! Studio directors will receive class sign up information approximately two months before the competition.

Competing against yourself
Soloists may not compete against themselves. Additional solos in the same discipline can be placed in the age category up from their own. Duets/Trios/Groups/Lines must be 50% different dancers to compete in the same category.
A tentative schedule will be sent to each studio approximately two months prior to the competition start date. Any changes must be requested by the studio director.
