Consistency in judging is at times lacking in the dance competition world. Some judges come from a teaching world with certificates in adjudication, while others come from the professional or celebrity dance world. Each judge has something to offer the dancers onstage, and creating quality consistency is key. This is why we are implementing a head judge system in 2019. Our highly trained team adjudicator will travel to all locations. Their only duty will be to ensure that our judging system is consistent and that each of our guest judges is providing the highest quality audio adjudications and scoring for your dancers.

We are also proud to offer...

  • FREE OPEN MASTER WORKSHOPS in each location!!! (Time permitting)
  • FREE APP for all attendees!!! Includes full schedule, live schedule, viewing of your photos & videos.  Reasonably priced printed programs also available at events.
  • FREE LIVE STREAMING at ALL events!!!

SDC Encore Challenge

Judges will choose a select few routines in the Petite/Junior and Teen/Senior/Adult category to dance again. Routines chosen will not necessarily be top scores/overalls but chosen based on “ENTERTAINMENT VALUE”. One routine will be presented and recognized with the SDC ENCORE AWARD.

Scholarships will also be awarded as well. SDC promises to continue to provide amazing opportunities for your dancers in every way that we possibly can. We will ultimately bridge the GAP as much as possible between “professional” and “studio” by giving your students opportunities to get their foot in the door with industry professionals.
