Studio Showdown

The studio showdown is similar to battle of the bands. Each studio will be competing to win the trophy and the title of “Floorplay Fanatics”, and not to mention, it’s all for a good cause!

The studio needs a minimum of 4 dancers (8 maximum), 2/4 of which are pros and 2/4 are amateurs. Get as creative as you’d like, but make sure you’re dancing non traditional roles. Dips, tricks, and lifts are allowed! A combination of songs is allowed, but must not exceed 2 minutes.

The Second portion of this event will be a Jack and Jill, a judge will draw the “Fun dance” from a hat then each team will choose their best pro/am couple to represent that style of dance. The Jack and Jill will be done twice so each studio gets maximum opportunity to win!

Event Registration

Thank you for your interest, but Online Registration is now closed.

Registration is still available at the door.

What is a Fun Dance Competition?

An opportunity to take our classic dance styles and add a twist.
Our 7 dance categories are the following:

REVERSE ROLE TANGO

Lady’s lead and men follow, can do American, international, or Argentine tango.

JACK N JILL WEST COAST SWING

You sign up individually, and get a random partner to compete with. ANYONE can win this one. No professionals allowed in this category.

3 PERSON SALSA

Any combinations of gender. We had every possible one last year and it was quite fun to watch!!

STRAIGHT LEG SAMBA

As you all know, Samba is a dance that stresses the softening of knees. We challenge our competitors to keep your legs straight the entire time!

SAME SEX RUMBA

Same gender partners. Can do international or American style.

70's DISCO HUSTLE

Normal hustle, but unique choreography and costumes encouraged!!

VARIED TEMPO WALTZ

The DJ will be speeding up and slowing down the waltz as you are dancing.

INTERPRETIVE PASO DOBLE

Espani Cani will play, and anything goes whether you dance traditional ballroom paso doble or dress up as a bull and matador!

No Hands Foxtrot

As simple as that! The traditional frame is not allowed and you will need to find other ways to connect with your partner to get around the room.

Competition Rules

HUMOR IS A MUST AND COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED!

NO pro/pro couples are allowed, but pro/am and am/am are welcomed!!! Remember, technique is only about 1/4 of the judging so anyone can win. Prizes will be given in each category and money raised in the competition will be going to our charity. Reminder: this is all for fun and anyone can do it!

NOTE: all routines will be approximately 1 min 30 sec long.
