The DX Studio Dance Nationals is an open competition that includes a semi-formal Awards Banquet Gala recognizing individual achievements of dancers, [All American & Super Star]  directors, and teachers, along with, academic excellence, as well as, the announcement of Distinguished Leaders, National Choreographer of the Year, and National Teacher of the Year honors.

The highest scoring routines will compete in a dance-off to determine overall champions. There will be two separate events. The Xtreme Dance-Off is for small and large groups. The Production Battle of the Best is for line/production numbers. Solo, duo, and trio finalists from DX Regional events [Amaze, Majestic, and Eclipse] will be invited to take part in our Parade of Stars special performance too. You definitely won't want to miss it.

DX will also offer the All American Talent & Scholastic program at the Studio Nationals. Individuals submit transcripts, resumes, and essays, prior to arrival, and then take part in a private interview with judges, on-site and compete their solo. The All American honor recognizes the individuals who encompass the entire package; talent, academics, and personality.

Master Classes are are open to all for a nominal fee. Individual Super Star skills competitions [leap,turn, jump and kick] are also on the schedule. The event will conclude with our trademark "Purple Party" Celebration Pizza Party & Dance.
