The highest scoring productions will compete in a dance-off to determine overall champions. The Production Battle of the Best is for line/production numbers. Judges will select routines from each award session to return on Sunday for our Callback Challenge. 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. The highest score from each category and age group will be recognized on stage during the Awards Showcase.

Master Classes are are open to all for a nominal fee. Individual Super Star skills competitions are also on the schedule. The event includes our trademark "Purple Party" Celebration Dance.
