AT ARTISTS EMERGE
EDUCATION + TRAINING ARE #1
As Canada’s first Competition & Convention, we are proud to offer relevant, working professionals and educators as part of our esteemed panel of adjudicators. Our Headliners offer insight and give great feedback to our dancers and their choreographers to take their dancing to the next level. We have classes for every age division and discipline, including classes specifically designed for teachers and choreographers. Prior to the Finals, we host a full day dance convention so the dancers get a chance to work with the faculty and incorporate what they learn into their performances.
Cash, Prizes & Scholarships
We only hire the industry’s most reputable and qualified professionals to adjudicate our events.
Our judging panel is comprised of two multi-disciplined adjudicators and two international street dance adjudicators to provide meaningful, specialized, and relevant feedback to each dance discipline. We host a Multi-Disciplined finals and a separate Street Dance finals as we believe they are two extremely different categories of dance, and we want to respect all dance disciplines.
