Get ready for the 2017 DANZEOFF Convention Experience!

What is the DANZEOFF Convention?

The DANZEOFF convention is an exciting opportunity for the best and brightest young dance talent in the United States to come together to show off their dance skills and learn new ones. Our dance convention will feature exciting classes in all types of dance including ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, lyrical, modern, musical theater, step, and tap. In order to best serve all of our convention attendees, the classes have been broken up into age ranges so that all participants will be working and growing their talents alongside others who are around the same level as they are. Find out how the age groups are divided here.

Who Are the Instructors?

The DANZEOFF instructors are professional dancers and teachers with years of experience in their respective fields. Some have worked on Broadway while others have danced in movies and music videos. Read more about some of them here.

Scholarship Opportunites

In addition to all of the fun and informative dance classes, we’ll also provide numerous scholarship opportunities from The Dance Theatre of Harlem DTH, Jones Haywood, and Mark Morris.

Where is the Convention?

We want to make sure that everyone who comes to the DANZEOFF 2017 dance convention and competition enjoys themselves and has the opportunity to experience a great time outside of the convention, so our event will be hosted at the beautiful Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington D.C. Located just minutes from the U.S. Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial, this facility is perfect for handling all of our convention-goers and their families. Get rates for the convention here.

The DANZEOFF Competition

While taking classes with top dance instructors would make DANZEOFF the premier dance convention of the year, you’ll also have the opportunity to compete in the best dance competition around. The DANZEOFF national dance competition allows dancers to compete for first, second, and third place prizes, cash awards, and scholarships. It also allows them to be seen by top professionals in the entertainment industry, including agents from some of the biggest agencies in the business.

Categories and Age Groups for the Competition

Competition categories are broken into age groups, much like the convention itself, and dance styles. Some of the styles in which participants can compete in include hip hop, jazz, step, tap, ballet, contemporary, lyrical, musical theater, and modern.

The prices for signing up for this incredible competition can be found here and are based on group sizes. There are competitions for solo dancers all the way up to dance crews of 26 or more.

What is There to Do For Parents?

During this event we’re offering free hip hop and zumba classes to parents. We believe it’s important for parents to share in some of the activities that their kids enjoy. And while these classes are parents only, hopefully your family will become one that loves to dance and have fun together. Find out more here!
