2021 Regional Competitions

MA Dance conducts 8 Regional, 3 Classic competitions, and 3 Virtual competitions throughout the United States.

We have the most respected and prestigious competitions in America. Typically, our competitions involve from 35 to 100 teams. Categories of the Dance competition include: team & officer, jazz, hip hop, prop, novelty, military, pom, high kick, lyrical, modern, show production, open and specialty. We also have duet, trio, small ensemble, large ensemble and solo competitions.

MA Dance Power Competitions

This is a new solo and ensemble competition which will be based on the style of the “World of Dance” show. A live performance in front of three judges who will immediately give oral critiques to the performer/s and an immediate score. The performer/s will then proceed to the awards table to receive their MA Dance Power Olympic style medal. Only the performer, parents, and director will be allowed in the performance area. This allows for social distancing and minimum exposure to other dancers.

COVID-19 Update

MA is adding a Virtual Competition option to our other style championships for those teams who may be prohibited from travel.  It is priced at 25% off the Regional pricing.  We will provide an upload site for each competition when you register.  All uploads must be received 2 weeks prior to the contest date.  Awards will be posted to our social media sites.

All of our Regional and Classic competitions will hopefully be in-person contests, however, if due to Covid-19 we must cancel, then we will immediately transfer your entries to a virtual platform and you will receive a 25% fee reimbursement credit.  To be prepared for this we are requesting all entries to upload a video of their performances at least 2 weeks prior to the competition date.  We will provide an upload site for each competition when you register.  If this occurs the awards will be posted to our social media sites.
