Events -> Competitions


Ballroom competitions are exciting venues to test your dancing skills and experience the glitz of classic ballroom.

Similar to our showcases, entrants can compete in single dances, multi-dance challenges for prizes, and choreographed exhibition dances, in which the highest scoring couples in each division are awarded trophies. Entrants can also compete as amateur couples or with an instructor. Spectators are also permitted at many competitive events.

Competitions also offer a wealth of other activities to round out your ballroom getaway, which may include: delectible dinners catered by the hotel facility, seminars given by competitive ballroom pros, and exhibitions performed by special guest pro dancers.

Want to try competing for yourself? View the NDCA competitive event calendar HERE. Many competitions are run over a weekend or multiple days. With the dawn of remote work and learning, competitions are also going virtual, as well. Ask your instructor for availabilty and pricing.

Not interested in competing but still want to support our competitive students? Ask our instructors about which competitions they and their students will be attending, so you can come watch and encourage them and join in on the fun!
