USA Dance is proud to announce the return of the National Collegiate DanceSport Championships to be held March 30th and March 31st of 2019 in Chicago, IL.
We’ve kept what made this event so special last year and added new features based on your feedback. This year’s festivities feature:
- More – for less! Dance as much as you like. We’ve continued to hold no restrictions on number of entries and we’re keeping the discounted inaugural entry fee rates.
- A New Venue – Held at the Laboratory Schools of the University of Chicago, we’re thrilled to partner with local schools in the area and provide a more traditional college-competition feel to competitors.
- Tighter and Unique Schedule – The new venue means less food restrictions, so we’ll be running a tighter schedule that ends earlier. We’re proud to keep our fantastic evening session featuring open dancers, ample social dancing, redesigned team matches, and alumni events.
- Learn and grow! Attend dance seminars throughout the weekend with top coaches. Participation is FREE for competitors.
- Win and earn – Last year we raised over $20,000 for scholarships, gifts, and financial assistance for competitors. We hope to do even better this year. There will be almost $5,000 up for grabs to the top 12 teams of both team matches!
- Team based and inclusive –The team matches allow for maximum participation and parity. National team rankings will be calculated and updated throughout the competition.
- Free photos – photography will be taken throughout the event and distributed for all participants to use and share – absolutely free!
- Free Participation Gift – last year’s NCDC water bottles were a big hit. We hope you’ll enjoy this year’s mystery participation gift just as much!
- No membership requirement – USA Dance members will receive a discount on registration. Shameless plug, did you know that membership in USA Dance pays for itself? You should consider giving it a try!
- …and so much more!
