Competitions and Showcases are a regular part of Fred Astaire Dance Studios yearly calendar.
At local, Regional or National competitions, students enter at levels appropriate to their experience and teacher-student teams rival each other in spirited contests.

At competitions students meet, mingle, and compete with other student dancers. Beautiful Bronze, Silver, or Gold medallions are awarded at the national championships.
Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and the Bahamas are frequent locations for these gala national events.
Participating in our competitions gives every student – and student/teacher dance team – the opportunity to progress more rapidly and become a better dancer sooner.
Showcases are designed for students who find performance dancing exciting. Special choreography is incorporated in solo or group routines to suit each student’s ability and interest.
They often take place in a public theater where the lights, curtains, green room, etc. provide an element of the theatrical.
Participating in a Showcase is a long remembered experience, and something that many students derive pleasure in year after year.
