National Ballroom Dance Competitions are an important and exciting element of every Fred Astaire Dance Studios calendar! Our branded National Dance Competitions are held annually at glamorous resort venues in vacation destinations across the country (in 2021, locales include New Orleans LA, Las Vegas NV, and Orlando FL). These events offer our Students incredible opportunities to compete alongside dancers at their level from across the country, to meet new friends & spend time with old ones, to travel… and have LOTS of fun! Whether you’re a seasoned dance competitor, a less experienced dancer looking to bring your confidence and dance skills to the next level, or if you simply plan to be in the area and would like to watch a Session (Spectator Tickets are available at the Event Registration Desk for every National Competition!), there’s lots of fun and excitement awaiting you.
