The Fred Astaire Dance Studios® World Cup Series gives our competing Amateur dancers an amazing way to be acknowledged, rewarded and awarded – automatically! When you compete at World Cup Series qualifying events, you’ll earn points for every entry. Throughout the year, there are over a dozen qualifying dance competitions. You’ll have fun competing with other Amateur dancers at your level from across the country, and dancing for a chance to win amazing prizes, trophies, swag bags and scholarships to upcoming Fred Astaire Dance Studios® competitions.
All three levels of Fred Astaire Dance Studios® Dance Competitions are included in the World Cup Series Competition Loyalty program:
- Participating Regionals – These one to three-day dance events are hosted by Fred Astaire Dance Studios® Regions across the country, and typically take place over a weekend. Our Regional dance competitions are open to students who dance at Fred Astaire Dance Studios® locations within that Region.
- NEW Inter-Regionals – Some of our best Regional competitions are now open to FADS Amateur dancers from across the country, so everyone can attend – for more fun, more entries, more friends to see, and more chances to earn WCS points!
- Nationals – Our renowned four to five-day National and World Championship events offer the highest WCS points potential, and are held in exciting vacation destinations such as Las Vegas, Orlando, and New Orleans.
With the World Cup Series Competition Loyalty Program, you can challenge yourself on the dance floor, “up” your dance skills by observing other dancers, explore fun destinations across the U.S., spend time with friends old & new… and get rewarded for it!
