Uproar Dance Competition was formed from years of experience within competition dance. There’s a new level of excitement we bring to the stage with HUGE prizes and EXCEPTIONAL production value. We are proud to be changing the way dance is competed, and are thrilled to launch our first tour in 2021.
Uproar will offer an exceptional product, with state-of-the-art lighting, projections, sound systems, and production value. We strive to bring the best experience in the industry to our customers, and know from our years of experience in all sides of competition dance that the experience is even more valuable than the trophy. All competing dancers will have the opportunity to be selected for an exclusive photoshoot with Luckyleo Dancewear as scouts will be present at all of our events.
With years of experience teaching in competition dance, we know how hard a competition weekend can be for the teachers and studio owners. That’s why we are bringing the Uproar Lions Den lounge on tour with us. Featuring snacks and drinks, this will be a safe haven to allow dance educators to relax and take some time to unwind during the hustle and bustle that can be a dance competition.
At Uproar Dance Competition we want to foster an environment that allows dance students to thrive and be encouraged to continue their training at their home studio. Too often in this industry, you will see dancers be tempted by the bright lights and greener pastures. Uproar Dance Competition encourages well-trained dancers to stay the course with the Uproar Training Scholarship. One winner per city will receive $1000 towards their dance tuition for next season*(1)*. This scholarship is non-transferrable and only applicable to the studio the winning student is enrolled in on the date of competition.
*Studios must register a minimum of 40 routines for students to qualify to compete for the Uproar Regional Championship. Registration for the Uproar Regional Championship audition is only an additional $15 per dancer and they must also complete a solo to be eligible.
Pride of Uproar Award
The Pride of Uproar Award will be given to the studio who wins the Studio Tournament. This tournament will pit the best routines from the weekend against each other in head-to-head competition. Studios can only compete each routine once in this multi-tiered tournament, so they must pick their entries carefully. To qualify for entry in the Pride of Uproar Competition, a studio must have at least 20 entries in the event. Only group routines can be chosen to compete in the Pride of Uproar Tournament. After one winner is declared from each head-to-head competition round, the winner moves on to the next round. Each round a new routine must be competed, but you can pick any genre or age division! Rankings are determined by the studio’s top scoring routine of the weekend. After all head to head competitions are down to just two studios, one Pride of Uproar Champion will be selected. The studio that wins Pride of Uproar will receive $500 in registration credit for the next season of Uproar, and a Pride of Uproar Championship Celebration at their studio!
*Uproar Dance Competition will provide the studio with up to $200 reimbursement for the Championship Celebration
Uproar Trainee Showcase
The Uproar Trainee Showcase is a chance for the youngest dancers (ages 3-7) to have a special event just for them, with a less-intimidating performance opportunity for those not quite ready for the big stage. We will leave the house lights a bit brighter, tone down the lighting and turn the music down a bit. The dancers will be allowed to follow a teacher standing side stage, and will be given participation certificates immediately following their performance, meaning no waiting around for awards!
Our goal is to foster the genuine love of performing more than the desire to achieve a certain award, and feel this is a great performance opportunity for young dancers.
