Competition Team

Our STBDA Competition team is made up of members from our dance companies. Dancers may elect to become a competition team member and participate in two or more dance competitions each year. Some competitions will be accompanied by a dance convention which dancers must participate in as well. The focus of the competition team is perfecting a few pieces of choreography to be adjudicated, dancers will be encouraged to do their best and practice at home each week. Competition schedule will be released in the fall and rehearsals begin in September on alternating Fridays.

2020-2021 Competitions will look a bit different then past years, we are limiting group sizes and will offer solos, duets and trios as well to help maintain physical distance between dancers.  Block Schedules will be used, meaning all STBDA pieces will perform one after the next and we will be the only studio performing at that time slot.  When all pieces have performed dancers must leave the theater to allow cleaning time for the competition staff prior to the next studio beginning.

Competition Dates: 

Step Up 2 Dance:  3/26-3/28 Danvers, MA.  

Spirit of Dance Awards:  4/30-5/2 Waltham, MA.  Westin Hotel Waltham
