Is there anything better than a dance convention? Frankly, we don't think so. Although we love getting a guest teacher to come to our studio for a masterclass every so often, there's just something so exciting about packing up our leotards and dance shoes and heading to a convention for the weekend. Here are 7 reasons why dance conventions are, without a doubt, the greatest things ever.


They Give You a Reason to Road Trip with Friends

A few hours in the car jamming out to our favorite tunes with our best friends? Count us in!

You Meet People from All Over

Not only do you get to reunite with your friends from other states, but you also get to meet a whole bunch of new dancers.

You Discover New Types of Choreography 

Dance conventions are the perfect time to try out new styles and tricks.

You Get to Learn from the Best of the Best

At dance conventions, you get to learn from the biggest names in the business. Oh heyyy Travis Wall! What's up Mandy Moore?!

...And Usually Get Photo Ops with Them

A picture with Travis and you for the 'gram is bound to make your friends at home jealous.

You Get Loads of Advice and Inspiration

Conventions are the best time to soak up all the wisdom from the teachers and other dancers around you.

Sometimes They Make it a Small Competition 

When they decide to judge the convention and make it into a mini competition, all bets are off! Who doesn't love a friendly rivalry?
