Take the Stage
At every Showstopper competition, brand new, high-definition, LED screens are the backdrops to your performances. Customized to match each routine, these screens are designed to make every moment on stage breathtaking. Showstopper ensures their professional, Marley dance floor stages are perfect by installing them by hand at every competition.
On and off stage, every moment of the competition is carefully planned and always on time. The competition schedule is broken down into 3-minute increments and available in the souvenir program book. You can also access your personalized schedule and studio's personalized schedules online and in the Showstopper App.
Are you looking for detailed feedback on your performances? Showstopper has the industry's top judges with years of experience in some of the world's greatest productions. From Broadway shows to master classes, they know what it takes to be the best of the best. Along with your scores, your studio will receive constructive audio feedback that is recorded live by the judges as they watch your performances.
That's not all! As you compete as a soloist at any of Showstopper's Regional Competitions, you are also auditioning for a spot in the Opening Number at Showstopper's National Finals.
