Let’s Do It

Competitions give students that 'mark on the wall' to drive their dancing goals. So for those who have the drive to compete, we offer a variety of ballroom dance competition opportunities across the region.  Students may compete Pro/Am with your instructor or Am/Am with another student.  

You are in great hands at DanceSportVA- Our teachers are former professional competitors and former champions themselves.

DanceSportVA is also host to the annual Virginia Beach Dance Challenge. Get all the information on this event below.
