at DECAdance Nationals!

Did someone say... WATER PARK?!

We didn't choose just any venue for our first Nationals event on July 11-14, 2024. We believe in unique experiences and one-of-a-kind events where everyone goes home fulfilled.

That's why we chose Camelbak Lodge in the Poconos (PA) to close out our 2024 Celebration Tour. Our DECAdance Nationals event includes:

  • A resort package that INCLUDES parking, unlimited use of Camelback Lodge's Indoor Waterpark and discounted resort fees

  • Specialty classes and workshops from Relative Motion, Synergy Wellness and guest choreographers

  • Giveaways, scholarships and special Nationals awards offered in collaboration with our industry partners

  • Post-Event Recharge gathering for teachers and studio owners

  • Spirit Days and Dancer Only Events to encourage connection and comradery

  • Student Choreography: Student choreographers from Season 5 will work with our DECAdance choreographers for the Nationals Opening Number

  • Studio Dance Off: Every single attending studio invited to perform a group number

  • Legacy Cup: Performances from our six highest scoring groups of the season
