Join us on our Season 5 Celebration Tour as we debut these exciting additions to the DECAdance experience:

  • Fully sprung birch wood O'Mara dance floor crafted just for DECAdance

  • First-aid and hydration stations at every event; designated family dressing areas and sensory sensitive spaces whenever possible

  • A fifth adjudicator designated just for Special Awards and to monitor all routines to ensure they align with our policies for each genre and skill level

  • Legacy Cup for the six top-scoring advanced group pieces of the entire season (three for 12 and under, three for 13+); dancers are invited to perform at our DECADANCE NATIONALS EVENT in Poconos, PA when we'll also announce the Legacy Cup winner!

And of course, your favorite staples that make up the DECAdifference remain constant!

  • COMPLIMENTARY MEDIA with a designated password protected link to all photos and videos for each studio (same link for your studio for every event - from Nationals 2024 to Season 6 and onward!)

  • Designated space for teachers and studio owners to regroup and recharge with complimentary coffee, water, drinks and grab 'n' go snacks. We even provide meals for teachers and studio owners the same way we feed our team!

  • Four judge panel made up of specialty judges who offer genre-specific feedback during critiques (which are even offered LIVE for soloists!)

  • DECAdistinctive scoring with genre-specific weighted technique scores (read more about our proprietary system here!)

  • And of course - LIMITED CAPACITY EVENTS that ensure safety (and fun!) for all DECAdance participants and don't include sunrise start times or late night awards
