THE XCITE DANCE
COMPETITION EXPERIENCE

XCITE Dance is all about opportunity, fairness, value and fun!
 

If you are a dance school with groups, trios, duos or soloists who want to compete in a professional
yet friendly and welcoming environment, then this is the UK dance competition for you.  

We've gathered feedback from dance teachers, dancers and their parents,
added this to years of competition knowledge and created an event which works for everyone.
It is an experience not to be missed!

Scroll down for an overview of how it all works.

 

DANCE TEACHERS

You can expect...

  • a smoothly-run event, with easy administration via DanceBUG, which lets you concentrate on preparing and watching your students' dances;

  • a designated sitting area for teachers, reserved for the length of your booking (size venue dependent); and

  • a VIP experience which acknowledges you choosing our competition over others. Thank you!

DANCERS

You can expect...

  • a high-energy, action-packed American-style competition where you can both perform & learn;

  • fair judging with valuable video feedback, helping your future development; and

  • a medal for everyone, with additional awards and brand giveaways, making it an event you will love and remember.

PARENTS

You can expect...

  • a professionally run competition which values each and every dancer;

  • to take home digital memories of your child's day without breaking the bank, through the easily accessible DanceBUG app; and 

  • a happy, confident child after our event.
