SKILLS Sport-Dance Games™

SKILLS is not another dance competition!

We are the leading national alternative to studio dance competitions; our focus is on learning not winning.

Our business centers attention on the secondary, but emerging dance studio market, the recreational-community-after school enrichment student, with programs designed to increase enrollment, engage current students, and deliver financial studio success.

 

The games are a unique type of dance event for dance teams only, judges credentialed by test to adjudicate, 3 sections of play, a rubric based score system, developed to present another format for students to be successful and achieve.

SKILLS Sport-Dance Games can be scheduled in 10-week sessions for facilities-programs. The first 10-weeks the students learn the compulsory turn-jump sections in their participating facilities-programs. The second 10-weeks the students can participate in intramurals within their facilities or meets with other facilities-programs in their regional areas. Meets are held in school gymnasiums. SKILLS is designed to be a year-round enrollment product for dance education.
