About Rainbow Dance Competition

Cue the confetti as Rainbow celebrates 30 years of heart and soul gracing its stage!! As a leader in the industry for three decades, Rainbow National Dance Competition is thrilled to begin a new and exciting season, which will mark our 30th anniversary! With our exceptional events and impeccable service, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Rainbow family!

Rainbow has been called "the competition with heart" for a good reason. Rainbow has never lost sight of the fact that its success is owed to the hard working teachers and studio owners that appreciate a fair, fun, organized and on-time competition. From its welcoming atmosphere, unique awards, numerous levels of competition, online registration, and state of the art judging and scoring, Rainbow aspires to deliver a quality event to dancers, directors, teachers and parents alike.

When it comes to competitions and conventions, we understand that there are many to choose from and here at Rainbow, we are committed to providing our competitors with the best experience possible! We take pride in our digital online critiques from an elite panel of judges who are devoted to sharing their extensive knowledge. Furthermore, your dancers will enjoy interacting with our enthusiastic and caring staff that proudly uphold professional production etiquette and core values.

Our unique awards offer much more than just a placement score. From the Al Gilbert Award for tap excellence, our prestigious Dancer of the Year solo competition, and even our esteemed Choreography awards, Rainbow looks to give our hard-working dancers and teachers their much deserved recognition at each competition. We also invest in our students continuing education by offering multiple scholarships and invitations providing exclusive performance opportunities that reach far beyond the competition weekend.

Each year, several Rainbow contestants are selected as “All Star Dancers” and receive an invitation to attend the New York City Dance Experience as well as our Hollywood Dance Experience. These All-Stars can travel to the Big Apple for a one-of-a-kind event where they attend a series of master classes, meet and study with the world-famous Rockettes, see Broadway shows, and of course, tour the city’s most popular attractions. Additionally, dancers can join us in California at the Hollywood Dance Experience, where they immerse themselves in the Hollywood dance scene through educational workshops, dance video shoots, master classes with the hottest celebrity choreographers and an exciting excursion in DisneyLand!

In 2019, Rainbow was proud to introduce our Limitless Starz level specifically designed to celebrate dancers with exceptional abilities. Rainbow believes that every dancer is an individual and deserves to enjoy their special moment in the spotlight! We cannot wait to highlight the talents of our Limitless Starz during the upcoming season!

We are also honored to continue our official sponsorship of the Industry Dance Awards and Cancer Benefit Show. At each Regional, awards are given to the highest overall scoring Elite Starz Groups and Lines from the 12 and Over Age Divisions in 6 Outstanding Performance Awards Categories. This amazing awards show proudly raises cancer awareness and inspires the generosity of the dance community to come together for a worthy cause.

We are thankful to be able to offer a memorable performance opportunity for dancers to showcase their talent and accomplishments in front of industry leaders and their loved ones. Rainbow prides itself on creating an ambiance where studio owners, teachers, students and parents will thrive. Nurturing our youth in the competitive field of dance takes effective communication, organization and a supportive atmosphere. Rainbow has a reputation of creating that positive setting for dancers of all levels. We look forward to seeing you in 2023 so we may be a part of YOUR dancer's personal journey toward greatness! Let the celebration begin!!

Love, Light and Rainbows,
Rainbow Dance
