Rainbow has been called “the competition with a 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 low-stress environment, unique awards, three 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.
Our unique awards offer much more than just a placement score. From the Al Gilbert Award for tap excellence to our prestigious Dancer of the Year, 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, offering outside opportunities in the dance community. Each year, several Rainbow contestants are selected as “All Star Dancers” and receive an invitation to attend the New York City Dance Experience. These All-Stars travel to New York City 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. Rainbow also awards scholarships for students to participate in the popular KAR Dance Convention at each regional and national event.
