A fresh new take on dance competitions. Our mission is to provide dancers of all levels with a fair and positive venue to showcase their talents. These weekends should be about so much more than a trophy; it’s about an experience where feedback and growth are just as important as a score. We are here to inspire and ignite your passion and love for dance!

More Than Just a Trophy

To our Act 1 Talent Family,

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our studios for their support during these unprecedented times. As we continue to navigate through this difficult situation we have felt an abundance of support from you, our Act 1 Talent family. The safety of you, your families and our staff will always be our top priority. Although we do hope to see you dancing on our Act 1 Talent stage soon we will continue to do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, our Act 1 Talent office will be closed through April 30th. However our staff will be working at home to answer your questions and concerns. The best way to reach us during this time is by emailing info@act1talent.com.

As of today the following events have been postponed; Minneapolis, San Diego, Austin & Oklahoma City. Any updates regarding postponed cities, rescheduled events and updates for any upcoming cities will be sent directly to registered studios. This is our best option to provide dancers and their families with the most up to date and accurate information. Currently our office has date options reserved for postponed events. However, with the fluid situation we will hold off releasing dates until we feel we can safely and confidently move forward with these rescheduled events. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work alongside our venues, most of which are closed or working on limited hours. It is our intent to see you dancing at Act 1 Talent again soon. At this time we are confident that our National Finals 2020 will continue as planned. All studios registered for our 2020 regional events will pre-qualify for National Finals 2020.

It is during times like this we are reminded just how strong the dance community is. We are proud to stand beside you as we together weather this unique situation. To see everyone step up, adjust, and keep our kids engaged has been overwhelming. As we have continued to stay in contact with studios we have been humbled by the support everyone has offered, it will not be forgotten.

We cannot wait to see you light up our Act 1 Talent stage again soon. In the meantime keep dancing with us through our website. Visit www.act1talent.com/makemagictogether for combos, warm ups, exercises and more. From our family to yours, we wish you health and safety during these times. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
