Shake The Ground, always an innovator in dance education, is now offering the Ultimate Showdown Challenge
Solos competing with contemporary, tap or hip-hop routines and Group entries will be closely watched by our judges to see if they have that extra punch to catch their attention. Extraordinary stand out soloist and groups will be given a “Fast Pass” qualification certificate and automatically be entered in the Showdown that takes place at Nationals.
Any competing Soloist that stands out to our judges will have an opportunity to be selected to enter the Ultimate Showdown Challenge.

Master Teachers will teach a choreography to chosen dancers during a special Nationals Mentor Class. Dancers perform the new choreography with their master teacher during the Nationals gala. Judges select THE ULTIMATE DANCER and announce the winners in each dance style at our 2022 Nationals Awards Ceremony.
Exceptional group pieces are chosen at regional competitions. Master Teachers will teach a choreography to chosen groups during a private one hour mentor class at Nationals.
