Advanced division dancers who receive a minimum of a High Gold at regionals with their solo are eligible to compete for the most prestigious solo dancer award at nationals! Dancers will be scored on their solo in addition to a platform piece and interview question. Participating dancers are still eligible for overall awards and will compete for HD Performer of the Year at a separate scheduled event during nationals week to perform their platform piece and answer their interview question.
What is a platform piece…great question! HD wants their performers to choose a cause that they are passionate about and want to bring awareness to on our nationals stage. Dancers will perform and additional choreographed short solo (1 min. 30 sec. maximum) with a piece that they feel best embodies their platform. Eligible dancers will need to register (see below for registration information) by May 25, 2019 for an additional $50 entry fee.
Registration will open in 2019!
