Shake the Ground just celebrated their 5th season with an amazing Regionals tour and Nationals event. In 2017 Shake the Ground added Daytona Beach, FL, which sold out immediately and toured nine exceptional cities with unremarkable talent.
Shake the Ground awarded over $150,000 in summer intensive scholarships specializing in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap and Hip Hop to over 75 incredibly talented young dancers. These dancers attended nationally renowned dance programs that included Move the Initiative, Joffrey Ballet School NY/LA, Art of Movement, Broadway Dance Center, Modas Dance, and PeriDance Center.
The 2017 Nationals in Orlando at the Embassy Suites was also quite an event. The sold out weekend brought many talented dancers and schools to the stage. Some of the highlights from the events were the Teacher’s Wine and Cheese night, Movie Night and Rave Dance party featuring guest Hip Hop Artist Chris Porter from NYC. Grand Prize awards included a Royal Caribbean Cruise! It was amazing to see dancers, teachers, parents and friends having such a great time together. Shake the Ground is looking forward to a spectacular Nationals weekend in 2018 – and already have added an extra day!
For the 2018 season, STG will be adding two new cities to our Regional Tour, Woodbridge, Virginia and Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, there will be more special awards, more scholarships, and more Master teachers and judges to make the competition experience valuable for the students and the teachers as well. And as always, Shake the Ground will pack in some fun for everyone in attendance.
To top it off, plans are already in the works for the infamous Nationals in Orlando. So mark your calendars! We know this will be a memorable event for all!
Shake the Ground continues to be focused on acknowledging and inspiring every competitor and being a positive role in their dance education. We hope you will join us in our excitement as we welcome our 2018 season and we are now accepting registrations!
We look forward to in our 2018 Shake the Ground Tour! It is going to be extraordinary!
