Each individual can earn points for their studio by showing little acts of kindness. Individuals can lose points for their studio too. To increase your studio's chance of winning... We encourage dancers to show their studio pride by displaying posters in the audience or onstage during awards. Studios will be judged on overall spirit and sportsmanship to others throughout the competition.
