WHY CHOOSE CHEMISTRY?

More Time On Stage

We give dancers more time to compete on stage with their routines
& qualifying dancers will get a second opportunity to showcase their work to the audience & judges!

Live Feedback

Dancers are adjudicated in 3 different categories & will receive
live feedback from one of our judges immediately after competing!

One Day Events

We are different from other competitions & Chemistry happens within one
amazing day where the judges can truly focus on each routine that hits the stage!
