Most of our weekends have all the dance styles: Ballet, Contemporary,  Jazz, Hip-Hop,  Musical Theatre, Tap, Fusion Styles and Ballroom!



Our weekend tuition includes all classes + scholarship opportunities + FREE Master Class for 2 Days Convention Participants

No tuition or wristband is required to observe ADE competition and Closing Showcase!

*ADE does offer single day convention options, however, single day participants are not eligible for scholarships. If participation in competition, dancer must be registered for the full weekend. Single day participants can register for either Saturday or Sunday.

Observer Wristband Policy: Pre-registration is strongly suggested as observer bands may sell out. If still available, they will be sold at the door starting on Friday at early check-in. All observer bands are non-refundable and may not be transferred. ADE is not responsible for lost or stolen bands. You must be accompanying a dancer to observe (children five and under may observe free of charge). Noise level and activity should be kept to a minimum out of consideration for the faculty and dancers. No cell phones, talking, videotaping or note-taking permitted. ADE reserves the right to remove anyone who is disrupting the workshop or not following security directions. Please note: You do not need an observer band to enter ADE Competition, ADE Showcase or The Scholarship Ceremony. This band allows entrance into all ADE level classes.

All registered participants are eligible for scholarships!

ADE awards over $20,000 in scholarships at each event.

Independent dancers may pick up a number during check-in. VIP Studios will have their dancer’s numbers assigned and in their studio packets. Dancers simply wear this number on their dancewear during classes; there is not a traditional audition. This open format leaves more time for class and allows the audition process to be in a supportive and laid back style.

Are you already a scholarship recipient? We can’t wait to have you back at ADE!

Note: scholarships & credits expire 1 year from the date it was issued.
