Take Centerstage Dance Challenge was born in 2008 out of a desire to bring education back to the dance competition industry. There was need for quality judges' critiques, adherence to a traditional scoring method, and an emphasis on education over trophies - all at an affordable price. 


Ten years later, TCDC has stuck to that mission and expanded to new cities to bring the TCDC experience to as many dancers as possible. Join the TCDC Family and be part of the movement!

TCDC is always our favorite regional competition each year! The staff is friendly and always professional. They are accommodating and truly want the kids to succeed and learn from the experience. This is a competition your studio should attend when you value helpful feedback, affordable fees, and quality events! We selected TCDC for our first ever “National Competition” experience and were not disappointed. It exceed our expectations! The awards ceremony was an absolutely blast and did not show “favoritism” to any one studio. It was an excellent experience and we will absolutely be back! If you want your dancers to learn and grow from attending competitions, then this one is for you!

As a dance studio owner that has attended MANY competitions, I must say that yours is a "staple" on our list every year!  This is because I know that no matter how large your company grows, you will never loose sight of the values and commitment you started with.  It is these things that truly makes you stand out from the rest!  I am a huge fan of all that you do and look forward to your events every year!  I cannot say enough about how awesome the TCDC experience is for my dancers. One of the best things that happens for us at your competitions is that a dancer may receive a high silver award.  When I was competing I would receive honorable mentions and the day my solo won a BRONZE I thought I had accomplished all I ever dreamed of! :)  All of my "platinum" dancers were one "silver" dancers....this is how they learned, then dreamed, then worked, and then they accomplished!  I applaud TCDC for their scoring system, we love it!

Best wishes to you and your staff at Nationals this year...we have been there from the beginning and are so happy and proud of your growth!
