Acrobatic Arts was founded in Canada in 2012 and has grown into an internationally recognized syllabus. The program is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in the five categories of AcroDance: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering and Tumbling. The comprehensive, technique focused syllabus was developed alongside professionals and experts throughout the industry. Acrobatic Arts can be found in over 6000 studios in 41 countries worldwide. An estimated 350,000 dancers participate in Acrobatic Arts classes every week and we continue to see growth every year!
That’s Showbiz is the UK’s biggest and most loved group dance competition, produced by Dance Design Events.
That’s Showbiz has gotten so big we now host two types of Showbiz competitions:
That’s Showbiz – Main Season
We host our full Showbiz season which runs from September to March and consists of Heats all over the UK, Semi Finals and a Grand Final at the prestigious Blackpool Opera House & Winter Gardens.
That’s Showbiz: The Experience
We now also host That’s Showbiz: The Experience – all of the Showbiz magic in special one off events, where WINNERS ARE CROWNED AT EACH EVENT!!! Yes, you read that right, you need to bring your ‘A’ game, no second chances at semis or finals with the Showbiz Experience.
That’s Showbiz hosts for all ages, genres and group sizes start from a minimum number of five dancers. The competition is dedicated to groups only and the events are held in theatre style settings hosted by a professional compère, meaning that not only do the dancers get to compete, but also gain experience of performing on some of the UK’s most iconic stages in front of an attentive audience. At Dance Design Events we believe that; in this ever evolving art we should keep traditional styles of dancing alive whilst embracing new styles of dance, hence why we offer lots of prizes so that everyone is awarded for what they do best. From Ballet to Break-dancing every style is appreciated and rewarded in its own right.
My saying ‘you come first’ doesn’t mean the kids get less of you or frazzled, stressed and exhausted you – no contrary, they get energised, excited and happy you.
The Dance Den is about streamling, building strong foundations, just like all those years of ballet training! It’s about making a school that is successful on your terms (not others beliefs) whatever success means to you, let’s get your life back, so you are free to give more of what you love.
