Entering its eleventh year, NUVO Dance Convention has officially made its mark in the dance world.

At NUVO you will see a wide variety of dancers, from contemporary to hip-hop and jazz to ballet. Most dancers are between 5-18 years old.


We are unique in that our convention teachers also double as judges. Meaning, dancers are being seen and critiqued by top industry professionals.


With a faculty that is talented, energetic, down-to-earth and supportive in every way, a technical and administrative staff that is unparalleled, and an overall event that has been created with your best interests in mind, it is with great enthusiasm we encourage you to join us for NUVO Season ELEVEN!
