Shake the Ground (STG) continues its reputation an extraordinary leader in the dance competition arena. If you have not yet attended, you are missing out on one of the most exciting competitions ever!

Shake The Ground: The Ultimate Dance CompetitionAt a Shake the Ground competition, each dancer has an opportunity to take FREE Master Classes taught by world-renowned teachers, receive Special Awards and Prizes, and receive Scholarships to some of the most elite summer dance intensive programs. Over $150,000 is awarded in Scholarships and Capezio Award of Excellence Certificates are given to incredibly talented dancers. As a result, these dancers attended world-class summer programs like the Joffrey Ballet School, JBS/STG Hip-Hop Summer Intensive, Broadway Dance Center, Sarasota Ballet, Modas Dance, Move the Initiative, and Peridance NY – to name a few.

The 2018 season will again culminate with the Nationals. Held in Orlando, Nationals encompass an incredible three days of fun and exciting events, including themed movie nights, pool parties, free master classes, and of course, an ultimate competition, followed by a beautiful awards gala. The weekend is always more than a competition—a true family event.
