Dance Fest's Mission

is to introduce competitors and spectators to DanceSport, focusing on those new to ballroom dance and to competitions.

Dance Fest is

a low-cost, beginner-friendly DanceSport competition where:


  • Dancers and spectators alike can enjoy an atmosphere of friendliness, camaraderie, and fun unlike any other competition in the Midwest.
  • New competitors can see all that DanceSport has to offer in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, without breaking the bank.
  • Experienced competitors can compete against some of the nation's best dancers in all styles and skill levels.
  • All competitors and spectators can sharpen their skills with free seminars held throughout the event.
