About The Event

We are combining our annual 2019 National Finals and Summer Intensive into one, dynamic convention and National Finals competition experience in Fort Walton Beach/Destin, FL at the beautiful Emerald Coast Convention Center!  

We will offer 3-4 days of phenomenal convention classes during our 2019 Summer Intensive.  Classes will be scheduled during the time frame of July 8 - July 11.  We will also offer a condensed and exciting class schedule for our youngest dancers ages 4-7!  A multitude of classroom scholarships and specialty awards will be available to dancers who are convention registered.  We will also have a Go 2 Talent Agent from LA conduct both a master class as well as a separate Go 2 Talent audition for our older convention registered dancers! 

Our general competition schedule will be released no less than one month prior to the event.  Our exact convention classroom schedule will be customized around the National Finals competition schedule and released within 3 weeks prior to our event.  Much care and consideration is taken in the formation of our exact competition and classroom schedule to optimize both the experience and opportunities of our attendees.  Dupree Dance reserves the right to modify our anticipated classroom schedule around the specific needs of our event.  

Our National Finals competition will expand over a possible 5 days (July 8-July 12) and culminate in an exciting Dupree Dance Showdown on Friday, July 12!   All registered solo performers will have the option of entering our Title competition, which will result in the crowning of our Mr./Miss Rising Star and Mr./Miss Dupree Dance in each age and level division!  Each studios highest scoring number from their group/line/production category in each age and level division will have the opportunity to qualify to re-compete at our exciting Dupree Dance Showdown.  Championship belts, cash awards, a multitude of scholarships and specialty awards are all an exciting part of our final Showdown and Nationals experience!  We involve studio parents in our Pump It Up Parent routine throughout Nationals, and incorporate all kinds of additional and exciting ‘layers’ to our event making in truly unique! 

Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to train with YOUR favorite Dupree Dance instructors and to grace our National Finals stage in what we guarantee will be our BEST event to date!   Pre-plan now to celebrate on the gorgeous Emeral Coast of Florida with us and to give your dancers a one-of-a-kind combined Intensive and National Competition experience!
