Watch Them Shine!

We hold the MindSteppers Dance Championship at the end of the academic year, in May. The contest is open to all schools participating in the MindSteppers program, and it is a huge treat for everyone involved.

To see the JOY on everyone's faces is one of the BIGGEST reasons we do what we do!

Your participation in the Dance Championship is included in your membership, whether you train with our online videos, at our in-person workshops, or in our New Orleans classes.

We stay in communication with you throughout the school year to keep you on track, and even if you've never done anything like this before, we'll talk you through it.

We want your students to dance!

They'll be amazing!


It provides children with the experience of:

  • Sportsmanship

  • Team spirit and effort

  • Responsibility of actions and the results of putting in work

  • Self improvement versus comparison with others

  • Greater community awareness

  • But most of all, to have fun!


There are 2 categories:

  • The Individual Dance Division, and

  • The Team Choreography Division

Each couple performs the dance in which they excelled throughout the year. Each school selects up to six couples to represent their team.

The Individual Dance Division

There is an all skate for each of the five dances. An all skate is when all participants are on the floor at the same time.

  • Salsa

  • Waltz

  • Swing

  • Tango

  • Merengue

If there are more than 12 schools, there will be two heats and couples will be selected for the Finals.

Team Choreography Division

Each team will perform a routine to the music of their choice for at least one minute, and maximum one and a half minutes. It's short and sweet, and fantastic to watch.
