We invite you to be part of the Celebration of the decade

28 years of  “The Australian Dance Championships”


Showcase is officially recognized as the largest Dance event ever created in Australian History. With Dance now also being officially ranked by the government as the most popular sport among young dancers in Australian and New Zealand, this has made it possible for Showcase to be chosen as the number 1 platform for Dancers to compete for the Nations TOP titles for Dance and we invite you to be part of it. This season Showcase will be awarding over $180,000 + of cash and prizes, making it the largest cash awards and prizes are given in Australian Dance Competition history.


Showcase National Dance Championships has continually dominated the Dance competition industry in Australia since the mid-1990s; over the years, Showcase has awarded over 2 million dollars worth of cash awards and prizes. Showcase prides itself on its professionalism to be a much-loved event for a countless generation of dancers who have taken part over the years. Showcase will continue to produce for the Australian and New Zealand Dance community not only a high level event, but also a fun and educational experience in a safe environment.  


The level of Dance competitions has definitely taken a new direction and we can’t deny competitiveness is at an all-time high and every dancer wants the TOP spot at the Australian Dance Championships. However, we all must work together to encourage a fun and memorable experience for the dancers and their families when attending Dance competitions.


I am excited to announce in 2023 we are taking once again the 2023 Dancer of the Year winners to “Italy” for the World Dance Movement, and Team New Zealand and Team Australia for the Dance World Cup. (subject to government travel borders being opened)

After the huge success of the 2017 to Barcelona Spain, 2018 to Italy & 2019 to Portugal, we are continuing these exciting and rewarding opportunities. Changing Dancer of the Year and moving it into modern times has been the most innovative and rewarding changes we have made to date. Europe is the place for Dance right now and you don’t want your child to miss any of these opportunities to travel with us.


In keeping and adjusting with the times during the 2023 season we are offering more ways than ever to qualify for the Jan 2024 Gold Coast finals at “The Star Casino” than ever before with over 50 official locations all offering qualifications for Solos, Duo/trios, Groups and Dancer of the Year this is in addition to online video submissions & our In-house studio comps that are also qualifiers giving every dancer a variety of options during the pandemic and keeping everyone safe.

We have listened to our dedicated participants and we have moved back to making all acts qualify to make it to the National level including to be part of Dancer of the Year.


You will see why I am fully committed along with fellow dance industry competitions and address “social media” and how we conduct ourselves and educate young influential dancers on how to use it in a positive way, we are proud to be also part of the “Australian National Dance Competition Alliance” by entering a National Dance competition that is part of the “alliance” you will have not only to trust in their Australian brand but also a commitment to child safety as well as fair rules across the competitions. We also work closely with the NSW Child guardian to implement these safe environments that all families can enjoy while at our events.


we look forward to seeing you this season
