About Us

We educate, create and support the dance community by working with the people who are creating the multi- media, Broadway, and live performances across the world. We are Ignite Dance "Live" the Unconventional Convention.

Ignite Dance Live is taking a unique, unconventional approach to dance conventions by looking forward to what is coming next. It's exciting how quickly dance has taken over our world in television, film, and social media outlets. We will provide a creative, positive, and exciting experience of learning and building a new way of working together. We will create new ideas and choreography with dancers you have never met before and with your own teammates. This dance movement is the way of the future. We are excited to continue to support your work as educators and work with your dancers.   Social media and YouTube has changed the speed in which dancers can excel and self-promote. We are here to embrace and educate the best and most successful ways to use your social media and livestream talents to promote you and your dancers. We will provide a world-class faculty from Tony and Emmy award winning choreographers to winners of SYTYCD and World of Dance, to Broadway Stars and beyond. They are living the real deal of dance every day and we are bringing them to you.  Get ready for the Action.

CONVENTION / SHOWNITE

Our conventions consist of two full six hour days of class, plus two evenings of Shownite. We start our days with a half-hour warm-up and five classes. A half-hour lunch break is also provided (though dancers will need to provide their own lunch).

Rooms are split between Juniors (12 and under) and Seniors (13 and above). We will also provide a lighter schedule for the minis in room three.  Classes can consist of a variety of different styles including traditional (i.e. Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, etc.) as well as some truly unique experiences such as Jazz Funk, Ballroom, Theater, Improv, Heels, on-camera interviews and more. 

 Our master teachers are also our judges, which allows our talented team to focus on each class to serve your students’ needs. We will give honors based on the work in class, picking up choreography, and how these kids excel under pressure and ShowNite Performances.  We are here to support these students and Ignite them to the next level. 

 During our convention, we will have an open discussion called "Celebrity Talk" this will help to break down any questions that your students or teachers have about becoming the best artist they can be or how to approach the business of dance. This creative environment gives the studio directors the ability to ask questions to our team and to gather feedback that allows us to serve your studios better. We will have a direct casting agent for kids and teens for different opportunities and feedback on taking the next steps for your dance future. This program is also designed for any dancer out there that wants to learn and grow.

Ignite will have representation from agencies, college pre- qualification acceptance letters to Studio School in Los Angeles, certificates for The Broadway Dance Center in New York City, Workshops to The Broadway Worship for juniors and senior and personal memories that will last a life time. We want to become a part of your dance future. Welcome to Ignite. 

ShowNite performances will include all genres of dance and talent. We are a convention that welcomes all types of talent to our stage.

MEDIA CLASS

Ignite will focus its curriculum towards dancing in all media markets. From Music Videos, Broadway Musicals, to Television Commercials and Motion Pictures. Dance has become mainstreamed by the presence of SYTYCD, World of Dance and America’s Got Talent. We are excited to share these skills, direct from some of the choreographers that work in live musicals for television like Hairspray; series hits like "Smash", films like "Isn't It Romantic" and Dance Commercials across the world.

These new opportunities to work with these cutting edge choreographers will set the trend for the young dancers of our time. This skillset will be essential for their future. We will offer classes in all genres and will work hands on with each dancer on how to interview on camera and how to know what it feels like to be on set in a working production. We will also share our talents in ballroom, improv, how to audition, what to wear, and how to connect with agents. We will have on-site casting agents to direct and educate your students and your faculty. We are here to give our dancers the competitive edge that will serve them in their futures in dance and beyond. This positive environment is about building the confidence of our next generation of dancers and dance lovers across the world.
