About Us

We seek to empower, support, educate and unite the global dance community by combining dance, film, and social media into a single state of the art social and educational experience.

Ignite Dance Live is taking a unique, unconventional approach to dance conventions by looking beyond just improving attendees’ dancing abilities. While we will still provide world-class faculty and the highest standards of operational execution, we will also place equally as strong emphasis on other critical areas of a dancer’s career development - equipping them with the full toolkit required to succeed in the rapidly-changing world of dance.

SHOWNITE

Our conventions consist of a two full 8 hour days, plus 2 evening SHOWNITES and a 3 hour first of its kind live Film intensive. We start our days with 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 Junior (12 and under) and Senior (13 and above). Classes can consist of a variety of different styles including traditional (i.e. Tap, Jazz, Ballet, etc.) as well as some truly unique experiences such as Afro Fusion, Jazz Funk, and Dance Fitness. Another first of its kind dance fitness intensive will start off day 2. 

Our Master Teachers are also our Judges, which allows our teachers to target each class to your students’ needs.

During our convention, we provide a complimentary luncheon and round table discussion for studio directors, teachers and Ignite team members. This open environment gives the studio directors the ability to ask questions of our team and to gather feedback that allows us to serve our studios better.

ON FILM “LIVE”

Ignite will be the only convention in the world gearing its dance curriculum towards dancing on film “LIVE”. This is significant as commercial film, concert tours, dance TV, and live TV productions like "Grease Live", "Hairspray Live" and "A Christmas Story" have taken over TV and Internet content.

These new dance on film opportunities are setting the trend for the young dancers of our time and this skillset will be essential for their future. This class is a 3 hour intense immersion into the world of LIVE film and the ONLY convention offering a Live Film Class directed and filmed by an actual Hollywood Production company. We will also augment our dance curriculum with secondary classes on fitness and market education, motivation through movement, building self-esteem and other skills which will give our dancers a competitive advantage in the future.
