Want to put your dance hobby on the fast track? Do you ever wish you could switch places with a celebrity on Dancing with the Stars? While there are many students that prefer to learn to be a comfortable social dancer, there are those that want a challenge and to push themselves at a competitive level. 

Maybe you loved competition in another hobby, or you just need an aggressive, but fun deadline to make the most of your investment. Whatever the reason, competitive dancing is an exciting way to push the limits of your comfort zone. 

Exhibition & Competitive Dance Events

There are Arthur Murray events for every skill or interest level. These dance events can put your learning on the fast track, and improve your self confidence on and off the dance floor. 

  • In-Studio Events – Whether it is a demonstration at one of our Friday Practice Parties, Guest Parties, or Newsome Twosome Spotlights, these events are a great first step to participating in larger public events. 
  • District Showcases – Combine the community of a studio event with the format of a large scale competition, and you get a District Showcase. Our Fort Wayne studio hosts showcase once a year, and attend other area Arthur Murray Showcases throughout the year in Grand Rapids and Indianapolis. With several studios in attendance under one roof, you get a full day of dancing, the chance to meet students and teachers from other studios, and get inspired by watching other dancers and professionals. 
  • Dance-O-Rama® – This is the largest of the exhibition events. In most cases, these events involve travel, heavy preparation time, and, at some point, dance costumes. These events are held in locations like Hawaii, Las Vegas, New York City, California, New Orleans, or even Greece & Italy! Students and teachers from around the world attend, and it is the fastest way to progress in your dance hobby and confidence.
