Kent Commons 525 4th Ave. N., Kent, WA (see map at page bottom)

Preliminary schedule     Enter now!



  • A full spectrum of all-amateur events at modest cost for all ages, styles and skill levels including mixed proficiency and formation teams.
  • Mixed proficiency events now include Newcomer through Pre-championship skill levels. Pre-teen and Junior events have been split into Pre-teen I and II and Junior I and II age categories, as they are at regional and national championships. Please note that National rules only allow Preteens to dance Newcomer through Gold skill levels now.
  • Gain important competition experience without winning your way out of your skill level prior to USA Dance NQEs or Nationals!  As a  Registered USA Dance competition, you do not accrue points that apply to upper level comps.
  • We’re gearing the evening session for great spectating featuring our most popular and highest skill level events, all adults, and formation teams.  Refer to the schedule for current start times.
  • Optimized for formation teams.  Seattle audiences love formation teams and we have booked a large facility to better welcome them.  Both competitive or exhibition events offered.  Judges marks and comments provided.  More info.
  • Entry deadline: Thursday, January 17, 2019, 11:59pm.
