The Groove Experience

The Groove Experience was created in 2009 specifically for All Star Dancers. These events were designed so that All Star dancers had a high-quality event to attend that guarantees a proper competition floor and dance-only judges!

Groove powers dance halls at Varsity All Star Grand National events across the country to elevate and produce an authentic Dance Experience. All Groove events, including those powered by The Groove Experience, award bids to The Dance Summit and The USASF Dance Worlds! Join us at a City near you to EXPERIENCE our events, compete with the BEST, and to let your dancers GROOVE!

New this season, we are teaming up with the top dance professionals, business owners, and industry experts to bring the dance community together for The Groove Experience Dance Convention!
