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 includes guaranteed Marley competition floor, dance-only judges, and master classes from the top dancers in the country!

Today, The Groove Experience hosts 6 high-quality production events all of which are Worlds Bid and Dance Summit bid giving events. Join us at a City near you to EXPERIENCE our events, learn how to improve, compete with the BEST, and to let your dancers GROOVE in our electrifying master classes!
