Studio Spirit Award
Does your studio show "spirit" not just within your team but to surrounding teams?! We are looking for one studio per location who exemplify team effort and The Spirit of excellence as well as a team that encourages others to reach higher and challenges those around them to feel inspired! DR also loved to see Studio Spirit via social media and other outlets as studios prepare to come to a DR event. DR's Studio Spirit award will be presented at Faculty Show.

DR faculty will be picking one performance from our Showcase to perform in our Faculty Show as our Rising Star performance! We are looking for performances with creativity and innovation that are cleaned and prepared as well as appropriate choreography and costuming. The Rising Star will receive a scholarship to perform their awarded piece at one of our Earthshakers- The Competition's regional event.
