It’s our final day in Anaheim, California at the Disneyland Hotel. It’s also the last day of Finals this years! (It’s ok, we’re devastated, too.) Here’s what’s happening:
We’ll be kicking our Final Day off by sending our favorite celebrities down the pink carpet, our teachers and judges. Cameras flashing, the paparazzi will be out to capture pictures of these superstars. Don’t forget to cheer when your favorite celebrities have their names called! After we welcome our teachers and judges, some of our top-scoring soloists from Regionals will get the party started with the Opening Number. This performance is a must-see at every Finals.
Did you know that Lacey Schwimmer, of Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, is performing at this Showstopper Finals? She’ll be teaching the Opening Number dance and performing to her new song, “The Dance That You Do” with our Opening Number dancers.
You’ll probably have her song stuck in your head afterward, so here it is for you to listen to on repeat!
After the opening number, it’s time for the part we’ve all been waiting for, the championships. We will kick off the championships with small groups and move on to large/super groups after lunch. There’s nothing more rewarding than watching these hard-working dancers take the stage to put on some amazing performances. Don’t forget to stick around for awards to see how each performance places!
The best part? You can join us for finals no matter where you are! Our Web TV Show is live all day, so you don’t have to miss anything. Join us! Dance with us! Cheer with us! It’s an amazing day of dance.
