Dancing in the Buckeye State

Showstopper travels a lot as we work our way through our National Competition Tour each year, and dancing in Ohio is absolutely fantastic! All kinds of Showstopper events take place in Ohio from competitions to dance conventions. When competition season begins in February, we will be preparing to host three Regionals competitions in Ohio. When Regionals are over, we aren't done dancing among the trees in Ohio's hills. Our Northern Finals take place in Sandusky!


From October 21st-22nd you can dance with us in Sandusky, Ohio at the Kalahari Waterpark Resort. It will be a weekend of dancing and water slides you can't miss!

When you aren't dancing with us, you can have crazy amounts of fun on all of the awesome water rides including the Lazy River, Zip Coaster, and surfin’ FlowRider! There’s even an Animal Kingdom! Don’t miss the candy shop, indoor mini golf, and of course — Spa Kalahari! This resort offers activities and entertainment for the whole family!

Look at all of the fun we had last year:

April 6-8 we will be in Columbus, Ohio at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. While you are in Columbus, there are tons of things to do! You will be dancing with us, of course, and, when you are done dancing, the city is full of things to explore like the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and the Franklin Park Conservatory.

April 13-15 we will be in Sandusky, Ohio at the Kalahari Resort and Waterpark. Don't forget that this resort is home to a huge water park full of fun slides. When you aren't dancing, make a splash with your dance BFFs!

May 18-20 we will be in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Duke Energy Convention Center. Cincinnati is another Ohio city home to a ton of adventures. After you claim your Crystal award, head to the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden or Coney Island to make even more unforgettable memories!
