Celebrating our 40th year of dance, Showstopper is America’s first and longest-running dance competition! We host over 50 National events each year, including Regionals Competitions, National Finals Competitions, and Dance Conventions. Each event is held in carefully picked cities and venues throughout the United States, creating an experience for the whole family to enjoy. You will compete with top dancers from around the country at our National Dance Competitions! Hold that trophy high and watch as confetti falls from the sky! We’ve been blessed for 40 years to be able to watch so many dancers grow up and continue doing what they love.
Princess of Pop Britney Spears started out her successful career as an aspiring dancer and Showstopper competitor. After taking the ‘90s generation by storm with her hit single “…Baby One More Time”Britney went on to release eight albums, sell more than 100 million copies across the world, and even become a judge on season two of The X Factor. More recently, Britney has been using those Showstoppin’skills in her own show, Piece of Me, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas!
England has their Queen, and America has Beyoncé. Born in Houston in September 1981, Bey wasted no time werking her way towards success. Long before she was known world-wide as a Diva, she was living a life similar to many Showstopper dancers. At our Showstopper Competitions in Houston, Bey took the spotlight…and never quite left it. Now she’s a multi-platinum, award-winning recording artist and performer. She’s won 20 Grammy Awards and is the most nominated woman in Grammy Award’s history! So it’s no surprise that in 2013 and in 2014, Time magazine named her one of the most influential people in the world. We love that Showstopper could be part of her path towards becoming America’s Queen Bey
Jaime Pressly, like a lot of our #ShowstopperFam, was highly driven and trained in multiple areas. She spent 11 years training in both dance and gymnastics before she decided to start modeling. She used those dance skills and werked it in the modeling world — posing everywhere from the United States to Italy to Japan! While she still enjoys modeling, she’s also an actress, best known for playing Joy on the sitcom My Name is Earl. She’s appeared in many well-known films, as well, including Joe Dirt, I Love You, Man, Poison Ivy: The New Seduction and D.O.A: Dead or Alive. On Jaime’s trophy shelf you’re likely to find her Emmy Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award (right next to her Showstopper trophies, of course!)
You might recognize Keri from her award-winning role on TV’s Felicity, but before she became a star, she was a Showstopper! As a child, when Keri wasn’t performing with the Mickey Mouse Club, she danced her way across the Showstopper stage quite a few times, performing with Lisa Holtz Star Struck Dance Studio. You can catch her on The Americans, Scrubs, or Arrested Development. She’s also made her way to the big screen, starring in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Mission: Impossible III, August Rush, and many other films.
