Landmark Resort, Crown Reef Hotel & the Sea Mist

Myrtle Beach is Showstopper’s home and we pull out all the stops! For this convention, we’ll have three different locations — the Landmark Resort, Crown Reef Hotel, and the Sea Mist! With all the locations right on the beach, the ocean is only steps from your dance floor. Besides the sand and sun, there are indoor hot tubs, pools, and of course — Showstopper dance parties! The fun starts early with classes starting Friday at 7pm! Every second of this weekend is exciting — be sure to strut your stuff at the $1 Private Dance Parties at Broadway at the Beach Saturday and Sunday nights (everyone is invited)!

TWEENS: Tweens get a place to dance all to themselves — the Sea Mist Oceanfront Resort (1200 S Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577)! We will have a limo as a free shuttle from the Landmark to the Sea Mist so our tweens can ride back and forth in true Showstopper style.
