The Emerald Ball Shines On

April 27th - May 2nd, 2021

This year, the Finales of the Dance Vision Circuit & the California Gold Rush Dancesport Series are going virtual.

This comp will be having a virtual celebration for the finales of the Dance Vision Circuit & the California Gold Rush Dancesport Series one week after the competition on Friday, May 7th @ 5/8pm PDT/EDT. Be sure to join for this virtual event, hosted by Wayne Eng & John DePalma with music provided by Brent some extra special guests, dancing tips and more.

While there will be 3 separate events this year, not all are the same - Live in Person will feature all the same events as usual, however no scholarships or Professional events will be offered virtually. Hopefully, this will alleviate any confusion.

You have three choices:

There is the Traditional Style - Live in Person ~ Dallas, Texas

Virtual Pre-Recorded - At Home or Studio ~ Open to the World

Virtual Live on Zoom - At Home or Studio ~ Open to the World

***We have received contributions from individuals who would like to have a dear relative or friend who passed on remembered that loved to dance or was a dance aficionado. We call these memorial contributions. Perhaps you would like to have someone memorialized in this manner. Make a donation and give us their name. We have on our website a yellow brick road to engrave their name to a brick as a memorial to that person. This contribution will assist future generations of dancers and help keep young people more positive and healthy.
