About Us

     


Dance Olympus, the workshop, was launched in 1976 by Jules Stone, father of the current company president, Art Stone. DANCEAMERICA™, the competition, was conceived in 1983 as a creative supplement to the convention. Together, they offer the dancer the dual opportunity of performance and classroom experience.

The company's roots have always been maintained: The true arena for learning is the classroom.

All DANCEAMERICA™ competitions are held in conjunction with the Dance Olympus workshops and all competitors must be registered for the Dance Olympus workshop.

Opportunities abound at Dance Olympus and DANCEAMERICA™. Dancers have the chance to compete for Dancer of the Year Titles, awards for the Young Choreographer as well as travel the country as a Dance Olympus VIP.

Dance Olympus and DANCEAMERICA™ will visit 17 cities across the United States during the 2014-2015 preliminary season.

The 2015 DANCEAMERICA™ National Finals will be held in Chicago, IL at the beautiful Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center from July 3rd through the 7th, followed by the Dance Olympus Workhop, July 8th through 10th, 2015.
