We are so proud to be entering our 24th Season!

We continue our commitment to the advancement of Dance in Western Canada. This Festival was started to encourage ALL DANCERS to enjoy the benefit of being adjudicated – not just the competitive or advanced students. It has evolved into an event where friendships have flourished and memories have been created for a lifetime. Witnessing the growing respect the young generation of Dancers has for each other, has been both refreshing and rewarding. Students are marked against themselves and all dancers receive the medal associated with that mark. They are categorized by their age and years of training; with a beginner category for all first year dancers.

Standing Ovation continually strives to provide an exciting learning experience within a positive atmosphere. We believe that the education of our dancers is even more important than the placement . Because of this, have an onstage adjudication at the end of every session where the adjudicators themselves talk to the dancers and uplift, give insight and support the training they are already receiving! 

Throughout the years we have enjoyed watching thousands of Dancers master their art while participating in the 22 different categories offered.

Trophies are awarded for Most Promising and Outstanding performances and teachers are recognized for their efforts through Choreography Awards. In addition to the trophies - thousands of dollars in Scholarships are presented during each and every Festival.

We hope that if you are participating with us this season that you enjoy the Festival and benefit from the comments of our highly skilled and trained adjudicators.

Have Fun & Keep Dancing!!
