Awards and Achievements

At Dance Central, we’re so proud of what our students, faculty, and alumni achieve — whether it’s smashing it at individual events and competitions, or bringing the house down (and the trophy home!) at the many competitions our Crews and Troupes participate in all year round.

We’re continually excited to see our family grow from strength to strength, and watching individuals and teams constantly topping their personal bests. Getting officially recognised by the public and industry is the icing on the cake.

Dance Central awarded the following students for outstanding effort last year.
