Dance Solos Shine at MDDT Nationals
Known in the dance team world as the most prestigious national competition for dance solos, our trademarked solo title championship showcases the best dancers in the United States. Dancers in this category are evaluated in three areas: dance routine, technique spotlight, and an interview question from the judges. This patented competition format considers the dancer's ability to learn/perform advanced-level choreography, while emphasizing their position as a team role model and ambassador for the dance team industry. The TOP 5 earn scholarship awards & bids to represent TEAM USA at Dance Team World Championships in Tokyo, Japan!

Countdown To MDDT Dance Team Nationals 2023
There is so much excitement waiting for you and your dance team at MDDT Nationals! Our national dance team competition is a rigorous & thrilling event that promotes goodwill and connection between dancers, teams, coaches, directors, parents, and dance industry professionals.
During COVID, the dance team competition industry suffered greatly... especially the millions of students who could not rehearse or dance together with their teammates. Now that life is much more normal again, MDDT Dance Team Nationals is here to continue our legacy as America's FIRST, ORIGINAL & ONLY non-profit national dance competition.
