We are excited to be a part of the 2017 Industry Dance Awards this year produced by KAR in Hollywood CA!  During the competition season, our regional judges nominated one routine from each competition in the following categories – Hip Hop, Tap, Lyrical/Modern/Contemporary, Jazz, Musical Theater/Novelty/Character, and Ballet/Open/Acro. Out of these routines, our IDA judges will be selecting one nominee per category to represent Turn It Up Dance Challenge and fly across country for this huge event!  

Since we have 26 routines in each of the categories to choose from, we need a little help narrowing down who will be going to Hollywood. That is where our magnificent panel of judges comes in! Turn It Up is happy to announce our select set of judges who will be choosing one routine to represent us in each category. Here they are!
