What Makes Us Unique
Experience Tailored for
Dancers 12 & Under
At The Buzz our event is 100% centred around young dancers.
The Buzz Gives Back
All of our events incorporate a give back aspect. Including an annual food drive and donating 5% of our overall profits to non-profit organizations working toward the protection and sustainability of the bee population.
At The Buzz adjudications happen within 2 hours of a dance hitting the stage.
At The Buzz we have a secure backstage check in/ check out process ensuring dancers are safe throughout the event.
Fun for the Whole Family
The Buzz isn't just for the dancers it is an event for the whole family! At our events we have activities for everyone. Including a childcare centre with qualified caregivers to watch younger siblings of the competitors during their section.
Options for Recreational Dancers
At The Buzz we welcome ALL dancers, including recreational dancers. We have a unique category called the Good Times category where dancers have the opportunity to perform and receive a special medal.They will be marked so they get a proper score and feedback, but they will not receive a medal based on their mark. Everyone gets the same medal, and there is a top mark trophy, and the top mark gets to be in the finals as a guest performer.
Multi Tier Awards System
With 4 age divisions, and 4 experience levels, there is a place for every dancer to perform with confidence. Our divisions are as follows:
Micro Division: Ages 3-4
Mini Division: Ages 5-6
Junior Division: Ages 7-9
Senior Division: Ages 10-12
Our experience levels are: Recreational, Novice, Intermediate, Competitive. We will also have a special category called the Good Time, where dancers who wish to receive a score, but either do not wish to, or are not able to, perform confidently in their experience level are able to enter their routine.
Awards that go Beyond the Mark
At the Buzz we don't just recognize dancers based on top marks but also in regards to studio spirit, passion, sportsmanship and effort.At each adjudication we will award the Top Score, Top Choreography and Top Performance of the section, along with unlimited special awards, and our Clean Bee award, given to routines that have clean timing and execution. All studios will be a part of our finals.
At the Buzz we don't believe dancers are competing with one another but rather they are collaborating within a shared passion and we provide opportunities such as an opening number with all dance studios to produce a spirit of community.
