WHO WE ARE
We believe that when we Hear with an ear to listening, we can Educate ourselves, and Advocate for change, in order to Train others.
The goal of HEAT Convention & Competition is to highlight the artistry of dance with our inspiring classes and fierce competitions, not only for the camera and social media, but for the pure love of dancing. It is the fundamental focus of heat, that students continually desire to develop an ethic of striving to be the best – both with their skills and with their hearts
Commitment to Training
HEAT’s focus is on our training – focusing on both the macro and micro levels of instruction. This allows for the best both in class instruction and the individual dancer. We are committed to never compromise the quality of care from our convention workshops for the benefit of competition.
POSITIVE CONVENTION ATMOSPHERE
HEAT is committed to providing our dancers with both positive instruction and a safe and approachable environment. We believe that our teachers and mentors should be down to earth and accessible, not idolized and intimidating, in order to to inspire and push our dancers to their full potential.
When I started HEAT I wanted to design a convention space where dancers felt they could grow and flourish – a safe space where everyone had a sense of belonging, were included, and felt seen!
It was important to create a convention with the idea that dance is about more than merely steps, that it is about shaping the next generation of the dance community.
After two years, seeing HEAT come to life and intentions come to fruition, it has been a joy to see dancers, parents, and teachers grab hold of and fully embrace those values.
I am beyond excited for Season III of HEAT and to share who we are and what we have to offer with even more cities, studios, and dancers!
