ALL ABOUT EDUCATION
Our HEAT faculty is committed to shape, inspire, and educate the next generation beyond just steps and what’s trending now. We believe that this powerful platform we have as educators should teach and inspire our students – moving them to spread more positivity and give them the tools to succeed, not only as dancers, but as citizens of the world.
HEAT’s Teacher Class:
During each HEAT event a professional speaker will address our teachers in one of various topics including: diversity and inclusion, studio health and safety, psychology, anatomy, nutrition, injury prevention, and business prosperity.
HEAT’s Spoken Word Class:
At each event, one of our faculty will present and teach a spoken word class based on poem, article, or song that examines social, cultural, and universal issues inherent in today’s world. Through the presentation of the subject matter’s history and discussion of its impact, the meaning behind our movement will produce a deeper complexity.
HEAT’s History of Dance:
We believe that it is vital to explore and understand the roots of the style from which we dance. With a knowledge in the origins of Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Ballroom, and Modern Dance – our dancers can begin to execute these styles at a higher level.
HEAT’s Educational Opportunities:
Each HEAT event will provide amazing scholarship opportunities for selected students. These scholarships will provide a stepping stone after graduation, to pursue their dancing careers in a higher educational institution.

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.
