Dance Design Events proudly presents "That's Showbiz" one of the fastest growing stage dance competitions in the UK. 

In 2017/18 Dance Design Events will host 22 competitive heats throughout the United Kingdom ending in a huge Grand Final at Liverpool's Echo Arena. For 2017/18 we have the added challenge of a semi-final stage to make it even more challenging to win the new and improve £2,500 cash prize for the overall winner.

All ages, styles of dance and group sizes are catered for, meaning there is something for everyone. We hope that with the addition of semi-finals for 2017/18 we can open our doors further afield and encourage novice or newly formed schools to take part without the fear of competing against some seasoned troupes. 

The events are held in theatre style settings hosted by a professional compère. So not only do the dancers get to compete and demonstrate their talent, they also have the experience of performing on a stage in front of large audiences.

At Dance Design Events we believe that, in this ever evolving art that we should keep traditional styles of dance alive whilst embracing new styles of dance. That's Showbiz offers a host of  prizes for all genres and ages so that everyone is recognised for their specialism. From Ballet to Break-dancing every style is appreciated and rewarded in its own right.

We give away hundreds of trophies during the heats, . At the Final there are some fabulous prizes including the top prize of £2,500 for the best overall group.
