High School Team Championships
Entering it’s 48th year, Iowa hosts the largest state high school dance competition in the nation with 250+ high school teams and a total of more than 5,000 dancers performing more than 600 routines throughout the three-day competition.
The state competition, held in Des Moines, includes performances in both Wells Fargo Arena and the Hy-Vee Hall. Panels of dance industry professionals and leaders from across the nation judge our teams competing in a variety of 15 categories; the most popular being Pom. Champions of our state team competition are featured in our 90-minute televised championship show aired on Iowa PBS each year.
