All proceeds will go to help refugees fleeing Ukraine. Anyone can support the effort by attending in person, donating, or watching the video stream. In-person seating will be limited, but anyone can purchase the video stream and watch live or later.

    • More to come!

    As our hearts go out to Ukrainian citizens, we invite you to join us for an extraordinary evening with some of the world’s finest ballroom dancers, including Sasha Altukhov and Cheyenne Murrillo!

    Every penny of your donation goes directly to help refugees fleeing Ukraine in three ways:

    1. EMERGENCY SUPPLIES including food, clothing, diapers, and medicine.
    2. TEMPORARY HOUSING
    3. REFUGEE CENTER NEEDS including mattresses, bedding, and supplies.

    AAU Junior Olympics Survey

    Please see the information below about a survey to determine interest in dancing in the AAU Junior Olympic Games. The survey is due March 13.

    2022 West Coast AAU Junior Olympic Games

    Date: June 9-15
    Location: Payson Utah

    We will be welcoming dancers from across the western United States and also from outside the country.

    Normally, dancers must participate in a qualifying event in order to enter the Jr Olympic Games. However, due to the challenging circumstances of the past two years, this pre-requisite has been waived. ALL DANCERS are welcome to enter the games this year!

    The Dance Games will include Ballroom, Cabaret, Hip Hop, Break Dance, Contemporary, Jazz, Folk, Clogging, and more. There are events for both TEAM entries and INDIVIDUAL entries. There will be workshops in all styles of dance June 9-11, and the games will be held June 13-15.

    We have made a survey for both Coaches/Directors and Dancers to complete. This will help us to know who is coming and how many athletes to plan for. We would be very grateful if you would take a minute to fill it out.

    Click Here: WEST COAST AAU JR OLYMPIC GAMES SURVEY

    Please submit the survey by MARCH 13.

    Registration will be opening in March. We look forward to your participation in this year’s games!
