The Gold Coast National Finals, held annually at Jupiter’s Casino, have always offered many opportunities to dance schools, including the ever popular Summer Dance Workshops held during the event and the Battle of the Star Show held on the last day, which has the best of the best dance schools in the nation compete for the overall titles.
Jupiter’s Showroom has just undergone a 20 million dollar upgrade and the dancers at Nationals this year will be having the opportunity to perform in the best and newest performance venue in Australia.
Showcase has always been the leader in offering massive prizes and this past year was no exception.
