Shows, Battles


An important part of STF is the time outside the dance studio, socializing and sharing with other dancers from all around the world. We offer many different activities like the All Style Battle, Live Music Jam, performances, Cutting Contest, and the Faculty Gala. There is also a faculty tap talk, movie showings & history lectures, where you get a chance to hear from the more experienced dancers and get a better knowledge of our art form. Events are open for anyone who wants to enjoy dance and live music, both as participants and spectators, invite all friends and family!
