The Online Dance Series provides fun, educational, and unique competitive dance experiences for ballroom dance enthusiasts.
Combining the opportunity to improve dancing skills while supporting one's competitive spirit; all from your own dance studio space.
Create & Achieve Your Ballroom Dancing Goals from Anywhere
Created during the Covid-19 pandemic, Jennifer Corey & Taylor Westfall wanted to provide an opportunity for students and teachers to continue to create & achieve their ballroom dancing goals.
Having competed for many years, we realized that this unique competition experience could benefit us all during the pandemic, but also help students & teachers anytime of year. ODS events are perfect for both the student who normally cannot afford a competition, as well as your avid competitor that wants valuable feedback from judges as a preparation tool for their next traditional in-person competition event.
Our events are inclusive to those that have medical conditions that may prevent them normally from participating in ballroom competitions, or currently can not dance with their partner or teacher do to the pandemic.
The idea of online dance competitions for ballroom dancers blossomed into not only a new way to participate in ballroom competitions from your own studio, but also a new scoring system was developed with the goal of the Online Dance Series being an additional tool for students to improve dancing skills through adjudicators' scores and written comments/feedback .
ODS is by no means a replacement for the traditional dancesport and ballroom competitions we all love, but instead we see ODS as a distinctive competitive activity with it's own style and benefits.
Benefits Include :
Continuing to create and achieve your dancing goals.
A "non-real time" online event. Video at your convenience on lessons, where ever your dancing space may be.

A great way for students on a budget to participate in competitions.

Ability to dance and compete from anywhere at your convenience!
