Kids Challenge

Kids challenge

The KidsChallenge is a dance project for children who are enthusiastic about dance, in which they learn a selection of choreographies (e.g. at home, in in dance classes or sports clubs or similar) and compete in a competition. Children love music and movement. They experience a sense of community with us and can also present the dances they have learned to a large audience. ​We offer the children a large dance floor (parquet) where they can dance the choreographies they have learned as a competition with other children. At the end, all children receive an award. No child goes away empty-handed. All are winners. The children are evaluated by the jury and divided into 3 groups. They can win 1-3 stars for their performance. In this way, we avoid children from 6th place "only" going home with a certificate of participation. The stars can also be collected on a stamp card. There is a small surprise for every 7 stars collected.


Target Group
All children who enjoy dancing are invited. Registration is done by the parent/guardian.


Date and Venue
The Kids Challenge will be held during the European Championships on the 25.05.2024. The time will be between 13:00-16:00 o’clock. The exact time will be communicated after the registration deadline.

Venue: Festhalle Stuttgart-Feuerbach
Kärntner Straße 48
70469 Stuttgart


- On arrival, the responsible accompanying person and the child/children will register at the registration desk.
- Before the competition, the children will gather in the staging area. From there, depending on the number of registrations, they will be led in one or more groups to the dance floor.
- There they will dance the dances they have learned individually with other participants on the dance floor.
- The music is counted.
- As a guide, they are accompanied by 2 dancers from our club.
- Our trained judges evaluate the performance, but the fun should be in the foreground.  
- After one dance they leave the dance floor again accompanied and wait in the staging area for the next performance (if they dance several dances).
- The award ceremony will take place about half an hour after the last competition round.

In the KidsChallenge, the competition is not divided into age categories. Instead, 3 challenges with different dances and levels are offered. The children decide (with the help of an adult if
necessary) which dance(s) they like best and are good at and therefore which challenge they want to take part in (participation is only possible in one challenge). Once they have made a
decision, the children are registered for the corresponding challenge.
