CELEBRATING 51 YEARS OF U.S. NATIONALS FOR DANCE TEAMS, DRILL TEAMS, POM/SONG TEAMS & DANCE STUDIOS… MAKE HISTORY WITH US IN 2018!
MDDTUSA is the wikipedia verified first & most prestigious U.S. national dance competition for dance teams, drill teams, and dance studios featuring the legally trademarked national/international solo title pageant and team dance competition. Our events offer passion & professionalism, and are held at beautiful venues where performances are conducted with efficiency and most of all a rewarding, positive & supportive environment where your students will be motivated & inspired.
These days, dance competitions are “a dime a dozen”. And recycled choreography can be taught at any workshop/convention. But we want your students to walk away with more than that. We want them to leave with more drive, determination, passion, and to rediscover why they love to dance! Unlike other dance competitions that are in the business to make a profit for someone else’s pockets, Miss Dance Drill Team USA is the only national dance competition that started off as a non-profit organization… and to this day we still operate in the same capacity. Our founder, the legendary Dr. Kay Crawford wanted it that way. So that’s how it will stay.
And that means MDDTUSA is always looking for ways to bring your dance students an experience they will never forget. Whether through national and international dance competitions against the best dancers in the nation and the world, or via academic scholarships awarded by the Kay T. Crawford Scholarship Fund, our goal is simple: Put the kids first!
Dr. Crawford created Miss Dance Drill Team USA for YOU! We’d love to see you at our next event. Please join us. Thank you for your continued support!
