The showcase features the finest ballroom dancing from university students and the surrounding intermountain west competitors. The event is sanctioned by the National Dance Council of America and presented by the Brigham Young University Ballroom Dance Division.

More than forty competitive categories give beginning, intermediate and advanced dancers the opportunity to showcase their ballroom talents. Hundreds of ballroom dance couples of all ages are also able to vie for championship titles in the open categories of Latin, Ballroom, Smooth, Rhythm and Cabaret.
