- National Finals Information -
The Tremaine National Finals Convention and Competition takes place annually in Orlando, Florida, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. Invited to compete in the National Finals are the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Semi-Finals Winners from the Winter Tour Season. Along with the Competition, there is a four-day Dance Curriculum during Nationals because Dance Education is a necessity to the foundation of an excellent dancer.
 
*At the National Finals, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place Cash Prizes and Trophies are awarded to winning competition dance numbers within each age division (Junior, Teen, Senior) by category (solo, duo/trio, group, line, production) and dance style (ballet, jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, hip hop, lyrical jazz, tap, open). *Within each age division (Junior, Teen, Senior) Cash Prizes and/or Trophies are awarded for Judges Choice of Best Showmanship and National Solo High Score. Also announced at the National Finals Competition are the Nine High Score Numbers - National High Score Gold, National High Score Silver and National High Score Bronze - which will perform at the National Finals Gala, where they will compete for Performance of the Year. However, they do not find out which award they each received until the gala.
 
*One very special recognition is presented for the Performance of The Year. This winning competition number is chosen from the top awards in each age division, National High Score Gold, National High Score Silver and National High Score Bronze (nine total) by our Honored Celebrity Award Recipient(s), who choose their favorite number based strictly on their Gala performances and present them with the Performance of the Year Trophy and the Grand Prize Check.
