MP FINALIST

NEW! Dancers who are interested in competing for Magic Performer of the Year may now pre-qualify at an LADM regional event.  Interested dancers may compete a solo in our regional competition and register for the MP FINALIST program.  Any of these registered dancers who receive a platinum or double platinum medal placement for their solo will qualify as an MP FINALIST.  Dancers who qualify as an MP FINALIST by scoring platinum or double platinum will be invited to attend this season’s National Finals and participate in the MP EXPERIENCE, to compete for the title MAGIC PERFORMER OF THE YEAR.

In order to participate in our regional MP FINALIST program dancers must:

  • 1. Attend a regional event this season.
  • 2. Register and compete in a group routine.
  • 3. Register and compete a solo.  Exhibition solos are not eligible.

To register, please select MP FINALIST for each solo you would like to enter through our online convention and competition registration system.  Dancers may enter multiple solos for MP FINALIST.  A fee of $35 will be charged per entry.  Winners will be announced during solo awards for each age division.  Exhibition solos are not eligible to compete for MP FINALIST.  However, all registered dancers who participate in our competition, exhibition solos included, are invited to attend Scholarship Auditions and audition for Magic Performer of the Weekend.  Dancers who participate in the MP FINALIST program are still eligible to audition for Magic Performer of the Weekend.
