The 19th Annual Absolute Dance Regionals in Region 7 is set in Season 6 from "No Shell" to "Piano Man". It takes place in 2017.

The SNR Network coverage of the event is hosted by Giselle Bellamy and Chuck Anderson.

The winner is The Next Step Dance Studio.

Except for Gemini Dance Studio, who having won the 18th Annual Absolute Dance Internationals did not have to, and AcroNation who won the wild card spot, all attending studios had to submit a qualifier video and the best were chosen.


Like with Region 7's previous Absolute Dance Regionals, a qualifier precedes this competition. Although, this time it is a video that must be submitted to a panel of judges, who will ultimately pick the ones deemed adequate enough to warrant a spot to compete at Regionals. Seeing at they won Internationals, Gemini Dance Studio automatically qualifies for this competition.[1] Aside from these studios, AcroNation qualifies for Regionals via the wildcard spot at Absolute Dance WildStylz Convention.[2]



From The Next Step, Finn, Henry, Jacquie, Kenzie, Noah and Summer perform a group dance and win 90 points.[3]


From The Next Step, Kingston, Noah, Ozzy, Piper and Summer perform a group dance and win 80 points.[3]


From The Next Step, Noah and Richelle perform a pas de deux.[3]

Qualifying teams

  1. Encore Dance Studios
  2. AcroNation
  3. The Next Step Dance Studio

Ten-person dance (finals)

Encore wins but due to Miss Angela copying a routine and attempting to bribe a judge, they are disqualified.[4]


The Next Step and AcroNation compete in the tie-breaker round. The Next Step wins and qualifies for Nationals.[5]


All 10 dancers in a dance troupe (and their alternates) have to be under 18 to perform at the Intermediate division at Regionals. Otherwise, they have to take place in the Senior Advanced division.[6]

After the three rounds (Hip-hop, Contemporary and Ballet), the top three teams qualify for the finals.
