Superstar Dance Academy (or simply Superstar Dance) is a rival studio to The Next Step.


Having become marketable after The Next Step's Regionals win, Chris leaves The Next Step to become the co-owner of Superstar Dance.[1]

Daniel becomes fed up with Kate's supposed ill-treatment of him and provides her with an ultimatum: give him the male solo for Absolute Dance Nationals, or he will leave the studio to attend Superstar Dance Academy (as Chris had promised him the male soloist position). When Kate says no, he leaves as promised.[2]

Superstar Dance Academy attends Nationals, but is eliminated after the first round of male soloists when Daniel loses to Eldon.[3]

The 17th annual Nationals is the third time that Superstar Dance attends Nationals, meaning that they must have won Regionals thrice.[3]
