 Due to restrictions and concerns regarding COVID-19,the 2020 California Star Ball has been cancelled. 

We hope to see you on November 26-28, 2021, to celebrate our 60th Anniversary


It is with much disappointment and sadness that we have decided to cancel this year's California Star Ball.  We have been monitoring this very dynamic situation closely, and unfortunately, the situation in Los Angeles has not improved and statewide restrictions will likely be in place for the rest of the year.  Further, The health and safety of our clients, guests and staff are our top priorities, and we cannot see a way in which we can hold the competition in a safe manner.

This year would have been out 60th anniversary celebration.  We can only hope that the relationships we have built with so many in the dance industry over the past 60 years will continue on.  We hope you will join us next year as we plan our anniversary celebration and to help make the 2021 competition the best ever.

Please stay safe and healthy and thank you for your continued support
