This award is inspired by Mia Michael’s quote, “When your spirit dances…your body will follow,” and is given to a soloist that inspires us throughout the competition because they truly dance from the heart. Passion speaks louder than turns, leaps & tricks and High Demand appreciates that and would like to recognize that quality in a dancer.
HD wants to recognize the studio the brought fire and passion to their art form every time they stepped on stage. HD values the love and respect dancers, teachers, studio directors and families give one another at competitions and this studio went above and beyond both on and off the stage!
At every event, HD recognizes studios for their excellence in various standout areas of dance.
Overall highest scoring entry from the entire competition given in all three divisions that must receive a platinum or higher to qualify.

High Demand is a proud member of the ADCC and excited to award one studio per regional event with this prestigious title.
Our Performer of the Year Competition is HD’s version of a title event and the most prestigious solo dancer award! The competition is held in two age divisions: 12 & Under and 13 & Over. Dancers are scored on their selected solo in addition to a POY platform piece and interview question. POY performances will not be adjudicated or announced during awards ceremony in order to keep the winner a surprise. At the end of the season, we will announce the two winners with the highest total score virtually! Novice division soloist are not eligible.
The scholarship recipient will receive a class card package to Broadway Dance Center in NYC. The scholarship is given in honor of Sgt. Alessandro Plutino who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011. Sgt. Plutino is a soldier High Demand holds very close to their hearts and had a deep love and passion for his country. High Demand would like to honor their hero by presenting this award to a dancer that embodies the same fire for their passion of dance and whose hard work is recognized on the stage.
Every season HD strives to give our dancers scholarships to various dance centers and intensive programs. The programs recently awarded are listed on our homepage!
