Our Mission

The Directors of the Platinum Performing Arts Competition have collectively over 100 years of dance experience. Our Directors took dance as students, became Professional Dancers, and then took it to the next level becoming Professional Dance Directors, Dance Teachers, Choreographers, Studio Owners and Dance Judges. Having undertaken every aspect a Dance Director/Teacher has to do, we know what YOU do, and we appreciate your talent, hard work, and exhaustive energy in bringing it all together for your students.

We invite you to join us and re-energize yourself.  Come be part of something that is geared toward YOU, where you are appreciated for all that YOU do.


  • An educated, positive and fun experience for your students
  • A stress free environment for your parents
  • A positive, reinforcing and re-energizing experience for the
    Directors / Teachers.
  • We want to thank you, for all YOU do. Come join us in our new endeavor.  We strive to provide a professional, organized, and educational experience in a family friendly environment.

Our hope is that all performers will appreciate their love of dance more, in a place where there are no limits to what each student can attain.  Their only competition is to challenge themselves in their art of dance.  We at PLATINUM PERFORMING ARTS COMPETITION are dedicated to bringing a positive atmosphere and building self confidence for every performer from the Beginner through to the Advanced Dancer.

By bringing experienced Judges and Staff to every competition, we ensure that your experience is a true PLATINUM EXPERIENCE.

Thank you to all our Directors, Teachers, Parents and most of all today’s Performers!!  Good Luck to all of you!!

Yours in Dance, Janine and Kathy
