It is with a heavy heart that we must announce Velocity’s cancellation of our 2020 Season Finale at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, NV.  

As you are aware, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the dance world and on all event-based industries. Velocity is no exception. In order to speed recovery from this pandemic and safeguard public health, we feel that the safest and most responsible course of action is to cancel our Season Finale event for 2020.

To all dancers, we particularly wish to apologize. Our Season Finale is much more than just a dance event in so many ways. From seeing individual breakthroughs, studio team building, to forming new friendships, Season Finale has always been diverse and exciting. It represents the culmination of countless hours of work and effort on your part and showcases your talents in a truly unforgettable way. We know we speak for all of the Velocity family when we say that we look forward to our Season Finale all year long. We love nothing more than seeing the progress and success of every student. These are the reasons we do what we do. As devastating as it is not to have the opportunity to participate in Velocity Nationals 2020, we sincerely hope that you will each continue practicing and persevering on your dance journey with your studios. We will welcome you with open arms in 2021, and are sure to have a Season Finale better than before at our new location, The Mirage Las Vegas!

Many of you may have questions regarding how certain specifics, such as how already received scholarships will be handled. We have created this page to answer those questions. Please see below.

Again, thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding. All of us at Velocity hope to be dancing with you again soon! 

Stay Safe

Stay Healthy

and

Sincerely,

Eve Mason and Cory Jones | Co- Owners and Directors

Please know that if a student was awarded a MVA scholarship in an age division in which they are moving out of in the 2020-2021 Season, that student will have to compete at our 2021 Season Finale in their appropriate age division as of January 1st, 2021. For example: If you were awarded a MVA scholarship in our Mini room during our 2020 season but would be considered a Junior in 2021 due to age, you will use your MVA scholarship as a Junior during our 2021 Season Finale.
