Cosplay Dance Off, Where Street Dance meets Cosplay! Watch as our Cosplay Dance Off teams battle it out as your favorite characters against each other for that Convention’s Grand Champion title! Dance Off has been running strong for over 12 years now at east-coast conventions, Anime USA, Katsucon, MAGFest, and Anime Mid Atlantic. There have even been sister shows performed at other convention venues such as New York Anime Festival, Nekocon, Zenkaikon, and Animazement. Over the course of three rounds, our dancers will go team vs. team, 3 vs. 3, and the final round our Team Captains go head to head! Join us for the show! Anything can happen!
