Step Up featuring Australian Dance Cup

Step Up is the Gold Coast's only beach-side Dance Eisteddfod and Festival, attracting dance competitors and professionals from around the globe. For the second year we've partnered with the Australian Dance Cup (ADC) to provide a platform for a host of local, national and international dancers to bring their world-class routines and newest dance moves to Surfers Paradise. Join us on the weekend of Friday 27th - Sunday 29th April as the precinct transcends into a rhythmic oasis!

Step Up will transform Surfers Paradise beachfront into a pulsing dance arena with a marquee and professional dance stage. Dance-lovers will compete in a range of competition genres including hip hop and mixed styles, break dance, samba and reggaeton, with an overall prize pool of up to $5000 up for grabs!

The Australian Dance Cup (ADC) is the biggest adult dance competition in Australia, comprising 42 workshops in three days, four nights of parties, plus a concert on our pristine beachfront. Ticket holders can spectate, try a range of free dance classes or just party the night away social dancing with the ADC competitors! For more details visit our Australian Dance Cup page.

Step Up offers a packed event schedule so make you stay on top of your groove game and refuel during the competition by enjoying a meal at one of the many restaurants in Surfers Paradise. For a diverse range of dining options visit Where to Eat.

For that much needed caffeine hit, Salt Meats Cheese will be serving beverages from their Coffee Cart on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th from 10am til 3pm.
