Upgrade DC is the freshest new Urban International Dance Competition created by Taneikah Wescombe. In 2020, UPGRADE will host qualifier events across Australia and New Zealand as well as an online qualifier option for those outside of qualifier regions, in the lead up to an epic 4-day UPGRADE FINALS EXPERIENCE including Finals, Dance Camp & Battle events held on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia.


We are proud to host a dance event with the primary focus on “celebrating and connecting choreographers, dancers, the community and the culture”. We are striving to create an inclusive, fun, professional, quality, one of a kind event with contagious energy, good vibes and the freedom for choreographers and dancers to be themselves. Our aim is to stimulate the development of connection in the community, between individuals, teams and all supporters, as well as an encouraging competition atmosphere for and between all competitors.

“Train, Grow, Connect, Compete, Inspire, Be Inspired and UPGRADE”
