Katerina Marchio & Alessia Rotino

As artists our purpose is to CREATE , as dancers our purpose is to SHARE , and as a community our purpose is to EMPOWER .

Katerina Marchio and Alessia Rotino share a love and passion for dance. Together they have a combined 20 years of professional experience in the dance competition industry and in dance education. Dance has allowed them to discover their purpose and their goal is to facilitate an environment which inspires and nurtures the development of the next generation of dancers.

The Purpose Dance Competition experience will allow dancers to express their creativity, share their growth and empower their dance community. Dance gives us the opportunity to create new experiences, new friendships and new goals. Dance allows us to share our skills, our progress and our victories. Dance enables us to empower ourselves, our team and our competitors.


A Message From The Directors

To our valued Purpose family,

We want to thank you for your continued understanding and support throughout this time. We are working diligently to navigate the next steps for Purpose events with the health and safety of our dance community top of mind.

As we continue to monitor the development of the pandemic, we are working alongside our venue partners to make adjustments to future Purpose events as needed. We remain committed to devoting our time and energy into delivering the Purpose competition experience that the dancers have worked so hard for!

All information pertaining to Purpose policies on entry fees paid for the 2020 season has been sent directly to Studio Owners/Directors only. We will continue to be in communication with Studio Owners/Directors as we establish further plans for Purpose events.

We are looking forward to the day when dancers can return to the Purpose stage!

Stay safe,

Alessia & Kat
