Dancers attended The PULSE tour to take classes and workshops, perform in competitions and more with guidance from celebrity choreographers.

Children, teens and adults will get a chance to dance like the stars by learning from the best. A group of celebrity choreographers plan to take over Atlantic City and provide workshops, classes and more.

The PULSE On Tour, a three-day dancing convention, will take place at Harrah’s Resort and it invites dancers as young as 7 years old to join the choreographers behind popular television shows, movies and performers.

The PULSE On Tour first appeared in Atlantic City in 2004.

Classes and workshops will be taught by choreographers like Brian Friedman, who works with pop stars Justin Bieber and Britney Spears; Tricia Miranda, who works with singers Missy Elliot and Demi Lovato; and Ian Eastwood, who works with Zendaya and Tori Kelly.

Professional choreographers from television shows and movies will be there as well. Cris Judd, from NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” Dave Scott, from FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and Step Up 3, and Brooke Lipton, from FOX’s “Glee,” will hold classes over the weekend.

The tour is open to four different levels of skill with suggested age ranges: intermediate, high intermediate, advanced and pro. Events will kick off on Friday with Battle Royale Regionals, a performance competition that will continue into the second night of the tour.

For younger dancers, the tour is offering workshops and classes through Camp PULSE for children and teens ages 7 to 13 years old. Instructors and choreographers came from shows, movies and celebrity performers like “High School Musical,” Kelly Clarkson, “Victorious,” “iCarly,” Taylor Swift and "Teen Beach Movie."

Lane Napper, an acting coach who has worked for Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, CBS, Disney and more, will teach an acting workshop for television, film and stage to PULSE attendees at an additional cost.

In addition to workshops, classes and performances, the PULSE tour will hold seminars, award scholarships, meet and greets, offer headshot opportunities and question and answer sessions with the professional dancers. 

Registration is available on-site all weekend starting Friday. All registration fees must be paid in cash.
