Competitive cheer and dance is a continually growing industry with no real signs of stopping. Cheer, for example, was once regarded as solely a sideline activity at sporting events. Now cheerleading is a billion dollar industry with competitions all across the country and all across the world. 

Competitive dance has continued to be a lucrative industry with possibilities of scholarships and more as incentive for competing. While both cheer and dance competitions happen all across the country, it can be difficult to find a location to host these types of events and have them be in one centralized area. That’s where the Rocky Mount Event Center comes in!

Our huge 75,000 square feet of uninterrupted playing space is the perfect arena for cheer and dance. Our area can be converted to a 50’ x 94’ master event space that can seat over 4,000 spectators.
