UpStaged Entertainment Group presents the 2023 National Collegiate Performing Arts (NCPA)™ and National High School Performing Arts (NHSPA)™ Championships live from Harlem’s World-Famous Apollo Theater in NYC.

With hundreds of the Nation’s best college/high school step performers, the Championships feature a dynamic “March Madness” type bracket structure, with Division champions, a Final Four and championship head-to-head Step-Offs. The UpStaged (NHSPA/NCPA parent company) mission is to empower our nation’s 7.5 million college/high school performers across 25 performing genres (Step, A cappella, dance etc.) with similar opportunities as student athletes for competition, community, and glory.
