  • Teachers/Studio Owners must be registered in order to attend or observe any levels of classes. 
  • Dancers may attend more than one city. 
  • There are no refunds under any circumstance. 
  • All dancers, owners, teachers, and observers should conduct themselves in a professional/appropriate manner at all times. 
  • Dancers must attend all classes in order to be eligible for scholarship auditions.

Auditions

Each class will have a “Most Inspiring Student” selected by the instructor. These awards will be presented at the end of the day.

There will be an audition process during one of the scheduled classes. Dancers must attend the full convention to be considered for one of the scholarships. The teachers will select the recipients based on their performance, their attitude, and skill throughout the day. We encourage all dancers to participate in this process for experience and feedback.
