Dance comps cancelled?

Consider “Last Call” offered by hosts at Nationals.  It allows you to qualify regionally at the last possible moment.  Be sure to collect and review regional score and comments before competing again for Nationals.

Consider extending the cycle of your solo piece through January 2021.  It can be used for early competitions in the 2021 season. You will be masterful in execution of this 2020 routine due to practice, practice, practice! 

Some of our customers run their routines for two years!

Be sure to contact us directly if you have any concerns or questions.

Thank you for your understanding during this time.  Be safe!
