Virtual Dance Competition

Centre Stage Dance Challenge is excited to offer an online virtual dance competition to all dancers around the WORLD, during these difficult times.  Many dancers have not been able to compete their routines they have worked and trained so hard for this year due to COVID-19.  We at Centre Stage Dance Challenge would like to offer these dancers and studios a unique experience and give the dancers an opportunity to get critiqued from credible adjudicators while still giving them something to train for!

 

This being an entirely different event from our usual competitions, there will be specialized criteria added in regards to the rules/regulations only pertaining to this virtual competition.  The competition rules will remain the same for pre-competitive and competitive levels, age groups, and disciplines - these details can be found under "Competition Rules", however, the awards will be different.  As we are trying to keep the cost down for everyone as well as stop the transmission of COVID-19, there will be no trophies or medals awarded, only dancer placements announced in each category.  If you would like to purchase trophies or medals (with appropriate ribbon to score), they will be available at the end of the competition.  Please e-mail info@csdancechallenge.com for enquiries once the competition is over.  Plaques as well as any purchased trophies/medals will be mailed out to each studio once studio’s are able to resume classes and the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission has vastly decreased.
