CSD’s Competitive Program is designed for students who display exemplary technique and above average development potential. This process will not only further your child’s dance technique and abilities, but will also help to develop them as confident performers.
Our teachers and choreographers are constantly assessing each dancer’s progress and promotion into the competitive program is by invitation, based on each child’s performance, potential, and commitment. We train for the opportunity to compete. We compete for the opportunity to challenge the best of the best. Therefore, each member of the team is equally responsible to uphold their commitment.
CSD achievements are enviable as many of our dancers hold individual titles and groups hold overall awards at Regional and National levels, and our choreographers have numerous accolades to their credit.
