Moving People Dance Opportunities
New York City Dance Alliance
National Convention / Competition
We would like to take students to the NYCDA Convention in Denver Colorado. This is an opportunity to dance with hundreds of other students from all over the country, take classes from master teachers, audition for scholarships and awards, and attend special seminars geared towards talking about options for dance after high school. NYCDA is one of the best of its kind and last year they gave away over $320,000 in college scholarships at their national convention in NYC as well as numerous scholarships and cash awards at all of their regional conventions. This is always a fun educational experience that contributes to boosting confidence, encouraging growth and camaraderie and helping prepare students for future audition experiences.
If you are interested in attending please contact Layla ASAP
