A Few 'Things You Need To Know' for our CCDS Families

  • This is a dance competition for both, clogging and hip hop

  • We highly encourage dancers to try at least 1 additional event, other than team dances. Solos, duets, etcs. There is something for everyone.  Instructors and assistants are available to work with your dancers.  There are additional fees outside monthly tuition, look for the pricing guide posted at the studio.

  • A common question from parents, what time will my dancer compete?  We will have an idea of the schedule 5-7 days before the competition (this gives us time to receive late registrations and compile the programs, however, we will not be able to give you a specific time.) Please plan to attend this all-day event.

  • Teams must sit together.  Easier to find you and a better chance of dancers not missing competing or awards.  

  • Dancers must be in full makeup and hair. Hair should not have any ‘whispies’. Instructors will provide hair style

  • Dancers must not have any missing costume pieces. This will prevent your dancer from competing

  • Dancers shoes must be completely polished

    • There is a spray polish available that can be ordered through the studio. Please email us if interested. The cost is approximately $15+tax for the kit (includes remover and polish)

  • Feel free to bring games, toys, etc. to keep those kids busy

  • Parents are responsible to know when their dancer should head backstage (for competing or awards).  Pay attention to the MC, program and partner with other parents to help each other out.

  • Parents need to be aware when dancers will need to change and how quickly they will need to change.


Here is a tentative schedule of events.  Your instructor will communicate your expected arrival time.  This is an all-day event, so please plan accordingly.
