Touring 8 REGIONAL CONVENTIONS across the UK, bringing the very best masterclasses, showcase competition & dance exhibition a lot closer to you! Plus global dance brand ambassador searches & college scholarships!
The SUPER CONVENTION is at the iconic Echo Arena & Exhibition hall on the 29th 30th September 2018. With over 70 MASTERCLASSES to choose from, a bespoke full production MAIN STAGE build for dance schools to showcase, a huge INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION, and much more!
Matt works across many areas of the industry – choreographing hit shows like Strictly Come Dancing & Saturday Night Takeaway to West End & Regional musical productions. Matt is proud to have co-created CYD? & looks forward to the new ventures that 2018 has in store!
Tom is a Freelance Event Producer and Choreographer having worked on high profile fashion shows, product launches, corporate events and hair shows. His passion for teaching has allowed him to create Can You Dance? alongside his close friend Matt Flint.
CYD? has been a great way to connect with our customers and other industry people doing similar work and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience to be at the heart of all things dance. Fantastic networking exposure and a great source of forecast for brands. Each event has inspired us with new ideas and how we can make an impact in our own organisation. What Matt and Tom have created and established is a very special annual interactive dance exhibition that the UK’s leading dance schools and dancers look forward to attending each year. Very well organised, always enthusiastic and a helpful team to work with. CYD? 2018, let’s go!
