Can You Dance?

The History of CYD?

Can You Dance? was formed in 2012 after Matt & Tom met on the BBC 1 TV show ‘So you think you can dance.’ They began with one event and have now grown to 8 regional Conventions, 12 Intensives, their flagship event – the CYD? Super Convention, a Teachers Convention and the CYD? Dance Stars Company!

CYD? is at the forefront of the dance events industry and can be credited for introducing the dance convention scene to the UK. During the last few years CYD? has handed out full scholarships to the top Performing Arts Colleges worth over £500,000 and found the next ambassadors for two of the largest Global Dancewear brands.

CYD? has been developed to create a platform where dancers can be educated and inspired in a supportive and professional environment. CYD? have always, and will always, put dancers at the forefront. Every one of our events has been designed around their experience with us. We are very excited for our future and to keep growing our CYD? events and we would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support!
