A WHOLE NEW CYD? CONVENTION DEDICATED TO THE FREESTYLE WORLD! 

This new convention hosted at the Winter Gardens Blackpool on 22nd September, will include 30 masterclasses led by 15 esteemed ADFP freestyle and CYD? faculty members, the CYD? Freestyle performance showcase highlighting the finest freestyle dancers who have been invited to perform and our interactive dance exhibition featuring Acropad, Showtime Circus, and more promises an engaging experience.

Renowned for our expansive opportunities, CYD? will also grant scholarships to diverse training programmes/college auditions, present dancers with certificates and medals, scout for talent, and offer exciting prizes.

Our aim at CYD? is to help bridge the gap between the different dance worlds and give freestyle dancers the platform, opportunities and national recognition they deserve.

MASTERCLASSES

Our choreographers & dance educators are the best in the business and are hand selected based on their teaching experience. You can create your own dance timetable from a variety of styles. All Masterclass capacities are capped and we welcome dancers from the age of 8+ (Masterclass faculty may change, CYD? holds the right to offer a replacement tutor of comparable background)

PERFORMANCES

(By invitation only) This is a great opportunity for us to showcase and celebrate Freestyle dance on a professional platform, spotlighting diverse talents and styles within the Freestyle community! The performances, whether high energy or slow and expressive, aim to inspire other dancers and encourage them to explore their own artistic creativity, individuality and potential.

EXHIBITION

The CYD? exhibition is packed full of dance experts and dancewear brands all under one roof!  Alongside this, we have the Showtime Circus Experience and AcroPAD as well as fun social zones and photo opportunities!
