Formed 6 years ago by friends Matt Flint & Tom Shilcock, CYD? has taken off beyond expectations to become a leading dance event in the UK.
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!
Quick shout out to Tom Shilcock and Matt Flint .. what you guys have set up over the years with Can You Dance? is so special. Getting the whole country to train properly and have some healthy competition. I look forward to your events all year and am so proud to be a part of your faculty.. inspiring the younger generation. To any dance schools looking for a convention to take part in I definitely advise this one. X X
