Can You Dance?

Regional Conventions

Dance Schools

Do you want your school to compete at CYD? 2020?

All dancers taking part in the CYD? Regional Competitions will need to buy a gold ticket. For each gold ticket (£38.50pp) your students will get:

3 x Masterclasses

The UK’s most in demand choreographers & dancers become your students’ tutors for the day, giving them the chance to work on the latest choreography and styles. They will each get a Masterclass in Contemporary, Commercial & Musical Theatre. We welcome all abilities from the age of 8 upwards.

Exhibition Entry

Our industry exhibition is packed full of performing arts & dance experts, dancers can seek career advice & discover college opportunities & buy the latest dance wear from our exhibitors. They can join in on our demo stage, there is a technique zone with free classes. Dancers will also get the chance to watch the top UK dance colleges perform on the main stage.

Competition Entry

You can enter two groups into the competition – 1 Junior (ages 8 to 13) & 1 Senior (ages 14+). Routines should be 2.30 long with an absolute maximum of 3 minutes (Any music over 3 minutes will be returned and asked to be cut). There is a minimum of 8 dancers per group with a maximum of 40 and you may enter any genre. You can also buy SILVER ENTRY tickets (£28.50pp) for dancers who aren’t taking part in the competition – this gives them 3 Masterclasses & Exhibition Entry (for ages 8+).


The top 3 Junior & top 3 Senior winners from all 8 of our Regional Conventions will go through to our Grand Finals for the chance to be crowned CYD? Champion of Champions taking place during the evening at our Super Convention at The M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool.

(All schools who take part in our regionals & don’t get through to the Final are eligible to receive a complimentary performance on our CYD? mainstage which is a friendly, non competitive showcase)


For any parents or family and friends who wish to come along and watch they need to buy BRONZE ENTRY tickets (£10.50pp) which gives them Competition & Masterclass Supporter tickets and also Exhibition Entry (Teachers & children under 5 enter free).

(All tickets will be posted out to you nearer the event. Unfortunately, if you book an event and are unable to attend, no refund will be given as spaces are very limited).

Dance Schools can buy group tickets directly through the CYD? Office. Please email, call 01623 237900 for more information or fill out the form below.
