Can You Dance?

Why Join Us?

The CYD? convention experience is unique and unlike any other event out there!  Since 2011 we have been touring the UK and we now have over 500 schools join us per year with 27,000 dance enthusiasts attending our events! 

If you are looking for new experiences for your school, our convention provides a positive, friendly environment that will leave dancers feeling inspired. Gold tickets are £39 per dancer.

For 2021 the top 2 Junior & top 2 Senior winners from each Regional will qualify for the finals and compete against other dance schools from across the UK for the chance to win the CYD? Champion of Champions title being held in October 2022 at the CYD? Super Convention in Liverpool at the M&S bank arena!

We award a CYD? trophy to the top 3 Junior & top 3 Senior winners at all 8 of our Regional Conventions! Whether you are new to competing or have a lot of experience, we welcome everyone! All we ask is that dancers are aged 8 upwards and you have a minimum of 8 in your team!


Our CYD? choreographers & dance educators are the best in the business, we hand select our faculty based on their teaching experience. Each student will get a Masterclass in Contemporary, Commercial & Musical Theatre. All Masterclass capacities are capped to ensure a positive experience. We welcome & encourage dancers of all abilities from the age of 8 upwards.


Our CYD? exhibition is packed full of top performing arts college, dance experts and dancewear brands. Whether it’s the newest dancewear collection you’re looking for or career advice, we have everything you will need under one roof! Dancers can join in the performances & competitions on our demo stage and they will also get the chance to watch the top UK dance colleges perform on the main stage.




You can enter two groups into the competition – 1 Junior (ages 8 to 13) & 1 Senior (ages 14+).
