Dance Competitions

We do not consider ourselves a "competition" studio. 

We do attend 1-2  local competitions a year, only for the experience & performance opportunity it provides our students.

Only our advanced dancers go to these events with their teacher's permission. 

This year we are attending:

Applause Talent Competition: April 12 & 13, Cleveland

Cathy Roe's CRU: May 3-5, Akron

All Ohio Dance Festival

We are extremely proud that DDDS has been invited to this outstanding event for many years now!

It's a wonderful opportunity for our students to get to know other dancers from other Ohio studios. 

The focus of the Festival is to promote friendships between dancers, teachers & studios.

Students take master classes during the day & then perform their own studio pieces in the evening.  There is no judging!

It's a positive experience & a great alternative to competitions!

This year's Festival will be held Saturday, April 27th  at Richland Academy & the Renaissance Theatre, Mansfield, OH
