Miss Blair will have more specifics on dressing room and meeting space once she is there on Friday night and will send out an email and edit this page with updates.

Dancers should not attend classes they take or demonstrate for on Saturday, April 27th.

  • Arrive in full makeup and hair done with tights for first routine under warmup suit. Soloists arrive in costume under warmup suit. Other dancers may arrive in first costume if you would like, under warmup suit.
  • Friday soloists meet Miss Blair at entrance. I will text you to confirm once I arrive.
  • Saturday and Sunday meeting spot TBA - either entrance or dressing room.
  • Once dancers arrive they must stay until the end of the Awards Ceremony.
  • Dancers are not permitted to leave the building until picked up by their parent/guardian at the end of the Awards Ceremony and check out with Miss Blair.
  • Dancer dressing room is for dancers and CDDS staff only. It is a shared space and space is limited. Condense costumes, shoes, etc. in to a garment bag/rack and roll. Bring healthy food and drinks in a small lunchbox, no big coolers (stain free as much as possible). No photos in dressing room.
  • Parents and friends are welcome to watch in the audience!
  • If dancers are attending as audience members to support their friends on days they are not performing, remember you are representing CDDS at all times and should be wearing your warmup jacket. CDDS staff is not responsible for monitoring dancers who attend as audience members on days they are not performing.
SDA Competition Audience/Auditorium Policies:
  • NO PHOTO/VIDEO in audience. This is the competition policy and if you are caught they will penalize our Studio/dancers may be disqualified.
  • No food or drink in the auditorium.
Hair: All dancers need to gel their hair back slick - no fly aways!
Solos: TBD
Company Recital Hair, two braids tucked - All Saturday dances (You Will Be Found, Happiness Does Not Wait, Paint It Black, Breakaway, Le Jazz Hot, Neverland)
Straightened High Ponytail - All Sunday dances (Burn It Up, Wonderful Day)

Camisole: We discussed in class that most routines won't be wearing one, but, some dancers may wear a cami bra as long as it doesn't show under the costume. Bring your full camisole and cami-bra if you have.

What to bring: extra clean tights, all dance shoes, company required black leotard, leggings and shorts, camisole, makeup, hairspray/gel, healthy snacks & drink. Pack lightly and condensed because space is limited and shared in the dressing room.
