Positive, Inspirational and Quality Dance Training
5129 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073

All company dancers need to attend at least one Convention.  DMI is mandatory and will count as one convention.  Many dancers feel that conventions help them improve and may decide to attend more than the one mandatory convention.  Note - We cannot guarantee that our staff will be present at all of them.

Competitions Attached to Conventions

  • Several Conventions have attached Competitions. We typically do not perform Group Routines at Convention/Competitions unless an entire group is attending the same Convention.
  • Many Convention/Competitions have a limit as to how many solos can be entered. Please do not assume that you will be able to compete your solo at these events. We typically pick solos to compete at these events based upon the student’s group level and age.

Observer Fees

  • Most Conventions have observer fees, that means parents must purchase a ticket (or possibly a wristband) to see the event. The observer fee only needs to be paid if the parent wishes to actually go into the classrooms and watch the classes. You do not have to pay an observer fee if you plan to stay in the building but do not plan on going into the classrooms. Note: If there is an optional competition attached to the convention, they usually allow the audience in without charge (or with minimal charge). On the events listed below, it should state if observer fees are required.

PS – There are so many conventions out there!  If there is one you would like to attend but it is not listed, please contact us and we can get you registered.
