Your Requests were Heard!
We have reduced the number of classes as well as the one day convention fee at our events this year to allow plenty of time for your dancers to eat, recover, and get ready for competition.
Our Day Two Convention was newly developed in conjunction with our exisitng Fresh Moves in-house studio tour and will be the normal rate. Day Two requires an advanced registration as we only do 1-2 per regional location. Call and book early. In addition, you must also be registered for the Day One Convention.
