Team Canada is excited to once again compete in the Commonwealth Cup Dance Championships (CCDC). The CCDC is an event that takes the best dancers from the Commonwealth Nations to compete. The commonwealth is a biannual event on the odd years. 2017 and 2019 were held in South Africa, but 2021 will be in AUSTRALIA! Prepare to join us now!
We will hold auditions so keep checking back with us or contact us to be put on the list. Also, studios may bring a group of their own dancers as well. Please contact us if this is something that may interest you.
CCDC is a DANCE CUP competition. This means that it is run more like our competitions, where you dance once and are awarded placement. We will still be awarded on the podiums. Overall dancers will compete in the final DANCE-OFF at the GALA on the final day of competition. There are awards for everyone, including ribbons, medals and/or trophies, and cash awards for top 3's. Dancers may enter in any genre they wish and may dance as often as they want. Entry fees are separate. Workshops are available from renown dance educators from around the Commonwealth.
THE DIFFERENCE: The WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS we regularly attend are considered the "Olympics of Dance". Each nation can only bring 3 of their top athletes for a week of intensive competition in one genre. The competition is fierce, unlike any other! The CCDC will be bringing together many of the same dancers to this competition, but they will be allowed to bring more dancers that can dance in more categories. Dancers from Canada, Gibraltar, Australia, South Africa and Malaysia have gone head to head for first place many times!!
