Started by Cindy Linde in 2005, the Dance Talent Competition was created as an opportunity for dancers to receive outside training by bringing it to the area. It has always been very important to Cindy to bring professionals from around the country to teach us, train us, and critique us as we do not have this opportunity as abundantly in this part of the country. The Dance Talent Competition has developed into a competition that prides it's self in bringing in nationally acclaimed judges from internationally recognized studios and performing groups around the country. While creating a positive, exciting, and learning atmosphere for all dancers, Cindy does her best to make a comfortable experience for teachers, parents, and all in attendance. Cindy is dedicated to providing excellence, working to constantly improve the event, and, at all times, maintaining the highest ethical standards.
