Classical Ballet and Contemporary Dance Competitions, and Scholarship programs.
Created and Directed by Conny Mathot (see her bio on website), CDC is built on a platform of integrity and fairness for all participants. It's said that necessity is the mother of all invention. Conny has dedicated her entire life to the art of Ballet. A strong desire to better the industry has driven Conny to re-invent Ballet Dance Competition, setting a new standard of excellence. Her experience and expertise in the Ballet industry has afforded her the skill necessary to form and lead California Dance Classics (CDC). We are determined to deliver a World Class event, benefiting all those who participate, fairly and accurately.
Many elements of our model set us apart and above. Our primary focus is on the Ballet Dancer and their experience at our competition events. We accomplish this by delivering what has long been missed in the dance competition industry; Integrity. We offer highly qualified and well respected Judges, fairness in age grouping and performance time allowances, clear and constructive critique reports, guidance during our pre-competition Master Class, and a positive on-stage dancing experience for each and every CDC competition participant.
CDC Judges are selected through a strict vetting process. Those considered for this critical position must have an appreciation for Ballet, knowledge of the art, a positive reputation, solid experience, and a genuine desire to encourage our participants. OUR JUDGES WILL NOT SCORE BASED ON FAVORITISM, NEPOTISM, OR ANY OTHER UNFAIR BIAS.
