Note from Miss Kristen!
Hi Company Families!

I'm looking forward to another  AMAZING competition weekend with all of you! Woohoo!

Please take a moment to read through all of the information provided here! While many of the reminders and details are the same for this competition, there are a few important differences to note for this weekend!

(Also, please be sure to re-read all of the reminders to make sure you don't miss anything!)

First- NO PICTURES OR VIDEOS CAN BE TAKEN OF THE ROUTINES BY ANYONE AT ANY TIME! Please let any guests you are bringing or have invited know that they can not take pictures or video of the performances or our routines may be disqualified or lose points! There will be professional pictures/ video available to purchase. 

Second- this competition has a FREE APP that will give the schedule, what act they are on, how many routines until awards, etc... and will be super useful for the weekend! You can download the app here:


Third- A note on hair! Many ponytails and buns were not high enough at the last competition! Please watch the video tutorials again! Also, some of the hair styles have changed to help with quick changes!  Please click here to see the updated list!

Fourth- New Team Captains have been assigned to each routine! Please read the block below on Team Captains so you know what to expect during awards and who the team captains are- they will change each competition! IF YOU ARE NOT A TEAM CAPTAIN, PLEASE DO NOT STAND UP TO ACCEPT THE AWARD!

And as always, r emember  to
inspire, be positive and uplift 

Thank you all!  It's going to be an awesome weekend of dancing! Go CSA!

Important Competition Reminders!
1). Quadruple check your costumes!  Once you are at the competition there won't be time  to go back and get anything you've forgotten!

2). Pack the necessary items: make-up, hair gel and hairspray, wet wipes, bobby pins,  safety pins, q-tips and cotton balls, super glue or hot glue if you have it,  tights, dance shoes, hairpiece, and anything else you think you MIGHT need. 

(remember-  All solo/ duet/trio performers MUST wear tights for their performance! We feel that wearing tights presents a more polished appearance, especially when dancing under the stage lights!)

3). Arrive at the venue with plenty of time to find the group.  Double check the list for when you need to be there!!!  Remember, your dancer MUST be in the dressing room 2 hours before their scheduled time.  

4). Parents and families wear CS gear or colors if you have it to show your  spirit!!  Plus, it help us find you in the crowd!  :-)

5). If you need anything call or text me at:

6). Sign up for the CS Company Team App if you haven't already! Parents AND Dancers should sign up (if you have a device)!!! We will be using it to keep everyone informed of last minute information! 

7). Remember, NO PHOTO OR VIDEO may be taken inside the competition!  Violating this policy could result in our  disqualification or loss of points so please take this very seriously.  

8). Please be respectful at the competition! We don't want to be known as the stu dio who complains or has a bad attitude!

Team Captains!
Team captains are  assigned for each group and are responsible for getting awards for their dance!

Captains will need to be sure they know their teacher's name, name of our studio (Center Stage Academy of the Performing Arts), and the number of their routine! 
They  will meet Miss Kristen  outside of the dressing room after the awards to give her any pins, medals, ribbons, trophies  they receive.

Awards should not be passed out on stage!  They will be handed approximately a week after the competition at the studio.

Captains will be different for each competition! Please only stand up to accept the award if you are the Team Captain!
