Cathy Roe
Information about the Cathy Roe Competition, (tentative schedule, address, etc...) can now be found on the Company Webpage! 

Remember! Even if you only compete on Saturday- your routine may be selected for the Choreography and Entertainment Review Sunday evening! This means you would need to be there Sunday evening as well if your routine is selected!

You can also find the exact location, complete with a map, via the CS Company Team App! Simply click on the Events button on the homepage of the app!

Note from Miss Kristen!
Hi Company Families!

The excitement just keeps building as we get closer and closer to our first competition!!!

There is a lot to do to make sure everyone is ready for the first competition. Please make sure you have taken care of your shoes, tights, earrings, hairpieces, etc... ASAP! 

We WILL be having dress rehearsals prior to the Cathy Roe competition! Due to scheduling issues, they will be done throughout the week, not all on one day. The Production Line will rehearse with ALL dancers on Thursday, March 10th from 7:30-8:30pm! 

I will have the final rehearsal schedule ready soon for all of the routines and will send it out via email and will have it on the  Company  Webpage for your reference ASAP! 

I have just received a tentative schedule for Cathy Roe and am sharing it with you now so you can have an idea of what to expect for times that weekend! Keep in mind that this is ONLY A ROUGH DRAFT! There are typos and changes to the schedule may still be made!!! The FINAL schedule will be sent to me 7-10 days prior to the competition and I'll share it with you when I receive it! 

Please note! Cathy Roe has a Choreography and Entertainment Review on Sunday Evening that could include dances that competed Saturday. This would mean you may have to come back Sunday evening to compete again if you are selected! Please keep your schedule open just in case! 

Talent on Parade Entry Fees are due by Wednesday, March 9th! 
Solos: $105 each solo
Duets: $55 each dancers
Trios: $50 each dancer
Optional- Title (TOP Entertainer): add $35 to each solo
