Until recently we had been holding out hope that the coronavirus emergency would take a dramatic turn for the best and our Kansas City Regional Competition would be allowed to proceed as scheduled. Unfortunately, that’s hasn’t happened, and the “stay-at-home” order issued by the City of Overland Park means the Convention Center will still be closed during our contracted show dates.
All paid fees will remain on your studio account as credit for use at a future TOP event, and that credit will not expire until you use it later this year, anytime next year, or beyond. Our next show in the Kansas City area, which we encourage you to consider, is our Kansas City Nationals scheduled for July 7-12. Any paid acts that were entered for a postponed regional event can roll to a national event at the regional prices, and no regional qualifying is necessary for them this year.
We are also working on putting together an expanded Kansas City Dance Directive event that will include both competition and convention the weekend of October 10-11. More information about that will be posted soon.
Parents: We understand that there are lots of questions to be asked, and concerns to be shared, but please direct all your communication through your studio director. Do not call or email the office. We will only be communicating with studio directors at this time.
Studio Directors: This is an unprecedented time in the history of our country (and the world). Once we’ve been cleared to re-open our offices and host shows again, we will reach out to make arrangements going forward. We very much appreciate your patience, understanding, and continued support.
Stay safe. Stay well. Keep dancing.
