We are California Dance Classics (CDC), offering Classical Ballet and Contemporary Dance Competitions and Scholarship programs. Welcome.
Created and Directed by Conny Mathot (see bio), 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 Classical Ballet and Contemporary 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. 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. Please review their bio’s listed under the “Judges & Awards” tab.
OUR JUDGES WILL NOT SCORE BASED ON FAVORITISM, NEPOTISM, OR ANY OTHER UNFAIR BIAS.
Age grouping is key in offering a fair and balanced judging platform. We avoid putting the little ones up against those who may be older and more skilled. Take a look at our “Performance Information” tab. This process eliminates unnecessary pressure on the dancers, and a more fair opportunity to gain recognition.
Our event Venues are also carefully considered and inspected to ensure a safe, comfortable, and clean environment. We know the time spent back-stage is an important part of the overall experience. Our Venues offer multiple and clean restrooms, ample space for dressing and changing, large stages with proper flooring, comfortable seating for audience attendees, and much more. Venue locations are also reviewed carefully. You’ll find special rates on quality hotels nearby, easy access to parking, and local attractions for your down time.
“We are committed to delivering a respectful, professional, and caring event while inspiring and nurturing the love of dance” – Conny Mathot
We encourage your feedback in helping us to make our events the best experience possible, for participants, teachers, family and friends.
Our online Registration system is modern, easy, and custom designed to offer our participants and their schools a simple and secure process.
Please feel free to contact us with questions, special needs, or concerns. We’re happy to help.
