"Our students at Rachel's Ballet enjoyed the Californian Dance Classics competition last year and we are all looking forward to competing in the upcoming year. I was impressed with the organization and judges Conny put together; Definitely a highlight of our competition 2017 year. We have been searching for a good Ballet/Contemporary competition to enter for our school and was pleased to support Conny as the founder of CDC. Great job Conny, for your first successful competition last year. I'm sure there will be many more successful years to come."

Rachel Tan
Director - Rachel's Ballet
Fremont, CA

"I hardly know where to begin... I had the most wonderful opportunity and experience to be part of your amazing dance competition. It is obvious that you (Conny) and your team invested much work, time and effort into making your debut CDC Competitions such a success. It seemed no detail was overlooked. It was not only a huge privilege to be invited to judge the first competition, but also to work with both Olivier Pardina and Alexander "Sasha" Greschenko. I think Sasha was amused that we were three judges from three different countries. He kept saying France, England and Russia with great enthusiasm! I know that you will receive positive feedback from the teachers and have new teachers and directors approaching you with regard to next years' competitions once they hear how marvelous it was."

Sandra Burnham
Examiner, Royal Academy of Dance

"CDC is a wonderful competition, truly geared toward the dancers needs. Efficient, detail oriented organization, with great communication. My daughter enjoyed and benefited greatly from her classes with the CDC Master Teachers and the supportive atmosphere. An amazing experience all around."

Henny Naumann-Cain
Parent of Competitor

"Conny and her team at California Dance Classics have put together a ballet competition that rivals any others out there. Our studio attended the inaugural year of CDC and our dancers had a wonderful experience. Not only were the master class workshops outstanding, the feedback received after competing was thorough, fair and detailed. In addition, some of our dancers were awarded scholarships to top summer programs. During the competition part of the weekend, we found the judges to be not only supportive of our dancers, but also true professionals. For any studio looking for a terrific ballet competition to attend you cannot go wrong with California Dance Classics."

Yoira Esquivel Brito
Parent of Competitor

"California Dance Classics is by far one of the most professionally organized competitions that we have attended. The level and professionalism of the director, Conny Mathot, as well as the highly skilled and experienced judges/teachers was incredible. The master classes provided such a great opportunity for the students to get to learn from the wonderful teachers, as well as have that experience of taking class on stage, while under the watchful eyes of the judges, and learn how to handle themselves under pressure. The feedback that the students received from the judges was very thoughtful and useful for improvement! Over all we had an extremely positive experience participating in California Dance Classics and we look forward to attending this competition again!"
