Carolina Dance Masters is proud of the opportunities we present for our CDM Members and their students to showcase their talents and personalities. Our Solo Title Scholarship Pageant is no exception. We hold a preliminary competition in September in which members’ students may enter one of four age divisions—Petite, Junior Miss, Teen Miss, and Miss Dance. We also have the same four age divisions for our young men—Master, Junior Mister, Teen Mister, and Mister Dance. The top 10 in each age division will then move on to the Finals held at our annual Convention in November.
In November, finalists participate in rigorous competition where they take part in classes, interviews, and solo performances. At the end of the weekend, winners are chosen based on their cumulative scores, and the top competitors from each category represent our chapter in the Nationals competition held by Dance Masters of America.
Solo Title Prelims will be September 23rd. Finalists will perform in November at CDM Convention November 16-19th.
