During the Dance Year we encourage Parents to chat about their Dancer as we care about each of them, their dance dreams and their success. Auditions are different: Challenging a Dancer’s placement, the results of an audition, asking for a Dancer to be moved -  is never appropriate.  If you are not wanting to accept the Competition Team Placement Offer - no problem. In accepting the Competition Team Placement offer we count on your trust, allowing us to place Dancers so we are able to celebrate success.  We have an exciting year planned and look forward to your Dancer being part of it. 

Thank you for choosing Karen Clark Dance Studio!

Competition Schedule for 2021/2022
At this time we are not 100% sure of what our competition year will look like. However, we are ahead of where we were this time last year and we remain hopeful.   We will proceed with registration and make decisions in the fall.
