“This April 9 date in Toronto is already sold out,” says Ashley Daychak, creative director at Performing Dance Arts. “That should give a good indication of just how popular and professional this dance competition has become.”

MOVE will feature four days of competition, with all finalists performing on the fourth day. The competition is split by age into junior, intermediate, and senior groups.

“At the end of the day, we want to perform well and advance as far as we can,” Daychak adds. “While we do provide dance lessons for casual dancers at our studio as well, when we’re at these events, we intend to compete. That’s why we prepare our dancers well enough to give them a chance to win.”

Cash and scholarship prizes will be given away to the first, second, and third place winners for each division. Choice awards will also be given for choreography, most potential, and studio spirit. MOVE also gives every participant a trophy regardless of placement.

“We at Performing Dance Arts think it’s great to have so many categories and award these different prizes,” Daychak concludes. “Everyone who participates in this competition is there because they are exceptional in their own right and they all deserve to be acknowledged.”
