How to register for CDP2 Advanced:

  1. Complete the CDP2 Advanced Resume form, or create your own dance resume.

  2. Select a CDP event to attend, so we can dance together. All events are on our Dance with Us page.

  3. Send us an email at crashdanceproductions@gmail.com, letting us know what event you’ll be attending. Be sure to introduce yourself when you come, and don’t forget to bring a copy of your resume!

  4. After we’re done dancing, we will sit down together for an informal interview. The purpose is to learn more about you, why you want to be part of our program, and for you to ask questions. Parents are welcome to sit in on the interview.

  5. Once you have been approved for registration, we will share all pertinent forms and documents with you and your family.
