Each year, CBA participates in the New York City Dance Alliance Regional Competition (NYCDA). NYCDA is a 25-city dance convention with a national finale in New York City. NYCDA awards scholarships and special opportunities at all regional conventions. The scholarship awards include an Outstanding Dancer Scholarship, Regional Class Scholarship, Rocketts ®Award, Perry-Mansfield Young Artist Program, STEPS on Broadway Summer Intensive, and the NYCDA Triple Threat Award.
Dancers from CBA audition for the opportunity to represent CBA at this prestigious dance competition. In addition to a weekend of competition, dancers have the opportunity to participate in workshop classes throughout the weekend from nationally recognized dance instructors.
Dancers (and families) are asked to make additional time and financial investments in order to participate. Past participants have earned scholarships and were granted many distinguished awards.
