Celebrity is proud to present a convention where teachers and students can express themselves through the many styles of dance. While we promote all styles of dance, we strive to keep our events family friendly. At Celebrity, we believe routines containing inappropriate material should be penalized. We realize there are many different ways to define what is inappropriate, therefore we have selected to have our Celebrity Judges determine what they believe to be family friendly. We hope we can all work together to keep Celebrity Events appropriate for our family viewers. Everyone at Celebrity Worldwide would like to thank you in advance for your hard work and dedication to dance and the Celebrity Experience.
