A message about the Coronavirus from the Encore DCS Staff

March 30, 2020

To our Encore DCS dance family,

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we have had to make difficult decisions regarding our competitions this season.   At this time, in response to the closing of venues and the President’s orders to continue social distancing through the month of April, all events through May 3 have been postponed and/or relocated.  Because this is an evolving situation and may vary by region, we will make decisions on events after May 3 within the next three weeks. 

At this time, we have space in the following competitions:

Gatlinburg, TN  - May 15-17

Jekyll Island, GA  - May 15-17

Rocky Mount, NC  - May 22-24

Winston Salem, NC  - May 22-24

Chattanooga, TN – May 29-31

Fort Mill, SC – May 29-31

Hershey, PA – June 5-7

Lancaster, PA – June 19-21

Grand Finals – Charleston, SC – July 7-12

We will continue working diligently to update our website with host hotels and other pertinent information as it becomes available. 

Please NOTE: If you have booked your hotel for one of the cancelled or postponed events please make sure you Cancel your reservation asap. We can certainly work with you for hotels on our cities that have Relocated. (Contact Don @ 904.641-0924 for help)

Parents and students, we respectfully ask that you reach out to your teachers and studio directors with questions about upcoming events.  They will be the first to know what is going on and will be able to get information to you much quicker than we can.  Teachers, if you have any questions or would like to transfer your routines to another location please let us know.  As always, we are here to help you in any way we can. We know you and your students have worked very hard to prepare for competition and we can’t wait to see everyone take the stage again this year. The dance community is a strong one and we will all be dancing together again soon!
