Awards

At Cathy Roe's Ultimate (CRU) Dance every dancer is recognized with an award! Each performer is given an award for each dance in which they participated. Each routine is adjudicated with all the judges comments given to the studios on one CD at the end of the competition.

 

Studios are awarded with our custom plaques which display the studio name and are embellished with a jewel to represent the placement of each entry. Performers are awarded medals and plaques with trophies awarded for our highest scores in each category for the Novice, Intermediate Competitive, and Elite Competitive levels.  The overall highest scoring entries of the competition receive our the big  trophies.
