Royce's decision to start the Artistic Dreams Dance Competition was a dream she set in her head many years ago after attending so many competitions that priced out many companies. The goal for Artistic Dreams is to give all teams, whether clubs, organizations, schools, companies, studios, etc a competition that all can afford. A competition where you can possibly win more than you spend. A competition about DANCE! A competition built on old school competition! No long adjudication ceremonies,no judges awards, no competition without warm-up time and finally level stipulations based on skill division.
