Symposium Talent Contest is a midwest based dance competition that has been hosting events for over 35 years. Symposium's directors, Carrie and Tyler Haydon are sensitive to the needs of dancers, dance teachers, future professional performers and parents alike because they fill all of those rolls themselves. For almost two decades, both Carrie and Tyler have been handing down their craft to young dancers and now they are very excited to take the lead handed over by Melissa and Jason Westphal. The Haydons believe in tradition, and hope to reach and surpass the high standards that have been set by Melissa and Jason. The Symposium Talent Contest judging pool is comprised of dance teachers/studio owners, and working industry professionals who also have years of teaching experience.
