Has anyone ever had an issue with NYCDA not letting a student registered with a studio do a solo if there wasn't a teacher registered for the teacher convention? I have known plenty of dancers that do solos there and don't have a teacher even attend.

Yes, it is in their rules.
Competition Registration Soloists do not need to be entered in a group, line or production in order to compete. Soloists MUST have a registered teacher for the workshop.

That is NYCDA's rule, yes. In order to do a solo there must be a teacher registered. It's on their website. You will frequently see soloists, however, that don't have teachers in attendance... that's typically because a teacher had attended in a previous city, and once teachers have had a paid registration at one city all the rest of the cities they register for are free. So the teacher will go ahead and "register" because it doesn't cost them anything to do so, but not actually attend.

Registering and attending are 2 different things. Nowhere does it say a teacher must attend.
