1) Absolutely NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED.

 

2) Videotaping of your studio’s routine is allowed. Videotaping of another studio’s routine is prohibited. Please remember to stay well back from the stage so you don’t distract the dancers.

 

3) Parents are welcome in the dressing rooms, but NOT BACKSTAGE or the REHEARSAL room PLEASE!

 

4) The contestants will be judged during their routines and given a mark and/or written comments. Each instructor will be able to pick up a thumb drive and/or email of the adjudications at the end of each day.

  • A MARK OF 75-79 IS ELIGIBLE FOR BRONZE

 

There will be a maximum of 3 places awarded per category: (1st, 2nd & 3rd) 1st place goes to the routine with the highest mark in that category. It DOES NOT GUARANTEE A GOLD CHARM!! (e.g.) If there are 3 dancers with marks of 83, 82 & 79, the 83 will be 1st place with a silver (as that mark rates). The 82 would come 2nd and also receive a silver charm and the 79 would be 3rd with a bronze charm. TIES MAY BE AWARDED!!
