• Our regional shows are great
fun with lots of wonderful talent! We ask your cooperation of following during
the show to help make it go as smoothly as possible
• Video taping is not allowed
at our events, as our rules state. In order to provide for those participants
who desire to have a video tape of their routine, we’ll be taping each
performance. They can be ordered at the registration table. You are, of
course, the only one that can purchase your tape. In the case of duets,
trios, and groups, the teacher must sign for the purchase of the tape. The
cost is $25 for the first routine and $12 for each additional routine on the
same tape, plus a $4 mailing charge per tape. They will be sent to you within
4 weeks after the show. Videos must be ordered at the show or within one week
after the show. After that time, they may not be available.
• We have scheduled the show to
avoid almost all performing time conflicts. If you think you may have one,
check with the registration desk or announcers and they can look up a more
specific performance time for you, or you can use approximately 3 minutes
times each performance to check it out yourself. If it looks like a conflict,
the announcers will help you solve the problem.
• All routines are lined up in
random order by computer within categories so no one is always first or last.
Everyone is expected to perform in the order published. If you have a
specific scheduling conflict, please discuss it with the
announcer, otherwise you need
to be ready to perform at your time in order not to cause scheduling problems
for others! If you perform out of order, video playback during awards may not
• There will be large
crowds so start out early and take your time getting to where you are going.
• Line up for your dance only
about 2-3 numbers ahead to avoid crowding in the wings.
• Turn in your music tapes 3
numbers ahead of when you perform to the announcer. It should not be in a
case and it needs to be labeled with the name of your routine and contestant
number. You may pick up your tape as soon as you are done performing.
• Seat saving in general is not
allowed. Let’s let consideration to others guide our actions! If you
are leaving for more than a few minutes, please let others use your seat.
Many people wish to sit and watch for only a short time to see their
child’s performance. Please be courteous to them and they will do the
same for you.
• During group awards, the entire
group is welcome to come on stage, but select only one person to accept the
award and to go back to the awards table to collect the awards. This person
needs to know the number of people in your group.
• Please don’t sit
in or block aisles.
• If a
teacher needs her/his music played at a speed faster or slower than normal,
please tell the announcer when you hand in your tape.
Please take care of you own
trash, and don’t litter the auditorium.
