PROP & SHOE REGULATIONS
In the event of a natural disaster, terrorist attack, health epidemic, or involuntary cancellation of contest date or location no refunds will be made. Danceline will make every effort to reschedule or relocate the event.
Fire, swords, knives and other dangerous props are prohibited. Simulted weapons with dull, safe edges are accepted with prior approval. No liquid, gel, glitter or other similar substance that would affect dancing surface is allowed. All props and shoes must be detailed with rubber or safe material that will not damage performance area floor. The school, studio, or performer will be held responsible for any damages that may occur. Tap shoes are not allowed directly on gym floor. If you perform a tap routine, please bring appropriate tab boards or other protective surface.
Performances will be on a regulation size basketball court (96' x 50'.) for most performance. Please note that solos and ensembles may be on a stage at some locations. Stage performances will be noted on the competition schedule.
Host schools at each contest will provide various menus to offer the public for all meals of the day. Please note this is a fundraiser for this team and they appreciate your support. No outside food or drinks will be allowed. Please do not bring in ice chests. We appreciate your consideration.
Professional judges will evaluate each performance in the areas of technique, showmanship, choreography, execution, appearance and overall effect. Points may be deducted in the areas of appearance, choreography and/or overall impression categories should costuming, movements, or music be deemed inappropriate for all audience levels. Should a dancer verbally expel inappropriate language while performing, a lower rating will automatically be assigned. This will be determined at the discretion of the judging panel. All judges decisions are final.
All music can be on a high quality CD or mp3 player. All music should be brought to the sound table upon registration/check-in to contest site. Please label each CD with School/Studio Name, Team/Solo Name & Category. It is not the responsibility of Danceline or our sound tech to edit music on site or during a performance. All music should be edited before the day of the contest. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the director to pick up all music either throughout the day or at the end of the competition.
Please note that this is a professional competition and performers are expected to be prepared and well rehearsed. There should not be coaching from the directors, choreographers or audience members during the performance time. Adjudicators may deduct points for coaching during a performance.
