SHOW IS UNDERWAY. Join us at the venue or watch online.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO TAPING WILL BE PROHIBITED
Photography and videotaping will only be allowed during awards presentations. This rule will be strictly enforced and has been established to protect the rights of the studio owners, directors and/or teachers. We also want to prevent unauthorized photos from being used elsewhere in a questionable manner. Professional performance photos and videos will be available from Alive Video and Photo for those who may be interested.
CHARITY DANCE DOWN
Talent On Parade has been thrilled to donate literally thousands of dollars to many deserving charities over the years with your generous support. We will continue in that tradition with the return of the TOP Charity Dance Down. Students who donate $5 or more to our sponsored charities at the show will receive a special ticket that will allow them to participate. These students will learn a quick combination on stage and then dance down to a winner. The winner will receive a special plaque and a pair of TOMS Shoes. 100% of the money collected will be donated to Drea’s Dream, a dance therapy/expressive movement program for children with cancer and special needs (dreasdream.org). Check the general schedule below for Charity Dance Down times.
Studio directors must check in at the T.O.P. Shop merchandise table upon arrival. At check in they will be provided a folder that will include, among other things, act number labels that must be applied to your music prior to turning it in at the sound table. Following each act the performance music will be placed on a large black box behind the sound table. You can then claim that music anytime thereafter, but we cannot be responsible for it once it has been placed on the box. Also included in the studio director folder will be a score sheet claim ticket. Studio directors will need to keep track of that ticket as he or she will need to present it at the tabulators’ table after the awards ceremony following your final act of the weekend to claim critiques and score sheets.
